As a young nursing student, Selene Evans has a bright future ahead of her, but things take a radical turn when a vampire abducts her and forces her to drink his blood. The heightened senses, crazy emotions, and cravings pale in comparison to the drive of her newfound lust.
Not only does she have feelings for her kidnapper, the sire bond also forces her to obey his every command. To their mutual satisfaction, she craves to explore the fine line between pleasure and pain with him, and in the midst of it all, she begins to lose her sense of self.
Could her feelings for him just be a product of the sire bond? Only time spent away from his influence will tell, but there are forces so dark out there, they make her demon look like an angel in disguise.
Welcome to Blackbird, a small Midwest town with a big paranormal problem.
As an Observer, Seth is tasked with identifying lost souls. An unenviable job under normal circumstances, but the situation takes a turn for the worse when Blackbird’s Guardian calls it quits. With no one to take her place, Seth finds himself partnered with Desmond, a powerful and intimidating Warrior, who sees the downtrodden Observer as a liability.
Desmond’s fears are all but validated when a magical disturbance draws even more Discordant creatures to the area, including a deadly femme fatale from Seth’s past, and Bogie, a demon with a heart of gold and a tenuous grasp on the English language.
To save Blackbird (and eventually the world), the agents must set aside their differences and team up with a ragtag group of local mystics. Together, they might win the day, or they just might make things a whole lot worse.

On the night of her twenty-ninth birthday, Edrea is brutally murdered. She awakens in her San Francisco studio as a bloodthirsty vampire with no memory of her death. Now undead and with newfound immortal powers, she fights to hold onto her humanity in the face of great darkness. In a seemingly interconnected reality, her guilt-stricken mortal sister, Rena, embarks on a dangerous quest in search of Edrea, whom is believed is merely “missing.”
As they follow their individual roads through life and the un-death, Edrea and Rena learn not only that their sisterly bond is stronger than they thought, but also that their family shares a dark secret that connects both of them to a mysterious quantum world.
This not so ordinary vampire tale will draw you into a journey of love, loss and self-discovery, and intrigue you with a scientific and philosophical theme that will keep you wondering until the end … and maybe even after that.
“Reise delivers a horror filled with satisfying moments of drama and suspense, as well as a sisterly bond that elevates the story to another level … the truth found in the relationship between the two sisters, a sanctuary from the darkness that surrounds them and a glimpse of the beauty that we find in trust, in acceptance, in each other.” –IndieReader
“Poetic and melancholic, the novel is a cross between True Blood and Interview with the Vampire. This is a coming-of-age vampire tale complete with mystery, romance and suspense that will surely entertain fans of the genre.” –The US Review Of Books
“From the dank and rugged northern California coastline to the vibrant San Francisco club scene, Leah Reise has created a vibrant and surrealistic world and populated it with relatable characters. Her rookie novel features a sisterly love story, darkly passionate vampires, and rivalries between ancient blood thirsty factions. Freshly undead, Edrea is smart, sexy, and fiercely protective of her baby sister, a girl who looks for and finds trouble behind every iron gate.” –City To Country Magazine
“What I love about this story, first, is the author’s ability with description. Reise has a gift for painting the scene without over-telling, and still offering enough detail to allow for vivid imagery. … second … that much of it takes place in Sonoma County locations. Reise doesn’t disappoint, taking her characters to Bodega Bay and Santa Rosa, though much of the story is set in San Francisco. … third … how large a role family plays in The Beauty in Darkness. There are definite themes that take place from both Edrea’s old and new life, which I’ll let you find out on your own to avoid any spoilers. All in all, I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys supernatural and vampire fantasy.” –The Press Democrat
Bryn Reyes is a real life sleeping beauty. Afflicted with Klein-Levin Syndrome, she suffers episodes of prolonged sleep that steal weeks, and sometimes even months, from her life. But unlike most KLS patients, she doesn’t spend each episode in a catatonic state or wake up with no recollection of the time she’s missed. Instead, Bryn spends half her life in an alternate reality made up of her memories. For Bryn, the past is a place, until one day a boy she’s never met before washes up on the illusory beach of her dreams with no memory of who he is.
But the appearance of this strange boy isn’t the only thing that’s changed. Bryn’s symptoms are worsening, her body weakening as she’s plagued by hallucinations even while awake. Her only hope of finding a cure is to undergo experimental treatment created by a German specialist. But when Dr. Banz reveals that he knows more about her strange symptoms than he originally let on, Bryn learns that the boy in her head might actually be the key to understanding what’s happening to her, and worse, that if she doesn’t find out his identity before it’s too late, they both may not survive.

She’s forgotten her past. Too bad her past won’t return the favor.
Ursula can’t remember a single thing from before three years ago, so she has to keep her life simple. All she wants is to earn enough money for rent–and maybe a bit left over for a new pair of boots.
But on her eighteenth birthday, all hell breaks loose… quite literally… when a hellhound shifter shows up in her kitchen. Kester’s lethally gorgeous, and he’s come with a terrifying message: Ursula owes her soul to a demon.
No one seems to care that she doesn’t remember striking that deal.
Thrust into the middle of a war between the gods of fire and night, Ursula fights her way across New York–and through the fae realm–to survive. Along the way, she must reclaim her magical knowledge and her long-forgotten skills with the blade if she wants to escape eternal damnation.
Born into a dying kingdom, Princess Elena of Garius is certain her intelligence and compassion would make her a better ruler than Prince Leonardo, the man her father insists she marry to rule in her stead… a man rumored to have a cruel streak as deep as his father’s pockets.
As Elena tries to find a way to protect herself and her kingdom, she learns she is the key to the rebirth of magic into the Kingdom of Light. And her five guards have been preordained to help her—with the touch of their bodies to hers.
Magic has been dead so long that most people believe it’s a myth. But there’s no denying the ache in Elena’s chest or the feelings that consume her whenever her guards are near. Wicked feelings no princess should feel for one man, let alone five.
The cure for this strange madness is days away. And while her guards have sworn to protect her—even to their deaths—Prince Leonardo isn’t so quick to let her go. Not when he believes Elena is the mother of magic.
It starts with a school shooting.
It ends with the return of an evil as ancient as the skeleton of the universe.
In the middle, normal garden-variety people must figure out how to live their everyday lives—how to survive!—after they discover that all those childhood horror stories … well, most of them are true.
When the hot call comes over the radio: “Code Red! Active shooter at Carlisle Elementary School,” Police Sergeant Jack Carpenter has only one job: find the gunman; take him out. Carpenter rushes into the school, fully armed and focused on cold, hard reality. But what happens to him in the next few hours shatters the world as he has always known it. And in the next three days, everything Jack Carpenter believes about himself, about life and reality, about good and evil and the whole nature of the universe will be challenged.
Can it possibly be true—seriously?—that invisible monsters prowl among us every day?
That there exists in the real world a winged creature more horrifying than any Hollywood-animated, computer-generated, mechanical unreality?
And that the single-minded mission of that beast—a creation of absolute, soul-less evil—is to kill Jack Carpenter?
In this first book in The Knowing Trilogy, award winning journalist and bestselling suspense and thriller author Ninie Hammon begins a sprawling tale of spiritual warfare that spans a quarter of a century. If you enjoy terrifying dark psychic suspense coupled with characters who feel like family, The Knowing will open up for you a world you absolutely do not want to believe is real. But it is.
