Book I of the Haunted Hollow
Mystery writer, Thea Maloney doesn’t hesitate when she’s offered the chance to see the doppelgänger of the man she loved and lost in 1969, even though it means traveling to 2147 to solve her greatest whodunit yet. Who broke time?
Thrust into a war-torn world of deadly ghosts, frightening magic, and ruptured timelines, Thea must determine if her lost love’s doppelgänger is guilty of shattering time. Yet the more she gets to know him, the more she discovers a man tormented by the sacrifices he’s made to keep the last of humanity safe. This brilliant, courageous man just might be the love of her life.
Orphaned by the Great Ghost War, the General’s body is as scarred as his soul and his heart is encased in iron. As he fights to keep his fragile colony of human refugees from imploding, he searches for a way to realign time. Thea Maloney is at best a distraction and at worst a spy. Falling in love was never part of the situation parameters – until the brave, warm-hearted time traveler proves her mettle and gets through all his defenses.
But love is a luxury in a world where any day could be humanity’s last. The General will sacrifice anything, even his life, to protect his people. What he doesn’t count on is Thea’s determination to save him, the colony, and time itself, even if she has to make deals with gods and devils to do it.
