Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Dire Blood is a 90,000-word urban fantasy novel with flesh-hungry demons, unresolved sexual tension, and the total collapse of a society. Sounds fun, right? But this series shouldn't be read out of order. If you're new to the universe, please start with Death's Hand:  Reading Order:
  1. Death's Hand
  2. The Darkest Gate
  3. Dark Union
  4. Damnation Marked
  5. Dire Blood
  6. Paradise Damned (coming 2013)

About the Author

Hi everyone! My name is Sara, and I write urban fantasy novels as SM Reine. I collect swords, cat hair, and typewriters (which I do use for writing!). It's a good day when those three things have nothing to do with each other.   If you would like to know the instant my next book is available, you should enlist in my Army of Evil! We have a WICKED cool secret handshake, but you'll have to sign up to learn it. ;) Check it out --
A few fun facts about me:
- The more legs something has, the more terrifying it is to me. Centipedes are my biggest fear. Ladybugs are pushing it. Snakes have the ideal number of legs at zero.
- I prefer to eat my pizza with a fork. DEAL WITH IT.
- I just can't get into the Eleventh Doctor. Tenth Doctor for life! (David Tennant is my TV boyfriend.)

FYI: I am a super-prolific author of many series, most of which occur in the same universe. Characters and events overlap. It's sort of like how Iron Man and Captain America have their own movies, but sometimes get together for the Avengers. You can start with any of my series that look interesting to you, or you can read all of them!

I recommend reading The Descent Series, the Cain Chronicles, The Ascension Series, A Fistful of Daggers, War of the Alphas, and The Mage Craft Series for the "core" story of my books.

Happy reading!
