Two thousand and eleven years after the birth of the Failed One, the Witching Pen will be
made manifest on Earth by the Great Shanka Witch of the Old Scrolls. By her hand, the Earth will rumble and shatter, and all dimensions will bleed into one.

The true purpose of the Witching Pen has been revealed, and it must be destroyed before an apocalyptic prophecy comes true. There's just one problem -- the Pen is indestructible.

As everyone searches for much needed answers, Elena lays down plans for a radical mission to save her mother from the Shanka's shadow world.

Meanwhile, Mary has finally discovered who she really is, and what that means for the human race.

What Mary doesn't know, is that Gwain has been searching for her for over ten thousand years, and had lost all hope of finding her. Now that he has her, he's faced with an impossible choice: does he save the woman who altered his very existence, or does he sacrifice her to save mankind?
Book One: The Witching Pen - Review
Book Two: The Sands of Time - Review 

The Demon Bride was an amazing book.  Mary has been sucked through a strange portal and Gwain took off after her without consulting with anyone.  He senses that she is something more that what she seems and is shocked to discover who she really is.

We get to meet a lot of new big players in this one - Abbadon, Archangel Michael, and some of the mysterious fae themselves.  As prophecies begin to unfold and new ones are brought to life, the entire world as we know it is in for quite the wake up call - and Mary and Gwain seem to be at the heart of it all.  Their romance is an interesting one that has been unfolding for far longer than anyone realizes.  Their history and future is one of the most romantic things I've ever seen.  And at the end I wanted to scream, cry, and cheer for them.

We can't forget about Elena and Karl, and Amy and Pueblo though.  They all have an important part in the story as well.  Amy has been feeling out of sorts since she was returned, and the reasons why are exciting and a little disconcerting.  Her part of the story plays almost as important a role as our main characters.

Karl and Elena are on a mission to save Elena's mother from the Shanka realm.  This is a more minor part of the story, but triggers many of the other events.  I loved how Dianna Hardy keeps all the players in active roles throughout each book.  We never have to really say good-bye to them at the end.  There is a spin-off that is more of an urban fantasy that I just started, and I'm hoping that it can live up to the standard this book just set.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
