Harm no human…

A hired gunslinger, William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave. He believed that every life had a price. Until the day when he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life.

The Story Behind The Story

As a woman of mixed Tsalagi (Cherokee) heritage, I’ve always been fascinated by the beliefs and legends of all the Native American Nations. I spent many hours as a child, combing through the library, reading any and everything I could find that would give me insight into that part of my heritage as well as listening to many stories told to me by my family, all of whom wove great magic with their tongues.

When I first started writing the Dark-Hunter series back in college, I decided to base it around Greek mythology with one notable exception. The Daimons. A cursed vampire-like demon that wasn’t immortal and rather than feed from blood, they fed from something a little more... robust.

hey i got completely sucked into this book but when i got the book i wasnt paying much attention and missed the fact that it was part of a series haha but i was still hooked and able to follow the story. i really want to go back to the first bookand read them all in order though i had gotten laid off and finding work has been a challenge so the rest of the series will have to wait sorry to say but i am really looking forward to when i will be able to dive right into each and every story haha just wanted to share well take care.

I loved the book as I love all your books, but the Birth scene and what Simi did to the Heifer bitch goddess. Actually made me physically laugh out loud. Thank-you so much for that.

A song that I think would suit Sundown is "Bad Company" especially Five Finger Death Punch's cover of it...

I would love to know when it comes out in paperback. The hardcovers are 1. expensive for me and 2. are to big to carry around to read between classes. Soooo patient!
