A sexy Aussie Detective. A witch who doesn't know her power. A demon who could destroy them both.
For her, he'll break all the rules.
Upon returning to her hometown for her grandmother's funeral, Sage Matthews is terrorized by a series of strange events. She dismisses each eerie occurrence as a by-product of her overwrought emotional state, until it becomes chillingly clear that something not of this world is desperate to get a message—or is it a warning?—through to her…
Detective Sergeant Ethan Blade comes to Cryton, South Australia, to catch a serial killer. When Ethan meets Sage—the latest victim's beautiful granddaughter—his attraction to her is explosive and inconvenient. He knows she's not crazy, but Sage's theory about the murders is unbelievable.
With the handsome detective rejecting her ideas, Sage embarks on the supernatural journey that her grandmother started. What she discovers shatters everything Sage ever knew about herself—and who she really is.
Ethan's routine case quickly turns personal when he discovers Sage is the killer's next target. For her, he'll break all the rules and cross every line. But how can he protect Sage from an evil he cannot even conceive of?

THE SEER'S DAUGHTER by Athena Daniels is book one in the Beyond the Grave series. And it is as chilling as it is sexy. The story blows in like a storm, as we meet Sage Matthews. As the storm rages, she stares out into the once immaculate garden as she mourns the death of her grandmother. From the start, Ms. Daniels does an amazing job of setting the tone for a story that will have you jumping at shadows. Enter Detective Sergeant Ethan Blade. To Blade, "Cryton was a town like any other, and yet something raised the tiny hairs on the back of his neck."
Like everything about this story, the gradual attraction between Sage and Ethan is well-crafted and the external conflicts (something evil this way comes) make for an amazing balance between seeming normalcy and well, a demon. Oh, oh, and a paranormal investigation with a hot investigator.
This is much more than a romance. The paranormal aspects along with the secondary characters really make the story. The descriptions, language, emotions, dialogue…are all cleverly written to keep you engaged and the pages turning, while the suspense will make sure you read this story with all the lights on.
