Jeanette Battista graduated with an English degree with a concentration in medieval literature which explains her possibly unhealthy fixation on edged weapons and cathedral architecture. She spent a summer in England and Scotland studying the historical King Arthur, which did nothing to curb her obsession. To satisfy her adrenaline cravings—since sword fighting is not widely accepted in these modern times—she rode a motorcycle at ridiculously high speeds, got some tattoos, and took kickboxing and boxing classes. She gave up the bike when her daughter came along, although she still gets pummeled at the gym on a regular basis.
When she’s not writing or working, Jeanette spends time with family, hikes, reads, makes decadent brownies, buys killer boots, and plays Pocket Frogs. She wishes there were more hours in the day so she could actually do more of these things. She lives with her daughter and their ancient, ill-tempered cat in North Carolina.

At first, I was disappointed that this story switched to a new character as the main character, but I found Laila to be quite interesting and different. I did like how it continued the story of the first book, with the same characters, though I missed seeing things through Kess` eyes, and seeing her relationship with Cormac grow. I kinda fell in love with Finn in this book, who was absolutely adorable and perfect, and you can definitely see how he is a ladies man. This story was action-packed with a lot of interesting characters and twists. I`m looking forward to the next one.
