The Soul Mender

In an escape to avoid becoming the next victim of the Rocky Mountain Murderer, twenty-two-year-old Riley Dale finds herself flung into a parallel universe where good and evil seem to have switched places. 

As her deadly visions become real, Riley discovers the implausible story of a world split in two, and the truth about her ancestors who have been hunted for thousands of years because of a single mistake made long ago. 

And now it’s Riley's turn to pay for that blunder.

Pursued by both the government and a clandestine sect of assassins, Riley must ally with the only people in the parallel universe willing to keep her safe—her lowlife counter soul, and the opposite soul of a man who tortured and killed five young women.

THE Peace Keeper:
Book Two of The Soul Mender Trilogy

Safe in her own world, Riley Dale should finally be able to put the horrifying experience in the parallel universe behind her.  But as she processes recent events, business as usual is not an option. Her allies are still in big trouble.

To rescue her friends, Riley ventures back into the parallel world she’d tried so hard to escape. As her path winds through a maze of twisted history and familial legend, she finds herself blocked by both her attitude and insecurities, as well as by her enemies.

And those enemies are becoming desperate.

As each version of the world and her opponents grow more volatile, Riley must cast aside her own weakness and accept the mantle of Electa if she can ever hope to save humanity from a devastating end.

I’ve found the best thing to do with bad luck is to keep it right under your nose. That way it can’t pop up and surprise you. You never know. Maybe the object that curses you is the only one that can set you free.
— Michael Flynn, Chapter 25
