For the past six years, Quinn has looked forward to the day when she would finally have her revenge against the vampire who slaughtered her family. What she never expected is for that vampire to walk into Clint’s bar and unleash terror and death on her small desert town. With more people dying every day, Quinn realizes she must delve deeper into her power than she’s ever wanted or dared to before if she's going to save her loved ones. 

   As new enemies and allies arise and good friends are lost, Julian will do whatever it takes to keep Quinn from the clutches of the vampire who stalks and torments her. Even if it means becoming the vampire he once was and swore he’d never be again.

Book 1, Captured.   

Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. Aria’s world is turned upside down when a vampire named Braith steps forward to claim her. He delays her execution, but Aria knows it’s only a matter of time before he drains her, and destroys her. Aria is determined to hate the prince, but his strange kindness and surprising gentleness astonish her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known and a love she never dreamed of finding.

Book 2, Renegade.

Though she is free of the palace, rescued from her position as a blood slave, Aria is haunted by the memories of Braith, the prince that betrayed her and shattered her heart. Every day is a struggle to get through, and the only solace she can find is with Max, her best friend, and fellow captive. Aria slowly begins to salvage the broken parts of her wounded spirit by throwing herself into the wonder of the woods she had so greatly missed. Her world is thrown into a tailspin again though when a marauding group of vampires destroy the caves she had found temporary shelter in. Scattered about the forest, seeking to stay hidden and find her family, Aria is stunned when Braith, the monster that savaged her heart, reappears. 

Book 3, Refugee.

Whispers, rumors, and horror stories abound about The Barrens and the strange creatures that lurk within them. Determined to find the remaining vampires that stood against his father in the war, Braith knows that it’s dangerous to enter the inhospitable land, but that they must if they are to have a chance at gaining allies to help overthrow the king.

Aria is fearful of entering into the land she’s heard nothing but cautionary tales about, but she’s determined to help Braith locate the vampires that may help them with their cause. She is fascinated and amazed by the world they uncover within. However, the more immersed they become in a world, the more she realizes that it won’t be the war or even the king that will eventually tear her and Braith apart. It will be her.  

Book 4, Salvation.

Imprisoned by Caleb and at the mercy of the king, Aria is determined not to let them break her.

Tormented by the loss of Aria, Braith is forced to choose between his need to rescue her, and the impending rebel war he’s been chosen to lead. Fighting against the darkness which threatens to drag him into its tempting depths, Braith struggles not to become the one thing he hates the most, his father.      

Faced with their separate challenges, Aria and Braith must come to terms with who they are, what they want, and the likelihood that they can never be together as the inevitable war looms on the horizon. A war that all of them will fight but not all of them will survive. 

Book 5, Redemption.

A year has passed since the war against Jack’s father. Having left the palace behind to ensure that the outer towns are obeying the new laws, Jack struggles to come to terms with the grief that drove him from the palace in the first place. That is until he encounters Hannah. 

Growing up in the small town of Chippman, Hannah had long ago accepted the fact that she would never leave. When Jack walks into her life, she quickly realizes that not everything is what she’d believed it to be. Knowing that Jack will reject her if he learns the truth about her, Hannah struggles to fight her growing attraction to him. For though the town of Chippman seems normal, its residents harbor secrets that they’ve taken great pains to keep hidden.
