I have a  special power, but no one would call it a gift. A curse, for sure. I don't know how I ended it up with this ... this thing, but I have it. It's the ability to know who will die. A single whiff as they walk by, and I know the person is marked for death. And there is nothing I can do to stop it.

I hate this ability, this power, and everyone who knows I have it hates me. Well, only one person knows. My father. And he hates me for it. He hates me for knowledge I don't want or know how to stop.

I've retreated into myself, knowing I can tell no one. But then, she walked into my life. And I know immediately that she's different. She wears a scent, but not that of death. A different scent, an otherworldly one. And I know in that moment that I will stop at nothing to understand why.


Scented is a powerful tale about life, 
death and love, woven through a tapestry of characters with unique abilities. If you enjoy stirring, heart-wrenching tales with love at their center, you'll adore Scented.

Don’t miss the Blood of Eden trilogy by the New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Fey and The Talon Saga! This darkly thrilling series, set in a destroyed, near-future world, will captivate fans of the Divergent, Hunger Games and Maze Runner series. Includes the prequel novella Dawn of Eden and complete novels The Immortal Rules, The Eternity Cure, and The Forever Song.


WHAT IF HAVING A CHANCE TO SAVE HUMANITY MEANT BECOMING WHAT YOU HATE AND FEAR MOST?


In the near future, the human population has been decimated by a virus—and vampires have come out of the darkness to control the remaining "blood cattle" they need to survive. In this destroyed world, Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten. Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of the vampires who have no mercy for humankind. Until the night Allie herself dies…and becomes one of the monsters.


Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend—Eden, a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. But hiding her identity is nearly impossible as she comes to know and admire her companions…and starts to fall for a human. Soon Allie will have to decide what—and who—is worth dying for…again.

"The prospect of being the human parts drawer society reaches into to cure its neediest patients would drive anyone mad." - Kelsey Reed, Life First 

Strong-willed Kelsey Reed must escape tonight or tomorrow her government will take her kidney and give it to someone else. 

She’ll need the help of her true love, Luke, to make this dangerous escape. This dystopian future Kelsey lives in was forged by survivors of pandemics that wiped out 80 percent of the world's population. Here, life is valued above all else. The mentally ill are sterilized, abortions are illegal and those who refuse to donate an organ when told are sentenced to death. 

Determined not to give up her kidney or die, Kelsey and Luke enlists the help of a dodgy doctor to escape. The trio must disable the tracking chip in Kelsey's arm for her to flee undetected. If they fail, Kelsey could be stripped of Luke, her kidney and everything else she holds dear. 

This page-turning thriller with a touch of romance, is the first in the Life First dystopian book series. The thrills and romance continue in our dystopian future in Second Life (book 2 of the series) and Third Life: Taken (book 3 of the series).
