"It seems there is never a dull moment, with plenty of twists and cliffhanging chapters." – BookLife Prize
Ruby Spencer hasn’t slept in nine years.
Which makes her dream-like visitor more peculiar. Liora, an alluring immortal, professes to know the source of Ruby’s unique blood: blood that saved humankind from a bioweapon; blood that enabled her to become the government’s warrior against ZOM-B.
One of Ruby’s blood donors is the King of Darkness. And that’s not the only revelation sending shivers down her spine. With animals dwindling on Earth and his planet, the king—an ancient vampire with unfathomable powers, has set his sights on a new blood source: humans on Earth.
If Ruby is to defeat the most odious force ever encountered, she must embrace her legacy as The Tether and awaken her gifts. But time is running out for humankind and her family.
Survival teeters in the balance.
Note: Can be read as a standalone or Book #2 in the series.

Animals have their own language.
A language, Ruby Spencer doesn’t understand. Because if she did, she’d know that unrest festers.
The natural order on Earth and Athanasia is about to shift. Animals are tired of being underdogs to humans and vampires. And wolves are more than happy to lead a rebellion.
Without an alpha who can speak to their hearts, find middle ground, and quell the uprising, the animals will be unstoppable. The universe will encounter an inescapable turning point.
Ruby is the one and only Tether who can connect the animals with their rightful king.
If only she could be found.
Note: Enjoy as a standalone or Book #3 in the series.
