Ever the Brave


Ever the Divided. Ever the Feared. Ever the Brave.

After saving King Aodren with her newfound Channeler powers, Britta only wants to live a peaceful life in her childhood home.

Unfortunately, saving the King has created a tether between them she cannot sever, no matter how much she’d like to, and now he’s insisting on making her a noble lady. And there are those who want to use Britta’s power for evil designs. If Britta cannot find a way to harness her new magical ability, her life—as well as her country—may be lost.

The stakes are higher than ever in the sequel to Ever the Hunted, as Britta struggles to protect her kingdom and her heart.

Erin Summerill

Erin Summerill loves the letter E. It’s the first letter in her name. It’s the most used vowel in the English language. And it looks good written on walls everywhere. When Erin was younger and her dad made her mow the lawn, she always left one spot untouched. A giant, grassy E. One time, when Erin was in the high school principal’s office, she stole borrowed a sheet off the principal’s E shaped notepad. When Erin was in college, she worked in the library. She shelved all books, not just ones starting with E because that would be ridiculous. But she might’ve considered it. Now, Erin spends her days using the other alphabet letters to form words and sentences and novels. Erin is part-Hawaiiian and raised in Hawaii, though now she and her family live just outside of Salt Lake City.
