When two worlds collide, nightmares become reality. And some secrets...are best kept in Oblivion.
...Until there is hope.

Have you ever wanted to forget? Nariella Woodlinn has. Many times. Especially when her already frustrating life gets turned upside down by a mysterious boy who randomly shows up in her small town. And she can't seem to understand anything about him, despite how much she tries.

​Nari hates everything about her life, except for her best friend Rydan, but now that they've been separated during their senior year of high school, she has to learn to make new friends without him. When strange, unexplainable phenomena start becoming an every day part of her life, Nari struggles to come to grips with reality. And with love.

​Naminé has responsibilities. Duties. It is her obligation to fulfill all that is asked of her by their King. But when a glimmer of hope is introduced to her by a prisoner she tends to, it means life or death for her and her people. She does all that she can to turn that hope into reality, and finally end the vicious war that has been ensuing since she was born. Even if that means keeping it secret from her King. Even if it means carrying out the biggest betrayal against the King ever seen during her time.

She has hope. She will fulfill her duty. She will not let her people down.

Author: Bailey Ardisone
Genre: New Adult Fantasy/Romance
Release Date: July 25, 2013

Sometimes the hardest war to fight is the one raging within yourself…

Life will never be the same for Nariella Woodlinn. Just when she thought she had it all figured out, her world comes crumbling down around her-yet again. With no idea who she is or even where she came from, how can she save herself?
She once thought her biggest problems were the ones brought on by the mysterious man she refused to fall in love with—Mycah. But she quickly discovers none of that compares to what she is about to encounter next.
This time, it isn’t because of who Mycah is.
This time, it’s because of who she is.
Naminé risked everything to save her people. Her goal was to bring their only hope back to their Kingdom. As the war rages on around her, Naminé gets thrown into the lion’s den—the false King’s chambers. Can she fool a King who can’t be deceived on his playing field? Forced to do his bidding, can she prevent the downfall of the only hope she worked so hard to bring home? Will she be able to escape with her life and mind intact?

With everyone’s world falling apart and deceit around every corner…can any of them truly Escape?

Returning to Kennebunkport isn't all that it's cracked up to be for Nari and Rydan. Barely escaping one evil by the skin of their teeth, running head first into the next was the last thing they were expecting. With Nari's best friend Zaylie held hostage by the leader of the Black Eagles, Nari's number one priority is getting Zaylie, along with everyone else she cares about, back home safe and sound. Only, the worst thing that could possibly happen has happened.


With the hope of undoing what would normally be permanent, Nari, with the help of the two brothers she loves most in the world, sets out on a unique quest that could ultimately mean her downfall. Is the end result worth the sacrifice? Is Nariella truly willing to do whatever is necessary to fulfill a vow?

Or is there nothing that can reverse the start of a Sweet Requiem?

