 Sometimes Darkness is the Only Road to the Light.

Sophie Saterlee has made it her mission to get her life together. Leaving behind an abusive relationship, she's bartending her way through a psychology degree. Ultimate goal? A new, stronger sense of identity. But when a terrifying recurring nightmare begins to poison her waking hours and threaten all her progress, once again she’s close to losing everything.

An invitation to a tea leaf reading party sounds like exactly the kind of distraction she needs, but an innocent girls' night out turns into a journey through a complex and treacherous world of magic. To survive it, Sophie must forge ahead in spite of her fears, making uncomfortable alliances with strangers from this dark new reality—the arrogant Donovan, the mysterious Caine. One of them is tied to her past, and the other fills her present. Either man might hold the key to her uncertain future, but there's more going on in her little corner of the world than Sophie realizes, and the truth will change everything.

About the author

S.J. CAIRNS is a Southern Canadian, born and raised in St. Catharines, Ontario, where she lives with her bug-killing, video game-playing husband of 17 years, her spunky mother-in-law, and their three snorting pugs.

During days off from true chaos working as a Women’s Advocate at a busy downtown women’s shelter, you can find S.J. in her writerly lair, dipped in all things creepy, plotting against her lifetime nemesis, those deadly evil-doers—balloons.

S.J. hopes to one day add her own works of fiction to her overly-crammed shelves as she focuses on her own series of novels, The Soul Seer Chronicles. Catch up with S.J. and her writing on Facebook or on her website at www.sjcairns.com.

New York Times Bestseller: A young girl’s visions offer the last hope in a postapocalyptic wasteland in this “grand and disturbing adventure” (Dean Koontz).

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick
 
Swan is a nine-year-old Idaho girl following her struggling mother from one trailer park to the next when she receives visions of doom—something far wider than the narrow scope of her own beleaguered life. In a blinding flash, nuclear bombs annihilate civilization, leaving only a few buried survivors to crawl onto a scorched landscape that was once America.
 
In Manhattan, a homeless woman stumbles from the sewers, guided by the prophecies of a mysterious amulet, and pursued by something wicked; on Idaho’s Blue Dome Mountain, an orphaned boy falls under the influence of depraved survivalists and discovers the value of a killer instinct; and amid the devastating dust storms on the Great Plains of Nebraska, Swan forms a heart-and-soul bond with an unlikely new companion. Soon they will cross paths. But only Swan knows that they must endure more than just a trek across an irradiated country of mutated animals, starvation, madmen, and wasteland warriors.
 
Swan’s visions tell of a coming malevolent force. It’s a shape-shifting embodiment of the apocalypse, and of all that is evil and despairing. And it’s hell-bent on destroying the last hope of goodness and purity in the world. Swan is that hope. Now, she must fight not only for her own survival, but for that of all mankind.
 
A winner of the Bram Stoker Award and a finalist for the World Fantasy Award, Swan Song has become a modern classic, called “a chilling vision that keeps you turning pages to the shocking end” by John Saul and “a long, satisfying look at hell and salvation” by Publishers Weekly.
