Publication Date: January 19th 2015
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Ward de’Ath should be dead by now. Instead, he’s chasing after a soul-eating creature—that he unleashed— and is bent on stopping her before she slaughters more innocents. Fortunately, Celia Carlyle remains by his side, a nobleman’s gorgeous and deadly daughter, who is…well, dead.
Celia claims she’ll champion Ward wherever he goes, even when she thinks his quest is hopeless. He can only hope her pledge comes from her heart, and not because she’s bound to him through his magic.
When they enter Dulthyne, they stumble upon a dark power that threatens the entire town. Ward, with his unreliable necromancy, is determined to help but finds himself ensnared in the lure of white-hot magic…blood magic he struggles to resist. But if Celia’s love is a lie, it might just doom his soul to the dark arts forever.

Ward’s Theme Songs
One of the things I’ve found interesting about writing in a series with continuous main characters is watching the way they grow. As an author, you know you’ll put your characters into situations that will challenge them, stretch them (even torture them a little… all right, in Ward’s case a lot), but you’re never really sure, until they’re in the situation (or through it) how they’ll react and who they’ll become.
With Ward, I initially saw his theme song as Stayin’ Alive by the Bee Gees.
And while it’s true for pretty much the entire series, by the time we get into the third and penultimate book in the series, I feel like Carry on Wayward Son by Kansas is also now a fitting theme song. I wonder if Ward’s theme song will change for the last book?
I have always been drawn to story telling. In fact, I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t telling a story in my head or on paper. In grade school, we had journal writing time which I turned into story telling time, weaving tales of magic and adventure that mimicked the fairy tales and myths that I loved to read. It was there, with the help of two very special teachers, that I nurtured this love and started my journey as a writer.
I write fantasy, paranormal romance, and everything in between, seasoned with a good dash of adventure and mystery. Join me on my tales of magic, adventure, and romance.
