READ ALL ABOUT IT: The Unholy by Paul DeBlassie III

Hi everyone!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're shining the book spotlight on a Paranormal Thriller thanks to Rebecca's Writing Services.  When I saw the invite cross my inbox I thought...whoa...creepy cover!  Now that I look at it again, I do suppose it takes the form of your frame of mind at the time of notice but never the less, the synopsis still sounds rather...interesting.  Ladies and gents, today's book of choice....

The Unholy 
Paul DeBlassie III
Sunstone Press

About the book...
 "A young curandera, a medicine woman, intent on uncovering the secrets of her past is forced into a life-and-death battle against an evil Archbishop. Set in the mystic land of Aztlan, the Unholy is a novel of destiny as healer and slayer. native lore of dreams and visions, shape changing, and natural magic work to spin a neo-gothic web in which sadness and mystery lure the unsuspecting into a twilight realm of discovery and decision." 


Well, whatcha' think?
Feel free to share both here and out THERE...
...but before you go, let's dig a little deeper.
From the author himself....


 Why I Wrote This Book
Writing The Unholy was motivated by my work treating survivors of the dark side of religion for over thirty years.  The dark side of religion generates a shame-based spirituality, and when people experience the dark side of religion their unconscious minds are profoundly violated. Rather than writing a self-help book for people who have encountered the dark side of religion, I decided to write a novel because images and symbols in fiction affect the unconscious mind in ways that information in nonfiction does not; they move straight into the unconscious mind, while information in nonfiction self-help books stays on the level of the conscious mind. Only by accessing healing images and symbols at the level of the unconscious mind, such as through stories like The Unholy, do people who have been injured by the dark side of religion begin to heal. And as they heal, they are able to free themselves from the effects of a shame-based spirituality and instead embrace a soul-based spirituality.

Though a bit tired of the paranormal at the moment, or at least that's tired of the paranormal as far as vampires, werewolves and the like go, this does sound that bit different (I can't remember coming across a curandera before) and is therefore definitely one I'll keep a look out for.
