I have lived through a world of books for as long as I can remember. Now I feel privileged to have turned my passion into something more. Please take the time to become acquainted with my work.
She is a young woman with no family. He is an ancient god-king who has lost everyone and everything. When they finally meet, only one can survive.
When nineteen-year-old Alex Kincaid heads out to the Nataraja Dance Hall, she hardly expects to be attacked -- much less attempted murder committed by her blind date! Later, Alex receives a golden mask from a mysterious benefactor. Are these events related to the recurring nightmares haunting her?
Alex soon discovers that she is now a Mask Bearer. This secret society is dedicated to preserving and protecting the knowledge and power of the ancient masks. In the wrong hands, that power could end the world as we know it.
Join Alex and her friends as she tries to unravel the mysteries surrounding her sudden inheritance. Alex is also trying to contend with her complicated feelings for Gabriel Reyes, an attractive friend intent on winning her heart. Will Alex outlive the ancient vendetta that she inherited along with the golden treasure? Will Set, the ancient god of storms and disorder, allow Alex to survive his terrible retribution.
Mysterious, exhilarating, and utterly gripping, Nora Delzelle’s entertaining fantasy takes readers through a twisted journey they will never want to end.
Previously published with the title Death Mask
The lightning and thunder would come soon. She had learned to read the telltale signs.
In June 2021, I published my first book, Death Mask. It was a cherished dream to write a novel. Growing up, I had always been the quiet, nerdy girl in a corner. I wanted to express these stories that were trapped inside finally. I love fantasy, and so I wrote my story in that genre. I didn't want a typical story about fairies, vampires, or alpha males, though I love those. I just wanted a fun yarn about a young girl getting caught in a supernatural dilemma. I published that story, and it has been a rollercoaster ride ever since. Many people loved the book and thought it was fun. Some others did not like it. The book won a Silver Award from the Literary Titans, who are a fantastic bunch of people. But I found myself paying attention to the reviews that were not so stellar. What was wrong? I decided to unpublish my book and try to fix and polish what I could. I hope to have it back out there on the virtual shelves by the end of 2021, to the delight of some and groans of others. It is now titled The Secrets of the Kings. You can be the judge if it is improved. Either way, I'd like to hear what you think, both good and bad. I'll never grow as a writer if I don't try to listen and learn. For now, what do you think of the new title?
