Daniel is ex-special ops, but how can he protect her from a killer that is not flesh and blood?

Rachel Sommers and her two best friends don’t believe anything will happen when they sneak onto a haunted shipwreck in the middle of the night. Why would they? Ghosts don’t actually exist… right?

But Rachel and her friends disturb something that night. Something demonic. Something that lured Rachel to the ship. And now one of her friends is dead, the other is missing, and Rachel’s memory of the night is gone. There’s only one thing she knows for sure: whatever killed her friend has followed her home.

Over a century ago, an act of bitter jealousy and revenge tainted a crystal ball with an unstoppable evil. And when the deadly object eerily turns up in her bedroom, Rachel’s nightmare really begins.

Can Daniel save the woman he loves, or is Rachel about to make the ultimate sacrifice to save them all?

Ex-Special Forces detective Daniel Smith takes the case the moment Rachel’s name appears on his screen. Rachel is the only woman he’s ever loved, but despite their explosive chemistry, she’s determined to keep him at a distance.

With Rachel’s life on the line, the disturbing truth about her ancestry and the possessed object she has inherited must be uncovered. But is it already too late? Daniel will risk everything to save the woman he loves, but how can he win this lethal game of cat and mouse against a killer that is not flesh and blood?

Daniel is Ex-Special Ops, but how can he protect her from a killer that’s not flesh and blood?



“Once again Ms Daniels wove her magic stories into my life. I laughed, I cried, I cheered, and didn’t want the story to end! Great reading with a supernatural twist!”

When she finds a way to stop him he tries to kill her but you will be auprised at who saves her. This book brought me to tears of sadness and joy. So be prepared as that ending was emotional.

Kimmie Sue’s Book Review, 5 Stars

“This book had me on the edge of my seat. Daniel is to die for, and Rachel is everything you could want in a heroine. The scry pushed the tension to the limits, and the romance was believable and delectable at the same time. Wonderful writing. I will definitely have to read more of Athena Daniels. I’m very glad I gave her a go.”
