Overview

"Couldn't put it down!"

"Just when I thought I had found a point to stop and go to bed the book took a turn and I was in "one more chapter" mode. Cant wait to read more[. . .]"

The Awakened have existed since time began. Always there; never seen. Vampires with the ability to shape-shift into wolves retaining many of their abilities.

The clans have long since lived in peace with humans by an old order of law: nobody is to be Awakened without the Prince's command. Those who do not follow the order of the prince, will meet true death. These laws were put in place to protect the humans and the Awakened so that they may co-exist peacefully-though some clans believe those rules outdated....

The Raaka have been idle far too long. They find no reason to peacefully live alongside humans. They believe humans were put on this earth for food and that's it. It is time for the Runsasi Prince to step down and the Raaka clan to claim their rightful place as the true Leaders.

The Raaka Leader finds a woman who he believes will give him the advantage he's been seeking for so long . . . a way in to the position he so craves: Prince of all clans. There is just one obstacle with the woman: she's human. And she isn't one to be pushed around.

If only the current Prince would only stay out of the way.

Time is running out for one of them. . . .

This book is intended for adult audiences. Reader discretion is advised.

Meet the Author

Charismatic Goddess and Butt-Kickin Billionairess in the making.

Born and manufactured in Washington State (aka Goddessland), most of the books Ariana Browning writes comes from her dreams. Where her bubbly nature turns to the dark side. The characters constantly knock on the door in her head and adamantly refuse to go away, until she tells you their story. Thrilling her to no end.

She is the current author of: Dark Illusions: The Beginning, Dark Illusions: The Next Chapter, Always Consequences, as well as Dragon's Dawn. Her influences are Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Anne Rice, Keri Arthur, Nora Roberts, Danielle Steele, and Michael Crichton to name a few.

When she's not writing, she tends to her animals and garden, or rebuilds and repairs the house she lives in, hoping to reach Narnia. Never one to sit still for long, she constantly works on something that involves her hands in the cookie jar.

Stubbornly adamant and crazy enough to believe that she can change the world by showing everyone how to change themselves, first; Ariana plans to be the lead and show others that you too, can fulfill all your dreams of a better life. That by bettering yourself, you are changing the world.

From Ariana:
Message any issues/book errors/personal to ahbrowne AT ahbrowne DOT com. My door is always open. I love and appreciate all of my fans and family. If I overlooked something in my books? Or you wish to tell me how much you loved them? Would love to hear from you. Don't be afraid to chat me up. I try to reply to all of you, and always give you respect.

If you offer any semblance of a critique, I will take note of the information, take it into consideration, and try to fix to the best of my abilities. Be completely honest, and as thorough as you can regarding the issue. Even what you think can help to fix it, if you know. I don't take it personal and welcome your opinions to improve my craft.

When I get critiques, I often come back to the books, go over them with my editor, and try to correct the issues found, then upload the updated copy with the date in the information area. Once you've bought the book, you're always welcome to ask for an updated free copy. Just email me the request and I'm happy to do so.

    This story is a copy of 1996 tv series embraced.

    The story is 80% the same from what i can remember. I loved the show even though it was only 6 episodes. So, I enjoyed this book. No graphic sex scenes.. all were just implied.
