Mia Angelis is lost. As the daughter of a successful heart transplant surgeon father and pediatric trauma physician mother, she has been compelled since birth to become a physician. A course, unlike her two successful physician siblings, she never desired to pursue and which is slowly strangling the fading embers of her existence. Freezing at the scene of a fatal multi-victim accident during her first year of residency nearly ends her medical career.
While escaping the chains of unending familial disappointment and professional ruins to take a job at a psychiatric teaching hospital with an old mentor in Maine, a near fatal car accident casts Mia into the world of the dead. For the first time, the cinders of Mia’s extinguishing life are ignited as she is thrust into intrigue and the surreal world of warring vampires, angels and demons.
Mia’s search for answers regarding her rescuers costs her the life of her twin, and unearths an ancient, indiscernible puzzle imprisoning the elusive family who runs this exclusive and isolated institution.
Can she overcome the personal, professional and demonic adversities threatening to forever isolate her and encase the soul of the one who finally led her home or will his twin brother’s deception end her life, thrusting her soul into the awaiting arms of darkness; ensuring that the encasements holding the souls of her love and his family are forever sealed; keeping them apart for all eternity.
About the Author
I would like to thank all of those who have downloaded or passed on information about the books. This week we sent our first check to a school in our area for one hundred fifty dollars in relation to the second book in the series. Thank you so much and please keep passing on the books. The charities are good and we are so hoping that our message may inspire authors who are widely respected and published to consider doing something similar, even if it is only with a small percentage of their proceeds. Thank you again so much.
Writing for me was born out of the necessity for some peace and relief during a draining and guilt ridden time in my life. My three wonderful children and husband underwent the difficult ordeal of uprooting our lives to care for my parents who were each dying of cancer.
Drastically altering our lives to ensure that the wonderful people who cared for me during childhood and were giving and loving grandparents to their only grandchildren had their family living with them and caring for their daily needs during the three years of their waning lives when cancer ensured they could not take care of themselves, was both rewarding and heart wrenching. The guilt of drastically changing the lives of my children and impairing their freedom led to many a sleepless night and the birth of this novel.
Despite our trials, as we looked around us, we realized for everything we felt, it is nothing compared to parents who are dealing with young children who fight the deadly disease and the siblings who struggle with guilt as they enjoy pleasures that their brother and sister are sometimes unable to participate in because of their long hospital stays.
Grateful for the blessings that we have and aware of the trials and tribulations of so many families struggling when cancer strikes, this book is dedicated to them. I hope that in some small way it shows that even when times look bad, creative ways of dealing with it can sometimes emerge.
Hope your family is well and happy reading.
Please note that the first book has a note to the reader requesting that if they enjoyed the book that they consider donating what they would have paid for same to a local hospital that assists children who are suffering with cancer.
Also note that the second book is being priced, but that the net proceeds from same will donated by the author to a school in the author's area. Since the school has children under the age of majority, I am not listing same and asking for donations to be sent directly to them because I feel it would be inappropriate. Also for the libraries that download the book which I have now made free (sorry for the delay, I didn't realize the option) if there is somehow you could note that if the readers are pleased with the story to please donate to their own school, that would be wonderful. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

I enjoyed this book. It was different from so many of the vampire books I have read.
This book has so many emotions. Its an art the way it was written. Diffrent & creative love story. I loved it.
The story pulled me into the character’s world as I traveled with Mia down her winding road and into the world of the dead. Reading it for a second time, I found some interesting hidden and double meanings that I missed on my rush to see if Mia solved the puzzle to release the heart of her enslaved soul mate to give them a future which appeared to be hampered by not only an ancient curse but the couple’s own self-loathing. Although the book could lose a conversation or two, I could see how the two main characters fears, concerns and feelings of inadequacy could cause them to get stuck in the same conversation over and over again, struggling to take a step forward as their self-doubt causes them to take two steps back. I can’t wait to see if the double meanings hold hidden clues leading me to a new adventure in book two. As the author, I felt it inappropriate to leave a review, but requested and received permission from a reviewer on Smashwords to be able to post her review here. Please note, that although she provided the story with 5 stars, there is another reviewer whom did not contact me back with only 3 stars. If you like to read their review, it is on the smashwords site. Thank you.
