Praise for Blind Salvage

“If you love the early Anita Blake novels by Laurel K. Hamilton, you will fall head over heels for The Rylee Adamson Series. Rylee is a complex character with a tough, kick-ass exterior, a sassy temperament and morals which she never deviates from. She’s the ultimate heroine. Mayer’s books rank right up there with Kim Harrison’s, Patricia Brigg’s, and Ilona Andrew’s. Get ready for a whole new take on Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance and be ready to be glued to the pages!”

-Just My Opinion Book Blog

“Mayer creates heroes you love and enemies you hate, weaves edge-of-your action that leaves you breathless, and includes enough plot twists and turns to keep you guessing all the way ‘til the last page.

BLIND SALVAGE made me doubt everything I knew about Rylee’s best friend Milly from earlier stories. It takes an incredibly talented writer with a well-plotted story arc to take a reader from wishing a villain was dead, to understanding more of what made them do the awful things they did in the first place.

Death, mayhem, intrigue, fighting side-by-side with Ogres… this latest addition to the series has all of that and more. Readers will feel exactly as I did when the book ended – they’ll want more! Excellent work, Ms. Mayer!”

-CJ Ellisson, USA Today & New York Times Bestselling Author

Another book done, and again, so many people to thank. My writers group (Writing In Progress) has been a huge support during these last few months. They have helped buoy my spirits and have kept me going even on those days I was frustrated with how things were going. Thank you for helping me through those days.

Melissa Breau and N.L. ‘Jinxie’ Gervasio, you two ladies have come through as always, helping me fine tune (and in some cases rip apart and re-write) this manuscript. I couldn’t ask for better editors, and better people to work with. Mere thanks will never be enough to express my gratitude to you both.

I’d like to acknowledge all my ‘non writing’ friends for their willingness to put up with my discourses on marketing, writing, and pretty much anything to do with this business. I know that it is boring to you, and so I appreciate that you let me ramble from time to time.

To my proofreaders, thank you for taking the time to help me make sure the final edits were as clean as possible. You know who you are, and you rock!

Thank you to Lysa for all you do, but above it all for helping me keep perspective on this crazy journey. You are amazing and I am grateful to call you not only a team member, but friend.

This was a harder book for me to write, (I suspect because it was the fourth book in as many months) and I would not have completed it without the love and support from my husband. You truly keep my head above water, keep my floating in the right direction, and help me to see that the world won’t come to an end if I don’t get 10k words written each day. Thank you for who you are, and all you do for me.

Author Introduction

The Rylee Adamson Novels are not written as standalone novels. While each book MAY be read on its own, to get a comprehensive understanding of characters and their interactions, I always advise to read the series in order. As the characters do make repeat appearances, I’ve decided to add in a state-of-the-art feature to refresh your memory when necessary.

In the Kindle edition of The Rylee Adamson Novels, the reader will come across occasional hyperlinks when a character first appears. Clicking on this underscored text will take the reader to a brief description of the character and how they relate to Rylee, for those interested in getting a reminder of characters and past events. Just hit your back button to return to the spot you were reading.

However, these links are in no way necessary to understanding and enjoying each book on its own or The Rylee Adamson storyline. The ebook format has allowed the opportunity to utilize this state-of-the-art functionality in a way that has been impossible in the print world. I hope this feature enhances your enjoyment of The Rylee Adamson Novels.

I hated saying goodbye almost as much as I hated Monday mornings. And this day had both of those brilliant things mashed together.

“Rylee, you don’t have to leave, you know that, right?” Will tried to capture my eyes with his. I avoided his seeking gaze and instead looked out across the pond, reliving recent memories as I stared. I could feel again the fear and adrenaline as the Beast ran me down, the crush of Eve’s talons as she snatched me from his grasp in mid-air. The specter of death had hovered close lately. How many times had I dodged his grasping hands since arriving on this side of the ocean? Nothing had gone as planned, so much death and pain … so much loss.
