About the Author
By age 5, Sasha Hibbs' favorite movie was Gone With the Wind. By age 12, she completed her 7th grade book report on the sequel, Scarlett. By 18, she met and married her very own Mr. Rhett Butler and as it turns out, she never had to worry about going back to Tara to win the love of her life back. Fortunately, he stuck with her. With a love of all things paranormal, the ambiance of the South with its gigantic antebellum mansions and canopies of Spanish moss, and a love for her husband's rich storytelling of blacksmiths and the mythology surrounding their origins, it wasn't long until the world of her debut novel, Black Amaranth, was born. When not working her day job as a nurse, you can find Sasha dreaming of her next beach trip, reading the latest YA novel, and drinking more white chocolate mocha than she should. Sasha lives in mountainous West Virginia with her husband, Tim, and their two daughters, Aeliza and Ava. She is currently hard at work on book four in The Vulcan Legacies series.

Sasha Hibbs weaves together a variety of spiritual traditions to create her own complex mythology, and she does it in a way that is completely original. Well done!
I was instantly hooked by the plot and as I continued to read, I fell deeper into the tangled web of secrets that make up Ally's family history. Each chapter presented new twists and turns that kept me guessing and hungering for more. The characters are relatable and interesting, and the climax at the end of the book will leave you begging for the second installment in this series. A fun, fast-paced read!
Ally is lovable, confused, and tough. I cheered for her all the way and will follow her anywhere. In the midst of intense drama, Dave's snarky comments made me laugh.
The ending was perfect, but no spoiler here.
Downloading book two, Black Abaddon, as I write.
The world building is amazing, the characters stunning, with twists and turns that leave you reeling. Truly original and fresh. I cheered and cried throughout the book.
The twist at the end was a surprise I did not see coming and only left me in want of book 2 in this series!
