"You think maybe Breanne is somewhere else, now, deciding whether it's worth it to come back?"
"It's possible," Ashe said, rubbing his forehead. He hadn't had a headache this bad in almost a decade. He'd had this one for four days.
"She may not want to stay here if she wakes up," Trajan sounded troubled.
"I know. Sometimes I want to kick my own ass over that."
"I'll do it for you."
"Look, you're still the better fighter, so no, thanks," Ashe held up a hand.
***** The rogue gods, sure that the Mighty Heart is dead, have stepped up their game.
Bill, Hank and the others are concentrating on tracking a human known to have ties with the rogues—Vernon Clark.
Vernon has manipulated many things in the past from his website. He was the first to claim that Breanne was a lie created by Rome Enterprises to destroy Joyce Christian's reputation after her death. He has many nefarious contacts, and not just with rogue gods and Sirenali.
Hoping to get information and locations on the enemy from their quarry, Bill and his team travel to New Mexico, where Vernon Clark was last seen. Their search for the enemy then leads to other states, where things are beginning to heat up.
Wildrif, the quarter-blood Elemaiyan seer, has become an unreliable source of information as he can't see past shields surrounding Bill's group, so Acrimus and Calhoun bring in another seer—one so dangerous even those who resurrect him fail to understand their peril.
BIOGRAPHY Reinvention/Reincarnation. Those words describe Connie best. She has worked as a janitor, a waitress, a mower of lawns and house cleaner, a clerk, secretary, teacher, bookseller and (finally) an author. The last occupation is the best one, because she sees it as a labor of love and therefore no labor at all.
Connie has lived in Oklahoma all her life, with brief forays into other states for visits. She and her husband have been married for more years than she prefers to tell and together they have one son.
After earning an MFA in Film Production and Animation from the University of Oklahoma, Connie taught courses in those subjects for a few years before taking a job as a manager for Borders. When she left the company in 2007, she fully intended to find a desk job somewhere. She found the job. And the desk. At home, writing.
