The water deity curse affects Heather's standard of living, hopes and expectation.
But laying down her soul as a propitiatory to a witch turns around her situation, mortgaging the future.
I received this book for reviewing from the author. It in no way affected my review. I wanted so much to give this book a high rating. It is the authors first novel and in some ways it was very obvious.
I liked the idea of the book and in many respects it wasn't a bad book. Keeper of the Lesser Flame has a really good storyline. I have read many books and none had a feeling like this one. It was like a thriller book with a happy ending.
Unfortunately it was very flawed. From editing and time jumps it is very obvious this is Damilola's first book. I personally don't mind editing errors (though I do notice them) but I do mind time jumps without any way they got to the point that they are at. For example *spoiler* Heather suddenly got married and had two kids when the last thing before that she didn't want anything to do with the guy.*spoiler end*
I needed more visualization for me to enjoy the book more but even with the lower review I didn't hate it. I give this book an Adult rating for strong sex scenes.
