Author: Ky Lehman

Genre: Paranormal Romance / Adventure



The revolutionary year following Serenay “Ren” Avalon’s eighteenth birthday could rival Clark Kent’s entire adolescence.

After her mother and her grandmother were killed in a car bomb explosion at the heart of their sleepy hillside town where nothing extraordinary usually happens, she discovers that her mother is actually alive and in hiding, her long lost father is a Father, and her best friend, who turns out was once an Archangel, has taken a gargantuan step back in his evolution to live on Earth with her for the past thirteen lifetimes. And besides being the only one in her immediate circle with a serious case of past life dementia, she learns that during her first lifetime, she was married to one of the greatest teachers history has ever known who is now the gorgeous lead singer of a hot new rock band taking the world by storm, and who is keen to meet up with her again in the twenty first century.

As Ren realizes that the powerful family name she bears also brings with it the promise of an unnatural death, she is reminded that it has always brought hope to people on both sides of the veil, human and Tor. As the world draws closer to being completely shrouded by the dark cloaks of her age-old enemies, the Bloodstones, she now, more than ever before, has to draw strength from her origins to protect her family and their ancient truth from this global force responsible for torturing and killing centuries of her ancestors.

As she struggles to unearth who she was, who she is, and who she chooses to be, as well as the expectations of her first mortal love and the heavenly love she has always guiltily denied, she has until midnight on the Solstice find a way to bring light to a compromised heart and to a world on the brink of perpetual darkness.

This first book in The Rosefire Trilogy by debut YA author, Ky Lehman, is a reminder of how the choices we make in the throes of love, loss, hope, and adversity are what makes the divine human, and the human divine.

Book Two of The Rosefire Trilogy, THE 13TH RISING, is coming in 2015.

Ren Avalon is anything but normal. Her mother and grandmother are killed in a car bomb explosion in the middle of their sleepy town where nothing out of the ordinary happens – usually. But then Ren finds out her mother is actually alive, but in hiding, her best friend used to be an archangel but gave up on all that to live on earth with her on earth. She doesn’t remember her past lives, but everyone else seems to. But when an ancient evil, Ren’s old enemies who hurt her ancestors for centuries, resurface, it’s up to her to stop them. But to do so, she has to figure out who she was, who she is, and who she wants to be.

This book packed so much, it’s almost impossible to summarize in a few centuries. Ren is pretty awesome. Despite all the weird things she hears, and everything that’s going on, she manages to keep her head above water and to bravely shoulder it all. The romance storyline was interesting too, and it added an extra dimension to the book.

Like I mentioned, it’s tough to describe how cool this book is. The writing is fun, the characters are amazing, the plot has so many twists and turns I barely could keep up with it, and overall, it’s a blast to read. Highly recommended to all fans of paranormal romance.
