One summer later...
Ari Moreau knows all about dehaians, but they’ve never heard of people like her. Hidden in plain sight, the wizards of the ancient world still thrive, rich and privileged and far from the ocean magic that could kill them all.
But when an evening party turns into a bloody dehaian ambush, Ari’s hidden world is shattered. Assassins from the underwater kingdom of Yvaria have come to kill her people and only the last-minute intervention of a gorgeous boy with inexplicable powers saves her life.
Two worlds are about to collide...
But the guy who rescued her shouldn’t exist. He’s impossible in every sense of the word. And the truth of his identity means that nothing in Ari’s life will ever be the same again.

Note from the author about Rebirth, the Altered Fate series, and the continuation of the Awakened Fate series...

Since the release of Become: Book Five of the Awakened Fate series, I've been discussing off-and-on the topic of the Altered Fate series, which was to be a spinoff story that took place after the events of Become. In working on it, however, it became apparent that the plot was too closely linked to the rest of the Awakened Fate series for the story to be truly considered a spinoff.
I consulted my beta-readers and my assistant and they all agreed. The stories need to be part of the same series. The stories are the same series.
So that's why the books of the Altered Fate series have instead become the next books of the Awakened Fate series. I hope you enjoy them!

About the Author

Skye Malone is a fantasy and paranormal romance author, which means she spends most of her time not-quite-convinced that the magical things she imagines couldn't actually exist.  A Midwestern girl who migrated to the Pacific Northwest, she dreams someday of travelling the world – though in the meantime she’ll take any story that whisks her off to a place where the fantastic lives inside the everyday. She loves strong and passionate characters, complex villains, and satisfying endings that stay with you long after the book is done. An inveterate writer, she can’t go a day without getting her hands on a keyboard, and can usually be found typing away while she listens to all the adventures unfolding in her head.

     A shape moved in the shadows at the corner of my eye.
     My breath caught and my gaze snapped toward the motion. Large, scraggly bushes met my eyes, the green shapes almost black in the darkness. The wind shifted the branches, and my brow drew down at the sight. I’d seen something else, though. At least, I thought I had.
     Something slammed into me, driving me backward off of the rock. Branches snapped on the bush behind me as I fell into it, but the weight shoving at me didn’t leave.
     A hand clamped over my mouth. A figure held me down—big and heavy and almost certainly male, although his face was lost in the shadows and his body was a black shape in the night. An armband wrapped his muscular bicep, the black fabric stitched with glistening blue threads that picked out the shape of a mountain. Brambles stabbed into my back when he pressed me down. I shouted behind his hand, struggling to break free.
     But he was strong. So strong. His other arm rose as if to hit me. I gasped, instinctively drawing on the magic stored in my ring, cursing how it was always so slow.
     Long blades like translucent knives grew from the back of his forearm.
     My eyes went wide. A dehaian. One of those spiky-armed mermaid creatures that never, ever bothered us because they didn’t even know we existed.
      He swung the blades at me. My magic couldn’t respond fast enough.


One lucky winner will receive a Mermaid Lover’s Swag Pack, complete with a ’Secretly A Mermaid’ drawstring backpack, a mermaid journal, a sea-themed magnetic poetry kit, a custom ’Be Your Own Anchor’ pin by illustrator Rachel Shneyerand a $25 Amazon gift card! A second winner will receive a $15 Amazon gift card. Plus, this giveaway is open internationally!

Striker Gryphon has lost his position of honor among the Ram, and is now a hunted man. A traitor.

Zo, the object of his affection, was murdered by members of his former clan. To honor her memory, he journeys to the highly secretive Raven “Nest” to warn strangers of their impending demise—though it could cost him more than just his pride.

He doesn’t know that Zo is very much alive and in another part of the region assisting Nameless refugees over a mountain swarming with wild men known as “Clanless.”

As each struggle to make sense of what their lives have become, they fight and claw to reach the Allied Camp, their last hope in bringing peace to the region.

But the road back to one another is treacherous and uncertain. And freedom will come with a price.

Guest Review -- Jennifer:

I loved this book as much as the first. The Cover is amazing! It shows how fierce Gryhon is. He looks ready for the battle ahead.

The action is non-stop this time. At every turn there is a new threat, heartache and betrayal. You are on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what is next.

Zo is really struggling with herself in this book. Her heartache is effecting her confidence. And she has a lot on her shoulders. Tess really gets to show her skills and her courage. I just love Joshua he is sweet and strong. And this time is no different. This book is filled with strong characters!

There is not much romance in this book, but the face they are fighting to get to one another speaks just as much. This is must read!! Jennifer Jenkins will not let you down!

Damaris Review:

CLANLESS by Jennifer Jenkins is everything I expected and more! It's filled with so much action, I could hardly catch my breath! I was completely lost in the pages. The romance will leave you with tons of butterflies in your stomach. Loved it!

It is no secret that NAMELESS (book one) is one of my ALL TIME favorite reads EVER! When I was asked to read and review CLANLESS (book two), my poor heart skipped a beat.

