Act of Redemption by C.C. Cole

First Book Of The Gastar Series: Act Of Redemption

Author C.C. Cole takes an imaginative walk on the darker side of fantasy in her new book, Act of Redemption . Her heroine, Shevata, takes center stage to overcome an unthinkable evil force. In the story, Shevata battles demons, survives imprisonment, and faces the lord of the dead to save the human race. To Cole, author and history buff, Shevata is much more than a post-apocalyptic heroine.

For more information you can visit the author's website at: gastarseries.com

The inspiration for Shevata stems from a personal battle that has played out in Cole's life for years. Her sister Cindy, to whom the book is dedicated, was a victim of domestic violence homicide.  "The book series started as my creative outlet when my sister was killed," says Cole. "Shevata is a strong willed woman who prevails over evil-she survives what Cindy could not. I would like to show others that good can come about when people stick together." Shevata is the furthest thing from a damsel in distress. A warrior child who has the ability to move objects with her mind, her mission is to rescue the innocent people of Gastar. The story deviates from the traditional 'young kid gets tough' angle..Shevata is already powerful but, in a unique plot twist, finds that power isn't everything.  Cole creates  action that is sudden and riveting with an ending that will drive you crazy waiting for the sequel.

Press Release

--Author pens fantasy novel to help overcome sister's death In C.C. Cole's new book, Act of Redemption , a heroine, Shevata, takes center stage to overcome an unthinkable evil force. In the story, Shevata battles demons, survives imprisonment, and faces the lord of the dead to save the human race. To Cole, author and history buff, Shevata is much more than a post-apocalyptic heroine. The inspiration for Shevata stems from a personal battle in Cole's life. Her sister Cindy, to whom the book is dedicated, was as killed as a victim of domestic violence.  "The book series started as my creative outlet when my sister was killed," says Cole. "Shevata is a strong-willed woman who prevails over evil-she survives what Cindy could not." Shevata is the furthest thing from a damsel in distress. A warrior child who has the ability to move objects with her mind, Shevata's mission is to rescue the innocent people of Gastar. The beloved heroine survives hundreds of years of imprisonment, curses, epic battles, and demon attacks to continue on with her quest of killing Zermon, the lord of the dead, who threatens the remaining people of Gastar and human extinction as a whole.  "The book does bring out what good can happen when people come together," Cole adds. "It also shows it's easy to overestimate what we fear."  Many fantasy books follow a 'student, mentor, villain' formula.  Act of Redemption breaks the mold with a powerful, intelligent heroine who's not in need of a knight in shining armor to rescue her. Although at times Shevata stumbles, she bravely battles the lord of the dead to save the human race and her very own existence.            

Themes in Act of Redemption include:

  • How Shevata stands for much more than a heroine-the ultimate strength of a woman
  • The power of goodness that prevails when people work together
  • A vision of a post-apocalyptic world without humans
  • The importance of obeying the law, as Shevata ignoring the law in the story is what caused the trouble
  • Epic battles of good versus evil-what happens when the two worlds collide
  • A fantasy 'Hell' in which evil is bred C.C. Cole is a writer from rural Mississippi. Schooled in medicine, she lives in the suburbs with her family and greyhounds. In addition to fictional writing, she studies world history and martial arts. Act of Redemption is the first of a 4-part series spanning Shevata's long journey from war-weathered child with a horrific curse to life as a human. This book is dedicated to Cole's sister, Cindy, a victim of domestic violence. Act of Redemption is available for purchase on Amazon.com (First Book Of The Gastar Series: Act Of Redemption ) and AuthorHouse.com
