I’ve got a guest post today from S. Usher Evans. Let’s give her a big welcome as she shares the cover and a sneak peek of her upcoming release EMPATH!
About the Book
Lauren Dailey is in break-up hell.
Stuck between moving on and letting go, she puts on a brave face while crying herself to sleep at night. But when a mysterious voice promises escape from her sadness, she is suddenly transported to a new world. And in this place, the slightest touch pulls her out of her tortured emotions into the mind of another – an empath.
The villagers – sweet Aerona and her mischievous twins, wise Siors, and hunky Cefin – welcome her and the blessings her empath powers bring. But this world is not without its dangers. The Anghenfil, a fire-breathing monster, has haunted the village for decades, and has a taste for empaths. And that mysterious voice promising escape from sadness? It’s sounding more like a whisper tinged with smoke and embers.
“There,” Cefin said, pointing to a pile of rocks that leaned against the side of the mountain. “That is where I found you.”
“I was under there?” Lauren breathed. It was obviously a cave-in, and the boulders were thick and heavy. If any of them had fallen in the wrong place, she would have been crushed.
It was a miracle she wasn’t crushed.
She approached the pile and saw where Cefin must have dug her out. Seeing the size of the rocks, knowing how close she had come to not getting out, she felt a little sorry for being so angry with him. Although he was being an jerk right now, she wasn’t sure she ever thanked him for saving her life.
“Hey,” Lauren said, tossing him a sideways glance. “Thanks for saving me.”
“Just hurry up,” he huffed, pulling his spear off of his back. “The Anghenfil could be in any one of these caves.”
“The right response is ‘you’re welcome’…” She walked up to the pile and began pushing aside any of the rocks she could, looking for anything strange. She tossed a fist-sized stone behind her and gasped.
“There’s a cave here!” she called to Cefin, who was standing with his spear in his hand and not helping her whatsoever.
