Captured for what she could become, Anastasia has spent her entire life at the mercy of her enemy.
Unfortunately for her, she didn't realize it until it was far too late to run. When he comes for her, Anastasia finds herself ripped from all she's ever known, and tossed into a parallel world where monsters roam and darkness reigns.
The biggest issue? They are counting on her to stop it.

Jessica Wayne is the author of over fifteen fantasy and contemporary romance novels. The latter of which she writes as J.W. Ashley. During the day, she slays laundry and dishes as a homeschooling, stay at home mom of three, and at night her worlds come to life on paper.
She runs on coffee and wine (as well as the occasional whiskey!) and if you ever catch her wearing matching socks, it's probably because she grabbed them in the dark.
She is a believer of dragons, unicorns, and the power of love, so each of her stories contain one of those elements (and in some cases all three).
Jessica lives in Texas with her husband, kids, their two German Shepherd's who believe they're cat's, and a fluffy orange cat who thinks he's a dog.
You can usually find her in her Facebook group, The Wayne-O's, or keep in touch by subscribing to her newsletter where she shares updates as well as shenanigans she finds herself in.
