Overview

Melena Sanders faced her fair share of danger with insurgents and terrorists when she served in the U.S. Army, but now she is about to go up against a new threat. Her best friend, Aniya, has disappeared while on a trip to Fairbanks, Alaska—a supernatural haven. Most humans have no idea darker races lurk amongst them. Mel knows better. If she wants to get her friend back, she’s going to have to go in alone—but not unarmed.

Melena has a few special skills the Army didn’t provide, but the odds are still against her. She’s got to come up with a plan fast that doesn’t involve her, or her friend, dying. But danger likes to play it rough. A war for power is about to rise in Fairbanks and if she wants to get Aniya back, she’s going to have to step right into the middle of it.

Meet the Author

Instead of making the traditional post high school move and attending college, Susan joined the U.S. Army. She spent her eighteenth birthday in the gas chamber — an experience she is sure is best left for criminals. For eleven years she served first as a human resources specialist and later as an Arabic linguist (mostly in Airborne units). Though all her duty assignments were stateside, she did make two deployments to Iraq where her language skills were put to regular use.

After leaving the service in 2009, Susan returned to school to study history with a focus on the Middle East. She no longer finds many opportunities to test her fighting abilities in real life, unless her husband is demanding she cook him a real meal (macaroni and cheese apparently doesn’t count), but she’s found a new outlet in writing urban fantasy heroines who can.

    Melena is just beginning to enjoy her life out of the Military when her roommate, Aniya, goes missing while meeting a man in Fairbanks, Alaska. When Aniya fails to contact Melena, her mother and other friends, Melena has no choice but to drop everything and search for Aniya. Melena has a special talent, a built in lie detector, and she is known as a “Sensor”. Facing Vampires, Melena has her own worries. Terrified that Aniya is with the Vampires, she gets a chilling phone call from her, “GO HOME NOW”. She knows that there is no way she can abandon her, but once she finds Aniya, she is faced with a bigger problem. How will they both make it out alive? She meets a man who makes her heart race, but the timing is bad. Can he help save her and her best friend? How can you hope to love someone when you have kept to yourself your entire life?

    The interactions of the characters and the depth of the world that the author created is amazing. This book was such a wonderful read, I was unable to put it down until the very last page, wishing that I had more of it to read. This book and author has already been placed on my “favorite” list. Darkness Haunts grabs your attention, and not only holds it, but is a true pleasure to read. Fans of the paranormal will NOT want to miss this fantastic book.

    Melena is a sensor who travels to Alaska to find a friend who has disappeared, and walks into a nest of supernatural beings – all intent on preventing Mel from accomplishing her goal. Using her military training and her sensor abilities, she manages to get herself into a situation that will turn her world upside down as she finds unlikely allies in her quest to save her friend and as her own life hangs in the balance.

    I met this author on-line a couple years ago, and have listened with interest as she talked about the process of writing her first book. Although paranormal fiction is not my favorite read, I was eager to see how her personality translated into her writing, and found myself captivated by Susan’s ability to weave a compelling tale. She has drawn on her own military background and love of the genre and successfully created a well-written and entertaining story. Great job, Mistress!
