Emma Rose Crane.

Mattie Louise Hathaway.

Human.

Demon.

Living Reaper.

Goddess.

 

She is all of these things, yet she’s none of them.

 

She doesn’t understand how to be any of them.

 

She’s lost.

 

She’s about to come face to face with her own demise.

 

In the end, which will she be? All of them? None of them?

 

Or will the darkness take over and create something new altogether when she touches the Eternity Jewels?

 

Are Emma Rose and Mattie Louise gone forever?

So who am I?

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

One Prince. One Witch. One Fate.
The upheaval in my life began the moment a prince stumbled into my house and asked me to read his fortune. Any other night, I might have made an excuse to get him to leave, but this was no normal visit. My fingers prickled to touch him. So, I granted his request by handing him a single wishbone. When he snapped it, the wish … bled.
Hearing me suck in a shocked breath, he asked what it meant. Such an ominous omen could only mean one thing: his death was imminent. Fate revealed that he wouldn’t die of natural causes. Someone wanted him dead. Stunned by the revelation, the man I now knew as Prince Tauren disappeared into a night I feared he wouldn’t survive. The following day, I received an invitation to the castle. While it seemed the prince believed I could intervene and uncover who was plotting his death, his motives didn’t stop there. I was being summoned to join twelve other women in vying for the opportunity to be his wife and future queen.
Going could mean jeopardizing my plans to reclaim my heritage and resurrect the House of Fate. But staying would guarantee Tauren’s death, and the blood of his wish would be on my hands.

Afflicted

(Trimarked Series: Book Two)

by CK Sorens

Blurb

Hope was dangerous for the Trimarked girl.

It’s been five weeks since Nicu saved Ember from the barrier, and she doesn’t know how long until he tells the Fae about her growing powers. She soon discovers the small openings she can create in the impenetrable barrier around the city of Trifecta no longer snap shut but now ease closed at her command.

Ember already balances on a fine line between accident and purpose; using her power intentionally will certainly bring the wrath of all three races. Though she doesn’t belong anywhere, she’s not willing to become a prisoner to any of the factions.

When a Witch Queen arrives in Trifecta with the goal to enslave the minds and bodies of magic users, Ember must take a different path: use without control. As the Queen gathers new followers, Ember may not have a choice whether she’ll expose her newfound strength if it means saving the few people she dares to call friends.

Afflicted is book two of six in the Trimarked Series; a YA dark, urban fantasy. Books 3-6 coming soon!

Nefari Ashcroft has finally claimed her crown and her title as Queen of the Shadow Kingdom. Now, she marches East to Salix with her army, and the armies of the countries who support her.

But war is never as easy as it sounds, because with war comes casualties.

Casualties are just one hurdle she has to deal with. Nefari’s army is at odds with one another while harvestmen rake paths through villages, killing all those who live there, and still somehow, someway, Nefari has to balance it all. It’s her fate to see this through.

How will she free her people when her plan is falling apart around her, when she knows that soon, she’ll meet the woman who stole everything from her?

Blurb:

I was born in the shadows of night. A witch destined to protect those who are vulnerable in their waiting hour. Like all those who came before me, this lineage was considered an honor, a gift given to a select few. 

My existence was expected to be a promise of simplicity and rituality. The one clear path between life and death. It proved to be anything but. 

As time passed, my mind began to wonder. My soul craving adventure outside of my darkened world. A life in the light… I could only imagine how spectacular that would be. 

Some saw this curiosity as the beginning of my fall. To me, it was the start… of my uprising.

Whenever she’s not reading or writing, Brandy is spending time with her family and friends, throwing around crazy ideas, teaching, and singing like a rock star at a concert for no one else but herself. She loves plants, but unfortunately is a killer of anything that requires water but can’t voice (scream) their needs.
