Publisher's Summary

Serena has a bright future etched in stone. Tristan has a dark past that haunts him. Together, they have a love that can never be.
Sheltered, and unable to escape her bloodline, Serena St. Michael has spent the last two years training at the Royal Protector Academy. Struggling with a dark past, Tristan Gallagher's current assignment is to protect a lifetime of secrets. One chance encounter will change everything. Serena must decide if she will follow her heart, forsaking all she's ever known and risking a future worse than non-existence. Tristan will break every rule to save Serena, even if he can't keep her. In their world of darkness, one love will ignite an ancient war. When pasts collide with the present and secrets are revealed, will love be enough? Or will one lie destroy it all? When you've hidden behind a mask for so long, would you reveal yourself for love?
Vernal is the first novel in The Royal Protector Academy series. A dangerously exciting and darkly romantic tale that will take your breath away. It can be heard as a standalone trilogy, or after the best-selling Revelation Series. Intended for mature listeners 18+ due to language, mild violence, and sexual situations.

Great read!

What did you love best about Vernal?

Vernal is an easy, enjoyable read. Though it has an otherworldly premise, the story doesn’t focus much on that and instead focuses on the ‘forbidden love’ budding relationship between Tristan and Serena. The author had me seriously rooting for the two of them, despite a huge plot twist that I did NOT see coming (nice work!). I also really enjoyed many of the secondary characters in this book.

Any additional comments?

My only complaint is that while Vernal is listed as book #1 in a series, it doesn’t do a great job introducing its world and characters. Apparently, there’s another series (Revelation) that’s helpful to read first, so maybe that’s why initially I was somewhat confused in this book. Despite that - great book and I look forward to reading book #2 to see what becomes of Tristan and Serena.

Serena and Tristan's story is amazing!

These narrators were completely right for this story. It never gets easier to hear certain parts that break my heart . I can't wait for more of Tristan and Serena's story. Vernal was an amazing read!
