A Note From The Author.

I began writing this series shortly after my M.S diagnosis. I had many reasons to fight. I had incredible children, family and friends, but this series gave me purpose. Whenever things become dark, I use my imagination to find the light within myself. No matter what life throws your way, you are stronger than you believe. I hope the character's strength becomes an inner voice for the readers who need it. Stand back up, and if you can't stand, rise within yourself. We are all beautiful as we are. We are all immortal.

All heroes are born from the embers that linger after the fire of great tragedy.

She slept a dreamless sleep free of dragons for she had slain them once again.

Fantasy adventure, magical realism, non-stop action with laughter, tears and a coming of age paranormal romance that will capture every reader's heart. A story of a teenage girl who overcomes tragedy and evolves into something she never knew possible as her immortal destiny comes to light. This paranormal fantasy will leave you breathless as it takes you through the darkness and leads you back out into the secret world of immortality triggered by choices in the afterlife.

The end of her life is only the beginning of her story.

This series is what would happen if Hunger games and Divergent hooked up and had a baby!

A comic romp through the afterlife with three Clans of naughty, certifiably insane antiheroes who battle while collecting partially immortal teenagers as they survive the exterminations of their family lines on their sixteenth year. If they've impressed the Guardians of the in-between with their bravery, they shall be granted a second chance at life as sacrificial lambs for the greater good. They must join one of three Clans of immortals living on earth and can be stolen at random by any other Clan until their eighteenth birthday.

    She had never coveted the role of princess. She'd always wanted to be the hero.

Would you live your life differently if you knew the Correction was coming for you? They have allowed you to live until the age of sixteen because they want you to fight back. Your family line will be erased from this world sometime around your sixteenth birthday. You and your twin sister were never meant to be born. There will be no place to run and nowhere to hide. You won't even know they are coming. Could you survive your Correction?
Do you have what it takes to leave your humanity behind?
If your answer is yes, then hold on tight.

Behind The Series ☥

One thousand years ago, procreation became illegal under the immortal law. Any suspected offspring will be allowed to live until the age of sixteen. At this time, a Correction will be sent to erase their family line. If your bravery has impressed the Guardian's of the in-between, you may be granted a second chance at life as a sacrificial lamb for the greater good in one of the three Clans of immortals living on earth, Ankh, Trinity or Triad. The symbol of your Clan will be branded into your flesh, and with this mark, you will no longer be permitted through the hall of souls each time you die. At eighteen you will be sealed to your Clan. They will train your partially mortal brain to adapt to immortality. Your next feat will be, Immortal Testing where you will be dropped into a floating magical Crypt the size of New York City into a Testing fuelled by your worst nightmares. In this personal hell, anything can happen. Here, you must die thousands of times to prove yourself capable of being immortal. Three Clans go into the Testing. Only the first two to reach the Amber Room will earn their freedom.

Sleep, sweet sleep till the morning
Just dream away and close your eyes
My love, you'll be safe until the morning
Sleeping in my heart, all through the night
Although bad dreams come to scare you
My love will scare them all away
My heart
The lights flickered, the pain went away, and her mother was holding her, singing "Sleep, sweet sleep."

"Most people who looked inside of a fridge and found body parts would freak out. She was merely irritated."

A very dark paranormal read that you'll want to read in one sitting to find out whether Lexy will overcome the odds.

Some parts of the book are very disturbing i.e. horrific abuse of children (these scenes are fortunately inexplicit); cutting etc.

These disturbing aspects set the scene for Lexy's development as a cold blooded killer. Whilst initially feral, she becomes civilised but is still capable of shutting off her emotions to embrace the kill.

Her affectionate relationship with Grey seems a romantic dead end as he has "intimacy induced amnesia". Hope that in other books she'll focus her interest elsewhere.

Book needs proofreading to correct the spelling errors and usage of incorrect words.

This is the first book in a side story series from the Children of Ankh main series. To get the most of this book definitely suggest reading the main series first. In the main series one of main characters is Kayn, but we also know a bit about Lexy. In this first book of this side series we get to learn how Lexy came to be a dragon of clan Ankh. What was her childhood like? A very disturbing yet extremely interesting story to better understand where she came from and how she overcame extreme diversity. Like the main series, you can't put this book down. I had to continue to the 2nd book in this series before coming back to write reviews. Definitely a very good read and can't wait for more.
