πŸ“š Favorite Books πŸ“š

This is one of those authors that you find and are so happy that you did! The stories continue into each other so reading in order is recommended.

  • Silver Silence Book One of the continuation series Psy-Changeling Trinity

M.J. Haag:

  • Demon Ember Book One of Resurrection Chronicles

Sandy Williams:

Another rare find, took me into a world of space travel and strength.

  • Shades of Treason Book One of Anomaly Series

Shannon Mayer:

I have seen a lot of these going around now; but getting older myself for some reason had me all in for trying it out and I am very glad that I did! Were Bigfoots, Witches, Fae, Incubus - I mean really with so much thrown in how could things not go wrong?
