CHAOS is out: The end of Guards of the Shadowlands

Today, my 5th novel is out. Chaos is the third and final book in the Guards of the Shadowlands series.


This is bittersweet for me. It was hard to say goodbye to these characters, but I'm proud of their journeys and I hope this final book resonates with readers in the same way the first two did. Here's the blurb, which is somewhat spoilery about the end of Fractured:


With Juri in control and everything in absolute chaos, Lela plunges into the depths of hell to free Malachi from creatures that have waited decades to exact their revenge. But the Judge has her own way of doing things, and Lela must work with Ana, the new Captain, who has a very personal mission of her own. Together, they infiltrate the most horrifying realm either has yet encountered in the Shadowlands—the bitter landscape ruled by the Mazikin. 
The stakes could not be higher, and Lela must accept the help—and love—of people she barely knows or trusts. As alliances and loyalties shift and she realizes the soul she came to save isn’t the only one in need of rescue, can Lela summon the strength to see the fight through to the very end?
You can, of course, get Chaos at Amazon, but you can also order the hardcover or paperback at Barnes & Noble or your local indie.

If you're a fan of the series and aren't yet ready to say goodbye, you don't have to! You can get Vigilante, a short story from Ana's perspective that represents a bridge between Fractured and Chaos:


And you can also pick up Stories from the Shadowlands, which is 250-pages of bonus material, giving readers an in-depth look at the life of a Guard through Malachi's journals, bonus scenes, and a novella from Jim's perspective that takes place in the Blinding City. 


So there it is. Series done. And now all I'm feeling is gratitude. I never expected this series to find such enthusiastic fans, and I'm grateful to each and every person who has read, reviewed, told someone else about the books, or reached out to me to let me know how much the characters touched their heart. I worked really, really hard on this series, but knowing that the books have meant something to people has made every minute worthwhile.