Thank you so much for joining us BFF *smiles at you* we hope you have fun. Now please take a seat where ever you’d like, oh and here *hands you brownies and water* Jazzy and I thought you’d might like a snack.
Jazzy-*giggles and looks at you seriously* So Micah, how do you think you would fair against the Winchester brothers?  Please say you know who they are.
Hello, ladies. So nice to visit your blog today. Thanks for hosting me and for the brownies *takes one*. Now as for your question about Sam and Dean? I like those guys and have no reason to fight them. Yet. *evil smiles*
Meg-*trying to keep a serious face* Does your relationship with Jonathan turn into a bro-mance? 
Haha. Uh, that would be a huge fat “no.” Pretty much the opposite of that, actually.
Jazzy-*crosses legs and looks at you, patiently waiting for answer* what is your favorite horror movie? And why?
I like the original Wes Craven movies like Nightmare on Elm Street instead of the newly remade stuff. Or the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Because they’re scarier :)
Meg-*smiles brightly* Now I can’t wait to see what kind of music you like so If you could see anybody in concert who would it be?
I’ve always wanted to see Coldplay. Maybe Hope will hook me up one of these days, huh?
Jazzy-*smiles encouragingly at you* what do you want people to learn from your story?
I think one of the biggest themes of this book is about justice. We need to be very careful about how we judge people and their actions.
Meg-*Gives you a pointed look* So Micah is there anything that we should know, before we read your book?
Hmm… *ponders this* You should know that it’s going to be quite the ride, but that everything we do is for a good reason (even if we don’t know what that reason is) *glares at author*
Jazzy-*leans closer to you and smiles* So Micah If you could do anything in the world, what would it be and why?
Career-wise, you mean? I want to go into law, ideally follow in the footsteps of my boss Jack Williamson. Demon district attorney, can you see it?
Meg-*laughs* yes totally random but Pepsi or coke?
Coke. I actually drink a few of them in book two. *looks around for endorsement check*
Jazzy-*sits back and gives you a quizzical look*Why do you have such a problem with swearing?
It’s how I was raised. *whispers* But I may throw a few swear words out there in book two because of extreme circumstances. Don’t judge me and don’t tell my mom.
Alright Micah we have thrown in some would you rather or yes and no questions so be prepared*giggles* some are quite silly.
Uh oh.
Meg,Jazzy *both siting at the edge of our seat* After high school, do you plan on proposing to Hope? Yes or No
Meg-*shudder and looks at you* would you rather be a girl for a day? OR get your soul ripped out?
Haha. I’d rather be a girl for a day. I had my soul ripped out before, and it’s not something I care to go through again.
Jazzy-*takes a pen and paper out* ok I need new music so do you think there is a song that describes you and Hope’s relationship?
For book two? Demons by Imagine Dragons. Yeah, yeah, I know I’m very original. It fits, though.
Meg-*looks at you sadly* what is the one thing that you regret the most?
Accidentally hurting my mom. After book two, I have another huge regret, but I can’t tell you about that yet.
Jazzy-*grins at you* what is the one thing in life that scares you the most? *nudges you* come on something must frighten you.
Ravens kind of freak me out. You can thank Poe for that one.
Meg-*glares at you* So BFF do you think that we will need Kleenex and chocolate while reading this book? *rolls up sleeves* better hope not mister.
Yes. Definitely yes. *hands you both*
Jazzy-*Burst out laugh while asking the question* would you rather get a tattoo of Hope on your butt OR eat raw meat?
Oh man, really? Ummm…. I guess… the meat?
Meg-*hands you a napkin after you spat out water thanks to the last question* If there was one book that you could live in, what would it be and why?
Huh. That’s a tough one because I already live in a book. I think I need to stay in mine so I can work things out before I move on to another one. Sorry for the lame answer. :)
Jazzy-*sighs and looks at you adoringly* what is your ideal date that you want to take Hope on?
Ideal date would mean I’d give her the choice of three places she wanted to go and fly her blindfolded to one of them. I’ve actually tried this before, but we wound up making out in the sky and didn’t get very far. *blushes* And then there was that whole curfew thing that she has nowadays.
Meg-*grabs your hand looks at you* If you could go on vacation with Hope, where would you take her?
We talked about this over our semester break – we threw darts on a map and planned it all out. I think we decided that we’d go to Africa, Australia, Japan, the Mediterranean, and Indonesia. Not necessarily in that order.
Jazzy,Meg-*both say at the same time* Can we interview you, Hope and Jonathan sometime soon?
You bet. We’d be happy to come visit you. Any time.
Thank you again Micah for joining us today *shrugs and giggles* we really hope you enjoyed the random awesomeness of these questions. After book two we will probably have many more question for you *both give you a giant hug*
*hugs you back* Thanks for having me, Meggy and Jazzy. :)

I close the door as softly as possible, whispering, “Hey, we need to keep our voices d–”

But Micah’s not by the window anymore, and he grabs me in a hug. I twist around to face him, noticing that his clothes already feel dry if not a little steamy. But those thoughts drop to the floor along with the towel as he pulls me even closer.

His skin is so warm.

His lips press against mine and are even warmer.

He smells like summer, like the warm air right after it rains. I stand on my toes and slide my arms up and around his neck. One of his hands laces through my hair, and the other presses against the small of my back. His mouth opens, the heat from his kiss transferring to me and melting away my stress from the night.

A tiny part of me wonders why he came back tonight, if something else happened, or if he didn’t want to be alone because of what happened to Jack. But it’s getting harder to think rationally with Micah kissing me like this.
