Book Blurb
When a choice is made, it will forever alter the course of our destiny. It cannot be undone, for fate is a river changing direction and carving away the bed of our hearts like everlasting fractures.

A difficult past has left Silver broken, but she is learning to trust again through Logan Cross, a Chitah who has convinced her that a dangerous man can change. Their conviction for each other will be put to the ultimate test when an old nemesis reappears and flips her world upside down. Will Logan be able to tame the animal within, or will he succumb to his impulsive nature?

The ongoing investigation into Breed experiments unveils a shocking secret about Silver’s past. Standing at a fork in the road, Silver is forced to make a decision. Each comes with consequence, and there is no turning back. 

This book is the best in the series thus far.  It has adventure, drama, conflict, hot alpha males, and some much needed angst.  It has the kind of angst that makes your stomach hurt as the tension mounts. Everything about this book is about depth - deepening relationships, deepening sacrifice, deepening our connection to the characters.  But I like this kind of angst, it makes you feel emotion. Silver faces a heartbreaking dilemma and as a reader, I followed numbly, and yet terrifyingly along.   

All of our favorite characters are back and they all have an opportunity to shine. As the overarching story arc continues to develop, we see the evolution of our side characters - Justus, Simon, Adam, Sunny, and Logan.  Clearly, there is more left to be said about our friends, but each gets their due in this story.  

If you are already a Mageri fan, this book will thrill you.  It is an excellent addition to the series.  If you haven't started the series, what are you waiting for .... but start with Stering.  This isn't a book you can immediately immerse yourself in, but it is worth the effort. 

Down in Texas, there's a woman who drinks copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to her laptop. Yeah, I know. I've got a drinking problem. Hi, I'm Danni.

When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm listening to obscure music, watching movies, reading, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the internet. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).

Some people count sheep when they have insomnia. Since I was little, I used to make up stories in my head in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I'd get so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down more and more, creating short stories which evolved into poetry.

Lots and lots of poetry. It's almost embarrassing that I have an entire box loaded with spiral notebooks filled with furious, heartfelt, and blushing words. Apparently, I had a lot to say.

Another one of my hobbies is digital art. I designed all my book covers. 

I am finally doing what I have always wanted to: giving my characters a pulse through publishing. I write adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels. I let the story tell itself, and color outside the lines. I am not a YA author, but I think it’s pretty great that there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal. These are the future readers!

The work that goes behind self publishing is hard work, I won't lie. On top of my regular day job: I write, edit, format, create cover art, and market.
But it's what I love to do, and someday, I'm going to be doing this full time.

    1. This is double awesome! A great giveaway from my favorite author (and believe me, I'm not just saying that!), plus, in the process, I found a super cool new blog to follow!! :-)

  2. I'm in the middle of reading it right now and you're right...I'm kind of numb from some of the things that have happened and trying to read as fast as I can to find out what the ultimate outcome is going to be! Oh and can I say....I'm loving Christian!
