Home Sweet Hell
Shea Tobin didn’t expect to be back in Verbank so soon.
The news of her ailing father drew her back home from half a world away. Back home to the memories she believed were better left forgotten, in a town that she felt was better left in her rearview. Verbank had always held its sleepy secrets, but Shea could have never guessed there were skeletons hidden in those closets. Skeletons that reached out to her from the dark, beckoning her to look deeper into the shadows.
Accompanied by her best friend and her once-upon-a-time lover, she faces a ghost story come to life.
There’s trouble in Verbank.
There’s trouble in paradise.
The mysteries surrounding their old house on Somerset continue to plague them. For every question answered, another arises. It seems that the ghosts of the past might be the least of their problems when a new danger manifests.
Shea Tobin is in the beginning stages of maneuvering a new, terrifying reality. Her lover, best friend, and some new companions join her as they trek into the darkness.
The Way Ahead
Nothing has turned out right since Shea came back to Verbank.
Trouble waits at every turn. For every breath she draws, another ill-twist of fate crushes it from her lungs.
Another catastrophe is born, cradled in the deepest, darkest shadows of Verbank. One that Shea glimpses through the eyes of a tortured man. She’s unearthed secrets and fortunes better left as death rattles, drawing her and her friends deeper into the unknown underworld of their quiet town. Mysteries they are determined to unravel. But not before they decide once for all who can be trusted. And who cannot.
Joined by flames old and new, she struggles to reconcile the disaster that has become her personal life with the weight of all she must do. With the weight of the world on her shoulders, she and her companions have no choice but to fight until there’s nothing left.
Their lives depend on it.
There’s no respite to be found – not even in the warm embrace of a love newly blooming. The Bearers are under attack, and so too is Verbank. A murder in their small town turns their world on its axis as Shea unravels new secrets and talents that make her invaluable in the fight for Verbank’s survival. Yet, she is more uncertain than ever if she can help save her town. Especially with her ancestors tearing her apart from the inside and a realm she can hardly understand beckoning her.
Mordai has come for them, again. And Shea can’t shake the feeling that her luck might be running out.
