And August and her friend's paranormal abilities may not be enough to save what's left of humanity from what is about to come.

August stopped in mid-stride when the answer hit her. “Kill me.”
John’s eyebrows raised. “What?”
Kill me, so I can resurrect. I died, resurrected, then I healed Graysen.”
That’s insane!” John shook his head. “No way. You don’t owe anything to that man. He could be dead for all we know. Good riddance.”
Hopefully, he was, for all their sakes. “I gave my word. My father always said a man’s word is his honor. If he were here, he would do the same thing.”
Concern flared in Brandon’s blue eyes, and her heart squeezed with a physical ache. “August, no.” His jaw tightened. “That isn’t going to happen.”
It’s the only way to save her. We don’t have any other choice.”
We sure as hell do. You aren’t doing it,” John said, his voice stern and louder than usual.
Just because you came back to life once—twice—doesn’t mean it will happen again. What if it was a fluke? I love you. I can’t lose you.” Brandon’s eyes shifted to Keena. “Her doctor can continue to do what he can for her. After that, it’s out of our hands.”
August understood their reluctance. She was skeptical, too. She knew it was the right thing to do. She had to try. With only two-hundred children left, Keena was the future, their future. Besides, August wanted to know how her newfound paranormal power worked. “We can do it in a controlled environment with Dr. Higgs. I trust her. She knew my father and understood what he was trying to accomplish. Having her here will lower the risk if I can’t come back on my own.”
Enough of this crazy talk.” Brandon glanced at his watch. “I need to get back to work. Roman is waiting. You know how he gets if I’m late for security detail.” He placed his hands gently on the sides of her face and kissed her. “I love you.”
The warmth of his lips made her feel safe and treasured. “Right back at you.”
John grinned, his brown eyes sparkling. “You two remind me of my wife and me when we first started dating.”
August’s cheeks warmed. “I wish we could have met your family.”
Everyone had a story of their lives ripped apart, tragic death, and shattered dreams of the future.
He blinked and looked away. “I…wish you could have, too.”
Her shoulders slumped at his grief, and his misery crept into her heart. He’d lost his family on the day the ice came, when the church where they sought refuge collapsed, the old stone building crushing his wife and two daughters. When August was found, he had taken her under his wing, trained her how to use numerous weapons and taught her hand-to-hand combat so she could protect herself in the new world.
As Brandon headed to the door, he glanced over his shoulder at her. “We’ll talk after my shift.”
Her heart skipped a beat, and nervousness took over. “Okay.”
She had to tell him she couldn’t have children. Even though he’d said he didn’t want to bring a child into this new world, they were closer, in love. He deserved to know the truth. What if he had changed his mind? Where would that leave her?
Keena’s arms jerked beneath the sheets and caught August’s attention. She rushed to the bed.
John followed. “Is she having a seizure?”
I’m not sure. It doesn’t look like it.”
The teenager sat up abruptly, surprising them, her hazel eyes huge, staring at nothing, as if in a trance. Then she pushed her long brown hair out of her face.
John lowered his voice to a whisper. “This can’t be normal.”
I have no idea what’s normal anymore.” August put her hand on the teenager’s, hoping to soothe her. “Keena. Can you hear me? It’s August. Do you need anything? Is something wrong?”
I…am…the nightingale…buckle your boots in my father’s house…ice blood flows from the men on sticks…” She continued staring, resettled in the bed, and her eyes closed.
August slanted a glance at John. “That was weird.”
You’re telling me. What do you suppose she meant? Sounded like a lot of mumble-jumble to me.”
She bent the words around her brain for a minute, struggling to decipher Keena’s words. None of what she had said made any sense. A riddle, a puzzle.
I’d better get the doctor.”
August grasped John’s arm. “Wait. We both know there’s only one way to help her. Please. You need to kill me.”




