Hello lovelies and welcome to my stop on the The Unwanted blog tour! The Unwated is a young adult horror/supernatural book that I’ve been told is perfect for fall! It’s the second book in this series but it can be read as a standalone which I think is great!
In the remote, eastern European town of Borslav there is St. Sebastian orphanage, a place where people discard their unwanted children. For the American, Blaire Baker, it’s the perfect place tovolunteer her services. Paired with a cheerful volunteer nurse, Blaire is enthusiastic about the possibilities, but is quickly discouraged when she encounters the nefarious nature of the staff and the deplorable conditions of the facility and the children. Upon arrival, one of the children informs Blaire, “There’s something in the basement.”It isn’t long before strange things begin happening, including Blaire’s flashbacks of the accident that killed her parents. The children soon suffer injuries that Blaire, first, fears may be the deeds ofthe callous workers but she soon thinks the abuse may originate from a source that is less than human, something unwanted. The unwanted is coming but in order for Blaire to fight it, she must dig into St. Sebastian and herself in search of truth. Blaire wants nothing more than to help the children, but when she
discovers the tragedy that happened in the basement and learns that the same evil forces are still at work, it will be Blaire who needs help...There’s something in the basement.
When I am writing a book, I always create a Pinterest board for the project to inspire me to create dramatic visuals that can be incorporated into the work. The mood board that I created for The Unwanted is cold and lonely and reflects the emotions that flow through every person, place and thing in the story. St. Sebastian orphanage was once a good place, a place filled with the laughter of innocent children, but it has morphed into something sinister, something so dark and powerful that once it gets inside, one can never get it out.
