When myth becomes reality, reality becomes a nightmare.
Like any other teenager in America, Ashley just wants a normal life. But growing up in an orphanage for the insane is anything but normal. After endless therapy and increasing medication, her nightmares have only gotten worse.
Probably because they’re not nightmares.
When Ashley’s mysteriously abducted, she finds a reality even less normal than the orphanage. And she discovers something else—she’s no ordinary orphan. Faced with enemies thought to only exist in fairy tales, Ashley discovers she possesses a powerful Maya bloodline. She’s the daughter of an ancient Maya Guardian, whose duty is to protect the Stone of Muuk’ich, an enchanted relic blessed by the gods. But first she must get it back from Sarian, a power-hungry demigod who slaughtered the last guardian— Ashley’s mother. Without the stone, all will be lost.
When she meets Arwan, a hot Belizean time bender, his delicious olive skin and dark eyes make her feel
a little less alone. But his gentle whispers and reassuring touch might not be all they seem. How can she
balance love and duty when it’s up to her to prevent the rising of the underworld? Especially when the
guy she loves might be its crown prince…
Meet Theresa McClinton
A long time enthusiast of things that go bump in the night, Theresa started her writing career as a journalism intern—possibly the least creative writing field out there. After her first semester at a local newspaper, she washed her hands of press releases and features articles to delve into the whimsical world of young adult paranormal romance.
Since then, Theresa has gotten married, had three terrific kids, moved to central Ohio, and was repeatedly guilt tripped into adopting a menagerie of animals that are now members of the family. But don’t be fooled by her domesticated appearance. Her greatest love is travel. Having stepped foot on the soil of over a dozen countries, traveled to sixteen U.S. states—including an extended seven-year stay in Kodiak, Alaska—she is anything but settled down. But wherever life brings her, she will continue to weave tales of adventure and love with the hope her stories will bring joy and inspiration to her readers.

My Own Piece of Maya
For our 10th anniversary, my husband and I went to the Yucatan Peninsula for a week. Our anniversary happens to fall near the spring equinox, so we were able to attend the celebration of fertility/rebirth at Chichen Itza. To be witness to the pageantry and festivity was amazing. And being able to visit the ruins was spectacular! This trip was especially meaningful to me as I studied Spanish and Spanish/Mexican culture throughout my education. It was an experience I will always remember. So when I heard Theresa's book revolved around Maya culture and legend, I was thrilled! I can't wait to read it.
