Imagine you have a secret, one so significant that it would mean the death of you, your family and everyone you consider a friend if it were revealed.
How long could you keep it hidden? A week? A year? A lifetime?
What lengths would you go to keep everyone safe?
Could you sacrifice everything you held dear? Could you forfeit your personal dreams, your goals and aspirations? Could you live a double-life, or adopt a lifestyle contrary to your beliefs?
What if you had to kill to keep your secret? What if it meant putting someone you loved in danger? What if you needed to do this time and again, or even over several generations?
Could you change your future to ensure theirs? Would you do it for the common good?
Imhara Kaal, my demon-blood heroine, does all this and more in Allegiance Sworn, the latest installment in my fantasy romance series, The Light Blade Series. The war between demons and humans is reaching crisis point, and she and her Clan must choose where their allegiance lies.
Bound by duty yet tormented by the weight of leadership, Imhara is tempted to cast aside her responsibilities when Arek Barial enters her life. He draws her like no other man ever has and rekindles a dream she’s long suppressed.
The pressure of difficult decisions and harder actions have weighed upon Imhara during her time as Clan leader but as the human Light Blade warrior could be the one to help her achieve her goals, the choice to tell him about the double-life her Clan has been leading for the last five hundred years is the most dangerous one she’s made so far.
Arek’s spent his life hating and killing demons and he believes she’s his enemy – yet the gamble could be worth the risk – especially when it could mean living a life free of lies, secrets, and the fear of discovery. So, it’s probably a good thing that she’s the enemy he can’t resist…
Death, demons and secrets – sound intriguing? Enough for you to journey with Imhara & Arek as they uncover some heart-shocking truths?
Go on, make the decision to join them…take a walk on the wild side – I dare you!
Kylie Griffin’s obsession with all things paranormal/fantasy started at an early age, when she used to imagine the jacaranda tree in her front yard was a spaceship used to defend the world from invading enemies. Writing stories seemed a natural extension to her childhood adventures. Today, she’s a primary school teacher and in her spare time, she writes and reads all things paranormal. You can follow her on facebook here and on twitter here.
