Curse Breaker 2: Darkens
By Melinda Kucsera
Genre: Dark Christian Fantasy
Published: July 28, 2017
Summary From Goodreads:
God’s never had a warrior quite like Jerlo on his side.
That’s probably a good thing since a body and a book are unaccounted for. Both formerly belonged to a vanquished demon, but neither were found when the dust cleared. The question of what happened to them prods Jerlo to seek out the one person he swore he’d never speak to—a man everyone thinks is long dead. Jerlo’s relentless quest leads to the oubliette and a psycho’s cell where shadows of his past take him captive. Jerlo must outwit the dark force rising in his home without magic before he falls under its sway. The life of his ward hangs in the balance. One wrong move and the young man God asked him to protect will end up a mindless automaton, or worse, dead.
In a land where magic is their only hope, can a man of faith triumph?
Find out in Curse Breaker 2: Darkens the action-packed sequel to Curse Breaker: Enchanted. Christian Fantasy meets Dark Fantasy in this fast-paced narrative pitting Jerlo against monsters both inside his mind and outside it. God has never had such a flawed champion on his team. Fans of C.S. Lewis will enjoy Jerlo’s quest to safeguard the young man he wronged. Get Curse Breaker 2: Darkens today!

Tell Us About Yourself
Name: Sara Jones
Let’s see…I’m an only child. I was raised in San Diego, California. My parents died in a car crash while I was attending college. After graduation, I went to work for Crussetts’ Investment Company. That’s where I met the charming, handsome Conner Crussett when he came into town to check on his family’s business. We dated for almost a year before he convinced me to transfer to the Houston office and move in with him. For three years I felt happy living with him. Then, I discovered the truth about his family’s real business, organized crime. That was when I left him, yet I still long to be in his arms.
Describe your appearance in 10 words or less. Attractive, 24, 5’8”, slender, long brown hair, brown eyes.
Would you kill for those you love? Yes. If someone I care about can’t defend themselves, I won’t hesitate to step into the fight.
Can you remember something from your childhood which influences your behaviour? How do you think it influences you? My parents were arachnologists and had a state-of-the-art lab attached to our home. I had fun watching all the beautiful different species. My parents set up a spider colony in my bedroom so I could also enjoy them. Spiders were respected and cared for in our home. That’s probably why I cherish them and want to keep them safe.
Please give us an interesting and unusual fact about yourself. When I was in elementary school, I was always getting into trouble because of the spiders I sometimes carried in my backpack.

Name and describe a food from your world. Venotrolia: human blood tainted with poisonous venom from mutant hobo spiders.
Does your world have any supernatural/mystical beings? Please tell us about some. Tegens.

They can only be destroyed by fire.
Within your civilisation what do you think is the most important discovery/invention? A formula invented by Sir Randolph Heinrich that was used in the nineteenth century to turn some humans into Tegens.
