Once Skyler’s thrilling journey to defend Fanticlear (and herself) begins, readers will be glued to the page and remain eager for the next installment.” — Kirkus Reviews

    Fanticlear is a wondrous island inhabited by goddesses, fairies, talking dragons, and vampires.

    Five centuries ago, a war raged between an ancient race of brutal, and bloodthirsty Fiante (fierce) Vampires and a new race of Kihnalta (compassionate) Vampires.

    The new prevailed, yet rumors persist that a remnant band of Fiante’s still exists, and are out for revenge… and the kingdom.

    A compulsively readable fantasy adventure! I devoured it. The writing is powerful and the plot so inventive. The characters (especially Skyler herself) are well-drawn and multidimensional. Really incredible, detailed world-building. Loved it and would highly recommend!
