Scorched Earth by K. de Long
He took everything from her: her family, her homeland, and her future. She'd give anything to forget him.
Two days ago Eren Tristram made his way back into Abeni’s life- if only for the designated week preceding his execution.
With her performances to arrange and exhausting magical acts to perform, the last place her mind should be is on her first love, the man who took everything from her, led her down a path that saw her exiled from family and homeland- yet kept her heart when he abandoned her.
With political frictions blooming, the cause is bigger than the pain of a broken heart, and Abeni’s old idealism forbids her to let Eren die with his half-finished final act undone: a gateway to funnel refugees and political dissidents to safety.
The magic will force them closer together, every ritual an act of treason against her hosts… and her heart.
Scorched Earth is the second instalment of a PNR mini-series by NYT bestseller K. de Long within the Lick of Fire multi-author series. It contains mature content and a cliffhanger ending. Eren and Abeni’s story will continue in the final instalment, Ashes to Ashes.
