It’s here, it’s here, it’s HERE! Finally, friends, I am happy to announce that my newest book is out in the world!

The last thing that Praxis Fellows expected was to ever return to her family’s home, but when Pon Lanali seizes control of Durland and danger looms behind every corner, there is no other choice. While Yandosia may not be Praxis’s favorite place, only the Fellows can provide a safe haven for her and Kaedrich Mannly.

Except that things at home aren’t quite what Praxis planned on. With the fate of the family company hanging in the balance, rivalries and betrayals become common ground—and now something darker is lurking, unburied from the deepest depths of the mine. How long can Praxis and Kaedrich resist being drawn into the quagmire of family politics? And just how much damage is Lanali doing to Kaedrich’s own home up north while the two of them are stuck under the ice?

(As usual, paperbacks might take slightly longer to show up in stores, but the files have all been approved, so it’s just a matter of waiting for the computer systems to catch up.)


Oh man, where do I even start, talking about this book? This book has been in the works for so long, I can’t believe it’s really done. This is the Beacons book I was working on when the election of 2016 hit, and this is the Beacons book I was working on when one of my family members had a stroke, and this is the Beacons book I was working on while I wrote Jane Maxwell, and this the Beacons book I was working on when my superhero book launched me to a new level as an author, and this is the Beacons book I was working on when I started to reclaim my life for myself, and this is the Beacons book I was working on when another relative passed away. My world, the world, does not look the same as it did when I started writing it. I am not the same person that I was when I started writing it. As a result, this was the single hardest thing I’ve ever written, and I appreciate your patience, waiting for me to finish. There were times I really did not think I would ever finish.

But I did, and in the end this is one of my favorite books of the series. Of course I think I say that every time a book is released, but oh well. I hope you’ll find it worth the wait. I hope you’ll love it as much I finally do. Buy it up, tell your friends, leave a review! And then watch this space, because the next chapters of our journey together are only getting more exciting…
