About Me

I am OBSESSED with Walt Disney World. (It’s my happy place.)

I read Marvel Comics and like to cosplay when I go to ComicCons.

I like to play all sorts of tabletop board games.

I love all the Star Wars movies, even the prequels. (Don’t Judge…lol)

And I am a huge NASCAR fanatic. (Go Team Lowes #48!)

ABOUT THE BOOK

Back in Lakewood Avikar finally learns the truth about his father-and the lies he’s been told since birth. Since King Corban doesn’t believe his tale about the shapeshifters, it falls to Avikar to find a way to route out the beasts from the lands and stop them once and for all.

Lucino has left Jeslyn in Mirth to go fight the Kuuni. When he arrives on the black shores, ready to slaughter them all, he finds that killing is no longer as easy as before. His human side is becoming stronger, and the repercussions of his love for Jeslyn will put his race and every plan he’s ever made at risk.
