First it was water.
And finally smoke.
Gwen Conway never knew there were so many ways to die. Honestly, it was something she would have been happy not knowing.
Maybe, they really are just dreams. Nightmares. But they won't stop. And dreaming of her death is getting old. Then there's the sleepwalking. She'd like to pass on that too.
Gwen's pretty sure the dreams have something to do with her new job. Which of course, is definitely not just a 'job.'
Don't get her wrong, working for the Archiver of the Time Streams has its perks. Having the power to travel to any past or future time is fantastic. Plus, there's Rafe, the ex-gladiator from the future. She'd like to keep him around too. Not that she would tell him that. It'd go straight to his head.
But she's less than pleased to find herself in the middle of a time travelers' war. Especially against a crazed half-god who has the power to obliterate the existence of any time or place. And the Guardians, her so called allies? All the help they offer are strict rules and smug superiority. Plus, they seem convinced she's already lost, that she's already died.
Gwen is starting to wonder whether she should have read her employment contract more carefully.
Borrowing themes from Greek and Roman legends such as Pandora and the war between the Titans and Olympians, lovers of mythology and fantasy alike will enjoy this mind-bending romp through different times and universes. Well-grounded in the world of today, this urban fantasy stands out from the pack with its complex theories on time travel and unique brand of quirky humor.

Characters & Cocktails Guest Post
I asked author J. D. Faulkner to helps us get to know the characters in her upcoming release by sharing what cocktails best match their personalities. Below, meet her character and their preferred drinks!
Gwen - A little sweet, and infinitely sunny, it’s a warm little drink to chase away the shadows.
- Tequila Sunrise: 4 oz orange juice, 2 oz tequila, ½ oz grenadine, pour over ice and garnish with an orange slice and Maraschino cherry
Rafe- Honestly, he would just prefer a pint of something dark, but the little umbrella pisses Alistair off every time he orders it.
- Mai Tai: 1 ½ oz spice rum, ½ oz coconut flavored rum, 1 tsp grenadine, 3 oz pineapple juize, 2 oz orange juice, garnish with a maraschino cherry … And a little umbrella, thank you kindly.
Alistair – If you won’t let him have his Scotch up, at least the honey sweetness of the Drambuie compliments the smoky flavor.
- Rusty Nail: 1 ½ oz Scotch, ¾ oz Drambuie, serve on the rocks with a lemon twist garnish
Maggie- Too much rum in the cabinet, seems like a great reason to throw a party.
- Jamaican rum punch: 1 cup Bicardi 151 rum, ½ cup Myer’s dark rum, ¼ cup Malibu coconut rum, 2 ½ cups pineapple juice, 2 ½ cups orange juice, ¼ cup lime juice, 3 tbsp grenadine, throw it in a punch bowl over some ice and let’s get this party started.
