The Second Breath Chronicles [consisting of four books at the moment] are a fresh, creative take on life as a human among mythical, immortal beings.
Carmina Nightshade feels as if her entire life has been one big illusion when she learns that her family and clan are not human. This unsettling revelation leads to a deeper understanding of her family’s behavior around her, though it brings very little comfort. She now knows she triggers their hunting instinct by simply being around them!
Now begins the turbulent journey of self discovery, perilous dangers and buried truths.
As Carmina learns that her entire identity is a lie, she also meets with the dark and brooding Liam Moretti.
The act of falling in love becomes a burden with catastrophic consequences.
Carmina will soon learn, however, that this problem pales by comparison to the darkness that lurks within herself.
Love live, she has to die, to die, she has to live – and to love, she has to face her own history founded in mythology!
Hidden Carmina is the first of three books, and it comes with a warning:
This book is an emotional read, but it does come with a promise too: You will have your HEA…. Eventually

Recruiters is part of the Chronicles, but Agri is a ‘new’ Vampire, unlearning human ways and yet… becoming a little more human along the way.”Having written website content, newsletters, blogs, forum posts and managed large communities online – Adri Sinclair knows how to be social and enjoy the interactive side of being a netizen.

2. Her technical writing is exceptional for a non-native speaker.
3. Because of the above, I am giving her a pass for the editing and grammar issues.
Now on to the good part. Have you read Twilight? Did you like it? Did you hate it? I read it and all the subsequent books and I loved them. In fact, I have probably read the entire series two or three times. It’s one of my go-to series when I am waiting on new reads and am bored.
Hidden Carmina is WAY better than Twilight. Some of you might think that’s nothing because you didn’t like Twilight, well all the things you hated about it, Adri fixed and made better in this book. It is a new adult, coming-of-age story, but without the angst associated with this type of paranormal romance. Carmina is a girl who knows who she is, loves who she is, and falls hard for a guy she doesn’t know enough about. She is a beautiful character and in conjunction with sexy, brooding Liam, I had the silliest grin plastered on my face for the entire book. Adri’s supernaturals are unique and a wonderful mix of common legends. I thought her vampires were amazing and sexy as hell. I am really looking forward to reading the rest of this series
