Underneath the dreams lurks a deeply buried reality; Chloe and a handful of others are survivors of a decade old apocalypse that burned their home world to the ground.
Now their ancient enemies hunt them again. To keep their adopted world safe, Chloe must undergo a ritual of blood sacrifice that will have life-long consequences if she survives. Her lethal protector, Eliot Gray, must keep her alive long enough to do it.
Together they will uncover even more dangerous secrets buried in the past’s deepest, darkest ashes.

It’s a teaser! Evil, evil teaser! Where’s the next one?
Chloe Burke has dreamed a nightmare of fire and intense fire-hazel eyes as long as she can remember. But the nightmare is old news and her world is colored by her father’s death. It’s already been two months, but it hasn’t been long enough to ease the pain. She tries to avoid fighting with her Mom, fills her day with activities to occupy her mind, and wants to go home & end the date from hell. Instead, Chloe’s world becomes a clash of fire and darkness as everything she knows gets turned inside out.
The story caught my interest from page one. The writing is a little heavy handed at the beginning but I shrug that off because events unfold quickly as characters are introduced. Right away, I knew I was going to want more and eleven chapters wasn’t going to cut it.
Now I’m done and I have to say that I hope the next part to the story will be released soon. The story takes place here on Earth but snippets of another one is glimpsed through the characters. In a short time, I find myself intrigued & liking the main characters, and squinting my eye at the Abandoned. Vicki Keire, I’m glad to have read your story & look forward to more.
