A Guardians of Ascension Novella
February 14, 2013
A tortured warrior and a peace-loving counselor battle to protect Second Earth against a powerful dark force…
He thwarted connection of any kind…
Fearing that his newly emerged grayle power will kill innocent ascenders, Samuel Daman struggles to keep his distance from beautiful Vela Stillwell. But the breh-hedden has struck and her light floral scent tears at his restraint. When the enemy draws them both into the darkening, a place of secret travel for Third ascenders, will Samuel learn to control his power, or will he destroy what he desires most?
She hid from grief…
Vela Stillwell wanted a new life, away from Militia Headquarters, away from the reminder of all she’d lost when her husband died five years earlier. Seeking a more reclusive occupation, she finishes her last day of work only to have Samuel Daman and the infamous breh-hedden sweep through her life. Though trying to disconnect from her new emerging power and from Samuel, the call of the darkening pulls Vela into an adventure that both terrifies her, yet reveals the truth about her deepest desires. Will she succumb to the breh-hedden, or will her fears prevent her from living life to the fullest?
5 Fun Facts About THE DARKENING:
1. I listened to the soundtrack from the movie, “Inception”, over and over.
2. I kept sniffing a candle that had a fragrance called, “Sweet Peas”, which figures into the storyline.
3. While writing THE DARKENING, I kept picturing the hero with a smoky aura, very sexy.
4. Though THE DARKENING is a novella, I worked in my usual epic themes, like just how much should the individual give up in times of war.
5. And finally, I collected note-cards and other swag with red hearts on them to give away because THE DARKENING releases on Valentine’s Day. Which means, that I’ll be sending out a gift pack of these goodies in addition to an e-copy of THE DARKENING!
