I am faced with an impossible choice: destroy the world of my birth or the world I call home?
I was minding my own business, giving Hedge Antilles—my laurel hedge big enough to warrant its own name—a much-needed trim when bam! Vampire! (Bampire?) At least that’s what he called himself, and he did have pointy fangs, try to bite my neck, and died with a stake to the heart. He also called me a fairy before he bit it—literally and figuratively.
Now I’m in a race I don’t quite understand to open gates I’m not entirely sure should be opened to save the Fae Realm, the home I don’t remember. Finn—up until now, my best friend—is guiding me on this quest, but we both need some personal growth if we’re gonna make things work. He needs to get over the hope that I’ll ever be in love with him, and I need to get over the fact that he deliberately infiltrated my life by order of my absent Fae father.
Not everything on this whirlwind quest is bad, though—Isaac, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome werewolf, is along for the ride (that’s what she said…). There are too many secrets to sort out, and I feel like I’m the only one playing this thing straight.
Everyone seems to think I’m going to shatter this world, but only some believe I’ll save it. Am I trusting the right people, or will my faith in my friends be the reason I destroy it all?
THE CARDINAL GATE is the first book in the Eleanor Morgan novels, a complete 7-book contemporary fantasy series. If you love (or love to hate) the fae, shifters, witches, vampires, a little steam, a sprinkling of puns, and a lot of adventure, Eleanor Morgan is the woman for you.
Raj once swore he’d pay any price to recover the sword he’d first carried over a thousand years ago, but that was before he knew it might cost him Eleanor’s love.
Eleanor continues to battle the enemies who would see the gateways closed forever, but no treacherous elves or double-dealing shifters are quite as dangerous as the seductive vampire Raj. The chill that threatens to send her dragon half into hibernation does nothing to bank the fires of her desire for Raj—but Florence’s cryptic warning is keeping her from succumbing to his charms.
Raj is not what he seems and he is hiding something far darker than Eleanor ever imagined. When the truth is revealed will she be able to forgive him or will it kill her first?
A year of travel, countless battles, betrayal, love, and loss—all lead to the final gate, the last sacrifice, and the end of the world as we know it.
Eleanor has only two gates to open to restart traffic between Earth and the Fae Plane, and the only certainty is that either way, the world will change. For the first time, humans are the biggest threat to Eleanor. The government is descending into chaos and groups of humans are determined to eradicate the supernatural scourge they believe is destroying their world.
From the desert southwest back to the place it all began, old friends will reunite, old enemies will create chaos, and myths will walk the earth again.
An ancient prophecy comes to fruition through Raj's Ruby Blade, and the only question that remains is who will wield it as the world breaks?
