And that the people who killed her father are now after her too. And some of them aren’t exactly human… Caught between the four new nations of a divided, future America, Chloe has found some semblance of peace in the deep ‘earthscrapers’ of LA, filling her days in the depths working menial jobs and trying to dodge the soldiers of the powerful WSA (Western States of America), and the terrifying nano-vamps that hunt people just like her. But deep inside her there’s a need to discover the truth of her past. And when her identity is exposed, and her hunters begin closing in once more, Chloe knows she needs help if she’s ever going to unravel the mystery. She is the last in her bloodline. The last Phantom.

When I began writing this series, I set out to create something for readers who enjoy a thought-provoking book. Heartblaze books are told from the point of view of multiple characters and take place in the present-day as well as the past. These books are not for people looking for light and fluffy reading, nor for readers completely unfamiliar with the genre.Is this series appropriate for all ages?No. The series is written for adults, young adults, and mature teens.What types of creatures are in the novel?Quite a number: vampires, werewolves, werebears, ghosts, witches, and fae. All of them are portrayed in new ways. For example, the werewolves are shifters who channel animal spirits from the distant past. The fae have their own unique language that plays a role in some of the books. It’s a functional language that I spent a year developing!
