There's no saying Bye-Bye to this Banshee…
Weeks ago, I was seconds away from calling an exorcist to deal with my ghostly squatter; but as it turned out, she was actually here to help.
Now, my Banshee has gone from 'uninvited guest' to 'tour guide' because she's coming to take Shade and me into the Realm of Souls.
And why are we going there?
Turns out that's where Shade's brother, the Witch King, is being held—and of course, my magic is the only thing that can set him free.
But surviving the barren hell that is the Soul Realm is a whole other ballgame.
And even with all the training I'm being given and my bracelet pumping magical steroids into my skin, I'm still not sure I'm ready to face this.
But I don't have time to develop a backup plan, because if I stay too long in the Realm of Souls...
I can't come back.More info →
I expected midlife to change me, but I never expected this…
Finding out that my origins have cosmic ramifications has really put the pressure on me. And while my friends and I defied the odds and stopped the Pretender, our victory left unexpected consequences.
Mainly my boyfriend becoming my enemy—and my potential old-new love interest returning to my life.
On top of that, Fallen villains created open deals with immortal gods who revel in chaos.
And If I want to save the magical and human worlds from destruction, I’ll have to reconcile my mysterious family lineage with my mortal life.
But what I crave most is my own happily ever after, but in order to get that, I’ll have to decide what I’m willing to sacrifice to keep the people and town I love safe.
Because peace always comes at a price; so what will mine be?More info →
On my list of things I never thought I’d hear myself say; ‘Werewolves’ are the best kissers’ is certainly at the top. But here I am, one sheriff-shifter boyfriend later, and it’s absolutely true.
Who knew that all it took to fix my love life was a man who could walk on all fours?
After the Pretender’s defeat, life in Mystic Falls has mostly moved on, but I can’t seem to shake this nagging feeling that something isn’t right. And whether by choice—or force—the other man who held a piece of my heart, Jack, is still missing.
And now, with more mysterious disappearances emerging, it’s clear that things aren’t as peaceful as they seem. My investigative instincts tell me there’s a new monster on the loose—and if I don’t discover them, they’ll finish what the Pretender started and destroy everything I’ve come to love.
But in order to save Mystic Falls, the only place I’ve ever belonged, I’ll have to face my past to pave a new way forward. Armed with my favorite boots, my furry familiar, and my posse of magical misfits, we’re going to kick some major bad guy booty.
