Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the dark Fae in order to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they could have imagined. Now, in a final push, Myst returns with a vengeance to bring the Golden Wood forever under the rule of the Indigo Court.
Newly crowned Fae Queens Cicely and Rhiannon have embraced their destinies and claimed their thrones. But Myst is rising once more, and now, at the helm of her armies, she begins her final assault on the Golden Wood. As Fae, vampires, and magic-born alike fall under the tide of blood, Cicely and her friends must discover a way to destroy the spidery queen before they—and their people—face total annihilation.

When my editor asked me write a dear reader letter about NIGHT’S END, I wasn’t sure what to write. So I thought about it. I tried, “Dear Reader, you want to buy this book because—it’s a great book!” but that didn’t really say much. Then I went with: “Dear Reader, BUY ALL TEH BOOKZ!” but without the image meme, it didn’t seem so funny. I also thought: “Dear Reader, please buy my books because I really really want you to!” but that sounded kind of whiny. So, I have to start fresh.
First: Night’s End (and the Indigo Court Series) is paranormal romance, and a dark Faerie tale. Expect vampires and witches, and Vampiric Fae, and a parallel contemporary world where magic is inherent within everything.
The blurb gives you the idea for what happens in the book (and it IS accurate, unlike a number of back cover blurbs), so I’m not going to reiterate it. But I DO want to tell you what generated this series.
The Indigo Court Series was born from a dream that I had. Now, bear in mind, I have very vivid dreams, in color, a lot of nightmares, and a lot of fantastical visions come out of those dreams. Most stick around for awhile, but then I forget them. But some…some stay with me.
In the dream that spawned Cicely Waters’s world, I found myself staring at a painting. The painting was so real I felt I could reach out and walk into it. The canvas was painted in shades of gold and white, oddly enough.
The painting showed a snowy forest, filled with mythological and magical beings. A woman was walking along the path and I knew her name was Cicely. I also knew—in that odd way dreams have of filling in information—that Cicely was on a quest, looking for her aunt.
Rising over the scene was a spidery queen. Her name was Myst, and she was the Queen of the Indigo Court. A threat to the Golden Wood, Myst had captured Cicely’s aunt. A host of beasts crowded round her feet. These fantastical beasts were Myst’s people—Vampiric Fae, looking to help the mad queen take over the Summer and Winter Fae Courts, and bring the long winter to the world.
When I woke up, the dream stuck with me. I wrote it down, and went on with my regular work, but over the coming weeks, I kept returning to re-read the vision I’d had. It stuck with me, so deep in my core that I knew there was a story there. I began to play with the ideas and finally talked to my agent, and then my editor, and so the series was born.
And now, Cicely and her cousin Rhiannon, rise in battle against Myst, and seek to destroy Myst, to restore balance to the Golden Wood, and bring an end to the longest night. The image that first haunted my dreams, now haunts the page and waits for you to join the adventure. Will you dare to enter the realm of the Indigo Court?
