Strong is Sexy Heroine of the Week: Sari

Book: Tearing the Shroud, Mending the Shroud
Author: J.M. Bray
Heroine: Sari

Sari is introduced in Tearing the Shroud, my novel through Escape Publishing. She then plays a huge role in Mending the Shroud, book two of the series; it’s still in edit. As a child, Sari survives a flood, strapped in a tree by her father while both of her parents are swept into the night by the raging waters. This event plagues her for the rest of her life. The Matriarch takes her to the Cloister of Berdine where she is raised and trained as a Warrior. She develops a close relationship with another orphaned girl, Jolie. Despite losses that could understandably crush someone, by the time she is in her early twenties, Sari is promoted to the rank of Commander in charge of all the military aspects of the Cloister.

This happens in part because of her attention to detail but also due to her ability and desire to see those around her become the best people they can. Sari doesn’t rule with an iron fist, but a soft leather glove. Strong when necessary, but gentle enough to make people shine. She is able to give orders but willing to listen ot the ideas of the lowest Novice. Sari’s relationship with Jolie is source of rumors in the Cloister, are they friends or much more than that? I won’t spoil the story, but will say Sari loves Jolie deeply and is willing to sacrifice herself for Jolie’s happiness, even if that means losing her to someone else.

Tearing The ShroudBlurb:
Fall in love, be possessed, hunt a sorcerer and save the world — and Vincent thought calculus was tough.

1984 — Vincent expected college to be about freedom and girls, but then the nightmares of sorcery, monsters and other worlds began. Not even the surprising attention from his dream girl, Julie, could shake them.

Before he's even nailed his second date with Julie, he's possessed by Coleman, a warrior from another realm. Coleman is hell bent on defeating the monstrous Kafla who threatens to tear into Vincent's reality, changing both his and Coleman's worlds forever. They have one chance to stop them: Vincent must allow Coleman to share his body and wage war against the sorcerer.

Now it's up to them, the women they love, and Vincent's rag-tag bunch of role-playing and gaming friends to save the world, or see 1984 descend into the apocalypse.
