Hyacinth always assumed dying would simplify her life. But when her new boss, Archangel Michael, sends her on her first official mission—to retrieve a powerful rock from a collector in Germany—things go downhill fast. For one thing, the Dead keep popping up, expecting her to guide them to the Afterlife. For another, her part-demon nephew Geordi's powers are starting to leak out, at age seven. What if Michael finds out about him? Worse, what if Satan does? Then there's her love life-after-death. Rooming with a dead French cop no one else can see is complicated enough. But when Jason, Geordi's lying Dioguardi Demon cousin, resurrects himself—so to speak—all Hell breaks loose. Literally. Can Hyacinth get Michael's rock back before Satan steals its powers and breaks free of his prison? Or will her single-minded pursuit put those she loves—and the rest of the world—in the path of Satan's fury?

About the author

Kerry was born in British Columbia, Canada, and has since lived all over the West Coast of North America, including California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska--everywhere except Mexico! She's a "computer industry" brat, not a military one, but moving so frequently meant she spent a lot of time reading, and later writing, (hopefully!) great books. She has a degree in Comparative Literature (French and Middle English) from U.C. Berkeley, and a Master's in Teaching English and Mathematics from the University of Portland. She currently lives in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest with her husband, two "kids" in mid-to-late adolescence, assorted cats and dogs, and more hot pepper plants than anyone could reasonably consume.

Borderland is the story of a young assistant bank manager, Logan Massey. She discovers hundreds of thousands of dollars missing from several elderly customers' accounts while meeting with the daughter of one of the customers, Travis Morton, who has recently died. The missing money can be traced to an unscrupulous lawyer with an expensive cocaine habit, Jake Turner. After he is confronted with the evidence that will ruin his career and send him to prison, Jake commits suicide while in a drug-induced state. He crosses over into Borderland, which is the residence of the afterlife, and blames Logan Massey for his demise and the circumstances that follow. Desiring revenge, he comes back to earth determined to force her to kill herself and join him in the bowels of Hell. In the meantime, Travis Morton arrives in the afterlife and becomes an inhabitant of the Light, the higher elevation in Borderland. His assignment is to be a spirit savior, helping to prevent wicked souls like Jake Turner from wreaking havoc and placing innocent lives in danger. Along the way, others cross Jake's path and some die in his evil quest for reprisal. Logan escapes her self-induced guilt over his death by taking a trip to her deceased parents' cabin on the lake. She meets some very nice local people, including a kind, handsome county veterinarian named Tom Doherty, who helps her and faces danger in the process. The ultimate battle for Logan's soul brings earthly and spiritual forces together in the peaceful isolated confines of Brown County State Park. When the struggle is over, who will win, good or evil? And, what will be the final destination and judgment for Jake Turner's soul?

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER (December 2017)

A stunning new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts—Year One is an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magick, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives...

It began on New Year’s Eve.

The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.

Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magick rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most.

As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.

In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.

The end has come. The beginning comes next.
