You guys have been so incredibly supportive and patient as I’ve worked on other projects in between the Brethren books. I know many of you have been eagerly awaiting DARKNESS FALLS, the last book in the series — and the exciting conclusion of Brandon and Lina’s love story. I also know I’ve been incredibly remiss in getting that book to you, and for that, I’m truly sorry. But I wanted to let you know I’ve been working on it in earnest now, and am really excited about the story that’s developing. Brandon and Lina will always be characters who are near and dear to my heart, and I want to give them a book that does the two of them — and everything they’ve been through — justice! I’m about 27,000 words into DARKNESS FALLS as of today, and will keep you guys updated on my progress.
In the meantime, here’s a little teaser for you from the manuscript. Enjoy!
From DARKNESS FALLS:
“I thought you’d turned control over to Benoît,” Lina said. “All of your business assets. Dominance over the clans.”
“I tried,” Augustus replied. “God knows I tried, Angelina, and Benoît did, too, but…” The cleft between his brows deepened, and he hung his head, his hands closing into fists. “When Michel died, I realized I couldn’t run from this anymore. I couldn’t put aside my responsibilities, my obligations to my people for my own selfish gains.”
“And what does Eleanor think about that?”
It had been for Eleanor that he’d agreed to relinquish dominance over the Brethren in the first place; for Eleanor that he’d sacrificed everything he’d worked for, the veritable empire he’d built nearly single-handedly over the last three centuries. He’d done it gladly, willingly—only for her.
A pained expression crossed his face. “Eleanor is dead.”
