Talk of war has reached Lakewood and Derrick is busy day and night crafting weapons and armor for his father, which keeps him from thinking of Jeslyn and how she left. When Lucy shows up at his shop, smirking, and talking about Jeslyn’s mysterious disappearance, he’s ready to slice off her head; instead, he decides to see if her claims about Jeslyn and Lucino vanishing together are true.

As Derrick and Lucy embark on a hunt to find Jeslyn and Lucino, their hatred will turn into mutual acceptance as the trail will lead them into Nomad’s land and straight into war.

DEADLY DANCE is a novelette that takes place between Book 2 & Book 3 of The Daath Chronicles.


I read this one before the first two in the series. I know I shouldn't have, but the cover is gorgeous, and I was dying to dive into the pages.

I did read the blurbs on the first two books to get a general gist of the plot, and that was enough to get this story going. The characters are so well written that I had no trouble relating to them from the first pages on. The tension is tight between Lucy and Derrick. Really tight. And it's exactly this which makes their exchanges and short adventure a delight. 

There's action, danger, and wonderful glimpses into the strange world. Even though this is a short story (I finished it in less than an hour), I was caught up and a little disappointed that it ended so soon. 

I can't wait to see what book 3 will bring. Well, after I go back and read the first two. And I'll definitely do that.

And here she is. . .

Eliza graduated from Dowling College with a BS in Visual Communications. When she’s not arguing with excel at her day job, or playing Dragon Age 2, again, she’s writing.

Her YA stories hold a bit of the fantastical and there’s always a hot romance. She resides on Long Island with her husband, two kids and one very snuggly pit bull.
