Today is my book birthday! Forest of Bones is out now available for everyone to read and enjoy. I’m very excited about this. The book took me over two years to write with crafting and all the drafts I went through not to mention the edits.
If you want a slightly different take on vampires and love magic and dark fantasy then go and check it out. Let me know what you think.
Kaya is the only one of her kind: a hybrid vampire and magician. A demon from days past is trying to free its banished brethren from the dark realms by an ancient sun god. Kaya is the key to freeing them.
Valik, her vampire protector, must help her contain the demon. Stavros, the mortal king, will kill any vampire he comes across because they caused the death of his wife and son. Begrudgingly, he takes Kaya as his fiancé. To stop a war, Stavros must join forces with the very thing he hates and keep the demon at bay.
Old ghosts are stirred up. Magic is growing wild. Mysteries from ages past resurface revealing more questions about Kaya’s heritage and how she’s entwined with the demon. Can she reconcile the past?
Or will the demon claim everything she holds dear, including her soul?
Kaya stretched out her senses to the world around her. She nearly lost her balance as a strong source of magic enveloped her. The seam of power running through the Bone Forest grated along her spirit like coarse sand. It made her cringe and want to spread her wings and fly back toward the mountains. The magic in the mountains was lighter, almost pure, where this place was murky like a bloody river. In her mind’s eye, she saw a throbbing wound in the thread of power weaving through the forest. This seam was diseased. Pulses of darkness pushed along the vein,widening it to release more sickness into the environment.
“Kaya, did you hear what I said?”
She pulled away from the magical source and focused back on her friend. “Sorry. The magic here is…corrupt.”
“Of course, it is. This place is cursed. Vyrkola don’t come near here for a reason. Or the varaz for that matter. The Bone Forest became uninhabitable after your ancestor—” A breeze clattered the leaves together. Kaya caught the scent of blood from the distant battles that waged on.
“Hush.” The wind also brought something else with it: a trace of horses and other men.
“Why are we being quiet?” Adran whispered.
“Let them deal with it. You need to come back to the palace.”
Kaya jumped from the tree. Her form shrank. Feathers sprouted where skin and clothes had been. The tip of her tail skimmed the top of Adran’s head. Even in the tiny body of the grackle, the magic in the area impacted her. The draft fluffed her feathers as she rose above the trees to get a bird’s eye view of the land below. A band of ten sped toward the scouting party. An urgent desire to warn the men below gripped her. She couldn’t shake it. It didn’t make any rational sense, but something told her she had to try. Kaya dove through the trees and circled the campfire. The fire singed her feet. She pulled them closer to her body as she flew and ignored the brief pain. She darted toward the men to get their attention. They waved their arms and swatted at her. No matter how hard she tried, they only thought her an annoying bird. Frustrated, Kaya pushed back up to Adran and morphed back to human form.
“Let’s go. You tried to warn them. Besides, I know you’re hungry. The dark circles under your eyes are a dead giveaway.”
