"I love you,” he murmured as the wisps of light returned to his body.
What he didn’t say was that his love came with a heavy price and life was never going to be the same again.
Twenty six year old Ana Martin has a past she is trying to forget. When she meets Gabriel, she believes that she can finally leave her troubles behind her. But Gabriel has a secret…
He may look human and be born of this world, but he is from an ancient race of empathic beings known as the Siis, a race that evolved millennia ago to a state of consciousness yet still take solid form to hide among us.
When the homeless start dying at an abandoned Tannery, the police chalk it up to suicides. Ana knows different. The Siis have a secret, a past mistake they would rather forget, one that puts Ana in more danger than she can ever comprehend.
Before long, she becomes a target for the Fae, once innocent children changed by the Siis thousands of years before. They are able to intensify and feed off the negative emotions of their prey, and are filled with malicious intent that has no bounds.
Can Ana survive the world of the Siis? More importantly, can she do it with her mind still intact?
Night of the Fae is the first book in the Ana Martin series, which follows Ana as she is drawn into the secret world of the Siis, an ancient race of empathic beings torn apart by war, treachery and the consequences of past actions. The second book in the series, THE HIDDEN LIGHT, is available on Kindle now.
Excerpt from book:
He crept towards me. A face of an innocent child, but with a smile of a beast, filled with sharpened teeth that glistened in the moonlight. His eyes narrowed. So much malice, so much need for death, not a glimmer of the child he had once been. The engraved dagger glinted in the moonlight, giving the silent promise of pain and torture. His voice cut through the air, harsh with venom, filled with centuries of bitterness, 'You killed Sheah!’
Full review off Shane Dunphy - "Boasting a likable, strongly realized heroine and a world that is at once fantastic and thrilling yet wholly believable, the Ana Martin series is one of those rare reading experiences that just draws you in and won't let you go until the final page is turned. Jenkins's Siis are deftly drawn: fighting, loving and laughing with emotion that leaps from the text, while her Fae are truly chilling: nightmare creations that bring a genuine shiver to the spine. Jenkins crosses genres with a sure touch, compressing mystery, the supernatural, romance and procedural crime into a genuinely compelling narrative. Ana Martin is a name that will certainly go down in the annals of not just fantasy literature, but of classic characters in general, and Lyneal Jenkins is, without doubt, a figure to watch in the world of publishing. Read Ana Martin now and find a universe you will want to return to again and again."
Review by Amber . B (Freelance Editor) "Not often do I read a book that makes me feel like I actually became a part of it. When I can feel what the characters are feeling...well that is a book written by someone that can write. This is a book built in the present time, and shows how other "beings" live among us and the dangers that one woman faces as she becomes more involved in their world. The characters are well developed and the story grabs you immediately. It is creepy, emotional, and edgy. The best part? It is something new. I didn't feel like I've read this story before, like I do with many others in this genre. I would definitely recommend this book."
