Book Description

Every fifty years, the most powerful ethereal and infernal beings convene on Earth to resolve conflicts with mediation by kopides--humans born to police relations between Heaven and Hell. They're meeting in Elise Kavanagh's territory this year, and she used to be the greatest kopis in the world. But she's not invited.

An old friend, Lucas McIntyre, asks her to attend the summit in his place. But when she arrives, she discovers that a human faction called The Union has taken charge of the summit, and they're not playing nice. Worse yet, someone has killed a prominent Union member...and now they're demanding blood.

More About the Author

Hi everyone! My name is Sara, and I write urban fantasy novels as SM Reine. I collect swords, cat hair, and typewriters (which I do use for writing!). It's a good day when those three things have nothing to do with each other.

If you would like to know the instant I have a new book available, you should enlist in my Army of Evil! We have a WICKED cool secret handshake, but you'll have to sign up to learn it. ;) Check it out -- http://smarturl.it/armyofevil

A few fun facts about me:
- The #1 song on the day I was born was "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley, which means my life is a Rickroll.
- I have three black cats and one black dog, but it's not an obsession, I swear.
- I am a full time writer these days, which means I will never wear a pair of heels to the office again. Viva la sweatpants!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grief and the Union do not go together 10 Nov. 2013
By humanitysdarkerside VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
"Dark Union" sure is a fitting title, because the Union of kopis and apsis sure is dark and its motives are suspect. You don't just round up kopis and apsis and witches by force unless you are a bit iffy. Where do they get their money from? There cannot be all that many Mr. Black type kopis - at least not if they are doing their jobs the way they are supposed to. But messing with friends of Elise might not be the smartest thing these guys have ever done. Especially not an Elise that is bursting with anger from all that happened in Darkest Gate.

Elise and Anthony are angry with each other, angry with the world and angry with the sense of helplessness that they feel. We are like that sometimes. Helplessness, grief and confusion are bummer feelings to have so anger can be a tempting feeling to replace them with. We get a lot of anger in "Dark Union". A lot of it.

On top of that Elise has to struggle with this new strange bond that she and James have managed to impose on themselves. They actually know what the other person is feeling and can see what they are doing if they think too much about the other person. No wonder James is in San Fransisco with Stephanie. What an awful thing to experience for humans. Especially for some one as private as Elise is. They are both trying to control the bond, but when her pain is too great it becomes a bit difficult for Elise to control how much she shares.

Anthony is finally beginning to realise that he wants more out of their relationship than Elise is willing and able to give. Another thing to add to the simmering pot of feelings.

I'm trying to figure out if anything happy happens in "Dark Union". Let's see. There is one thing. At one point Elise is challenged about her "greatest kopis" status.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sword and her shield 6 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
"The relationship between a kopis and an aspis is more permanent than marriage; more fatal than family, closer than the oldest friends" says McIntyre - kopis in this novel. Unfortunately the rift between James Faulkner (aspis) and his kopis (Elise) is widening. James is away meeting his girlfriend Stephanie's parents and Elise has no alternative but to continue her task as kopis with the assistance of her boyfriend, Anthony.

Anthony is grieving for the loss of his cousin Betty (see the Darkest Gate) and is pressing Elise to marry him and start a family - his reaction to being told that she cannot have children is less than supportive and I started hoping that she'd simply dump him.

McIntyre's lies leads to the Union (of kopis and aspis)'s capture of Elise and Anthony prior to the bi-centennial meeting between the humans; infernals (demons) and the ethereals (angels).
My only complaint with this book was that it's too short!!
*I read the free epub version on smashwords. Review also published on smashwords.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again 8 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have spent the last 7 weeks reading this entire series and have to say it is the best most complete and compelling series of books I have ever read. From the 1st page your hooked and it becomes an obsession to find out what happens next, but it does not end with this series the books roll seamlessly into the ascension series which introduce characters from the other SM Reine books. These characters just meld straight in and are so fascinating that I now have the Cain series and the moon series to catch up on. This series is a must for anyone who likes this genre of books. Without doubt the best author out there, and will not disappoint.
