Blurb for Downfall
Frankie’s cousin wants her to do three things this year:
1. Lose her inhibitions
2. Do something spectacularly stupid
3. Fall madly in love
Travelling was Frankie’s life. As the daughter of a big name evangelist, she’s been able to feed her hunger for new sights throughout most of her teenage years. Then a hushed up scandal gets her thrown off the tour circuit and stuck at her uncle’s house in the town of Augur’s Well.
Forced to repeat her failed senior year, it looks like a dismal existence for Frankie—until she’s invited to the bizarre meeting place of four mismatched people … and falls hard for the fascinating, secretive Cain Aleister.
Furtive meetings in an underground chamber … Latin words carved into a stone wall … intense desire … and a secret so elusive she’ll do almost anything to bust it open. Until now, Frankie never believed in grand passions—but that’s not the only one of her beliefs about to implode right before her eyes.
Looks like Frankie’s going to score three for three.

Author’s comments on the cover:
For Downfall’s cover, I originally thought I would like to see something a little Twilighty or Trylle, perhaps a locked gate and a fallen apple, representing ‘forbidden fruit’ somehow. But this image just stopped me in my tracks. I love what the cover artist, the talented UK-based Jay Aheer, has done with the light, bringing a kind of oil painting luminescence to the picture. It simply glows. To me, the cover perfectly represents the themes in Downfall: Frankie’s innocence and coming of age, and the spiritual and emotional ‘baggage’ she carries that colours her perception of her world. It shows Frankie letting go, falling into the unknown — the realms of the uncanny, of love and of self-discovery.
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
