Release Date: 11/26/14

Summary from Goodreads:
It begins again! Skylee Porter thinks the worst is over. She has faced her greatest fear, the monstrous black-eyed Brinfrost and survived with the help of Chrism, her shape-shifting sister. Sky even had the courage to finally admit her true feelings to Will.

But something has changed. The three people she trusts the most are acting strange. Will seems distant. Her talkative sister has clammed up. Even Airon is keeping secrets.

Soon, Sky discovers the leaders of the Primortus have plans for her. Then, to her dismay, they threaten to take away her magical book. The Humusara, the very thing that tethers her to the world she so desperately wants to protect. And now, the earth is trembling again. Could there be another Day of Disaster?

Dark powers are at work. Two prophecies loom on the horizon. One declares she’s the hope of humankind. While the other proclaims she’ll destroy us all.

Sky’s destiny awaits her…

Excerpt
On Cable Street a shrill siren echoed through the air accompanied by the sound of blaring car alarms. Clambering in all directions were throngs of frightened pedestrians, but two figures seemed to be in no hurry at all.

“Fools,” scoffed the taller man as he strode away from Te Papa museum without a backward glance. He darted his coal black eyes around at the crowd. “Go ahead—run,” he said in a tone void of any human kindness. “There’s nowhere to hide.”

Brinfrost’s long frame was clad in a tattered janitor’s uniform coated in dust, making him appear as if he had been through a sand storm. His encounter with the Second Born had not gone as planned.

“Skylee Porter will pay for this,” he snarled. He glanced down at the bloody cloth around his snake-bitten wrist. “And her slithering Shifter.”

Shuffling along meekly in his wake was his servant, Blaze. “Yes s-sir, they’ll p-pay,” he stuttered.

The odd looking redhead also wore dust-covered overalls, which stretched too tautly across his squat, muscular frame. He kept his eyes glued on his Master, his face filled with fear, submission, and a hint of defiance. Breathing in quick shallow bursts, he struggled to keep up as he looked down at his palms, which glowed reddish orange.

The servant didn’t understand how his power over fire worked or for that matter where it came from, but only moments ago, he had used it to heat the steel beams and pull his Master free.

Brinfrost quickened his step. “So, they’ll pay?”

Blaze nodded.

“Well, who should pay for that debacle at the museum?”
 
The servant nervously cleared his throat. “I—I don’t—w-we got away and—”

“And why don’t I have the Elementum?” interrupted Brinfrost. “Was this part of my plan?” He waved his swollen arm at him.

Blaze continued nodding in confusion.

Brinfrost came to a halt. “No!” he spat out, looking in disgust at the servant, who stopped and switched to vigorously shaking his head.

“F-forgive m-me,” he pleaded, sounding more panicked than ever. “I—I w-will do as you—”

“Shut up!” ordered Brinfrost, turning and stalking off.

The servant clamped his mouth shut and dutifully followed him. It was not yet dark, but their shadows lengthened as they continued down the sidewalk.

About the Authors
J.L. Bond and Val Richards have much more in common than writing.  They are both Army brats, grew up in the hills of Tennessee, attended the same college and worked the same first job. They share an obsession for Doctor Who, Harry Potter, and have an enduring love for all things Tolkien. Since they can’t live in Middle Earth, the call of the ocean eventually pulled them to Florida where, together, they form the nearly fearless writing duo of THE PRIMORTUS CHRONICLES.


Their debut novel, ELEVENTH ELEMENTUM; Book 1, was released in 2012 to excellent reviews. The second book in the trilogy, HOLLOWED HUMUSARA launched in the fall of 2014. J.L. and Val are currently working on Plagued Primortus, the final book in the series…when they aren’t daydreaming of joining a certain wizardy trio for a ride in the TARDIS to Rivendell.

  1. I really like the cover to this book, even more than the first one! It also sounds like after all the main character goes through in the first book, her journey doesn't end there. I wonder what kept her friends so distant though!
