Guest Blog - The Creation of Arizona Storm by Lori Foster

     For Arizona, I read so many “real” reports of women recovered from human traffickers – and some who died while in captivity. One particular report stuck with me, because it was the rescued girl’s mother doing the interview. I felt her pain, her grief, her relief... it IS real. It’s happening. Modern day slavery is a crisis in our society.       I’ve never personally known anyone involved in human trafficking, but I’ve known other people who suffered great hardship. People are so incredibly strong, and most find a way to deal with their issues.

Unknown to Arieanna is the fact that Auron has been sent by a secret priesthood of St. Cisadore, and is actually there to protect her, the descendant of Ast’ at all cost.  Arieanna has no clue that a legend was foretold of a young woman being able to wield and use Ast`s infamous book of magick, and she certainly had no inkling that it would be her. Auron’s number one objective is to keep that book from entering the hands of the wrong people, in spite of t
