My stop includes an excerpt from book two in the series, The Secret of the Keepers. But first, take a look at Light of Asteria and The Secret of the Keepers.
If Nora Johnson hadn't been on campus that day, she would have never known her true destiny. Helping her friends move into the dorm that she wanted to call home, Nora accidentally collides with mysterious stranger, Gavin Frey. His very first touch sends flames through her heart. The world seems different-something within her has changed.
She tries to resume her mundane life, but now she's consumed with the one whose very presence ignited her soul, the one with eyes of emerald. Nora soon learns that an energy buried deep within has been unleashed. She now wields unimaginable power and has become Gavin's source, his strength.
Her newfound joy is shaken when she discovers that Gavin is not who he appears to be, and she has been thrust in the middle of a war of mythical proportions. Negativity has allowed all things evil to flourish, the earth is under siege. The fate of creation hinges on the power within her heart. Will she be strong enough to survive?
A gripping tale of unbounded love and ancient power, "The Light of Asteria " will take you on an epic adventure filled with war, treachery, and demons, as well as unimaginable delights.~From GoodReads
The Kailmeyra Chronicles: Book Two--
Life for Nora couldn't be better; she has married the man of her dreams and loves living in the pristine land of Kailmeyra.
That is, until the darkness threatens her perfect world.
Now war is upon the land. She and Gavin must strengthen their clan and prepare to fight. But the enemy has an ally—one that not only wields power, but holds knowledge of the ancients' secrets. Secrets that could destroy creation itself.
As the darkness grows, doubt seeps in ... protectiveness hinders progress ... and the unthinkable comes to pass.
Bewildered and alone, Nora shoulders the responsibility of leading an entire race to war. As she struggles with decisions that seem impossible to make, she is haunted by one choice.
"No one has ever doubted that you would die for those you love. The question then becomes ... would you live?" ~From GoodReads
“Go back!” A craggy voice shouted in the night.
White noise screeched in victory as soon as Ester cried out. Gavin jerked me to him, we stood back-to-back, his determination coursed through my veins. Clouds rolled in, smothering the moonlight.
“You don’t understand!” Ester’s frail voice echoed in despair. “They know you will weaken, they have taken your clan. You must go back.” My heart jolted. Elias and Elaine should be here … Rena … Tark …Where was the guard? Where was the battle?
The darkness grew closer. The stench of the Dokkalfar smothered the hopeful scent of pine. Hundreds of almond eyes glimmered in the night; the ash covered ground deafened their feet. My heart made its way to my throat as adrenaline rushed through my veins.
“It is a trick,” Gavin growled, “focus, love, focus.”
The front line crept closer, and all streams of thought strained on Gavin’s every move. I knew how to protect; Gavin knew how to fight. I crouched as the front line charged. My senses heightened; every nerve became alive. I could feel the power coursing through me, a blue haze encircled us. The closest Dokkalfar dropped where they stood, dying before they hit the ground. Their bodies made a perimeter the others dared not cross. I curled my lips in a hard grin.
“Follow my lead.” Gavin softly said in the ancient language.
Can you reach the others?
“They do not answer. We’re on our own.”
