Recently published by Freeze Time Media and written by River Eno, The Hollow is the second book in the Anastasia Evolution Series. Anastasia “Andru” Weber was always different. From the day she was born, strong faerie magik filled her blood and soul. She tried to ignore it, to not let the power inside her body rule her every action. She tried to live a normal life as a military officer, but paranormal things have a way of creeping up on you when you’re surrounded by ancient, sometimes volatile vampires. One of those scary vampires is her partner, Romeo, who is jealous, territorial, and seems to want to distract her eyes away from his seducing father, General Galen.
However, in life, you accept the bad with the good. Andru has true friends that walk by her side. Some, like her best friend, Alivia, help protect her secrets. Some, like Dacon, her ex-boyfriend, let her know when she’s out of line. To her credit, she was promoted to captain the same month she turned thirty, prompting Alivia to throw her a birthday bash she wouldn’t soon forget. One reason was because the King of Genesis was there, watching her every move. Also, General Galen practically forced himself on her, a situation that left her anxiety-ridden but enjoying it all the same. But mostly, Andru wouldn’t forget that night because terrorists bombed the building the party was in — and an unknown criminal knocked her senseless.
When life takes a turn, Andru sneaks off to see her faerie family, hoping to bring balance back to her magik. But when her partner is abducted during a routine military operation, the deadly situation might suggest a friendly foe rather than guerrilla extremists.
And still, that hidden earth magik haunts Andru. It drives her forward, pushing her, and those closest to her, into mortally dangerous situations. When she comes face to face with a demon, the magik trapped inside refuses to stay hidden any longer. Will the very fabric of Anastasia’s life, and all of those standing with her, be forever changed?
