Guest Blog & Giveaway with Zoe Forward


I’m thrilled to be celebrating the release of Forgotten in Darkness here at Anna’s Book Blog! Forgotten In Darkness is the second in my Scimitar Magi paranormal romance series, and it was a total blast to write. Today, I thought I’d share six reasons to give Forgotten in Darkness a try, even if you haven’t read the first book in the series:

6. Most of the reviews are coming down on the side of Forgotten In Darkness being successful as a stand-alone novel, meaning you don’t have to have read Dawn of a Dark Knight to get what’s going on and follow along. So you can jump into bed with Dakar right now!

5. Plenty of great action-adventure to keep you entertained. Forgotten In Darkness has lots of fight scenes between daemons and the magi. They were a blast to write.

4. Fascinating character ensemble. In addition to the main romantic couple of Dakar and Shay, there are seven other magi and a whole host of characters including gods and Hashishins in Forgotten In Darkness, most playing only a minimal part. But I think this adds depth to the world building and the mythology.

3. Sexual tension. From the first moment Dakar sees Shay, he not only wants her, he needs her. And he feels that need deep into his soul. The pull between them is so great because she is his senariai or soulmate. But there’s a catch. She is also the woman who has murdered him repeatedly for centuries because of their curse. This time around to break their curse he must resist their attraction and kill her first.

 2. Admirable, kick-ass heroine. Shay might be a bit impulsive, but she doesn’t let anyone push her around. Her strength makes me wish I knew her as a real person!

1. Alpha hero! Dakar is a bad-ass, take-charge, no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoner kinda guy. His fighting ability and supernatural fire power are something to behold. Alpha, pseudo-immortal, dominant…yummy! What better hero for a winter read? So snuggle into bed and get reading. Read more about Zoe’s books and her new release, Forgotten in Darkness:


Forgotten In Darkness
Scimitar Magi #2
By Zoe Forward

After an unjustified two-century stint in purgatory, Scimitar Magus Dakar returns to the human realm, renewing his eons-old curse. Once again he must murder the woman he loves. To break the vicious cycle, he must kill her before she strikes her deathblow, something he's never done in the past.

Archaeology grad student, Shay McGinnis, suffers a near-death attack in pursuit of a piece of Scimitar Magi lore. But did the magnificent warrior who pinned her to the wall injure her or the daemon he fought? In her search for answers, she draws the attention of both an ancient evil sorcerer and the warrior Dakar. The attraction between her and Dakar is instant, and for Shay confusing. She wants to be with him, but intuition equates him with death. Not random death. Hers.

Will this be the lifetime they break the curse before they are murdered by an age old enemy or worse kill each other yet again?
