New Fiction – NIGHT AWAKENS is out in the world!

NIGHT AWAKENS, Book One of my new Soul Forge urban fantasy series, is now out in the world and available to buy in ebook form. A trade paperback edition should be available in two weeks or less.

Here’s the scoop:

Apocalypse. Resistance. Hope.

Night Sanchez knows how to survive being hunted by relentless magical assassins. After all, she used to be one, a member of The Order of the Blood Moon—until the fateful night she aborted a mission to kill a magically gifted ten-year-old girl. Night took the girl and ran, raising the child as her own, living a new life in the dangerous shadow of the old.

But everything she’s built comes crashing down in a perfect magical storm: The sudden, unexpected appearance of a member of the Order. A deadly threat from the descendants of fallen angels. And the beginning of the end of the world, as the Angel of Death walks the earth.

Night must go to war against them all to protect the ones she loves. If she fails, she’ll lose her daughter, her love, and her life. And the world will burn….

NIGHT AWAKENS and the other Soul Forge series novels are set in Portland, Oregon. Although the setting is different and these books will be urban fantasy, the books are set in the same universe as The Faery Chronicles series. Which means—eventually, but not too eventually—crossover novels and short story and novella guest appearances by characters from the other series.

I’m very excited to be weaving a broad tapestry of stories with characters I love.


You can buy NIGHT AWAKENS right now at AmazonKoboB&N, Smashwords, and iBooks. As mentioned, the trade paperback should be out in about two weeks. Yay!

If you read it, I hope you enjoy it—and if you are so inclined, please give it an honest review. Book Two, NIGHT RISES, arrives in August.
