Stormrise by Skye Knizley
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: 10/31/13 from Vamptasy Publishing



 Life isn't easy for Detective Raven Storm.  Her best friend was recently killed and dismembered, her latest case ended with her partner in intensive care, and her mother, the vampiric Mistress of the City is playing matchmaker… again.  The last thing she wants is another bizarre murder case with a partner she doesn't know.  But that is exactly what she gets when she is handed the enigmatic case of Nathan King, who was found in his car with a gaping hole where his stomach should be.

 Soon Raven is unraveling a mystery that leads her deep into the city's preternatural underworld, and into the arms of a sexy vampire she barely knows, but whose heart she seeks in the darkness…

 About the Author:

 Skye Knizley currently lives in Connecticut, USA, a small state of confusion where she spends most of her time writing urban fantasy and role-playing game adventures.  When she isn't setting quill to parchment Skye can be found hiking with her Siberian Husky Piper and her spirit guide Sheba, camping in a variety of state parks, motorcycling, ghost hunting or practicing and studying the healing arts of Wicca.  Which doesn't mean she dances naked under a full moon… as far as you know.  Besides, you need a stone circle for that and they knocked the last one down to build a six-lane bypass. Any questions?

All three novels in The Riverbend Trilogy in one digital boxed set. Riverbend: The Collection includes Riverbend, Rapid Water, and Waking Tide.
Nestled deep in Northwest Pennsylvania, in the thick forest of the Allegheny Mountains, is a quiet community named Kennerdell. Rich in both Native American and European settlement history with few inhabitants and a charming culture, growing up there was simple for Lena Woodruff.
But when grief stepped in and darkened her life-everything changed. After years of escape, Lena is forced to return home.
A web of mystery and danger that dates back to America’s earliest days quickly weaves around her and when a longtime friend, one who knows the tragedy that plagues Lena's heart, comes back into her life - things get complicated.
Grief darkens her thoughts while insecurity and self-doubt cause the lines between reality and imagination to blur. Just when she thinks she can't take anymore, a small glimmer of hope arises.
A sudden and unexpected need for love begins a conflict between self-doubt and the promise of something better.
Where strength can be weakness and vulnerability-an asset, the greatest danger that threatens Lena in Kennerdell may just be herself.
Will she be able to unfold the truth around this mystery or will it be easier to run away?
Love, danger, and history collide in Riverbend: The Collection

Six Books, one epic journey. Make their story your own.

Blurb - Blood and Light - Book 1:

Rue lives in the quiet little town of Calvary, Minnesota. It is nestled along the Great Lakes and surrounded in lush forests. A home, a safe place to be, or so she thought.

 Rue is planning her future and trying to navigate school and all other aspects of her life. Then her Mother falls ill. This sends Rue spiraling as she feels abandoned and without guidance. Attempting to make things better, Kai, Rue's only sibling, invites her to a party that will change the course of her life forever.

What would you do if you suddenly realized that your entire life had been a lie? That those who loved you the most had fabricated a world to protect you from a damning truth?


Blurb - Smoke and Mirrors - Book 2:

In book two the story takes a much darker turn. The rogue vampires are introduced as they try to destroy everything Rue holds dear. Rue is fighting her way back to reality after being abducted and forced to enter Valon, the ancient city to all vampires. Dark forces close in all around her as new enemies threaten to take everything she has ever known.

Epic battles rage, new enemies are uncovered, and the deepest of loves may have to be sacrificed for survival.


Blurb - Oil and Water - Book 3:

We join Rue as she wakes up in a foreign place. She does not remember who she, how she got there or why her heart aches so badly. She also has a very bad feeling that if she gets well, something terrible will come of it. She struggles to get a grip on reality as new friends try their best to earn her trust, but old enemies bring with them memories of a life she has all but forgotten.
Once again she finds herself in a battle of epic proportions, only this time her greatest enemy is her own mind and what it will accept as truth.
Will she allow herself to move forward? or, will she fade into memory once and for all?

Blurb - Clarity and Reason - Book 4:
As Rue accepts the tragedies that have befallen her family, she finds it almost impossible to allow love back into her heart. Every day she is maturing, coming closer to becoming a true protector. Closer to understanding her power and what she truly is. All the while some old enemies have now become strong allies, and some allies are not what they seemed to be.
Will she love again?
Will she take the final steps and accept her powers?
Or will she force them back into the books, locking them away forever?
Blurb - Grace and Beauty - Book 5:
In book five the story takes an even stranger turn for Rue and all of the characters you have grown to love.
Jonathan suffers with a loss of such great magnitude he may never recover from it. Rue and Joshua try to cope with an ever growing Gracie. Theo try's to distract himself from his growing need for Jonah.
Suddenly a darkness arises that forces them to become the family they were always destined to be.

Blurb - Hope and Faith  - Book 6:
Rue faces the biggest obstacle in her path yet...herself.
Her power is so immense that she has weaved a safety net for everyone around her. She has created a new reality to ignore the truth. It is so impenetrable that she may not even be able to destroy it.
Their one true enemy has discovered their location after being buried in the earth for decades. This new threat will join forces with anyone who harbors ill will towards Rue and her family.
Rue must wake up to reality and set things right.
Will she discover her true destiny in time?

Excerpt from Book 2 "Smoke and Mirrors":


"What the hell are you doing here?"
"Saving your ass." I said
"Yeah, looks like it." Josh said sarcastically.
"Oh shut up, we have to figure out how to get off this thing."
We slid a little and I squeezed my legs against his sides.
"Oh, this is sexy." he said with a growl.
"Oh my God! We are going to die here if you don't help." I yelled at him.
"Okay, okay...give me your blade." he said.
"Give it to me." He said as he lifted his hand. I placed it in his hand and he quickly sliced it across my palm.
"Ouch!" I said. He grinned at me as we slid a little more down the mirror.
"Let me drink your blood, I'm weak." he said to me in a low tone.
I pressed my hand against his mouth and I felt his lips on my skin. The sudden hum in my body was an unneeded distraction. I tightened my legs as I straddled him and he groaned. He pulled my hand away from his mouth, smiling up at me.
"Could you not do that?" he said.
"Do what?" I asked him.
"Press down on me like that."
"I can't help it!" I cried out as I tightly wrapped my arms around his neck , we started to slide down further and further.
He grunted as he tried his best to push himself back up with me on top of him.
"This is not the way I wanted our first time to be." he said with a laugh.
"Oh my God, shut up!" I yelled as he did nothing but aggravate me as usual.
