What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, they say. Well, I, Juniper Nevels, am about to test that theory, like it or not.
During my time at Rose Haven Academy, I’ve had quite a few ups and downs. On the plus side, I’ve finally been assigned the team of my dreams. On the downside, our accidental slip into the supernatural has brought an evil presence out of hiding.
My team and I can’t seem to catch a break. As if dealing with spirits and spooky nightmares weren’t enough, now we are facing an even stronger presence. It’s known as the Human Vampire. This sinister being was once an elusive serial killer and now his sights are set on me.
He’s after me, and he’s hungry for blood.
But even as our lives get darker, the bond between my four guys and me grows stronger. Now that our team is all finally on board, we have a real chance at proving to the academy that we’re worthy. And we plan to take our spot among the elite.
Defying everything we’ve learned about the supernatural so far, which isn’t much, the specter continues to torment us. After a few close calls in which we barely escape with our lives, we decide enough is enough and look for help outside of the academy. Because what Rose Haven doesn’t know won’t hurt them, right?
Our future with the RH Elite forces and our lives depend on whether we can banish this presence for good. Can the tricks we’ve learned on the outside save us, or are we headed into certain death?
The Human Vampire must be sent back into the shadows.
The real question is, can you ever banish evil for good?

My name is Thessaly, and at 22, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. Living with my parents, going to college, and hanging out with friends is pretty much the extent of my mediocre life. The biggest drama I have going on with me is fighting a growing attraction toward my best friend Bram. Oh and avoiding needles–specifically ones that draw my blood.
See, on January 27, 2044, the DNA Networking Act was set into action. This new law provides those in authority to gather genetic information from citizens in an effort to achieve nationwide resistance to diseases and other weaknesses. Sounds promising, right?
Maybe. But to me, it infringes on a person’s freedom. The act prohibits citizens from declining to undergo genetic testing when summoned, and the deadline for everyone to voluntarily submit a DNA sample is fast approaching. I’m avoiding the process as long as possible.
Until one night the unthinkable happens: I’m ruthlessly abducted. Bleeding is no longer voluntary… it’s a requirement. And as it turns out, the four guys who captured me aren’t anything like I expected.
No one in our family had come from an easy life. From foster care to forming the Ravens at our small Boston college, the concept of danger had never been one we turned away from. Instead, we took it upon ourselves to serve as the lawless justice system on campus to stop unnecessary deaths from the distribution of laced drug products.
Why? Because of her. Because her death could have been stopped. That was why we formed the Ravens.
So what has changed? My boys have always been protective but now I felt as though there was a secret standing between us. As we begin to receive tips about the Letters, questions start to plague my mind. What have the boys been hiding from me? Why is my sister, Lucida, never around anymore?

I don’t fear the walking dead like most people, but that may be because I grew up playing Red Rover with them. Once they begin to decay, they’re not very fast, but they’re guaranteed to break through the clenched fists of the other team when they run through them. Sometimes they break those fists off completely.
When you’ve watched a dead man do the chicken dance upon your order, it’s hard to take them seriously. So death is the one thing I don’t fear. Not when the living are more terrifying.
I grew up with a certain set of rules that my dads and mom instilled inside of me. 1. Always be aware of my surroundings. 2. When shit hits the fan, stay calm and keep a cool head. And 3. Never reveal my secrets. Keep them guarded closely or risk the interest of those that would seek to use my power for their own gain.
Those rules used to be easy. They were what I lived and breathed. That was until I met Nate. Ever since I fell into his dark eyes, nothing has been the same. Four years have passed, and guarding my secrets has only become more difficult, especially when I have the world’s biggest crush on my boss and have grown as close as family to the crew I work with day in and out. Yet even though guilt is a bitter pill I swallow each time I lie to my crew to cover up some oddity of mine that’s surfaced, it’s what must be done.
And I could have continued to do so. The dead don’t tell my secrets, so confiding in them is cathartic, until everything changes, and everything I thought I knew is tested. You see, dealing with the living is tough, but the problem with the dead, is that sometimes, they don’t stay dead.

