Book 1: Teaching Between Midnight and Dawn: Arieanna's Legend;
Arieanna was pretty much happy with her life. Her students loved her, and she loved teaching; life was simple and uncomplicated. That's until she met Auron. Sent by an exclusive underground sect, Auron's there to protect the descendant of Ast at all cost. His number one purpose is to keep the supposed volume of Ast's magick from entering the hands of the wrong people, in spite of the fact it might cause his death.
Exiled two centuries ago from his Företag for insubordination and murder, Auron knows if Jimmy Mann gets his hands on that book, all hell will break lose. Centuries of war will spill onto a human battleground, and the causalities catastrophic. The governing
Council will do whatever it deems necessary to keep that from happening; even if it means taking out the descendant, Lycans, Warlocks, Witches, Shape-shifters and Vampires alike.
The hieroglyphs state she holds the key to the location of Ast's legendary book of magick; the only problem is, Arieanna doesn't know it yet!
Auron stood before the Council bound and defiant, eyes flashing. He knew they were angry already, especially having been called from Naples in the first place. One could not be sentenced unless the entire Council was there, because the joining houses in England, Scotland and Norway didn’t have that much pull alone.
The Council was the standing governing body for his kind, and had been for centuries now. They had a job to do, to keep what they… called order; and they didn’t care about casualties. Were it up to Lychelin his Ulfric, he would never have called any of them.
Auron barely moved as Methos’ battered body was thrown in front of him.
Did he care?
He’d gotten exactly what he’d deserved.
He looked up grinning as Hellos stood over Methos’ dead body. Hellos turned and punched Auron in the stomach, but he refused to double over. He wouldn’t give him the satisfaction.
“Yer here to be sentenced.” Merrick spat, and Auron’s grin widened even more.
Merrick was head council for Lycans in Keelik’s absence. Auron hated his pompous ass at first sight. He suddenly wondered where Keelik was.
“You think this funny boy?” Eveleen asked with an incredulous look on his face. He knew Auron had balls; it was clear from his days of training, but he didn’t think he would ever actually kill someone. It just wasn’t like Auron.
“We have the power to sentence ye to life or death boy; there isna anything funny about that!” Llewellyn yelled as he looked Auron in the face.
Auron frowned, but he still didn’t care; even if Lew was a God of old.
“Ye might think ye do.” Auron stated as he looked Llewellyn in the eyes, then kicked Methos’ frayed, bare chest, blood soaked body before the Council.
The members gasped, as Envois, one of the head Council’s guards came forward and punched Auron in the face.
Auron turned his head, glared at Envois, then spat the blood onto Methos’ body.
“Take him now!” Merrick yelled, and Auron grinned as a couple of the self-aggrandizing members actually tossed themselves. He was being sentenced to the Inquisitional, and he laughed at that.
Even though the Inquisition had ended ten years prior for the Spanish, as well as most of normal North America and Europe as a whole, the Council still exploited its methods as a means of torture for those who didn’t abide by their rules.
Magnus suddenly stood up.
“What will it profit ye to sentence him to the Inquisitional? He will merely waste awey for nothin.” He voiced as he looked at Auron frowning.
The Council members convened for several minutes, then Llewellyn cleared his throat.
“Fine, then he is to be banished from all. Clan, Företag, and all those he loves immediately.”
“But for how long ma lord?” Lychelin questioned as he looked at his best mate, then at Keelik his king as he walked into the room. Keelik frowned, then shook his head at Lychelin warning him.
Auron thought the sentence smacked of Merricks’ decision-making; especially with the banishment. They didn’t seem to care whether he was right in his killing of Methos or not.
“As long as he walks this earth.” Merrick replied with a self-satisfied grin, and Lychelin frowned.
Men came forward, took Auron and led him from the room. He looked back at both Lychelin and Magnus nodding.
First off wow!
I enjoyed this book.
I love the Egyptian myths! I love that the author broke rules, using more than one POV. The old language that the author uses to portray the accents of Auron and his Foretag members might be a little daunting for some, but I loved it...

The Pen & Muse
This is a book for those who want to graduate from Twilight. Anyone intrigued by the human -werewolf romance theme but who thinks there ought to be some actual sex scenes after all those smoldering glances at each other, has just found the right book...
***** Five Stars

This book is very well written and the author gives great detail and explanitation of the history sounding the plot and main chacters. She also gives acurate histroical infomation so if you like history, and supernatural, and romance then this is the book for you. As a lover of all things historical and romantic in nature, I loved reading this book.
