Unquiet spirits. A gathering underground war. And a love that complicates everything.

In Mick’s quiet Missouri town, strangers stand out—especially mysterious women who vandalize cars in front of the local grocery store. It’s strange, but none of Mick’s business … until he notices the woman’s busted lip. The right thing to do is offer her a ride and a place to hide out—which is how he ends up with her knife against his throat in his own apartment.

Waapikoona has nearly reached her quota of bodies to raise her sister from the dead. When it’s this easy to take her next valuable soul, she can’t say no. But she stalls killing Mick, sensing another regret she’ll have to carry in her already dark world.

Old bones are stirring underground, changing Mick. Waapikoona has crossed the circle of time, made a pact with a powerful underworld demon, and angered the thunderbirds. Mick can’t escape his new calling: stop Waapikoona and the unquiet she’s dragged into his town.

Recommended Reads: THE SCORPIO RACES

Here’s another magical story I couldn’t put down. Part of me was bothered by the idea of capturing and caging mythical sea horses, and that feeling only seemed to get worse as the story went on.

But I think that’s kind of the point. It adds to a darkness in this book that wouldn’t be so pronounced without it, and in that darkness this love story shines so bright.

One of my favorite concepts in love stories is when the differences between two people create the perfect connection, a meant-to-be team, and each brings something to the other. Where each person guards the other, keeps them safe from their demons. They don’t just love each other, they need each other in a life-or-death way.

And there’s so much more going on in this plot which I don’t want to mention for fear of ruining the magic.

UNQUIET Update – December 15

UNQUIET is with the first editor. When I sent it off I was like, YAY I GET A BREAK! Then I realized I have to use this time to write the blurb.

Fact: A novel’s blurb is harder to write than the novel itself.
