Amy Maurer Jones has been happily married to her own version of Edward Cullen for sixteen years. She lives in the small town of Tabor City, North Carolina (close to the North and South Carolina shore) with her husband Kelly and their two beautiful children, Olivia and Keaton.
Amy loves reading and writing Young Adult because she finds young people inspiring. She appreciates how teens are able to look at the world with a fresh perspective and willingly open their minds to the endless possibilities that life has to offer. She particularly enjoys writing strong heroines who face problems head on, learn, grow and mature into the type of people who do the right thing.
When Amy isn't reading and writing, she teaches high school theater arts and dance. To say that Amy has a flare for all things creative would be an understatement, just don't ask her to assemble anything that requires instructions or sadly, you will be out of luck!

This prequel tells the story of Shayan’s fall from being an Oracle over Humanity. Shayan started out with the best of intentions, but somewhere along the way he lost his way. He truly wanted to help humans find their way to the Land of the Shawdowless, but lost sight of what really mattered and let power and pride get in the way. Take a journey as Hala portrays a story of a fallen one to the future guardians. What role did Shayan have in key points in history? Did Shayan ever find his way home or did power prove to be too much?
I like how the author used pivotal moments in history in her story to show what role her character played in causing such horrible acts on mankind. It was neat to think someone supernatural being the mastermind behind the assignation of JFK or even the death of John Carver back in the 1600’s. I did get a little uncomfortable when 9/11 was brought up. I guess it is still a little fresh on my mind to be used in a story like that. But all in all a good, quick read that I am sure is bringing lots of insight and background to the next books in the series.
