The Red Girl is the first book in the Children of Herumai fantasy series. It follows the interviews of Victor Rotaru by journalist Madelyn Hamilton. This is a dialogue-only book.
When a gritty young journalist is ordered to interview Victor Rotaru, a 43-year-old Romanian ‘’ monster hunter’’, she naturally views it as an attempt at career sabotage. But Madelyn soon realizes that Victor is neither insane nor a con artist. His story quickly draws her in, gradually revealing a sinister hidden world, ever encroaching on her rational, materialistic reality.
As the interviews progress, the once skeptical journalist starts to realize that her role in Victor’s story may be larger than she had anticipated. She finds herself unable to quit, hoping for the ongoing cat and mouse game to reach its conclusion.
THE RED GIRL is a novel about brutally hard choices and existential dilemmas, presented in pure dialogue form. The reader is invited to witness the story unfold, as every choice, action, and thought is given voice by the characters. But some things are beyond words and some truths must remain unspoken.
