The last thing Ward de’Ath wants is more trouble. On the run from both the law and the criminal underworld, Ward and Celia flee Brawenal City only to stumble into the mansion of a powerful evil necromancer. And when Ward discovers the man possesses a dangerous grimoire, his duty leaves him no choice. He can’t allow the necromancer to keep the grimoire. But the mansion is filled with monsters–human and undead–and Ward has no way of telling who’s friend or foe. The only person he can trust is Celia who dominates more of his thoughts and feelings everyday. But there are still laws in the way of anything but friendship. She’s still dead and he’s still alive . . . for now.

Mel-Card-headshot-259x300Melanie has always been drawn to story telling. In fact, she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t telling a story in her head or on paper. In grade school, they had journal writing time which she turned into story telling time, weaving tales of magic and adventure that mimicked the fairy tales and myths that she loved to read. It was there, with the help of two very special teachers, that she nurtured this love and started her journey as a writer.

She writes fantasy, paranormal romance, and everything in between, seasoned with a good dash of adventure and mystery. Join her on my tales of magic, adventure, and romance.

I really love the cover! It’s not something that I would normally pick up, but it’s quite eye-catching. i also really like that there is a 19th century vibe to the cover, especially with the dress she’s wearing. I love historical fiction novels and if this is one, then it’s definitely up my alley! I’ll be adding the first book to my Amazon wishlist and hopefully will buy it once my book buying band is O.V.E.R. I’m looking forward to it and this lovely sequel that I’ve heard good things about.

How about you? What are your thoughts on the cover? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂

  1. It’s a pretty cool cover, but that girl is also on the cover of The Wrong Girl, so it’s weird seeing her again!

    • That’s how I feel about the guy who is on the Obsidian series covers. HE IS EVERYWHERE. Not just one but like dozens of different series’ like….weird 😛

      • Maybe they are stock pictures, and lots of publishers/editors use them? I’ve seen quite a few covers that are EXACTLY the same; which i think is totally weird.
