Prepare for a new world, and a new Dimension.

Dane and Meirah are back, but they are not alone...

An enemy from their past has returned and is determined to get revenge on those he felt betrayed him and destroyed his life, his home. You've seen Mikaire, now enter Almareyah, where even a mere step into a puddle of water can mean torture, agony, and death.

After a fight separates Dane & Meirah, they discover their enemy has survived the death of Mikaire and he is out for revenge. And this time he has powers - wizard powers! Creating his own Dimension in the folds of time, he is unstoppable in his quest to make Meirah his Queen and Dane his blood slave.

EXCERPT:
Prelude


Dane Bainbridge died under the heat of a desert sun. At the moment of death blackness surrounded him and the pain of life vanished. Then came the light. Beautiful azure bound his body-less mind. And everywhere flowed water.

Peace.

All the troubles, tortures, fear and worry drifted away on the tides. He could have remained there forever. But soon there was something else. Red. Just a color, but not a color. Hair. Red hair. A word.

Meirah.

The word drifted through his unconscious mind, but he didn’t know what it meant.

Kaeplan.

Yes, that was a name he knew all too well. Kaeplan had killed him. They’d been fighting for centuries. And it was Dane who lost in the end.

But, if Kaeplan was here, then he must be dead too. But, where were they? Heaven? Hell? Or some other place? Hell. If such a place existed, they both deserved its fiery end.

So, even those from other dimensions went to Hell. But then…what was Hell but another Dimension in the folds of time. Just as Mikaire had been. Just as in Almareyah.

Someone was speaking. He couldn’t yet hear the words. He blinked open his eyes. That’s when he saw it. Just a sliver at first, but it grew into a ball of bright white light. Not Heaven, for if he had landed there, Bruce would be chastising him for his disbelief.

A face came into focus then, blocked out the light. She was beautiful with long brown hair that perfectly framed a sculpted face, high cheekbones and big brown eyes. She drew closer to him, and behind her he saw another. Both scantily clad.

As beautiful women closed in around him, Dane reveled in the paradise of his own thoughts.

A dream.

He tried to move, to reach to them. But the pain returned. His back aflame, his arms ached, legs stiff and sore.

Hell hath no fury… And the blackness returned once again.

GUEST POST:
What is your favorite book genre to read and why?

Wow. That’s a tough one. I generally love books not so much for the genre, but the content and the writing. I will pick up almost anything, start to read and see if it hooks me. If it does, I continue on until it either loses its momentum and hence my attention, or I finish it, whichever comes first.

If I had to pick a favorite genre, I think it would be time travel and fantasy romance. I have 3 favorite time travels; Timeline by Michael Crichton, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and Remembrance by Jude Deveraux. I also love an extremely well-written vampire novel. I adore Anne Rice because she has an amazing writing voice. Her stories are fast paced and well written. She was my main writing influence growing up, so I learned to write fast-paced, unique stories (in my own voice and style).

I also like dystopian if its well written and interesting enough. Unfortunately, most dystopian novels, unlike movies, are a bit dull or hard to read in my opinion. The Hunger Games books are an exception. Rarely do I read books written in present tense, but these just seem to need to be written that way. It adds to the immediacy of the story and is very well done. Same with fantasy. I love it, but it has to have some pretty interesting characters and non-ending action.
