About this book:

The totality of a solar eclipse lasts only a few short minutes. That’s more than enough time for an apocalypse to erupt.
Almost eighteen years have passed since the Eclipse changed the Earth forever, and Sebastian Za’in rose from the chaos and seized control, imposing his order on the broken planet. In a world ruled by fear and superstition, where all gods have perished, there is no one who can stand up to Za’in, the man rumored to be one of the Nephilim—hybrid offspring of Angel and Man. In a few short months, another Eclipse will occur, and while there are those who expect a new natural disaster, Za’in has plans of his own . . .
Completely unaware of this global turmoil, Kayla Steelryn has spent most of her life in a quiet village, longing to uncover her hidden past. When she leaves her home in search of answers, she finds herself faced with the truth about her identity, forced to choose between the two men she loves, and thrust into a conflict where she alone has the power to stop an event more disastrous than the end of the world

About this book:

It is 1912 when a gentleman arrives at the gateway to the imperial hunting lodge known as Spala in Polish Russia. But Charles Sydney Gibbes is not just any gentleman—he is the Romanov family’s English tutor. Nicholas II, the most powerful and wealthy monarch of modern times, rules a nation spread across eleven time zones. Gibbes, who serves as English tutor to the Romanov children, has already gained the family’s affection. But as Gibbes dutifully teaches, a strange holy man begins orchestrating a chain of events that eventually lead to the loss of a war and the family’s wealth, their murders eight years later, and the abolishment of the monarchy. As Gibbes discovers the price of his loyalty, he also realizes that even when the book of history closes, the book of life never ends. The Night is Far Gone shares the historical tale of an imperial Russian family, its patriarch, and their loyal English tutor as they all attempt to find their way in a chaotic world.  Continue reading
