Blurb/Synopsis:
Passions are erupting.
Cryptic alliances are forming.
Armies are gathering.
And the fabric between good and evil is slowly tearing open.

Time is running out on Elysa and The Order of the Anakim. A gathering gloom hangs heavy over their mystic realm as the demon hordes measure a final deathblow in their age-old struggle. Step by step, the demons murder, capture, and conjure their way to a realm unified by utter darkness. Their ruthless queen Ashtaroth, guided only by ambition and her voracious thirst for carnal pleasures, masterminds their rising tide of evil.
The Order must unify its splintering members to meet the defining challenge of their history... or pass forever into oblivion.
But in a world where magic, warfare, and sinister prophecies rule the day... in the night, vile enemies may seek the warmth in each other's touch.
At this vital juncture, Elysa's passion is lured by a wicked voice both arousing and terrifying. If the love between Elysa and Jarron is eternal, it will have to overcome pressures seen and unseen and withstand the crush of an all-out attack by demon forces.
Darkness is bleeding its treachery into our world and Elysa and The Order of the Anakim must find a way to combat the gathering doom.

Dark Skies will sweep legions of fantasy fiction fans into Elysa Amalfi's thrilling and treacherous world of the supernatural.  

Excerpt: 
"Hey, sleeping beauty!" Jarron blurted to rouse Caleb out of a nap.
Caleb was comfortably leaned back in a chair and kept his eyes closed, greeting Jarron with a standing salute of his middle finger. "Why are you bothering me?" Caleb asked, still pretending disinterest.
"Sirius know you're sleeping on the job?" Jarron quipped.
"I wasn't sleeping. I was meditating," He smiled, recalling the dream that was so rudely interrupted. "Besides, there's nothing going on. It's been quiet." Caleb finally opened his eyes to look at Jarron. "What have you been up to?"
"Training," Jarron answered with a smile. "Where's Sirius?"
"Level 3 with Anya. Says he's got more research to do." Caleb stretched his arms over his head and let out a hearty yawn. "He should have been back by now. What do you have him working on?"
"He went scouting with Anya and found some things that have him spooked."
Caleb propped his feet on the table and quickly looked at the monitors to make sure things were still quiet.
"Before Baja, the demon attacks were getting more intense. A lot more Great Demons showing up. New demons we haven't encountered before."
Caleb shrugged. "We get attacked all the time. We suffer injuries. It's part of the calling."
"There's something different. It's in the air. I can feel it."
"So what's Sirius looking into?" Caleb didn't want to admit he felt the same way. That he was worried. That even though there was little to no activity, there was change happening in the city. He couldn't explain it, but the thoughts from the city that he often picked up on were different, veiled somehow, like his reception was being interrupted.
Jarron walked over to the conference table and opened a folder with stacks of surveillance pictures inside. He chose one from the stack, handing a 5 x 7 picture to Caleb. A red circle clearly marked a dark-haired man standing in the middle of a crowd, his gaze seeming to look off in the distance. It was Will.
Caleb dropped his feet from the table and sat up in his seat. He stared at the picture. He had given his word to Isabel that he would not reveal his knowledge about Will's presence. She had good reason to hold off, but if Jarron and Sirius were already tailing the guy, it would only be a matter of time before they figured out who he was.

Cocktails & Characters Post: 
Cocktails & Characters (for the main characters)
Choose 5 or 6 of your characters tell us what their favorite cocktail is and why.

Jarron loves to wind down with a tall glass of gin and tonic with lots of ice. He normally runs hot and he finds the tonic water cooling and soothing--especially with the lime. Plus, it's simple and easy to make.
Ellie loves Pina Coladas. They remind her of her mom. They were here mom's favorite and one of the last drinks they shared during one of their travels… before her mom disappeared
Isabel is classy and sophisticated and being the leader of The Order, she reserves her drinking during special occasions. For those few special moments, Isabel indulges with a champagne cocktail, made with her favorite champagne from France--Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame.
Sirius is The Order's genius tech guy. He's a warrior too, but no one can handle the Control Room like he can. That means, lots of late nights gathering data and watching surveillance.  He loves coffee and when he needs a little more punch, it's as simple as adding Kahlua to his coffee and blasting the speakers with some deep house music and he can work all night.
Will loves a good sipping tequila. He used to live in Mexico and he would walk to a nearby market after work to buy some.  It didn't need anything else, no salt, no lime, just plain and he would savor it. That was what the storekeeper had told him. "Savor it. Let it coat your tongue." They would each enjoy a glass before the storekeeper would send him on his way.
Ash (Ashtaroth) enjoys blood orange and cranberry juice with vodka. Being a demon the alcohol really doesn't do much (if anything) for her, but she loves the deep ruby jewel tone of the drink. It reminds her of the rare and priceless bloodstones that come from her realm.
