At long last, here is the big reveal! The cover for book 2 of the Convergence Series – “Blood Bound.”

Blood Bound (Book 2 of the Convergence Series)

After many years of hardship and separation, Halea has become Varg’s mate, and life should be perfect, but it isn’t. She can’t escape the feeling that the Chaos Dimension will someday return, and with Lord Anshar gone, who will protect them? Though no longer a priestess, she cannot ignore the call of the goddess that is warning her of the storm ahead. When the tears return, she soon discovers that Lord Anshar is alive, but he is not the same; the Chaos has driven him mad and now he seeks to kill every priestess and claim Halea for his own. Varg was not able to defeat the dragon therian the last time they battled, but now he must find a way to master his sword, the Fang, or risk losing Halea forever. Varg’s worst nightmare may become a reality when the Swordmaster Crow foretells of Halea’s death. Together they must find a way to defeat the Dragon Lord before he summons another convergence that will bring an end to their world.

As a priestess in the service of the dragon goddess, Halea must roam the land hunting demons and sealing tears caused by the Chaos Dimension that seeks to converge with their world. She has sworn an oath to devote herself only to her goddess, and if necessary, will even die for her mission.

One day she discovers that her beloved childhood friend, Varg, has survived the devastation of the last convergence and has since risen to become the alpha of his people, the lycans. Together they battle the forces of Chaos, but when Varg wants Halea to be his mate, she is torn between her oath and her desire to be with the Wolf King who loves her. Only a blood sacrifice can stop the coming of the next convergence, and with Halea’s life on the line, Varg will do anything to save her.

I have officially completed writing Book 1 of the Convergence Series (Torn Apart). 30 chapters! (Well 29 + the Prologue) at 115k words. It took me 3 months and 5 days to complete the entire book 😀 I am going to take a little break from writing for the next 2-3 days then I’m going to get started on Book 2 in the series which will be titled “Blood Bound.” I’ll still only be uploading just one chapter a week (every Friday). Sorry to slow-walk you guys, but at least take comfort in knowing that with the story completed you won’t be left hanging and if you’re patient eventually the story will be up in its entirety for you to read.
