Book Description:

Having left her life at Acorn Hills behind, Ember tries to pick up the pieces of her heart at home in Scotland. Reuniting with old friends, working a normal job, hiding her fangs...

But while fake smiles fill her days, nightmares plague her nights, re-opening the wounds she's tried so hard to heal.

Left behind in Acorn Hills, Reid spirals into a deep depression, becoming more and more self-destructive. Until Hiro takes pity on him and comes up with a solution to the hollowness left by Ember's absence: get her back.

With the way Ember left, Reid knows it won't be easy to win back his Firefly, but he will do it. He has to.

Otherwise, an eternity without her isn't something he could live with.

Reid was in
jail. Not the first time, probably not the last. He was there mostly by choice
anyway; if he’d wanted, he could have compelled the police officer who’d pulled
him over for drunk driving to let him go.
He’d been
driving recklessly on his motorbike, almost hoping for a crash; A few broken
bones, a splintered tree, pain that could be quantified and fixed with simple
medication, unlike the gaping wound where his heart used to be.
He’d thought
that being in a cell would distract him, give him something else to think about
other than the burning pain inside him, seeing as the drink hadn’t numbed it,
but he’d been wrong. Of course he’d been wrong. He couldn’t remember the last
time he’d been right, felt right.
Reid sighed,
staring at the dull, grey ceiling of his cell. But staring at the dirty stone
ceiling of his cell was no different than staring at the white ceiling of his
dorm room, except that here there was no chance of Ricky showing up to stare
mournfully at him through those pitying green-blue eyes of his.
And that was
another reason Reid had chosen to spend the night behind bars; He was avoiding
Ricky. Avoiding everyone actually, but Ricky especially. He’d been avoiding
Ricky all day, in fact. It was why he’d gone out to the bar, and spent hours in
the pool before that. Why? Because Ricky knew what day it was, and he’d likely
have something to say about his moping, maybe even have planned something for
it, and Reid just wasn’t in the mood.
It was the 9th
of May. This day last year had been awesome, the year before that even better
but this year…Reid just wanted to sink into a drunken oblivion and he couldn’t
even do that.
The fact that it
was his birthday didn’t excite him, it just depressed him further. His
eighteenth birthday. It was a big event for humans, almost even bigger for a
born vampire like himself. Born vampires stopped aging at eighteen.
After today,
Reid wouldn’t age another day, ever. He was stuck like this forever. He would
always have the face of an angel, carefully toned muscles, and hair like golden
silk that would never go grey. It wasn’t a bad way to look for the rest of
eternity…it just didn’t mean anything to him anymore.

His own
appearance didn’t matter when he still had images of her burned into his brain.

Interview with HG Lynch

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?
Oh I never have the reins, especially with the Unfortunate Blood series. Reid and Ember were entire characters from day one, and they knew where they wanted to go.
Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.
If you’ve read the rest of the series, you’ll know that this book is going to be an emotionally charged read. If you’re not familiar with the series, the best I can describe it is like Vampire Diaries meets Supernatural. Ember is a fierce heroine, Reid is a stubborn but golden hearted stud, and their romance and adventures are equally unpredictable and wild. Everything they do is on the edge of insanity, and it makes them and their friends unstoppable.
My book is a must-read for anyone who ever wanted to crawl inside a book and have the magic surround them for real.
Have you written any other books that are not published?
Most of my finished work is published, but I have a few I’m working on that may or may not be published in the end.
Pen or type writer or computer?
In school, I wrote mostly on paper (during Maths class usually) but now I use my laptop. It’s just easier and quicker.
Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans?

I love you all, and I hope you all have enjoyed the thrill ride of Ember and Reid’s journey as much as I have.
