Synopsis


In the horror show of Gods and Monsters, Eden Ryel was the star. Conceived of her mother, a Merovingian--a direct descendant of Christ--and her father, the half-human son of a fallen angel, her very existence had prompted The Great War. Prophesied to be the Keeper of the Balance, Eden struggles to realize her purpose.

Levi, the overconfident and charming half-human son of Lucifer takes nothing seriously. Not even when he finally meets the young woman who is destined to end his existence. A common bond is formed under the pressures they face from both sides, but their respective religious texts predict opposite outcomes. Either way, they must choose: war, death, or love.

#SweetPotatoFries

In the old world shadows of Providence, Rhode Island, Nina Grey finds herself the center of a war between Hell and Earth.


Struggling with her father's death, Nina meets Jared Ryel, presumably by chance. However it soon becomes clear that he knows more about her than even close friends. When her father's former associates begin following her in the dark, Nina learns that her father was not the man she thought he was, but a thief who stole from demons. In searching for the truth behind her father's death, she stumbles upon something she never expected, and something Hell wants, that only she holds the key for. Jared risks everything to keep the women he was born to save, by sharing the secret he was sworn to protect.
Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and iBooks.



Also available in Audio Book (Narrated by Carly Robins) 

The audio book is amazing!!!! Carly Robins is fantastic!!! 
She has the best voice and her inflection as she reads is both entertaining and enjoyable. Her voice reminds me of Kristen Bell from Frozen.
Dreaming of the dead might mean a restless night for anyone, but for Nina Grey it was a warning.


Still healing from her last run-in with Hell, Nina struggles with not only her life as a Brown University student, but also as an intern at Titan Shipping, her father's company. Recurring nightmares about her father's violent death have become a nightly event, but being overwhelmed with guilt from Ryan's unexpected departure to the Armed Forces, and heart ache over Claire being across the ocean to protect him, Nina believes her sleepless nights are the least of her problems—but she's wrong.
Worried about Nina's declining health, Jared must steal back Shax's book for answers. Fighting new enemies, and with the help of new friends, Jared's worst fear comes to fruition. Desperate, he is faced with a choice: Fight Hell alone, or start a war with Heaven.

Available on AmazonBarnes & Noble and iBooks.

Once again Carly Robins lends her amazing voice as the narrator!! I've listened to many audio books and she is my favorite. I hope the third book in this trilogy also has an audio format soon and that she narrates it as well. Give it a listen and you'll see what I mean. #Brilliance


Audio Book (Narrated by Carly Robins)

Faced with the impossible task of protecting his new wife and unborn child against the throes of Hell, Jared Ryel is allowed no mistakes. Pressured to return the Naissance de Demoniac to Jerusalem, he revisits St. Ann's to learn the answers were in front of him all along.
