The perfect companion to those seeking answers to
ancestral questions, whether their thinkings take them to
destinations far away or simply take them from the comforts of
their own life.
As we move further into the winter reading season, we remind
readers of one of the best supernatural adventure novels of our
time - "Tainted Odete", written by Rogério Sacchi de Frontin.
Taking readers on an uneasy voyage of discovery and a thrilling
journey throughout Brazilian History, "Tainted Odete" tells
the provocative story of a slave girl who raised like a lady in
Colonial Brazil, where she has a fateful encounter with her
destiny. This supernatural novel has as subtext of the barely
digested history of slavery, forever ingrained in our soil
fertilized with the blood of black souls.
In print for less than a year, Frontin's Tainted Odete is
enchanting readers and haunting adventurers worldwide. The novel
has sold over one thousand copies in Portuguese - a limited market
for an independent producer like the writer.
“ Those who do not know influent people in Brazil have a
good reason to give up writing. However, I'm stubborn, determined.
I particularly admire the entrepreneur power of the anglo-saxon
people. Today, I took the financial risks and published the ebook
Tainted Odete, in English”, said
"Tainted Odete" is available in trade eBook formats on Amazon
Kindle, Barnes & Noble, Casa del Libro, iBookstore, Kobo and