CLANLESS kicks off pretty much where NAMELESS left off. And let me tell you, when NAMELESS ended I was stuck in the same position with my jaw hanging wanting more for about ten minutes. No lie! I absolutely loved this book! Every word devoured my poor little heart. It was one that I got so lost in, I forgot to eat, drink, and more!

CLANLESS lacks NOTHING. To me, there is triple the action and suspense in this book than in the first book. Zo really finds herself in mess after mess, but not once does she come off weak or scared. She knows when she makes a mistake and owns up to it. She is also not afraid to take charge and do what must be done.

There isn't one character in this book that I dislike. And that is very rare for me. I usually dislike one or two characters, but Jenkins did such a great job with her characters that it was hard not to get emotionally attached to them. Even the villains in the story I had some kind of attachment to. Jenkins has created a world that is so believable and crazy, you can picture everything clearly in your head while reading. The story also moves along and progresses. There wasn't a dull moment once. Jenkins writing is great!

There isn't much else I can say except that this is one series you MUST READ!

5 Stars!!

(Seriously, she’s obsessed with ancient warfare.) However, life had different plans in store when the writing began. As a proud member of Writers Cubed, and a co-founder of the Teen Author Boot Camp, she feels blessed to be able to fulfill both her ambition to work with teens as well as write Young Adult fiction.

Jennifer has three children who are experts at naming her characters, one loving, supportive husband, a dog with little-man syndrome, and three chickens (of whom she is secretly afraid).

When did you realize that you wanted to become a writer? What was the very first thing you ever wrote?
I think I’ve always been a writer, in high school I would write a lot of fan fiction with friends, short stories etc. But I only realized recently that I wanted writing to be my profession after I had to write and illustrate a children’s book for a class project I was doing. After I did that I loved it so much that it haunted me, as a result I decided to try to so more writing some more and now I’m not stopping.

Yes I do read reviews of my books and I take the bad ones with stride. But I always try to look for constructive criticism so that I can improve my writing in order to please the fans.

How did you come up with the idea of Nika?
For this book title it was simple enough as I used the name of the main character. For Seychatka two I’m playing around with some titles that I want to be original and still encompass the entire book. I will let you know how that turns out.

What's the one piece of technology you can't live without?
My Phone I feel handicapped without it.

Do you find it hard to kill off your characters?
Sometimes I find it hard to kill off some of the characters because it hurts the others. But it helps to evolve the other charters so I have to do it.

Creative, determined and organized.

What do you normally like to read when not writing?
I read a lot of Fantasy, paranormal and romance.

Carnival would be my favorite as both the islands of Trinidad and Tobago shuts down for one big party.

Book Blast w/ Giveaway: TOUCH ME by Skye Malone!

Title: Touch Me
Author: Skye Malone 
Series: Book One of the Demon Guardians Series
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Wildflower Isle
Publication Date: September 16, 2016
Cover Artist: Karri Klawiter

Demons are real.
And now I’m one of them.

I never expected my boring, regular life to change on a night out with my best friend. I only thought I was going to celebrate her birthday at a local club, not end up in a hospital after witnessing supernatural events that couldn’t possibly be real.

Talk about being wrong.

Now I’ve drawn the attention of the most dangerous forces in the demon world. I’m being stalked by a guy who can be in multiple places at once. I’m overwhelmed by a hunger I can’t shake—an impossible hunger that compels me to feed off the sexual energy of others, even if it might make me kill somebody. I’m losing control and entering a secret world that exists in the shadows of my own—a world filled with vampires, werewolves, and demons who look just like anyone else.

The night was supposed to be simple. Normal. After all, I thought I was human and my life thus far has been unbelievably ordinary.

Now it’s anything but.

Originally released as three novellas—Touch Me: Part One, Touch Me: Part Two, and Touch Me: Part Three.




Dark eyes meet mine.

Everything slows, like the world melts into molasses and in it, I’m stuck. A guy stands in front of me, his body only inches away, and suddenly, he’s the only one in the room. The dancers fade into shadows and mist. The music is the low thrum that underscores the world. And there’s just him. Black skin, dark as I’ve ever seen. Sculpted arms hinting at a strong body, as if everything of him is muscle and sinew. He’s about my age, at least six-foot-two, and easily the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on. And he smiles like he knows me. Like he’s saying hello.

His hand reaches out. Brushes a shadow, a girl, and shimmering mist ghosts away from her to caress his arm like a lover. His smile broadens.

The mist absorbs into his skin.

He nods to me, still friendly. Still like we’re acquaintances who’ve simply run into one another on the street. And then he’s gone into the shadows and the crowd comes rushing back again.

Pre-order a signed personalized copy of HEARTLESS by Marissa Meyer today!!!

This event is open to U.S. & International Readers! 

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the yet-unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend and supply the Kingdom of Hearts with delectable pastries and confections. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next Queen.

At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the king's marriage proposal, she meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship.
