Empowered: Traitor is published

The second novel in The Empowered series, Empowered: Traitor, is now available on Amazon. Mat's troubles deepen as she leads a Scourge cell that uncovers nightmarish artificial life, and she must choose who to betray in order to stop a massive atrocity from happening. Thanks for reading!

Empowered: Traitor release date

A quick notice from the management that Empowered: Traitor, the second book in The Empowered series, will be released on March 21st! The pre-order is now up on Amazon, and is a great way to get a copy automatically when the book is launched. I really love the cover art my designer, Clarissa Yeo, did for this book, it captures the feel perfectly.