The Sum of all Tears is back with a vengeance with the second book in the series Liberty. Liberty is back with all our favorite characters from the first book Icehaven. It is just weeks after the world has frozen over from a climate change experiment that went bad.

Supplies are running low for our little group of survivors fuel is running low and food is scarce as more people are sent out on scavenger hunts. The teams are having to travel further and further each day for supplies.

It is a dangerous and desolate world that they live in now. No one knows if they are going to make it back alive when they set foot outside the gates. They have to be on the lookout at all times for the Sproggs and Bleeders two deadly groups of nomads who rejoice in taking whatever they can from others. If you get in there way then you are no more, meaning you will probably end up dead in your tracks.

Some of the survivors have developed special abilities since the world has frozen over. Some of the abilities are more dangerous than others and require a little more control that the user doesn’t have. Some are not even aware that they have the abilities until they manifest leaving people in peril.

Liberty is filled with action on almost every page. Once I picked it up I didn’t want to put it down again. Once the pages started turning I was lost in its depths with all of its twists as all its secrets were revealed on each page. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough for wanting to know more about the characters and their abilities and to know how their story was going to end or turn out. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series Eastfall.


I highly recommend Liberty to all post-apocalyptic and dystopia fans. One click your copy today! I do suggest that you read the first book Icehaven before reading Liberty. 





Icehaven 
Sum Of All Tears Book 1 


They said it wouldn't happen. Everything would be better. They were wrong.

After a climate change experiment goes terribly wrong, August Madison, finds herself resurrected in a frozen wasteland.

With most of the world's population and food sources annihilated, depraved nomadic gangs patrol the lawless landscape as outlasters claw for survival.

Amid the chaos, Graysen Marx, iron-fisted leader of the domed settlement Liberty, emerges from the catastrophic event with his own agenda.

When August crosses his path, he sees an opportunity he must exploit.

She sees an evil she must destroy.

Fans of The Day after Tomorrow, The Handmaid's Tale, Mad Max, and The Hunger Games are sure to enjoy this enthralling post-apocalyptic dystopian adventure with a paranormal twist. 

**On Sale for only $2.99!!** 

 A young woman, twenty-two-year-old August Madison wakes up in a frozen world. Everything around her has turned to ice. How she got there or how she survived is a mystery to her. August meets a group of people who take her in and give her socks for her feet, oven mittens for her hands and a head band for her head to help her fight the cold.

August is lucky that this particular group of people found her and took her in as there are more people out there who would hurt her and even kill her if she had anything they wanted. They come in attack and take whatever they want whenever they want.

August and her friends have the opportunity of meeting another group of people who seem nice on the surface but what is underneath may just be a totally different story. A friend of August’s from way past is a member of this new group of people. August and Brandon have always been friends but when her mother passed things changed for her and they drifted apart.

At their new location with Liberty things are not as they seem. There are secrets hidden behind the walls of Liberty. Families are separated, the sick and the weak disappear, and people are banished for practically nothing and sent out into the freezing cold to survive on their own. What is going on behind the walls of Liberty? What are they hiding? Can August, Brandon, John, Snow and the rest of their alliance find the answers they are looking for? Can they find out what is going on in Liberty? Can they survive not only the freezing cold but what is coming?

Icehaven caught my attention from the first page and never let go. It kept me glued to its pages with everyone fighting for their lives and trying to survive the cold along with what was going on inside of Liberty the secrets and the special abilities that were being discovered among the people.

Icehaven was a very intense and engrossing read with all the secrets and the mystery as well as the twists. Icehaven had so many emotions swirling around with the sadness, the hate, the selfishness, and the love, the pain I mean there were times where I would feel like hitting someone and times where I wanted to cry. Once I picked it up I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the last page and even now I want more. I want more of this world of Icehaven. I want to see what happens next for our band of survivors.


I really enjoyed reading Icehaven and would definitely recommend it to all fans of the paranormal, dystopia, post-apocalyptic, and science fiction.
