Monday, February 10th is the release day for Home: Hidden, Book Three. Here’s the description, along with some of my favorite blurbs and reviews, which will also be included in the Amazon listing:
Vigilante. Telepath. Godslayer.
Molly Brooks has never been one to shy away from a fight, to hide from what needs to be done to protect the innocent.
Even when it ends up costing her everything.
* * *
Molly was beginning to have the type of life she’d only ever dreamed of: friends, family, rewarding work. Respect.
And her actions put her world, and every person she loved, in danger.
So she did what she had to do: she protected her world from war. A war she caused, a war fought because of who she is, and what she is capable of. She never could have imagined that in doing so, she would be taken away from everything that mattered most to her.
Lost in a hostile world, away from everyone and everything that ever mattered to her, Molly has to find a way to make peace, and then she has to find a way make her way back home.
Assuming she can survive that long.
When and if she gets there, will the world she loves still be the same?
And the bigger question is: will she?

Praise for the HIDDEN series:
“LOST GIRL is smart urban fantasy with the perfect balance of humor and emotion. Vanderlinden combines witty dialogue and an original premise, using the crumbling urban landscape of Detroit as a backdrop for heart pumping action with just the right balance of romance. A great debut effort, and a series I’m eager to follow.” ––Elizabeth Hunter, best selling author of the Elemental Mysteries, Elemental World, and Irin Chronicles series
“Great heroine in a very entertaining story, a new take on this genre and very welcome too. A kickass heroine who takes no prisoners. Entertaining and recommended, can’t wait for the next installment!” – Tilly via Amazon.co.uk
“Demons. Monsters. A girl of mysterious origins who kicks ass using supernatural powers. Humor. Romance. Violence. Memorable characters. Good and evil and a hell of a lot in between. There’s a lot of good stuff in here.” – Alex Hansen, author of The Weather Man and The New Devil
“Molly is such an amazing character. As a reader you are drawn into her story, feeling emotions with her. Molly is a force to be reckoned with, and you experience her anger, frustration, and happiness. It only going to get better from here.” – Jayna Longstreet, via Amazon.com
“This is the best urban fantasy/horror series I’ve ever read. Full of fantastic characters who are both terrifying and sympathetic. The melding of modern day society with creatures from myth and legend is very well done.” – Kellie Roach, via Amazon.com

I am really excited about the release of this book. So far, it’s my favorite of the series. It was also the most challenging to write. I felt like I pushed myself quite a bit with Home. Some of it was recognizing my own stubbornness, and then being willing to kill my darlings. I’ve mentioned before that I had the book finished in November. And then I read it, and HATED the ending. So I ended up scrapping and re-writing the final third of the book, which then required re-writing entire sections of the earlier parts of the book. It’s a stronger book than it was, and I hope readers enjoy it.
So, there we go: one week! I am dying to hear what you guys think of Home!
