Now sixteen and growing desperate for a stable life, Alyssa finds herself puzzled by her newest keeper, twenty-five year old Jessica Sona. A feisty woman who does not accept no for an answer, Jessica’s insistence on safety, family, and unconditional love begin to break down Alyssa’s walls and bring her hope, a dangerous emotion.

About the author

Fixing broken computers, wrangling a very spirited little toddler, and creating new fantasy worlds are all parts of the average day for Kristi Strong. While she has called Virginia her home for two decades, her head has rested in two countries, three states, and far too many houses to count. She was more than happy to give up her nomadic lifestyle and settle down with her husband, daughter, cat and chinchilla.

Kristi currently has three published books in the fantasy genre. These books can be read as stand-alone novels, but the experience is enhanced if you read them in order.

SPECIAL EXCERPT:

Deep within the stones of Steinbrekka, the Gormellyn stirred. His beady eyes snapped open and he yawned, his long, black muzzle opening wide and blood-red tongue flicking out to taste the air. His back arched in a feline stretch as he rose on all four limbs, muscles stiffened after the long repose. A purr of contentment turned into a low grown as he lifted his paws to the side of his den and extended his claws, the razor-sharp talons screeching as they scraped thin lines in the hard stone.

The lair was not large, just big enough for a medium-sized dog or large cat. This was the den where the Gormellyn slept in eternal peace, only awoken during times of great need. The last time his long slumber had been disturbed was when the foolish High Prince Mateo had answered the summoning of Steinbrekka, the call to power that was released for Lord Rowan to claim twenty-three long years ago.

Foolish, High Prince. Foolish, King Verikhan. The creature stretched once again, ancient bones cracking and shifting until he was able to move in a sinewy, snake-like smoothness once again. He could still taste the blood of the High Prince on his tongue, and the fear and rebellion of Verikhan lingered in his finely tuned nostrils. For this immortal being, the events of the past decades were as clear as if they had just occurred, and he momentarily lost himself in the deep betrayal of the past king.

Then, his head turned from side to side as his tongue once again darted into the air, seeking that which pulled him from his two-decade-long slumber. His eyes narrowed down to nearly invisible slits and he hissed, steam rising into the frigid air of the cave.

Foolish, foolish, two-faced human. You should have never come to this realm. Now you shall suffer.