Ottilie Kingsford has dealt with the judgmental eyes of the elite her entire life, especially since she’s one of them. She leads a double life, one she was raised for since birth: Lady during the day, Spy during the night. She’s a master of blending in, and the only currency she deals in are secrets and lies.
When her assignment takes her to a disruption in the main square, she never expects to witness a magical war between gods and monsters. She most certainly doesn’t intend for the gods to catch her slipping away to give her report.
Now Big Ben won’t tick no matter how many tinkers work on it and the harshest winter in history has descended on London. The Gods keep insisting it’s the end of times, but Ottilie doesn’t believe in myths and legends. If two of those so called legends would stop ogling her like she’s some sort of circus freak, she could do her job. She just needs to stop the end of days and send the two men back to Asgard, where they belong.
The gears of Ragnarӧk are turning, and Ottilie will not fail her Queen.
Welcome to Rose Haven Academy, a place where extraordinary abilities is the norm.
I’m Juniper Nevels, a magnet for things that go bump in the night. A freak among freaks, you might say. Everyone around me has these amazing abilities; empathy, healing, telepathy. But I get to see beyond the veil. Lucky, right?
Things start looking up for me when teams are determined. It seems like fate when my best friends Dexter and Sterling are assigned with me, along with the sweet and sexy twins, Asher and Alex.
The RH Academy doesn’t normally assign co-ed teams, and I’m beginning to see why. One girl and four hot guys? What could go wrong?

Of course, it’s not just your average spirit, but one that’s out for blood. As the presence gets stronger, the veil weakens, magnifying the danger we’re facing.
My team and I must come together to end his reign of terror before we lose not only our spot on the RH Forces, but possibly our lives.
The real question is- when the shadows call, can I resist?

Strewn with blood.
Dominated by desire.

As she grows insane with power and my death appears imminent, something unexpected happens.
I see lurkers. They come to me in my dreams, touch me, taste me. Even though I’ve never met them outside of my mind, I begin to crave them.
Stories have been passed down in the town of Riverwood about creatures of legend, kings given the power to wield the seven deadly sins.
They tell me they want me, they claim I belong to them.
As I fall deeper into sin, they become mine just as much as I am theirs. What will happen if I submit to their desires? Will I morph into the very weapon I seek, harnessing their power for my own? Or will I find myself lost in their seduction?
The evil queen might kill me first. But I’ve made a vow to my people to take back my stolen throne while bathing in her blood.
Read my story and find out what happens…if you dare.

Born in the Sunshine State, Hayley Benitez and Amanda Crawford are cousins who have come together to write under the name Octavia Kore. Both women share a love for reading, a passion for writing, and the inclination toward word vomiting when meeting new people. Ecstasy from the Deep (From the Depths anthology version) was their very first published work. Hayley and Amanda are both stay-at-home moms who squeeze in time to write when they aren’t being used as jungle gyms or snack dispensers. They are both inspired by their love for mythology, science fiction, and all things extraordinary. Amanda has an unhealthy obsession with house plants, and Hayley can often be found gaming in her downtime.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
Both Hayley and Amanda have always wanted to be authors. Hayley has spent most of her life writing starting as early as elementary school. We started out by Hayley asking Amanda to read the book she was working on and give feedback. She was supposed to be an alpha reader, but after asking Hayley if she could edit some lines Hayley decided she was much, MUCH more. And so bloomed the two authors under the name Octavia Kore.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
Our current series Venora Mates came to Hayley in a Dream. The species Venium was something that her and her husband created back in 2016. She decided she wanted to write a book using Amanda as the heroine as an extra thank you for being part of her writing team. The Grutex started out as our villains who we, of course, fell in love with. And so birthed Gulzar and his village.
What are you working on now?
We just finished Ecstasy from the Deep and are moving on to a few projects we had in the works. One of which is a very secret project that we are very excited to be working with some other authors on.
Do you have any quirks while working?
We need our coffee and talk on the phone with one another while working.
What are your hopes for the future?
That we write things people enjoy, and can continue to produce those things. It is a scary world and publishing something that is very close to your heart is terrifying.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
It’s a crazy business, be prepared for anything. Write what you want and ignore the rest.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
We love you and appreciate you guys more than you could possibly know. Thank you to everyone who has supported us on this crazy ride!
