Lucky, Dorian Gray Novels Book 1 (US Only)

by: F.E. Bradley

Release Date: March 2019

Publisher: Bradley

 

About the Book:

Would you want to live if you had no other choice?

At 18 years old, Ellie Rose has just started college and is still living on her parent's farm to save money. Her life has been sheltered, but she has a plan to someday see the world. She's made at herself for wasting time daydreaming about a guy she saw one day in class, but after figuring out that he's been following her, she's desperate to find out why.

Her beliefs are tested when she learns of the curse on Dorian Gray. What if immortality was your curse and there was no way to escape? What if your touch would destroy everything you were near? Would you want to live if you had no other choice?

Dorian Gray is not the monstrous character from Oscar Wilde’s novel, but he did know the author and he is immortal. He’s in a small town trying to live with his curse when he sees familiar eyes starring at him out of a very different person.  

 

 

About the Author:

E. Bradley grew up on a small family farm in Central Wisconsin. She spent much of her young life surrounded by books and unusual pets. She first read Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray at the age of 17 precisely because it was on her high school’s list of banned books. She loved the character but imagined him in a very different story. 20 years later, she finally began to write that story down for others to share.

Ok so the timing of this book is kind of crazy for me, because I’ve recently been revisiting interpretations of The Picture of Dorian Gray - one of those novels that lingers, that keeps you asking questions long after the last chapter is closed.

This book’s title and cover make me want to return to those questions. Is Dorian’s immortality a gift of good fortune? A deceptive curse? Some inextricable combination of both? The ring speaks to the idea of eternity... and also hints at a central romantic relationship.

The synopsis, meanwhile, introduces Ellie Rose, whose youth and dreams will make her an interesting counterpart for Dorian Gray. I love that this reincarnation of Gray is not necessarily villainous, either - that readers will get to see him in a new context.

I like the title of the book and the 4 leaf clover on the cover. This sounds very interesting and mysterious.
