Amy Miles is the Amazon Bestselling author of The Arotas Trilogy. She’s an avid reader and an obsessive writer who always listens to the voices in her head. She’s been a carbaholic since birth and is now hopelessly addicted to Dr. Pepper.
As a lover of YA fantasy, Amy needs a little “bite” with her romance. She adores creating strong female leads who have a flare for sarcasm and a passion for lethal weapons.
She is currently putting the finishing touches on DEFIANCE RISING, the first book of her RISING trilogy. The highly anticipated final book of The Arotas Trilogy, REDEMPTION, will be released early 2013.
Roseline Enescue didn’t ask to become an immortal, to have all of the guests at her wedding slaughtered, or be forced into marriage with a man whose lust for blood would one day ignite the vampire legend.
Willing to risk everything for a chance at a normal life, Roseline escapes to America, but her transition into the human world isn’t easy. Mortal men flock after her while cutthroat girls plot her demise. Yet she remains relatively unfazed until she meets Gabriel Marston. As their lives entwine, Roseline realizes he is more than he seems. His ability to grind concrete into dust pales in comparison to the glowing cross tattoo that mysteriously appears on his forearms.
Despite the forbidden bond between them, Roseline can’t help wondering what Gabriel is. He’s not human. He’s not immortal. So just what is he?
Gabriel is gone.
Roseline is left with questions that refuse answers and only the memory of a man she vows to hunt and kill. But to do so, she must call a truce with her sworn enemy.
Together, Roseline and Nicolae track Fane to the underbelly of London, in search of Gabriel’s kidnappers. But when Malachi- an Immortal with mystifying origin- presents himself as their guide, Roseline discovers she is not the only one looking for Gabriel.
Buried within the secret chambers of the infamous Hellfire Club, Roseline discovers a grim truth: Gabriel isn’t just a pawn being used by the Arotas prophecy, and those who seek to control its power. He is Arotas.
Everything Roseline has ever known about her brethren is about to change. Emotions flare, friendships sever and the newly formed bonds between enemies are tested as she delves into realms hardly conceived. They are trapped in the midst of a battle that has been waging since the beginning of time.
The prophecy binds them all together. But will they break before the end?
Defiance Rising description:
Everyone has a number. For most, it’s the number of people they’ve lost since the day of the Assault. For others, it’s the number of people they’re still searching for. For me, it’s simple. My number is 51- the number of Caldonians I’ve killed to protect my camp.
They say your first kill is the hardest. I disagree. It wasn’t just hard, it was horrifying, but when you’re fighting to survive you don’t have the luxury of mourning the loss of your innocence. You just grab a gun and shoot.
I’ve been on the run for 217 days. It feels like a lifetime.
The rumors claim that it only took 38 minutes for the Caldonians to subdue our planet. There wasn’t any warning and there sure as heck wasn’t any offer of peace. They came, they slaughtered and they enslaved those who survived the initial invasion.
My family is gone. My friends are all that I have left. I will do anything to protect them….anything.
Redemption will be released in early 2013
