IT'S HERE, FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SHIELD & SHADE!!!!!!!!!!


This was probably one of the easiest, yet HARDEST books I've ever written so far. The story came to me fairly quickly (Ehem . . . *cough cough*), once I brainstormed with my twin sis, Christy Leonard--she suggested I write in Zo's POV.

I am so very proud of it.

Note: If you haven't yet, be sure to read The Blood Dagger Trilogy first, because Shield & Shade is a spin-off of this series--although, it's not necessary to have read them first in order to read Shield & Shade.

See what people are saying about Shield & Shade already:

"Dark and intense ..." "I LOVED IT! I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. I loved the new characters. You definitely had me going one way, and then twisted the plot. That makes such a good book. I couldn't even tell what was going to happen." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I am so excited for this new series by Misty Hayes, and also thrilled that we get to see much loved characters from The Blood Dagger trilogy again." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "...I couldn’t stop reading once I started. Now that I finished it I can’t help but look forward to finding out what happens next." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This book was just as amazing as I’d hoped it would be ..." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "If you’re a fan of the Mortal Instruments, you definitely want to check this out! ...I can’t wait for the next book!" "...This book had me wanting to call off work because there were so many THINGS happening and I didn't want to put it down!"


It's been over ten years since fifteen-year-old Zoey Taylor wandered away from her family home in the middle of the night. Or so she's been told, repeatedly, by her mother—but the only thing Zoey knows for sure is that when her older brother, Corinth, found her in the woods, safe and unharmed, she returned with a crippling fear of the dark and no other memories from those lost days—except strange flashes of sharp teeth and red-flaming hair.

Since that time, she's become a star pupil and is on track to graduate early … if and that's a big IF her overprotective family doesn't get in the way of her dreams first.

But when one of the wealthiest, enigmatic philanthropists on the planet—Gabriel Stanton—shows up on her doorstep on Thanksgiving Day, and reveals the truth about what really happened to her all those years ago, it completely shatters her perception of the world.

And the story isn't anything like what she's been told.

The Ascended Guardians Series is a supernatural thrill-ride that never lets up.

eBook is up for preorder and the paperback/hardcover are coming soon. Get it now!

OR you can purchase direct from my website and GET IT RIGHT NOW (no wait): or from my PAYHIP store: and the best part, it's a DISCOUNTED price.

Thank you all SO very much for your support.
