Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The conflict between the Aesir and the powers of Hel, led by Loki, resulted in the prophesied battle of Ragnarök, and the death of the gods. The realms were destroyed, and with no one left to stop the surviving demons and giants from escaping what was once the realm of the gods, they crossed the Bifrost Bridge into Midgard. The Vanir managed to save two humans before Midgard was flooded, and kept them safe until the floodwaters receded. A new tribe was created, led by the Goddess Danu. This new tribe was called the Tuatha De Danann, and their mission was to return the humans to Midgard, and keep a watchful eye on them until their numbers increased. However, the years quickly turned into centuries, and they lost their ability to feel anything but disdain. Their arrogance and vanity corrupted them, and they turned their backs on the humans… unaware that the demons and giants were encroaching upon their land. Foreseeing the end of the Tuatha De Danann at the hands of the Milesians (whose ancestors were the humans they had saved), Danu decided that the only way to ensure a future for her people while saving the humans from the encroaching demons and giants, was to insert events into the timeline that wouldn’t interfere with what ‘must be’… and so the story begins: Darkness (Book 1) Fane has made it his life’s mission to destroy the creature who wiped out his entire tribe and damned him to an endless life of roaming and insatiable hunger, but when he finally catches up with him in London, he discovers that the creature has a weakness… a daughter. Whether he likes it or not, his mission is about to change. Sarah has no idea what a normal life is, but she wants one. She wants the freedom to explore the world outside the imposing mansion that is her prison. She wants to be loved, to feel passion, but her father’s menacing shadow envelopes her, and it’s all people see when they look at her. Except for Fane. He sees her. He wants her… but to what end? The Lingering Shadows (Book 2) When Divona, the Goddess of Fertility, is sent into the future in order to retrieve King Nuada’s sword, she is told by Danu that she is following her destiny. However, finding the sword isn’t as easy as she’d thought… and when she finds herself falling for Sef, the handsome and seductive man who has agreed to help her find the sword, she begins to wonder if her destiny is actually the sword… or him. Sef is preparing to follow in his parents’ footsteps by closing the door on the past and taking a step into a new beginning, but before the first step is even taken, Divona suddenly appears in his bedchamber. The fiery-haired goddess has been sent to retrieve the sword his father was tasked to guard by the Knights Templar. The sweetly sensual, naïve and incredibly stubborn goddess inflames his senses, making him yearn for a future he had never even dared to hope for… until now. The problem is, although he can sense her attraction to him, she isn’t going to let him into her heart without a fight. The Mists of Avalon (Book 3) Having mastered her skills as a healer and animal whisperer, Alana seeks guidance from Danu in order to help her locate her life-mate. Setting off on the greatest adventure of her life, one that will take her to the one man she can ever truly love, she travels to Glastonbury, England, in order to climb to the top of the Tor before dusk on the first day of March. When Toran comes across a female being assaulted by a man holding a knife, he takes the man out with a laser shot to the head. Pulling the dead man off of the stunned female, he’s taken aback by her appearance. In a world filled with black-haired, grey-eyed people, she’s like a ray of sunshine. Her golden blond hair and sparkling amber-coloured eyes make her an anomaly... and she insists she’s from London! The problem is, London no longer exists. It was destroyed in the 1940’s.
