Kris Young wants nothing more than to be a normal girl. Thrust into a life she didn’t ask for, and faced with a future that she does not want, she sets off an adventure that she hopes will lead to her freedom. With her best friend’s life, the future of the Kala-Skotadi war, and her own soul at stake, failure is not an option.
Old and new allies unite on a quest against the demigods and Kris’s half-sister, Circe, the mastermind behind it all. Together, they fight to sever Kris and Alec from their evil ties once and for all, and rescue Callie from her own doomed fate. But Circe has other plans for them.
When an unexpected loss strikes the group, will Kris lose the will to go on? Or will a need for vengeance drive her to finally succeed?
Find out how the story of Kris, Nathan, Alec, and Callie will end in the epic conclusion to The Ignited Series, where, in the race against time and evil, all bets are off . . . and no one is safe.
“We could blow it apart with a gun,” Alec suggested.
I nodded my head, having already come to that conclusion. As I reached for the pistol secured in the waistband of my pants, Kris’s hand stopped me.
“Or . . .” she started with a teasing smile. “Someone could maybe . . . magically unlock it, and save us all the headache?” With a pat on my arm, she added, “I know you like playing Rambo, but I got this one.”
Playing Rambo? I made a face as she stepped past me to place her hands on the lock. I heard Alec’s snicker behind me, and turned to shoot him a glare.
“Rambo,” he repeated with a chuckle. “I think I’ve got a new nickname for you.”
“What was the old nickname?” Lillian questioned Alec as she shot me an amused glance.
My mouth curved into a reluctant grin as Alec answered, “I had several names for him, actually.” He grimaced at the apparent memory before smiling sheepishly at Lillian. “None of them were very nice.”
Lillian glanced between the two of us. “What? You two weren’t always friends?”
Kris snorted loudly as she tried unsuccessfully to contain her laughter. At the same time, Alec shrieked, “You think we’re friends?”
I live in the quiet, middle-of-nowhere Everett, Pennsylvania with my husband and three sons.
I've been writing since I was eleven, after I swiped one of my mom's Dean Koontz books. I still remember the first one I read; it was called Darkfall, and kept me awake most of the night. Anyway, I was totally inspired when I learned that he came from the small rural town I called home (true story, I swear!), and started writing freaky little horror stories because I wanted to be just like him. I gave the stories to my mom to read. I don't think she was as impressed as I was, but she put on an encouraging face...and that was how my writing obsession started.
After years of writing for a hobby and taking creative writing courses, I've published my first novel, Ignited. My dream is for Dean Koontz to no longer be the only bestselling author from my little middle-of-nowhere hometown.
