Synopsis

There are some sacrifices we never recover from…

Faye Middleton is at a crossroads in her life. After breaking the last seal and discovering their Rebellion camp was destroyed, she returns to Ethryeal City, determined to avenge the deaths of her mother and friends.

Faye and her team do what they can to keep their Coven intact now that the Priesthood has fallen, but with Darkyn attacks threatening the exposure of their kind, the Primeval Coven is close to being cut off by the United Nations.

Until Meredith, a mysterious Darkyn, appears, claiming she has information that will help Faye bring down the two responsible for the deaths of her mother and friends, and for the fall of her Coven. The only catch is that it requires returning to the very place she lost her mother—the Underground.

Not wanting to risk any more lives, Faye and Weldon agree to go with Meredith on their own. They know Faye will have to face the one machine every Coven is after—the Exanimator. No one who has ever stepped in has ever come out the same, if at all…

But Faye will do anything she can to protect those she loves, even if it costs her life.

Teaser: Excerpt

     I THINK THE WORLD HAS forgotten all color.
     Or maybe I have. Maybe life’s gaping mouth has finally opened up and swallowed me whole, and I’m sitting in a dark shadow as life passes by on fast-forward. As bitterness and regret pour from my heart like anesthesia in my veins. Filling my soul until I’m numb from head to toe with nothing left in my eyes.
     I’m seeing everything in black and white. Seeing everything and nothing in the same.
     I run my bleeding hands under the water in the bathroom, and then splash its coolness onto my face. Stare into the triangular, jagged shard of mirror left hanging on the wall in front of me. The one I broke just minutes ago. Only half of my face shows, severed off at the nose and corner of the left side of my mouth.
      That’s how I feel. Broken. A disfigured remnant of who I once was.
     Because my mother is dead.
     Gone forever, and I don’t know what’s worse— that it was done by the hands of Bael, or that she chose her own death.
     Buckets of lead fill my legs, buckling my knees, and I have to brace the edges of the sink for strength because I know if I fall, there will be no getting back up, and that would make her sacrifice purposeless. I won’t dishonor her that way. I won’t be the weak, mindless girl everyone thinks I am. That everyone expects me to be.
      I’m going to tear through every inch of this earth until I find Clara and Bael, and then I’m going to deliver a death so painful that not even their souls will be safe.
     “Faye?”
     I breathe out, but my lungs still feel like the world’s pressing its weight against them.
     It’s Jaxen knocking on the door, hovering like he’s done since our return to Ethryeal City two weeks ago. Since Seamus assigned us to this house that isn’t ours. A house filled with memories of the family who abandoned the Coven in the wake of the uprising.
     We had returned to a city that matched my soul. A city so broken… so twisted from betrayal and flattened by truths, there was nothing left to do but rebuild over the crippled foundation. So we built our walls stronger. Reinforced our bones with iron. Glued our pieces back together into a durable, more resilient form.
     The city and me, we’re no longer naive.
     Since that fateful night at the manor, Seamus, Mack, and even my father has pulled through in ways I never thought possible. In two weeks, like cool water poured over a bursting flame, they’ve managed to take a rioting city and calm it. Open its doors to those whose homes have been burned to the ground. Whose livelihoods have been stolen. They’ve managed to pull wool over the eyes of the United Nations, promising that the ever-growing threat known as the Darkyns is being handled.
     But most importantly, they’ve managed to bring a city so diverse in its beliefs back together through tragedy.
     I open the door, forcing a smile to my lips, and face Jaxen.
     His calloused hand brushes against my cheek. “Ready?”
     I nod, despite the refusal resting in my belly like a pot of boiling acid just waiting to be tipped over.
     I don’t want to see anyone. Don’t want to pretend everything is okay. But what I want and what’s right isn’t the same thing anymore. Trusting my choices doesn’t come as easy as it did. I feel like I’ve been tipped upside down and all my insides have rushed to my brain, preventing me from thinking clearly.
     We leave the house that overlooks the canal, which is now empty of floating caravans selling merchandise. The once-turquoise waters churn under the pewter sky. The grass and hedges lining the sidewalks are overgrown and littered with balled-up flyers portraying Clara as a traitor to our Coven.
     Elites who have remained true to our cause march in organized groups throughout the city’s streets, guns pressed tightly against their chests. Doors are locked. Windows are boarded up. Footsteps fill the hauntingly quiet streets where magic has scarred the brick walls from the many battles that took place within this sacred city the night the Veil dropped and the Darkyns tried their best to overrun us.
     That was when the beginning of the end commenced.

Everlasting [1]

What if your destiny lay on the other side of death?

The annual Culling ceremony is a day every coming-of-age novice looks forward to within the Primeval Coven. It’s the start to being initiated into the Night Watchmen, humankind’s protectors, and it’s the long-awaited day when novices discover if they’re a Hunter or a Witch.

But this day is not a happy one for Faye Middleton. Not when she’s known her whole life that she’s a Defect and is about to face banishment in front of her fellow novices. She’s forced to attend the Culling with little hope for her future, but what she discovers about herself is far worse than she could’ve imagined. And far more dangerous.

Thrown into training and separated from her friends, Faye must learn to adjust. She struggles to find her place within the Coven, and with Jaxen Gramm, the darkly handsome and extremely unnerving man assigned to watch and protect her. Emotions run high, and when she discovers a deadly secret about him, her struggles deepen. As corruption within the Coven begins to unravel, Faye pieces together her role in saving the future of her people, and within Jaxen’s life...but will the truth save her, or be her undoing?
