**Sequel to THE BRIGHT AND THE LOST** A YA Historical Fantasy set in 1922 that mixes romance, magic and mystery!

Following the upsetting events that disrupted her London Season and changed her life forever, eighteen-year-old Vita is ready to spend a quiet winter at her country estate with her fiancé.
Newly wed to the handsome son of a Hong-Kong businessman, Vita's best friend Izzy can't quite believe all her dreams are finally coming true: she's escaped her ruined family and she's traded the horrid English weather for the Californian sunshine.
However, when an unexpected event disrupts Vita's routine at Weatherly, she has no choice but to leave behind her home and go in search of Holden - the stranger who turned her life upside down during the summer and knows the answers to all of her questions. Her quest leads her to New York, where new dangers lurk in the shadows of the city's skyscrapers and speakeasies.

From Hollywood to Manhattan, darkness soon engulfs the lives of both girls, who find themselves in a race against time to locate Holden, unravel the mysteries surrounding Vita - and avoid getting caught in a thousand-year-old secret war that threatens to destroy them all.

So,uh,I have this thing for incomplete stories. I mean,I don't generally like to read incomplete stories (because I'm not very patient😝),but there ARE some exceptions and this book is on EOF those. So,all I wanted to know is do you post once a week? And if so,what day do you post? @EMCastellan

You're the master at spinning intrigue and igniting curiosity. The very first line was so amazing. It's obvious how the rest of the novel will go.

Spotting a stranger on your property is one thing. A naked stranger.... totally unnerving!
