“Hurt me. I can take it.”
Meet Malachi Saevitia, a chaos demon who was a snarky, less than humble side character in The Hunt. Just to make that ego a little bigger, the gorgeous creature is getting his own novel: The Uprising.
Eldest brother. Son of chaos. Golden child. Malachi has lived a charmed life in Hell. Having won the genetic lottery, he was born one of the strongest brands of demons, a ruler of chaos like his mother, and as basked in the wealth of the Saevitia clan for all his existence.
Unfortunately, the last few centuries in Hell haven’t exactly gone smoothly. After his little incubus brother abandoned him and his tormenting ways for Earth, he was left with his parents — who quickly turned on each other. How did it go? Father killed Mother’s lover. Mother killed Father. Father’s clan killed Mother. Left alone to guard his family’s estate as the sole survivor of the massacre, Malachi grew out of his more preening peacock ways. In The Hunt, he had the opportunity to reconnect with his brother. Slowly, the pair worked toward rebuilding their nonexistent relationship. These days, he considers Severus more important than any other Saevitia, the demon hierarchy and Hell’s social politics be damned.
While he may break rank for his little brother, Malachi is a shrewd player above and below. He takes what he wants, sees no qualms in bribing to get one step ahead, and will literally rip your heart out should you cross him. He likes to scheme in intricate detail, but is begrudgingly adaptable should his plans go awry. Snarky, arrogant, bloodthirsty, the chaos demon is finally ready for more than the life of one of Hell’s elite.
He’s ready to take charge of his own topside city.
And Farrow’s Hollow will do just nicely.
“Think twice. You’re strong, little one, but nowhere near strong enough to overpower me.”
Meet Ella Thomas, a side character in The Hunt, and the heroine of her very own novel, The Uprising. Ella is a twenty-four year old student with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Psychology, plus a master’s degree in English. She is currently enrolled in teacher’s college, and has grand plans of becoming a high school English teacher. Ella made her debut as angel hybrid Moira Aurelia’s bff in The Hunt, and has since cannonballed into the supernatural world with her eyes wide open, taking all the weirdness in stride while still keeping her sense of humor.
Ella is the second youngest of five. Her parents were both intensely career-driven while she was growing up, and therefore largely absent from her life. She and her siblings usually had to fend for themselves, which made her home life rather Lord of the Flies. She has a somewhat distant relationship with her three older brothers, while she and her sister were close as children but grew apart in their teens. To avoid the stress, she spent her final two years of high school living with Moira and her mom, two women she considers family in every sense of the word.
Despite a somewhat rocky upbringing, Ella has never been one to lack confidence in herself. An outspoken extrovert, she fills her time with clubs, sports, and all manner of after-school activities. From the time she could legally work and earn her own money, she did, though she took a break to live on savings and student loans during her university years.
Her friends consider her warm and empathetic, but also stubborn, impatient, and a touch on the impulsive side. She’s a lover of nineties R&B, is deeply passionate about food, and has more Harry Potter paraphernalia hidden away in her closet than she’ll ever admit.
Men come and go. Romantic relationships fizzle. Sisterhood is forever. Ella is loyal to the people she most cares about, and will go to Hell and back — a saying she now realizes could be taken literally — to see them safe and happy.
My cover designer well and truly outdid herself. Ella looks so fan-fucking-tastic on the cover of The Uprising, the upcoming full-length companion novel to The Hunt. I’m drooling over it, and I can’t wait to have my paperback in my greedy little hands!
You can now preorder The Uprising on Amazon for $2.99 — or wait, Kindle Unlimited cuties, and read the entire serial in a single sitting.
Or maybe over a weekend.
And emotionally draining? A bit.
Anyway, in the meantime, let us all bask in the gorgeousness that is this cover!
