Solina Mundy lives a quiet life, running the family bakery in her small North Carolina hometown. But one night, she suffers a vivid nightmare in which a wolfish beast is devouring her twin brother, who lives in Alaska. The next morning, police notify her that Mani is dead. Driven to learn the truth, Solina heads for the Land of the Midnight Sun. Once there, she begins to suspect Mani’s friends know more about his death than they’ve let on. Skyla, an ex-Marine, is the only one willing to help her.

As Solina and Skyla delve into the mystery surrounding Mani’s death, Solina is stunned to learn that her own life is tied to Mani’s friends, his death, and the fate of the entire world. If she can’t learn to control her newfound gifts and keep her friends safe, a long-lost dominion over mortals will rise again, and everything she knows will fall into darkness.

Midnight Burning…And the Hidden Gem Pile just got one book taller! Midnight Burning Karissa Laurel satisfies mystery lovers, mythology lovers, paranormal lovers and those who like a little pinch of romantic spice in the potential shape of a triangle. What makes this a standout? Location, action, characters, dialogue and intrigue, not to mention the ever-present danger!

Solina, a small town baker from the Southern East Coast has come to Alaska to settle her late brother’s affairs. Already trying to come to terms with his death, she can’t help but feel things are not as they seem on the surface. His best friend and his boss are most helpful, in their own ways, but there is something being hidden from her and it isn’t dirt under the rug. They each both attract her and repel her at the same time romantically, but is that just her frayed nerves or desperation? Nobody is talking about Mani’s death, not even the law, but she is going to find out what really happened. What she discovers is unbelievable, incredible and deadly, very deadly. People are not as they seem, Mani had a secret life and hers is about to go through the wringer. Will she come out a little sadder but much wiser? Have her dreams been trying to prepare her for what she is about to learn? Who is she really down in her soul?

Grab your mittens, the hot chocolate and get ready to enter the world of fantasy, told by a new and impressive author with an imagination as big as Alaska! Wonderful characters, some who grow into themselves, some who are flirty, some standoffish, but not all are on the right side of the battle between good and evil. Karissa Laurel has a wonderful foundation for a new series that promises to be a nailbiter as the gods clash, and one young woman may be the key to victory! Talk about coming out of her (Solina’s)shell when things get tough!
