Darkness Fair (The Dark Cycle #2)
Release Date: February 2nd 2016
 
Summary from Goodreads:
 
Against the backdrop of an ancient battle between the forces of Light and the forces of Darkness, Aidan struggles to control the newly awakened powers that seem to be his only hope for rescuing his little sister Ava, who is now trapped somewhere beyond the Veil. As he gravitates to Kara, the beguiling and dangerously unstable girl who helped him realize his abilities, a terrible mistake of fate is revealed that points him back toward Rebecca, whose role is becoming more critical to the battle. And no matter what his heart wants, it might be too late to stop the pieces already in motion.
Without knowing the sacrifices that will be required of them, Aidan and his motley crew of friends—each with their own role to play—must face the demon threat head-on. They’re the only ones keeping the growing army of Darkness at bay, and if they fail, the future of humanity could be lost.

About C.J. Burright

Hey, I'm C.J. and I write stuff. Mostly fantasy and paranormal romance with a sprinkling of urban fantasy. Supernatural's my thing (the TV show too) and if you wanna go all Medieval I'm totally there, especially if there's a weapon involved. But I like guns too. I'm okay with violence, especially if it's deserved. And I'll choose the anti-hero every time.

  1. Again – a very interesting concept. I’m not sure what’s going on inside the minds of some of these authors, but, WOW!

    And whoever is designing some of these new book covers is remarkable! I love this one. It’s creepy but pretty at the same time. Very eye catching, even for someone like me who would generally steer far, far away from this type of book. This one captured my interest.

    Good find, Coleen.

    Here’s to a great 2016! (And stay away from the crazies down there in the southeastern tip of Oregon. What’s up with that nonsense?)

  2. I love the cover too! Luckily, I’m north of all that drama, but I’ve been in that area…definitely not the type of land I’d shoot a gun for, but what do I know? I kind of prefer trees. :) Best wishes for a fabulous 2016!
