Released on December 4, 2018, Ever the Brave by Erin Summerhill is the riveting sequel to the romantic fantasy adventure Ever the Hunted. It promises to appeal audiences who enjoy fantasy, themes of good versus evil, and romantic conflicts.
After saving King Aodren with her newfound Channeler powers, Britta dreams of a peaceful life in her childhood home with Cohen. But her powers created an accidental tether between Britta and Aodren, a bond she cannot sever that is pulling her away from the man she loves. Cohen’s only desire is to protect Britta from harm. But how can he do that when his hunt for the Channeler responsible for controlling the king prevents him from staying by Britta’s side? Aodren has spent a year in the thrall of a manipulative Channeler and must now focus on leading Malam out of the darkness, even though he can’t stop thinking about Britta and the bond that draws them together. As Britta, Cohen, and Aodren face the sinister forces that threaten Malam from within and without, Britta learns that there are those who would use her power for evil designs. If she cannot find a way to harness her magical ability, her life-as well as her country-may be lost. The stakes are higher than ever as Britta fights to protect her kingdom and her heart in this thrilling fantasy adventure.

Shalia is a proud daughter of the desert, but after years of devastating war with the adjoining kingdom, her people are desperate for peace.

But she soon learns that her husband, Calix, is motivated only by his desire to exterminate the Elementae—mystical people who can control earth, wind, air, and fire. Even more unsettling are Shalia’s feelings for her husband’s brother, which unleash a power over the earth she never knew she possessed—a power that could get her killed. As rumors of a rebellion against Calix spread, Shalia must choose between the last chance for peace and her own future as an Elementae.
