First off, JL Campbell wants to know who my hero is to celebrate her new release. And here she is:
JOIN QUEENA. She's my hero because she presses on regardless of the obstacles in her way. And let me tell you, there are a lot. Once a vibrant teenager with a promising future, now she's confined to a wheelchair with very little use of her body, including speech. Normal everyday things that you and I take for granted everyday have been stolen from Queena. And I say stolen because she was attacked and left to die when she was eighteen. But she's still here, and she's amazing! I'll tell you more about Queena later, but for now, be sure to stop by her Facebook Page and say hello. She loves having new visitors.

Left in the desert to recuperate from her injuries, Sanaa Itami paces the floors and contemplates her mistakes. She trusted too easily, and now people she loved are dead, killed at the hands of men coming to assassinate her. Sanaa feels beaten, but life awaits her at home. While Nishikyō recovers from the earthquake, negotiations for Sanaa's eventual rule on Yūsei continue. New allies must be made, new friendships brokered, new skills acquired -- at all costs.
Life at the top of the chain is complicated and lonely, though. With relations in Sakai clan rocky and uncertain, Sanaa must learn to trust others again more than she's willing. Who amongst the clans is left holding a grudge? And will the new family Sanaa has found with Jiro support or betray her?
From Nishikyō to Yūsei, RELEASED, Book TWO of the Nogiku Series, is the second book in a captivating New Adult post-apocalyptic romance series that harnesses the cultures and traditions of Japan and sweeps them in the future.
