Dale Highland never wanted to be a demon, never wanted to go back to the supernatural world, but now she has no choice.
A militant anti-supernatural group called the Zeta Coalition is trying to kill Dale, and a mysterious illness ravages angels and demons throughout the world. As the death toll rises, and the Zetas get closer and closer to Dale, she starts to realize the two things are connected.
To save them all, Dale will have to team up with John Goodwin, the man she once loved. The man who destroyed her.
But by the time Dale and John figure out the Zetas’ real intentions, it may be too late…
About the Author
Beth Woodward has always had a love for the dark, the mysterious, and all things macabre. She blames her mother for this one: while other kids were watching cartoons, Beth and her mother were watching Unsolved Mysteries together every week. She was doomed from the beginning. At 12, she discovered the wonders of science fiction and fantasy when she read A Wrinkle in Time , which remains the most influential book of her life. Growing up, she was Meg Murray with a dash of Oscar the Grouch. She’s been writing fiction since she was six years old; as a cantankerous kid whose family moved often, the fictional characters she created became her friends. As an adult, she’s slightly more well adjusted, but she still withdraws into her head more often than is probably healthy.
When she’s not writing, Beth volunteers at her local animal shelter, attends as many sci-fi/fantasy conventions as she can, and travels as much as time and money will allow. She lives in the Washington, DC, area with her husband and their three cats.
What People are Saying About This
"A page-turning mix of romantic suspense and supernatural thriller."
“What a rush! This sexy, intense page-turner swept me away!”
―Carolyn Crane, USA Today bestselling author
"Worth the wait. An excellent addition to the ongoing narrative. The ending alone sold me on the book, but to tell you too much would be to give away the experience. As I finished the last page, I found myself already starting the countdown to the next in the series. (4.5 stars)"
Joe Alfano, Qwillery
“Embracing The Demon is fun, sexy urban fantasy that will appeal to readers looking for a strong female lead. Dale Highland is kickass and snarky, the plot is dark and twisty, and the action sequences are top-notch.”
―Rysa Walker, author of the Delphi Trilogy
“Embracing The Demon is a thrilling, sexy, dangerous ride of a book. Count me as Team Dale, one hundred percent.”
―Nik Korpon, author of The Rebellion's Last Traitor
"What a ride! This is stay-up-late-to-find-out-what-happens, then hide-under-the-covers-after-the-lights-are-out classic urban fantasy, with sexy, smart characters and a heroine you'll root for. If you like your fantasy a bit on the bloodthirsty side but still hunger for complex characters, this book is for you. (5 stars)"
―Kathy MacMillan, author of Sword and Verse
“Embracing the Demon felt both darker and somehow more transcendent than Dale’s introductory story. The plot’s focus on one group against a perceived “other” resonates in the current political climate, yet is universal enough to feel timeless. The final paragraphs left my heart in my stomach, but I also need to know how Dale will face the latest revelation. Can she continue to embrace her humanity while facing the challenge of protecting the demons who look to her as Amara’s successor?”
―Jodi Scaife, Fanbase Press
