Mhairi Simpson is a fantasy writer (mostly blood and inner demons) and inveterate traveller (mostly Europe and South America). An only child who grew up in boarding schools and with a background in modern languages and paper pushing, Mhairi has spent most of her life with words on a page, leading her to realise her best shot at faking sanity is to be a full time author/editor.
Kait Nolan was one of the very first independent authors I read and I have remained an avid fan over the last year. I discovered Forsaken By Shadow when she released it, chapter by chapter on a weekly basis, for free on her website, and was very sad that I couldn’t buy the novella as it was only available in e-format. I fell in love with Cade, and shed tears for Embry because she loved him so much and couldn’t have him.
When I found out my new iPod Touch enabled me to read books, Nolan’s Forsaken by Shadow and the next story in the series, Devil’s Eye, were two of the very first books I bought. Mick soon vied with Cade for my affections, but he was obviously all wrapped up in someone else, so I made sure not to interfere. I also pounced on Blindsight as soon as it came out and, oh, that Ransom!
Being able to get all three stories in one volume, and such a pretty one at that, is just fantastic. I anticipate many long winter evenings to come as I snuggle down with a blanket and some hot chocolate to renew my acquaintance with the Mirus. These magical characters introduced me to Nolan’s writing and I have never regretted it.
