In this second gripping instalment of the Bloodlines trilogy Keira and her friends – Lily, Lucian, Tyler, Jake and Danny – continue to try and understand their elemental powers, and protect themselves from their enemies, whose ultimate goal is to destroy them. This time, the stakes are higher – what seems to be a demon rebellion has broken out in hell and the Earth is plunged into chaos. Their problem is, no one – not even Lucifer himself – knows who the rebel leader is. It seems only Keira, her frightened but determined friends, and a new ally – a demon named Eligos - can find out who this person or thing is, why they are suddenly causing so much bloodshed, pain and upset for everyone, and destroy them.
Bloody awesome battles, amazing feats of magic, and a stronger-than-death passion, make for an intoxicating, unforgettable read in this powerfully imagined fantasy...
In this final instalment of the Bloodlines trilogy, Keira and her friends face their toughest battles yet. Not only with the ones they believe have set out to destroy them, but also with themselves and each other. A shock revelation throws the group into confusion, torn between what each of them think is right and wrong. Keira now has to make a hard choice – does she stay with the people she loves, and fight with them – Or does she leave them, join forces with the person they originally thought was heartless, cold and brutal, but in fact, is doing something she actually agrees with. Something that could benefit and comfort almost every person who has ever lived. Revelations will take you to a place you never could have imagined existed. Heart-wrenching passion, death-defying friendship, treachery and pain, mixed with extreme battles, powerful magic and self-belief, make for an unbelievable climax that will stay with you until the end of time.
Excerpt from Revelations:
Eligos lowered his head, and a moment later his swords appeared. I looked quickly at Keira. I could have sworn that for a brief second I saw a rush of panic cross her eyes.
“Your mind is set then?” he asked her.
“You said you would stay with me, that you would love me forever; I didn’t realize forever came with an expiration date.”
“I gave you the chance to come with me, to stay by my side, but you refused. You let me go alone.”
“Keira, please don’t do this,” Lucian and Tyler begged.
“I’m not doing anything; I’m simply standing here.”
“This is the way it has to be,” Eligos said in a bitterly cold tone, stepping closer toKeira and raising his swords.
“No, no please…please Keira! Eligos, please no,” Lily cried, attempting to run towards them. Danny and Hecate took hold of her and she fought to no avail to get free.
Eligos was only a few feet away from Keira now, and she stepped forward from the car. Her eyes were glowing the brightest of blue. Just when I thought nothing else could surprise me, Keira spoke.
“Eligos, I’ve already torn your heart apart; don’t let your body and soul suffer the same fate,” she taunted.
I heard some of the others gasp in shock. How could she be so cold towards someone she was supposed to have loved? This was not the person we had grown to love…this was not the Keira we all adored.
I have lived in Droylsden, Manchester, all my life. I live with my parents, my younger sister, Cheryl, and her little girl, Faith.
I never knew what I wanted to do with my life until I began writing. This is my dream. I get most of my inspiration from music, I’ll sit listening to it and suddenly I’m no longer in the room. My stories play like videos in my mind, then I go and write them down.
I'm a very dark person, I love anything spooky, supernatural, or unexplainable, and so that’s the genre I want to write in for the rest of my life.
I work as a freelance graphic artist. I help my own publisher from time to time (World Castle Publications), I'm down as an available illustrator for Crooked Cat Publishing, and have recently been working with Empire Voices, creating the paperback and audio covers for their "Classics" line. I also create promo art and even book trailers. You can find out more about my art by clicking here.
Scary films are a true love of mine, although I find it very hard to find one these days that actually frightens me. My favourite story of all time is Bram Stoker's, Dracula. The movie is equally as amazing. I also love, The Crow, Constantine and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
