Throughout history, myths and legends of extraordinary creatures have been told and retold. Fantastic tales of demons and banshees, gryphons and dragons, and of course, magic. Stories that every child grows to learn are nothing more than fantasy…or are they?

Beyond the world you see lies a hidden realm, the Mythrian Realm, inhabited by all of the creatures you’ve been told are mere fiction. Only one thing lies between humans and the truth: the Nexus. A magical barrier erected millennia ago to separate the two realms, it has stood the test of time. Until now.

For Mythrian Sha Phoenix, magic is nothing new. But when she stumbles upon a portal on the verge of collapse, her fate will forever change. Pulled through the portal into the Human Realm, she lands in the middle of Detective Connor Flynn’s brutal murder scene. Soon it is obvious someone is using blood magic to try to bring down the Nexus. Together, Connor and Sha must work to unravel the secrets before the barrier falls and the realms collide.

The Nexus is breaking and all hell is about to unleash…literally.

About the Author:

I am a wife, a programmer, and now an author. I have an adorable mini Schnauzer and more books than I have room for. I love reading romance because no matter what may be happening in my life, I can always count on my books to end happily ever after. The day I met my husband was the day I truly began believing in happily ever after. After hearing me complain a few too many times that I had “nothing” to read despite the hundreds of paperbacks scattered around the house, my husband began suggesting I write my own stories. When I finally took his advice I discovered that although I enjoy my day job as a software engineer, my true calling is to be an author.

My sister drilled into me an appreciation for fantasy and mythology, something I try to bring to my books. My debut novel, Breaking the Nexus started as a book written for NaNoWriMo and has grown to so much more. It was the conduit that introduced me to a fantastic group of independent authors who have changed my life in unimaginable ways.

When I’m not writing, I’ve found a passion for blogging and interviewing fellow authors. I also love reading (of course!), baking, crochet, sewing sock monkeys, playing video games, and all sorts of random crafts. I have an incurable love of rubber duckies and stuffed animals, and I believe nobody should have to grow up if they don’t want.

Prelude

 

Medieval Faire

Plantersville, TX

 

Gabel watched carefully as the Festivities came to an end.  He’d worked hard tracking her down from city to city as the faire moved around.  He’d managed to get ahead of the faire and volunteer setting up and helping out the two weeks the faire was in town.  This gave Gabel the time he needed to get close to her to gain her trust.

The first time he’d seen her in Kansas City he’d realized that he had a mission; for the first time in so long, he’d been wallowing without a purpose and more than once he’d almost gave in to the urge to end it all; but he lacked the courage to carry out the deed.  Then God had brought him out of the depths of his wretched existence with a simple command…Kill Them….Kill the Evil Ones!

Gabel forced his self back to the present.

It sickened him to watch this last couple weeks as people flocked to her for a chance to have their Tarots read.  Most people where so stupid to the reality many thought it was simply a trick for their amusement.  Only he saw and knew the truth of the evil that grew inside her and the taint that poisoned her blood and if he didn’t stop her she would spread to infect others.  It was only a matter of time before the evil spread and took over her soul.  He could not allow it to happen and tonight he planned on freeing her cursed soul.

The sun was setting and he was making sure the visitors where leaving as the booths started packing up and getting ready to head out to the next city.

He approached her tent putting on his most handsome smile.  He’d made sure to play the part of the gentleman these last couple of weeks.  Slowing he had gained her trust; while at the same time keeping his distance so that she couldn’t get a reading off of him.   Oh, how it disgusted him to pretend to be nice to her when all he wanted to do to her was….

“Oh, there you are Lance I was hoping I’d see you tonight?”  Starla shouted waving him over to her tent.

Upon hearing her voice his thoughts trailed off trying to play his part of the Knight helping the faire maiden.  He walked towards her his true thoughts guarded.  “As I; hoped to see you my fair maiden.”  He bowed low in the manner befitting the knight he was dressed like still playing his part.

Starla smiled and blushed slightly making her cheeks match the redness of her hair.  Her brown eyes sparkled with mischief as she curtsied low in her peasant dress.  The blush spread across her creamy white skin.  “I wanted to thank you good Sir for being so kind and helpful to me these last weeks.”  She looked up through her thick lashes.  “May I repay your kindness with a reading?”  Starla raised back up smoothing her skirt out.

“I don’t really believe in that kind of stuff, no offence to you.”  He lied.

