Spotlight On: The Amaranthine Chronicles + Guest Post

 The Amaranthine Chronicles
 by Tiffany Shand

Betrayed By Blood
In a city of lies and deception, only one thing stands between chaos and justice. For centuries, a band of outlaws called the Amaranthine has kept the peace in Ormere and hidden in plain sight whilst the Order of Sorcerers spreads their deadly magic among the city’s inhabitants.
After losing her fiancĂ© in bust gone wrong, Amaranthine Agent Kaylan Avilion returns home to discover that Elijah didn’t die but instead was changed by the twisted guards of the Order, who seek to find a dangerous artifact tied to Kaylan’s past and the murder of her family. When her sister goes missing and a foe from their past reemerges, Kaylan knows she must save Freya before she’s poisoned by the very people who took Elijah away from her. But how will Kaylan react when she learns Elijah’s secret and can they come together to stop the Order’s plan in time?

Dark Revenge
Darkness is sweeping through the city of Ormere as unnatural creatures stalk through the streets. People are dying and time is running out as a new evil threatens to take control of everything. The Amaranthine Order has been decimated leaving only a few of its people left to fight the coming terror.
Stunned by her sister Freya’s betrayal and plot to take over the city, Kaylan must do everything she can to find out what Freya plans to do when she finds an infamous book linked to the murder of their family. A book considered so dangerous that the last High Lord erased its location from history, the Amaranthine Chronicles are said to contain the darkest of all magics.
Kaylan is happy to finally have her ex-fiancĂ©, Elijah, back in her life but he’s not the man she once knew and loved. After being turned into a shapeshifter, Elijah struggles to control his inner beast and his lingering feelings for Kaylan.
Can Elijah and Kaylan come together to stop Freya and uncover the secrets of the book before it’s too late?

The Final Battle
Darkness has claimed the city of Ormere and death has become a certainty for anyone stalking its empty streets. The government in ruins and lawlessness ensues.
After being dragged back into the past, Kaylan and Elijah barely managed to thwart her sister, Freya’s latest attempts to find and use the elusive Amaranthine Chronicles. But in her desperation to receive ultimate power, Freya will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Even if it means destroying the last of her family.
Kaylan and Elijah must work on their fragile relationship and put their personal feelings aside to find the book and stop Freya before it’s too late. But with their allies growing thin, their best friends both injured and a gang of ruthless shapeshifters close on their trail, will they finally find the book and stop Freya before time runs out? And will Kaylan have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save her city and the man she loves?

What Inspired My New Series the Amaranthine Chronicles
by Tiffany Shand

I’ve always been fascinated by shape shifters and werewolves and shifter stories. I also really love wolves so I decided this series would have some kind of shapeshifter in it. I wanted it to be something completely different from my previous series.

After going through an old fantasy series I’d written a few years ago, I decided to change the storyline and set it in a more modern, urban setting. Once I had a proper outline and a good idea of who the characters were going to be. The storyline slowly unfolded. I knew I wanted it to be set in a make-believe city that was full of corruption and danger. After going to London and seeing Tower Bridge there I decided to set the series solely around one place. I wanted to show the corruption there and it was fun writing a about a band of outlaws who go around righting the wrongs.  But at the centre of the story is the romance between the two main characters who had previously been a loving relationship but had then torn apart and how they work to find their way back to each other.
