Reblogged from www.susanillene.com. This is an awesome series and can’t wait to read it.
Darkness Wanes is now available!
I know you all have been waiting patiently (or in some cases impatiently) for the sixth and final novel in the Sensor Series to release. Darkness Wanes is now available at Amazon and Kobo. I will post links to B&N and iTunes as soon as it’s available on their sites.
This novel ended up being just over 126k words long in order to wrap up everything relating to Lucas and Melena (though a few open threads are left for spin-off books with other characters). It took a long time to get this novel finished, but I’m pleased with how it turned out and hope you will be, too. For audio listeners, my publisher just let me know Darkness Wanes will be released on June 21st in audio format. They’ve got it on schedule with the same narrator who has handled all the other Sensor books.
There is also a bonus holiday short story featuring Kerbasi, titled An Unexpected Gift, included at the end of the book. I originally revealed the story over at Nocturnal Book Reviews in December, but it has not been available in an ebook until now. On the Sensor Series timeline, An Unexpected Gift falls after the end of the main series so it does give you a little glimpse into how things are going for some characters approximately seven months down the line. There will also be full-length spinoff novels set in the Sensor World in the future. I expect to release the first one in early 2017. For the rest of this year, though, I’ll be focusing on the dragon books.
Below is a summary for the novel and links to the retailers. Thanks to everyone who has stayed with me to the end of the series. All the kind words of encouragement and messages from fans have meant a lot.
Melena Sanders is locked away in Purgatory, which is no vacation, but she’ll soon be returning to Alaska where troubles are mounting once again. Suspicious fires are breaking out, supernaturals are being attacked, and there’s an enemy lurking out there waiting for his chance to strike. Her lover, Lucas, is managing to hold their home together during her absence, but he’s more than ready for her to return. It will take the two of them working together, along with friends and family, to overcome the darkness that is about to unleash.
