Love knows no bounds.

Cursed by the dark mage who killed her, Hilda Janssen has wandered the Earthly plane as a ghost for fifty years, finally finding her place as an IRT hunter, policing supernatural misfits trapped on Earth after a brutal war.

When a demon attacks, putting her team in mortal danger, Hilda sacrifices herself to save her friends. She’s already died once; what difference will doing it again make? But instead of meeting a final death, Hilda is cast into the Void, a magical prison from which there is no escape.

Her only hope is Cade Kerrigan, the lover she left behind after her first death. Their bond and his magic are the only things strong enough to pull her through the Veil. But Cade has no idea his soulmate came back as a ghost, and he isn’t too happy to have been left in the dark.

They must put aside the baggage of the past to save Hilda from a fate worse than death.

Warning: Contains star-crossed lovers destined for a second chance, a whirlwind of powerful magic, and a love so strong it defies even death.

Q & A with Angela Dennis

Q:  Tell us a little bit about your main characters.
Cade and Hilda are definitely two strong-willed personalities. Hilda is a quirky ghost, with a snarky sense of humor and fierce protective streak. When she was alive, she was a witch working undercover to take down a rival coven. After her death, she hooked up with Brenna and eventually joined the IRT as a hunter. She is one of my favorite secondary characters in the first two books. Cade is powerful and headstrong. He doesn’t take crap from anyone. But he has a soft spot for Hilda. She gets under his skin in a powerful way.

Q:  Describe your ideal writing spot.
Anywhere it’s quiet. I have a toddler, so quiet is at a premium in my house.

Q:  What is the best advice you have been given?

It sounds silly because it is so simplistic, but to never give up. The rode to getting published can be difficult and very frustrating. But you just keep pressing forward, learning, and never give up.

Q:  How do you keep busy when you're not writing?
I wish I was a little less busy. I still work a full-time day job on top of my writing. I also have a beautiful little boy and a wonderful husband who fill my days.

Q:  If you could have any superhuman ability, what would you choose and why?
I love this question. If only…right? I’d love to have the ability to heal. My son has some significant health issues, and watching him struggle with them has really been a learning experience for me. There are so many extraordinary children struggling with disease. I would love to be able to heal them all and lift that burden from them.

Q:  Which do you prefer: hard/paperbacks or ebooks?
I love them both. There’s nothing better than the feel and smell of a book in your hands. But nothing beats the convenience of my Kindle.

Q:  What book are you reading now?
I’m actually between books. I just finished Burned by Karen Marie Moning and I’m getting ready to start Styxx by Sherilynn Kenyon.
