She may have spent years in an asylum, but that didn’t make her crazy–just fearless.
Dropped in Moscow with her friends on an impossible mission against underworld forces, Tara is
left to her feelings of overwhelming inadequacy. Her boyfriend is a healer, her best friend is “the
Guardian,” and everyone else is a powerhouse of awesome strengths. The only thing she has been able
to contribute are her memories, which has left her with nightmares of her time spent at the mercy of
the evil Sarian–who everyone has gone to fight.
Alone with her emotions, Tara finds herself falling into a city of depravity and corruption. And amidst all
this evil is a young man with an agenda of his own, who leads her down a road that will either prove she
is a hero at heart, or drag her into a world she’s always feared.
He wants revenge, she wants redemption. And in an underground rings of missing girls and bloody
sacrifices, only the fearless can survive…
Author Theresa McClinton
A long time enthusiast of things that go bump in the night, Theresa started her writing career as a
journalism intern—possibly the least creative writing field out there. After her first semester at a local
newspaper, she washed her hands of press releases and features articles to delve into the whimsical
world of young adult paranormal romance.
Since then, Theresa has gotten married, had three terrific kids, moved to central Ohio, and was
repeatedly guilt tripped into adopting a menagerie of animals that are now members of the family. But
don’t be fooled by her domesticated appearance. Her greatest love is travel. Having stepped foot on the
soil of over a dozen countries, traveled to sixteen U.S. states—including an extended seven-year stay
in Kodiak, Alaska—she is anything but settled down. But wherever life brings her, she will continue to
weave tales of adventure and love with the hope her stories will bring joy and inspiration to her readers.
