From Emerge: The Assignment
She has devoted her life to training with the elite Immortals of Soma.
For nearly a decade, Tessa St. James has sacrificed her life with her family to live, train and work behind the safety of Sterling Tower, waiting for the day when she will receive her first assignment.
With Soma at her back, her days of working the Amrita circuit are numbered. As soon as her trainer deems her ready for an assignment, Tess will be one step closer to a world-class career within the Soma agency.
When a casual flirtation at an anonymous Amrita event becomes not so anonymous, Tess is left with images of Dean McBrien to haunt her when she returns to life at Sterling Tower where nothing is as it seems. For the first time Tessa questions the world she lives in and is no longer able to look the other way when Soma’s actions don’t add up.
What will happen when Tessa finally realizes her position at Soma isn’t all she dreamed it would be?
Fans of Emerge will not want to miss the explosive ending when Allie and Tessa's stories collide. Get a taste of what's coming next for Allie in Emerge: The Assignment.
From Emerge: The Awakening (book 1)
Allie has always thought of herself as a loner—until she moves to a new town and finds herself caught up in a dangerous world of immortality and power she never knew existed.
Surrounded by strange new friends and even stranger circumstances, the dark void of her past casts an ominous cloud over Allie’s new life. Sparks fly between Allie and Aidan as she finds herself drawn to him and his friends in ways she can’t explain.
As Allie approaches her sixteenth birthday, a latent Immortal power awakens deep inside her. She must learn to adapt to her power before it overwhelms her. But she’s sixteen years behind her peers, and as one of the most powerful Immortals of her generation, she has precious little time to catch up.
As her first gifts begin to emerge, Allie finds her footing, but she still feels like the normal mortal girl she always thought she was.
But there is nothing normal about Allie Carmichael.
Allie’s past harbors dark secrets she can't even fathom. Secrets that could not only change her life, but the lives of everyone around her.
