The betrayal that tore a family apart. Two brothers bent on destroying the other. A whole world on the brink of war.

Aiden has been through his second battle in the magical world of Eden. The victory is short lived and Aiden is sent racing toward his friends in the Capital. After being back in Eden with the Riders, he is eager to reunite with Wolf, Elisa and Logan, although he doesn’t realize just what he’s returning to. Surprises await him when he arrives in the Capital; his close-knit group of friends is slowly falling apart. On top of it all, another battle is just around the corner, one that will change everything.

Rain has made her choice, and now she is in some unknown fortress with the feared sorcerer, Aziz. She wants nothing more but to please him, but being his Queen isn’t as easy as she thought. While trying to learn sorcery, and dealing with Aziz’s advances, Rain is finding her new life a bit overwhelming. Just when she thought it couldn’t get worse, she discovers a secret of Aziz’s, and it is nothing she could have expected.

Rose has supported Callum throughout their journey, but now that the final battle is just around the corner she is faced with a hard reality. Everything she has gained with him could be taken away. Is she willing to live the rest of her life without him? Can she just stand by while he destroys everything, including himself? Will he ever be able to find peace? Will she?

In the third installment of the Eden Series fates will be decided, and the battle between brothers that has been a decade in the making will finally come to an end. Only one of them can be High King.
The battle starts now.

Interview with Wolf

In walks the handsome Wolf…
Hi, I’m Terri. Thanks for taking the time to meet with me today. I just have a couple of questions. I know you are busy saving the world.
*chuckles* I’m never too busy to talk with you, Terri.
1. I’m curious about your decision to join the King’s army. Was it just out of duty or out of service for your father? Or maybe by chance it has something to do with Elisa?

It is tradition that the Chief of the Riders sends his youngest son to join the King’s army. When the Riders and the High King first came to peace, they decided to do this as a show of their continued alliance. Being near Elisa was just an added bonus *winks*

2. Tell me, what were your original feelings about being betrothed to a girl who fights as well as any man?

I’m completely comfortable with my masculinity that it doesn’t bother me at all if Elisa can shoot an arrow further than me. *laughs* I’ve always been proud of her, even when I found out at a young age we were set to be married. She’s exactly the type of girl I would have wished for had I been able to choose.

3. Sorry to go all TMZ on you, but how does it feel that Elisa is now set to marry another man?

Nothing is set in stone.

4. And now you have to fight alongside that man. Is that going to be a problem?

Sure won’t be a problem for me. I can see him being intimidated being around someone as talented and good looking as yours truly, but that’s his problem, not mine.

5. Lastly, what do you want the readers to know about you?
That I’m truly amazing, but I’m sure they already know that. *laughs* Honestly, I just want them to realize that sometimes people say and do things they don’t necessarily mean. Everyone deserves a chance to set things right.

Thanks for coming and answering my questions. (I feel like I might go all cougar on him. Can anyone tell me if he’s legal…)
Oh, now here is the man. God, what a man. Callum walks in and passes Wolf on the way giving the boy what almost sounds like a growl. Damn that sexy.

Hi, I’m Terri…… (what am I supposed to say). Oh, sorry, hahaha, didn’t mean to stare. Let’s get to this.
First Congratulations, I understand Rose is expecting…(damn lucky girl).

Thank you, we’re both very excited.
Okay… so, I just have a few questions. I know your time is limited. (Girl pokes her head into the studio. Her eyes spear me with a look that broach no words. That must be Rose.)***clears throat****
1.     I know you probably get asked this a lot, but Jameson is your brother. Why fight him for the throne? Is power really worth betraying your only brother?

I’m fighting for what is mine. I wish it could have worked out differently, but reality is what it is. Jameson and I have always had our issues. I don’t feel like it is a betrayal. My father is the one who betrayed me in the end.

2.     To win, would you kill your brother? Do you expect he would kill you to win as well?

There can only be one High King, and my brother is certainly not just going to hand the crown over. There’s your answer.

3.     If you had to choose a civilian life with Rose or the throne without Rose, what would you choose?

A life without Rose is no life at all. I would give up everything and anything to be with her.

4.     You suffered a blow to your campaign with the loss of one of your leaders. He was like a brother to you. How do you move on?

I take it a day at a time. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him still. But life moves on, and I am forced to move with it. I can’t afford to mourn him. I can only continue with what we set in motion and hope I’m making him proud.

5.     In conclusion, what do you want the readers to know about you.

That I’m not bad or evil. I’m just trying to make things as they should be. And even though I’ve perhaps done things I’m not proud of, war is never easy or clean cut. We all do what we have to in order to come out the other side a victor. 
Well, thanks for coming. I do appreciate your time.
Thank you for having me, Terri. *smiles*

See if the author is available. I just have a few questions. And someone see if we can get Aiden and Elisa in here for an interview. Chop, chop…

Hi Janelle, this will be quick.
You are a lucky girl to work with such stunning gentlemen. I just have a few quick questions. I hope you will indulge me.
Of course!
1.     When should we expect the final installment in this amazing series?

I’m hoping for fall of this year. I’m just about done writing it, but there is a lot I need to do before I can publish it. I’m working on it!!

2.     What projects do you have in the works? Do you plan on releasing anything else this year?

Probably not this year, no. I’m focusing on ending this series before I start anything new. There are two stories fighting in my head to get on paper, but I haven’t decided which one I’ll start next. Probably the spinoff from Eden I’ve been slowly setting up since book two. I have no idea when it will be ready though.

3.     And what is the one thing you want people to know about you?

Hmmm I don’t know. I guess for the readers, I just want them to know that I’m friendly and approachable lol I don’t want anyone to feel like they can’t contact me or ask me questions. I always love to hear from my readers, so I hope they know that!  
Thanks again for stopping in for that impromptu interview. Have I told you lately I’m your number one fan???
Have I told you lately that I love you? ;) lol
Thanks again. Much love.
Thanks for having us!
