To CELEBRATE the cover reveal and pre order of The Atonement of Lucas we are giving away the SIGNED paperbacks of the series that started it all!
THE ONLY PERSON I’VE EVER LOVED was taken from me during the first reaping several months ago. I don’t know how, or why, but something changed inside me, turning me into something I never knew existed. Sasha came into my life and saved me, teaching me to use the powers I’d known so little about. But saving me wasn’t her end goal. She handed me over to the Fallen like I meant nothing to her, and now, revenge is all I see. Destroying those who screwed me fills my every thought but there’s one thing standing in my way. He came along and became the one Fallen I don’t think I can live without.
TROUBLE SHOULD HAVE BEEN HER NAME. When I found her planting a bomb on the compound, I threw her in a cell, leaving her the option to cooperate or starve. I should kill her and put an end to the suffering she’s determined impose on all of us, but there’s just something about her that keeps holding me back. The friction between us is explosive. I can’t resist her when she gets that look in her eye, and she damn well knows it.
I loved him at fifteen. I thought we’d stand the test of time. He was my forever but maybe I fell too fast or loved him too much. Maybe I came on too strong or maybe I did something wrong. He still left. Turned his back on me without a word. I never thought I’d see him again and to be honest, I didn’t want to. I began to hate him even though he would never know it. But then, I did see him again and with him came the secrets that would forever change all of our lives.
She was only a recurring dream in my foggy unconscious. A voice. A face. We weren’t supposed to dream. We weren’t supposed to remember. They said it was impossible and the before would never come into the now. None of the others remember, at least not that I know of. What I do know is that she was my everything, my every waking breath. Now that I’ve found her I will not be losing her a second time. She will be mine again, no matter what the cost.
The pain is unbearable. The voices are worse. I know it’s affecting her, I can see it in her eyes every time I look at her. We’ve been on this journey for weeks with no relief in sight. We haven’t had a real conversation since before that first strike of lightning, and I constantly miss what we could have become. There’s only one thing I can do to make it all go away. To ensure that I can once again be the man that she needs, the man that she loves. I have to fall.
The apocalypse wasn’t what I thought it would be. The earth hasn’t turned to lava, and ungodly creatures haven’t risen from the depths of hell. The angels are fighting the Fallen, and more and more humans are slain every day. Both sides are multiplying, and there’s only one side we can choose to be on. The Fallen are evil, but more and more I’m realizing so are the angels. No one can be trusted, and no one is safe.
I thought I could continue to ignore the… talents my friends and the love of my life possess. I couldn’t. It all became too much when we moved to the compound and they were able to use them freely. I wasn’t able to handle it and now I’m on my own. The gate to Hell has been opened and demons have invaded the earth. Luckily, the portal to the underworld is small and considering the population, few have stepped foot on earth’s soil. The demons are after what I have but I can’t let them take him. He’s all I have left.
Ryan is gone. She left me. Said it was too much. She couldn’t handle all of the strange things or the nightly battles against the demons. She needed out and I let her go. Or so she thinks. I sent my best man to keep an eye on her and keep her safe. She holds the very thing I love most and I won’t let the demons have them. I would fight the Devil himself to keep her in my arms and I am determined to win.
