As the Winter Season Advances,Take a Trip Through a Brazilian Supernatural Mystery with "Tainted Odete"
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 Rogerio.
Tainted Odete is available in trade eBook formats on Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble, Casa del Libro, iBookstore, Kobo and XinXii.

After a series of unfortunate accidents, they will come up against the ghost of Odete, which overcomes the time and space barrier, to avenge her past.
About the Author
The Brazilian writer Rogério Sacchi de Frontini wrote the supernatural novel Tainted Odete in Portuguese. He launched the book in Portugal and in Brazil by Portuguese publisher Chiado and also an e-book written in Portuguese by Amazon.com. The return, he said, was good, but not enough. According to him, the English language has the potential to greatly increase the number of readers in the story of the slave girl who goes through the time portal to promote an ancestral revenge.
Today he lives in the city of Petrópolis, founded by Emperor Dom Pedro II. This city is located in the mountainous region of the State of Rio de Janeiro.

Born and raised in traditional families, Leopoldo and Luana get married. The groom insists in going to a small city in the mountains, named Miguel Pereira, to spend their honeymoon, although against the Family will.

After a series of unfortunate accidents, they will come up against the ghost of Odete, which overcomes the time barrier and space, to avenge her past.
For the doctorate in Literature, Vera Follain, Tainted Odete is much more than a horror story:
- Rogerio puts his literature to the service of what his own practice of writing often silents. Brings to light forgotten narratives, that have no record on the literature world, but, on occasion, may still haunt those who insist in disregarding the past or rewrite it into clean idealized versions.
