fantasy souls - book-nicole heinz-afterwardsI’d always known I was different, a loner, the pretty little weird girl. But
not even my overactive imagination could’ve made this up…

When will the world end? We all wonder this at some point in our lives. For
me, it was sooner than I expected. Now I’m in hiding with Markus Kelly, a
man I just met, against an enemy that claims they were here first and we’re

reality. But the last thing I want is to close my eyes at night, and I’m dreadfully

I want my loved ones back but fate wants me more, one last time. Continue reading The Afterwards (The Rosewood Series Book 1) by N. Heinz