“Well if you’re not interested…”

Gabel cut Starla off.  “What could it hurt to give it a try?”  He gave her his most rakish smile.

“Wonderful.”  She sighed.  Starla motioned for him to come inside the tent and sit.   “Now have a seat.”  She smiled sweetly at him.  “Do you think you’ll be following the Faire to Galveston?”  She asked hope lacing her voice.  She wanted to get to know more about him she wasn’t sure why  but something about him seemed troubled in a way that made her want to sooth his pain.  She had a feeling that something terrible had happened in his life that kept him guarded when he was around others.  She hoped that the cards would let her see more into this complex man that sat before her.

“No.”  He stated flatly.

“Oh.”  She sighed trying not to sound too disappointed.  “I see this will be our last time then.  Let’s get started then shall we.”

“When ever you are ready place your hands over the deck and open your mind and seek what answer you would like to find.  Once you feel at peace then divide the deck into three piles.”  Starla instructed as she’d done many time through the years.  Many people had the talent of reading the Tarot cards but only a rare few could see beyond what the cards where saying and peer into the people’s lives.  She had always had the gift to do this by touching the cards after the people had it seemed that something from each person transferred to the cards leaving a small window into the soul.

Gabel did as he was instructed.  “There it is done.”  He said.

Starla took the cards into her hands and a sudden chill ran up her spine making the hairs on the back of her nape stand on end.  She tried to shake off the uneasy feeling telling herself that it was the chill of the evening air.  There was no other reason to feel this way she reassured herself.

Outside the tent the park lights kicked on as the setting sun sank behind the trees.  The other merchants had taken a break for the evening to sit down with their families for a quick dinner before finishing their job packing up.  Inside the tent Starla didn’t have that luxury; there was no family to share the time with or to share the lonely nights with.  Starla was all alone in the world and soon she’d be alone once more.

Starla took a deep breath centering her inner self as she turned the first card over in the reading.

“The Devil,” A slight quiver entered her voice involuntarily.  “In your recent past you where surrounded by negative forces and you seemed to be trapped in their clutches.  Your judgment has remained clouded by these past events.  An unpleasant event will turn into a new way of life for you.  You will feel overwhelmed in the amount of work it will take to achieve these new goals.  You will be working very hard for little or no profit.  You will stay in a depressed state of mind and will feel trapped in your obsession.  You have been run down because you feel like you no longer control your own life but you are a slave to your work your destiny.  You have trouble sleeping because your past and future are always on your mind. “As she flipped over the second card her hands where shuck slightly as the feeling of uneasiness grew inside.  “The Death Card represents your present state.  The relationship you had with a loved one came to horrible end though the love you feel will continue to burn like an eternal flame.  Though you didn’t think it was possible you will find a new path in your life that will be a release for you.  You will be unsettled and move around a lot trying to find some semblance of peace but no matter where you go the unhappiness will follow you and you will seek a way to ride yourself of these emotions and you will find that you can no longer go on as before and will find a new direction, focus, to throw yourself into you.  You will lose yourself and death will seem to follow you where ever you go.    You will find yourself all alone.”  Starla’s face turned pale as she turned over the last card in the reading.  “You’re Future The Death Card…”  Starla’s voice trailed off as all color drained from her face.  “That’s impossible.”  There was only one Death card in the deck it couldn’t possibly come up again and yet it did.

Gabel grabbed her hand forcing the palm of her hand to the card.  “Tell me what do you see?”  His voice lost all its charm and all the hate and resentment came to the surface reviling his true self.

Starla’s eyes rolled back in her head as images began to flash through her mind.  “DEATH!”

“And who’d death do you see?”  The contempt he felt for her kind laced his voice.

“Mine.”  Starla said so soft that it was barely audible.

“Then you can see there is no use screaming for help or tying to make a run for it.  After all it’s your destiny and you cannot cheat your fate!”  Gabel grabbed the hilt of his sword waiting for his moment.  Starla was too far into a trace to fight; she was his for the taking.

Only the white of her eyes showed as the horrible and shocking images that continued to race though her mind.  She was terrified of what she was seeing but unable to break the connection as she saw her own death and the death after death of other women yet to come.  Then for one moment her eyes began to come back into focus just in time to see silver slicing through the air out of the corner of her eye.  Then she knew no more.

Gabel watched as her head rolled on the tent floor.  Blood sprayed the ceiling and walls as her lifeless body feel from the chair to the floor.  He watched as the last spark of life faded from her brown eyes with profound satisfaction.
