Let's get right to it...

AGGGHHHHH! Isn't it beautifully bad ass?

If you've read Grasping at Eternity, and read the sneak peek at the end of the book, then you kinda have an idea of what Taking Back Forever is about. Or, you may have figured it out based off the cover alone. Either way, I'm so excited to show off the cover for Taking Back Forever.

The amazing and talented Alexandra Shostak had done an amazingly-spectacularly-magnificent job on the covers for The Kindrily series. Tomorrow (Thursday) she will be writing a special post and sharing the ins and outs of how the Taking Back Forever cover came to be.

But for now, here's a little bit about the story itself...

 Forever is worth the fight.

Maryah erased all memory of her past lives, but she couldn’t erase her soul mate Nathan, or his undying love. Now, Maryah and Nathan have a second chance at a future together, but first Maryah must remember the person she used to be and embrace her supernatural gifts—more than one kindrily member’s life depends on it.

Maryah’s power is Harmony’s best hope of finding her kidnapped soul mate, Gregory. But Harmony isn’t big on asking anyone for help, and she’s tired of waiting, so she’s taking matters into her own hands. Heaven help anyone who stands in her way. 

I'm scheduled to release Taking Back Forever this spring. I'm hoping to send out ARCs and review copies in February or March. In the meantime, please leave a comment below and let us know what you think of the cover.

Haven't read Grasping at Eternity yet?  Do you like soul mates and superpowers? Then go read it!
"Brilliantly written! This epic love story had me turning pages late into the night. Truly one of the best books I've read in a very very long time."
