Noor is the
unwanted, unloved third born of the Aten, chosen vessel of the sun goddess,
Sol. While she has no chance at inheriting her father’s title, what she truly longs
for is peace from his unrelenting hatred. Hope builds that she may finally be
able to claim that reprieve when a missive arrives from the House of the Moon.
The new Lumin,
chosen of the moon god, Lumos, seeks to broker peace with the Kingdom of Helios
for the first time in ages. He envisions open trade routes and an end to
archaic rivalries. His dedication to this cause extends to visions of a union
between the two families by marrying one of Aten’s daughters, if one of the
matches is a fit.
Driven by his
own twisted agenda, Noor’s father is willing to sacrifice his daughters as
pawns to steal the crown for him to further his despotic reign, pitting sister
against sister in a brutal battle for power. But Noor must come out the victor,
either by capturing the Lumin’s heart or stealing his crown. For whomever wears
the crown of moonlight, holds the power of the moon itself. With such strength
at her command, she could finally defeat her tyrannical father.

for dead, Citali’s cries are heard by the Wolven of Lumina. In a flurry of fur
and fang, Beron rushes to her aid yet fears he arrived too late. With what
would have been her dying breath, Citali whispers a secret that changes

can the two stop fighting one another and work together to hunt and destroy the
darkness spreading over the sands like a plague of locusts? Or will the sands
of time run out for them both?

Casey Bond lives on a rural farm in West Virginia with her husband and their two beautiful daughters. She writes phoenixes – gloriously flawed and morally gray characters that fiercely rise from the ashes of their circumstances. World building is one of her favorite hobbies, along with stamping metal jewelry, swimming, and enjoying the beauty of nature. She thinks thunderstorms are better than coffee and that watching a meteor shower is the closest thing to magic you might ever see. She’s a firm believer that every amazing book needs a world you want to wrap yourself in, a character you want to win, and a love you would fight for.
