Hey, two posts in one week! I’m so excited to be back blogging in time for this cover reveal. Playing With Darkness is the second companion novella to Susan Illene’s Sensor series. It takes place after the events of the third book, Darkness Divides, so you definitely want to pick that one up. I finished reading it earlier this week and it was a fabulous installment. I’m looking forward to this novella, mainly because—shape-shifting fae kitty! Who is awesomely featured on this spectacular cover…
Aren’t those colors striking? I’d love a notebook of this cover. Watch for Playing With Darkness coming May 31st!
There’s no avoiding it. Melena must keep her promise to return the fae device that opens the portal to Purgatory. Except there’s one problem—Kerbasi. How can she go when she has one of heaven’s minions practically attached to her hip? One who will strike fear in the hearts of the fae the moment they realize who he is.
When her shape-shifter cat suddenly gets sick, she can’t delay the trip any longer. Only the fae can help get Sable healthy again. And if Kerbasi tries to cause any trouble while they are there, she’ll just have to find creative ways to keep him in line.
Instead of making the traditional post high school move and attending college, Susan joined the U.S. Army. She spent her eighteenth birthday in the gas chamber…an experience she is sure is best left for criminals. For eleven years she served first as a human resources specialist and later as an Arabic linguist (mostly in Airborne units). Though all her duty assignments were stateside, she did make two deployments to Iraq where her language skills were put to regular use.
After leaving the service in 2009, Susan returned to school at the University of Oklahoma to study history with a focus on the Middle East. She no longer finds many opportunities to test her fighting abilities in real life, unless her husband is demanding she cook him a real meal, but she’s found a new outlet in writing urban fantasy heroines who can.
