The Gifts Trilogy
This trilogy is the continuation of the Curse Trilogy. If you've not yet read the Curse Trilogy (Gifted Curse, Forgotten Curse, & Lifted Curse), then Secret Gifts may have parts that are hard to follow.
Secret Gifts - Book 1
All grown up and ready to take on life, Aria Banner is facing the world her parents desperately sought to shelter her from. Centuries of oppression caused by the hands of her well-intended but smothering parents has left her with a hunger to prove herself. Just as badly as she wishes to move up in the United, she also wants to find that connection she grew up watching between her mother and father.
Being at war with the Unaligned makes it a little difficult to worry about her romantic life, but sometimes fate has a way of forcing you to pay attention.
Jase Ericson didn't intend to stumble upon the beauty he had only ever heard whispers of. When Aria locks eyes on the secretive full blood, she's instantly entranced - much to her surprise. The only problem is, she doesn't want to go through the same thing her mother once did.
Jase's secretive air makes him mysterious, intriguing, and exciting... until she learns the secrets he holds.
Tainted Gifts - Book 2
Broken and lost, Aria slowly starts picking up the pieces after the mess Jase left behind. It's hard to forgive someone when you know you're not meant to be together. Perhaps she just needed an excuse to get out.
Jase isn't one to go down without a fight, and he'll be damned if he loses Aria now. Not now. He loves her too much, and there's still so much he needs to tell her. But he wasn't expecting the masked man and what he represents.
In the end, Aria will have new secrets to keep, new lies to tell, and new truths to face.
Awakened Gifts - Book 3
If they want my blood, they're going to have to walk through hell to get it. And I'll be the devil waiting to collect their souls...
Betrayal escalates, hearts are entangled in fate's mistakes, and life as they know it shifts into a whirlwind of controversy. Blood becomes a weapon of war, a means to an end. And the life Aria has threatens to vanish before her eyes the second she finally starts to live.
The war within herself is only overshadowed by the war going on around her. It all closes in. All hell breaks loose. And everything they thought they knew is shattered by the truth.
