How far would you go to protect your home?

And is the devil willing to go further? 

Kerella has her own fantasy world where the rulers of the afterlife can’t be trusted, librarians are rewriting history, and mathematicians eat babies. Her father is the devil, and she’s on the run from an arranged marriage.

In the real world, ‘The Casa Martyrs’ needs to win a charity Battle of the Bands to save the local community centre, and Kerella is their new keyboardist.

Wrapped up in her imagination, she decides the guitarist is her ‘soul mate’ helping her escape the clutches of her intended suitor, and the bassist is the devil. 

When she realises her stories are putting her sanity and victory at the battle of the bands at risk, she takes action to burn her fantasy world down. By doing so, she’s putting her ‘soul mate’s’ life in danger, delivering herself back into an arranged marriage, and making the most humiliating mistake of her life. 

But it’s not like her fantasy world is real…

The Casa Martyrs by Moti Black is an absolute masterpiece! With a revolutionary perspective that has impacted my life for the better. I’ve never related to a character the way that I have related to the main character, Kerella.

Being an autistic person myself, I related to so many things about Kerella. The way people treated her. The way she thinks, talks, acts. Relating to her love of music, tarot, art, and love of history was an absolute bonus! Experiencing this kind of representation had me in tears on multiple occasions. Her last song. Wow, just wow! Chills. Chills. Chills.

I’ve always been interested in spirituality and the occult, so I loved the Kaetian world, themes of reincarnation, and the different realms featured in this story. I feel as though I learned many valuable lessons. How to be more confident and kind to myself is one that comes to mind. Kerella is so damn cool. Maybe I am too!
