*** This is a continuation of Connor and Sha’s story. Book 1, Breaking the Nexus, should be read first.***
As two Realms collide, the world descends into chaos.
From the moment Sha Phoenix dropped into the middle of Detective Connor Flynn’s murder scene, he had known his life would never be the same. Following her claim to be a Sorceri from the Mythrian Realm, he had received a crash course in the impossible as they had struggled to stop a madman. Unfortunately, despite their efforts to stop the Nexus, a magical barrier separating the Mythrian and Human Realms, fractured. Magic and myth are spilling over into the Human Realm, plunging everything into turmoil.
Is their love strong enough to survive the flames of the phoenix?
When Sha vanished through a portal in the middle of battle, Connor did not hesitate to follow the woman he had claimed as his. Now in the Mythrian Realm, they join forces with the Sentinels, the guardians of the Realms, to protect the world they love. Will they be able to contain the evil taking control? Or will they perish in the flames of war?
Sha was yanked back into the void and Connor followed. They end up back in Mythrian. Where Aries and Saia have finally realized they were meant to be together. Aries isn’t to happy that Connor followed Sha back. Back on earth Connor’s partner Ian is trying to fight off the creatures that Maestro sent to wreck havoc on them. Connor’s sister Brenna saves him from death and finds her a safe place all the while trying to fight his attraction to her. Brenna tries to get him to stop fighting it. Meanwhile back on Mythrian all hell is breaking loose and it is up to Sha to find a way to end Maestro’s terror.
This is the second book in the series and it picks right back up where the first one left all. I love Connor, instead of fighting his attraction to Sha he just jumps in after her. Even being confused about all that is going on he is still his alpha male self. Never missing a beat with trying to take care of Sha. Then you have Alec the smart mouthed supposedly human teen, that is much more then he seems. I am curious to see what happens between Ian and Brenna. You can feel the attraction between them.
This book ends in a cliffhanger and I am looking forward to reading to what happens next. So many things I want to see where it goes. Wonderful series for lovers of sci-fi/ romance.
The Mythrian Series
Lindsay Avalon is a wife, owner of a devious mini Schnauzer, programmer, and now an author. An avid reader, her amazing husband never seems to mind the multitude of books scattered around the house. However, after listening to the words “I have nothing to read” one too many times, he suggested Lindsay try her hand at writing her own books.
Since she’d never liked writing in school, she balked at the idea until her sister pestered her to participate in NaNoWriMo. It was then Lindsay realized that it was never writing she hated; it was writing boring essays. Creating worlds of magic, mystery, adventure, and romance became her true calling. In 2012, she embarked on the journey to become a self-published author and to bring her crazy ideas to life.
In 2013, Lindsay decided to ask a fellow author about her publishing company, Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly. It was a spur of the moment, impulsive decision, and one which Lindsay is eternally grateful she made. Though self-publishing was exhilarating, being a part of her amazing publishing family gives her a bit of structure in her chaotic existence.
When she’s not writing or spending time with her husband, she’s hiding out from devious bears seeking to thwart her writing efforts, pestering her amazing friends and personal assistant, creating works of art in resin, and a multitude of other things that capture her attention at the moment. You can find Lindsay online spreading insanity across Facebook and interacting with her many lovelies. She loves hearing from her readers and fellow writers!
