Meet Lifeblood!
 
 
"My Firstlife is over, but my Everlife is only now beginning." 

With her last living breath, Tenley "Ten" Lockwood made her choice and picked her realm in the Everlife. Now, as the war between  Troika and Myriad rages, she must face the consequences. 

Because Ten possesses a rare supernatural ability to absorb and share light, the Powers That Be have the highest expectations for her future—and the enemy wants her neutralized. Fighting to save her Secondlife, she must learn about her realm from the ground up while launching her first mission: convincing a select group of humans to join her side before they die. No pressure, right?  

But Ten's competition is Killian, the boy she can't forget—the one who gave up everything for her happiness. He has only one shot at redemption: beating Ten at a game she's never even played. As their throw-downs heat up, so do their undeniable feelings, and soon, Ten will have to make another choice. Love…or victory.
 
Excerpt:
 

From: L_N_3/19.1.1
To: M_C_4/2.17.12 Subject: Tenley Lockwood

TROIKA

__________

You begged to take over Miss Lockwood’s case, Madame Cordell, and vowed to always—always!—keep me updated on her progress. Since she died by poisoned spear, I have yet to receive a single report. Update me. Now!

Light Brings Sight! General Levi Nanne

TROIKA

__________

From: M_C_4/2.17.12
To: L_N_3/19.1.1
Subject: Your patience and trust humble me

My apologies for making you wait a whole 6.8 seconds for another report, sir. If you haven’t noticed, my team is a little busy slaughtering Myriadian soldiers—and getting slaughtered in the process. By the way, Archer Prince is dead. Not that you asked. I’ve lost track of Tenley and suspect Myriad is hiding her within their shadows. I’m doing my best to locate her, sir.

Light Brings Sight!maybe consider using yours? Madame Meredith Cordell

TROIKA

__________

From: L_N_3/19.1.1
To: M_C_4/2.17.12
Subject: Brrring! Brrring! This is your wake-up call

Find her!
And you had better not be crying for Archer. He lived a good life and died a warrior’s

death. His name has been added to the Book of New Life, and he’s a candidate for the Resurrection. You just might see him again—and soon!

TROIKA

__________

From: M_C_4/2.17.12
To: L_N_3/19.1.1
Subject: Please leave a message at the beep

When has “might” ever been good enough?
****

From: Z_C_4/23.43.2 To: R_O_3/2.17.12 Subject: The Conduit

MYRIAD

__________

It’s certain. Miss Lockwood has made covenant with Troika. Foolish Madame Bennett! She made our realm appear immoral and foul, so who can blame the girl? My question is, does Killian Flynn protect Miss Lockwood for our benefit—or theirs?

How would you like me to proceed?

Might Equals Right! Sir Zhi Chen

From: R_O_3/2.17.12 To: Z_C_4/23.43.2 Subject: I’m insulted

MYRIAD

__________

You’re right. Madame Pearl Bennett got us into this mess, but Killian Flynn will get us out of it. I assure you, his every action is intentional and for our greater good. His mission is critical.

Tell no one. The fewer people who know, the less likely the information will spread Let today’s battle play out as it must.

All is not lost where Tenley Lockwood is concerned. Killian is working his magic to ensure she single-handedly wins the war—for us. Let him do what he needs to do. He knows what’s at stake, and he won’t let us down. He never has before.

Might Equals Right! General Rosalind Oriana
