Crimson Sky– Dark Sky book 1.

The big Hellion loomed over my head. I weakly slashed at it with my pocketknife, cutting the air uselessly. The Hellion swatted my arm away and picked me up by my throat. I slashed again, nicking its shoulder. It didn’t even flinch, dangling me almost a foot off the ground. Somewhere Abby was crying, yelling my name. But I couldn’t see her.

My eyes were fixed on the bloodstained needle pointed at my throat. One stab would do irreparable damage to me. If it didn’t drain me right here, I would bleed out in seconds. Unless I did something– and fast. 

They’re always watching. They’re always waiting. They’re always starving…

Ten years ago, the sky shattered and the Hellions emerged. No one was able to keep them from destroying the city of Westraven. Now that the bloodthirsty monsters rule the skies and have forced the few remaining humans underground, Claire Abernathy lives in a nightmare. She survives by using her skills as an engineer for a ruthless tyrant connected to her mother and father’s past failure.

Then Claire’s world is torn apart when her sister Abby is kidnapped by the Hellions, and Claire herself is taken by dangerous sky pirates known as marauders. But Claire will not be intimidated by them while her sister’s life hangs by a thread, and so she strikes a deal with them: If they help rescue Abby, she will fix their ship and give them the chance to take the revenge they desperately seek.

As Claire fights for her sister’s life, she begins to realize that the Hellions are not the only dangers she’ll face. Burdensome secrets and devastating betrayals threaten her at every turn, and if she loses herself to them, it won’t just be her life that is destroyed…

Midnight Sky– Dark Sky book 2

You can’t stand their screams, can you? Knowing it’s your fault?” His smile grew, and my blood turned cold. “I imagine your parents felt the same way.”

I held back my shock as much as I could. Ryland was definitely old enough to have been alive when my parents were, but had he really seen them? Had all of Westraven seen them? Or did they just hear rumors and remember failures?

The worst part was that he was right. I couldn’t keep up this act much longer. Not with the terrible sound around me. So much pain, all of it being caused by me. I couldn’t let it go on.

“A true Abernathy,” he condescended. “I should have known it from your looks, but this?” He chuckled. “This proves it.”

There are secrets, there are betrayals, and there are sacrifices… 

The Behemoth has been destroyed, and the bloodthirsty Hellions seem to have left Westraven. But Claire Abernathy’s mind is not at ease. A terrible disease plagues her sister, appearing to have been brought on the Vesper, the leader of the Hellions beyond the tear between worlds– the Breach.

To save Abby and stop the Hellions for good, Claire must find the machine her parents built before the attacks, and fix it before the monsters return. To do so, she needs the help of her crew, and must ignore the secrets and rivalries between her captain and the man she saved.

Because the Hellions are not the only dangers following Claire. Twisted humans and old enemies surface to stop her and destroy all she loves. While she is determined to endure the trials, a single betrayal could shatter the hope of a better world, and force Claire to make a choice that will cost her dearly…
