Cal Olin is a grudging member of the Immorti. A resurrected Aztec warrior, he knows he has much to atone for but doesn’t believe waiting for an enemy who hasn’t appeared in hundreds of years is the best way to do it. He’d prefer to spend his time in his CEO role with Civica, an organization dedicated to righting wrongs.

However, when Cal sees the unconscious body of a woman near a magical portal, he knows the long period of peace has come to an end. He’s shocked to discover the woman is Dr. Iliana Rogers, Civica’s second-in-command. The beautiful, argumentative thorn in his side has managed to open the gate and set off a chain reaction that could end the world. Is she an agent of evil or an unknowing pawn? He has to find out.

Nightmares have taken over Iliana’s dreams and with Cal, she no longer feels alone. But when he breaks into her house and tells her, incredibly, that he’s immortal, she knows she’s been living an illusion. It’s a shock to find out he was telling the truth and that her own mother was an agent of the malevolent Nilohum—and that she herself is fated to end the world.

As Iliana searches for the truth, Cal struggles with a terrible choice: does he help the woman he loves, or does he stop the end of the world and risk Iliana’s love…and life?

**Only .99 cents!!**

“Why are you telling me this?” Iliana asked.

Cal turned to her. “Are you a completely good person or bad person?”

“Neither,” she admitted.

“Kynot is a god who deals in absolutes. You are not a god.”

“I don’t understand.”

“Your humanity is your strength. You are a complex, irritating, wonderful, astonishing, beautiful person, like so many other people. Perhaps they are selfish. Perhaps they are not worthy. Perhaps they are. Like you.”

Q. What inspired you to write this book?
A. I’ve always loved the “Band of Warriors” idea: Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld, the Black Dagger Brotherhood (JR Ward) and Raphael’s Seven in Nalini Singh’s archangel books. But I wanted more of the women as well and various historical periods. The Immorti are drawn from around the world and from different eras in part to give me the excuse to bury myself in some fascinating research.

Q. What can we expect from you in the future?
A. More of the Immorti, definitely! Cassandra, who is the Greek scholar cursed by Apollo, is the star of the next book coming out in early 2020. Then will be the Roman general Marcus, who wants to be loved so desperately it makes him an easy target for his enemies. I’m also going to be starting an exclusive read-as-I-write book for my newsletter subscribers this winter. You can sign up here.

Q. Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Immortal Redemption?
A. The main characters are Cal Olin, a resurrected Aztec warrior, and Iliana Rogers, who is shocked to discover she’s fated to end the world. Cal is a very reserved man, deeply spiritually wounded by the atrocities (in his opinion) he committed as an Eagle Knight and he now investigates mass graves as a way to redeem himself. Iliana is more open but she also has a lot to deal with when she learns not only that Cal is immortal but his job is to stop her before she can open the gates to Chaos. This leads to some issues in their relationship, obviously.

Q. What are the inspiration for the settings?
A. My books are set primarily in Toronto, Canada, where I live. Immortal Redemption is no different and Iliana lives in a turn-of-the-century neighborhood in the west end of the city. However, the Immorti have the ability to apparate to other locations, so it was a shame to keep Cal and Iliana here. All of the places they travel to are based on places I’ve been. For instance, in Paris, the café at the top of the Parc de Belleville where Cal and Iliana have dinner is the Moncoeur Belleville, where we would go to play cards and drink wine as the sun set. I get a double benefit of bringing my characters to places I’ve seen myself: it’s easier to write the scenes (with a little help from Google Maps) and I get to revisit the fun times in my mind!

Q. What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
A. Because I’m a pantser, I didn’t really know where the book was going to go. I had the ending and the image of Iliana waking up in the cave. Other than that, I enjoyed experiencing the story as I was writing it.
