“I applaud your sense of honor, Captain. Although, I must say, blood for honor is a slippery slope indeed.”

Aella West, Blood for Honor

Trauma unlocks doors, and the demons of our past lurk behind them.

You must deal with your demons before they take you out, but beware! Nothing is ever as it seems. Deception is the adversary’s middle name.


Iylara Vance is the daughter of one of two war-clan Chiefs that rule the region, an indirect heir in her own right. When thrust into leadership unexpectedly, she is unprepared, confused, and scared, leading her to make what she feels is the best decision to save her people in the face of an all-out war. But things are not always as they seem, and the ramifications of trauma can be deceptive. Everything changes in the blink of an eye, leaving Iylara blindsided by the turn of events.

Decisions may determine life’s path, but is there such a thing as the point-of-no-return?

Love, longing, and fear drive the heart of the story, and deception lurks around every corner. Will Iylara be able to rise above the situations her life choices have brought on, or be overcome by her demons?


I am in the process of self-publishing. If you are interested in an ARC copy later in the year in return for an honest review, please email me at emmaleejoy@protonmail.com.
