When Emma wakes up tied to a bed, she believes the mafia has finally caught up to her.
But the truth is so much worse.

She’s been mistaken for her twin sister, her sweet, lovable sister who’s been charged with mass murder and helping a vampire destroy the Seven Planes. If she doesn’t confess all, her kidnapper will pull the water out of her blood and into her lungs. Dragged into a reality where monsters and gods exist and mercy is nowhere to be found, how can she possibly survive long enough to save her sister? Because there’s only one thing she knows for certain anymore: Liz is innocent. And she’ll do everything she can to prove it.

He’ll see her imprisoned for life or dead at his feet.

Tasked with bringing in a forbidden child of the gods, Rogan never expected this job to be easy. But finding out she’s his lifemate, the literal other half of his soul, has just made his mission a hel of a lot harder. For now he has to make a choice:

Use his lifemate as bait.

Or damn the worlds to Niflhel.


Rogan’s middle name is Ketea. In Greek mythology, the Cetea were fearsome sea monsters. They were normally depicted as serpentine creatures with rows of sharp teeth, but in some stories they also had the head of lions, goats, bulls, etc. The most notable story they were in was the tale of Perseus. When Queen Cassiopeia claimed that her daughter was even more beautiful than Poseidon’s sea nymphs, the Sea God sent a fearsome Cetea to eat her.

Delentia was a sudden addition half way through the book. I was googling images of vampires and other creatures to use as descriptive photos for myself when I came across this adorable photo of a baby chimera. I then saw this excellent photo of a fury by Azhi Dahaki. And thus, Delentia was born. I named her after dementia and Schizmo after schizophrenia.

Since I also love ancient creatures as well as ancient mythology, I decided to name all of my angels (with exception to the arch angels) after prehistoric animals. For instance, Xeno’s full name is Xenosmilus, which is taken from Xenosmilus Hodsonae. It's a machairodont cat (similar to the saber tooth) and the reason I chose this one was because of this excerpt:

"Xenosmilus clearly wasn’t suited to stalking or pursuing prey at high speeds; rather, this cat would have lounged in the low branches of trees, pounced on slow-witted megafauna mammals as they passed by, dug its cookie-cutter teeth into their bellies or sides, and then let go and leisurely followed them as they slowly (or not-so-slowly) bled to death."
