Featuring fantasy romance Shattered by Cassie Swindon
Darkness is gnawing at my soul. The shadows swallow me a little more each day. But someone needs to destroy Elana Elidi. And I may be the only one who can. There’s a spell to stop her from destroying the remaining Ordulls. But it requires a sacrifice from my true love. The problem is—who does my heart belong to—Jadox or Isaac?

Excerpt from Shattered
The silent moon loomed over us as a steady reminder of Gemm’s last prophecy. Her words rang in my head again and again.
“On the full Teal Moon, one man will lay down his life for love.”
I gulped and squeezed my eyes shut, praying to the goddess above that she was wrong. I only had two weeks left to find a way to prevent that fate. It wasn’t fair. I had worked too hard to keep them both alive, and we had all sacrificed so much. Maybe if I had never picked either of them, then neither man would be doomed to this fate.
Tears pooled behind my eyes. “You won’t win,” I whispered up at the moon, but she only smiled down in return.
Following Chocolate’s tug, I lumbered through the tall grass toward the abandoned skyscrapers of Vayu. Trying to claw myself out of the fog, I contemplated Gemm’s other words for the hundredth time.
One of them became cursed and was trudging toward death.
I shook my head in frustration and shot a random burst of fire at one of the buildings. “No! I won’t let anyone die. I won’t.” Flames shot through a window, and glass shattered, cascading over the sidewalk.
Chocolate barked and tugged hard, her leash slipping from my hand as she darted into one of the shadowy buildings.
“Chocolate! Hey. Come back!” I sprinted over the fallen glass through the quiet streets. Too quiet.
When I reached the threshold of a door, a strange feeling warped my tattoos. I rolled the hem of my skirt down and stared at the gray tattoo on my hip, which now resembled a toxic mist. Shit.
