Battle for Souls series
After witnessing the death of her mother, Gabby Moore suffers with psychotic delusions. When fallen angel Alexander Lohr reveals she’s been marked by a demon, she must make the ultimate choice or lose her mind. She can fight alongside her father, an earthbound hunter killing fallen angels and demons, give into the demon blood coursing through her veins and join the underworld, or save the man she loves from both.
“I really enjoyed this book and the characters in it. Gaby and Alexander have two wonderful characters, both filled with love and loyalty. Both are willing to fight for those they love. There are secondary characters that are equally great and I would love to read about them in future books in this series. This is a book that can be enjoyed not only by young adults but by adults as well.”

“This story consumed me from the exciting beginning to the very satisfying ending – to the point that I even dreamed about fallen angels and epic battles between good and evil. “

“Once you start reading Rise from Darkness be prepared to become addicted to it. It will have turning the pages and not able to put the book down! A great read! But beware of what you may not see just from reading the back of the book!”
5 Stars Undercover Book Reviews
Gabby Moore’s powers emerge years too early due to adolescent hormones, complications with loving a fallen angel, and constant demon attacks. She is forced to deal with the guilt of believing she murdered Alexander’s “mother,” while trying to stop the demonic war before it begins. Only the love and acceptance of friends, family, and her beloved Alexander can save her from turning to her demonic side.
“Fall From Grace picks up right where Rise From Darkness left off. I was so glad I got to read this book right after and not wait!!! Fall From Grace was a beautifully written story that drew me in from page one. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough!!! It was a real page turner. Ciara’s new take on angel lore is so interesting, and I haven’t read another book like it. I loved all the secrets and surprises that happen in this book. I was completely shell-shocked with a few things that I did not see coming. And boy oh boy, I got teary eyed with this one.”
5 Stars Amazon Review
“Wow, this book of the series is certainly one that has you sitting on the edge of your seat. You really never know who to trust who not to trust. So many are not what they seem to be and then when you think you know what they are, you are fooled again. The ending has a cliff-hanger but not one of those that you want to pull your hair out but just enough that you know you must read the next book. There is some closure and that’s a cool part to the ending. Definitely an awesome series, on to book 3.”
5 Stars Amazon Review
Gabby Moore fails to stop a demonic war which released condemned ancient angels and Lucifer’s minions to Earth. When all hope is lost, Herak, an Ancient sentenced to eternal solitude for starting the first demonic war, pledges to save the world. But is he really reformed and ready to fight, or will he betray Gabby and Alexander forcing them to sacrifice their love and each other to save the world?
“Gaby Moore is training to hone her powers, Alexander is torn between acknowledging how powerful she is and his instinct to protect her. Meanwhile the others provide the perfect backdrop for the last of the Battle for Souls series. It’s hard to describe anything in this book without spoiling it, but let me let you during and after reading this story, you will feel as if you fought alongside these bigger than life characters. Get this book, read it, live it and at the end let out a big breath, you’ll need it for the sweet way Ms. Knight ends this wonderful series.”
5 Stars Page Turner
“Absolutely loved this book!!! I’m not a YA kinda girl but I really enjoyed it. It was fast paced and still clean enough I’d let my kids read it. I liked the message that it’s good can overcome evil if you just know in your heart it’s the right thing. It was very detailed and made you wanna cheer on Gabby not to give up!”
5 Stars Amazon Review
“I always love when the final book in a series leaves me satisfied, and this one does just that. We finally learn just how powerful Gaby is and when she embraces it, she is unstoppable. I was holding my breath by the end, and I loved how it was completely unexpected, yet perfect.”

The Neumarian Chronicles
The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun. I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation. My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift. A gift I keep hidden even from myself. It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover. Will I have the strength to keep the secret? I’ll know the answer soon. If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.
“I’ve been reading quite a few novellas and novelettes as of late, and I have to say Weighted took the cake. It was ultra-gripping from beginning to end; I couldn’t peel my eyes from the page.”

“One word: intense! More than a bit scary but not “horror” dark (this reviewer doesn’t do the real dark stuff). For such a short glimpse into the world of the Neumarian Chronicles, this book is a power punch of freaking amazingness …. okay, maybe not a word, but you get the idea. I loved everything about this book. It’s suspenseful. It’s mysterious. It’s creative. It has the most likable and hate-worthy characters… and we have barely met them! 42 pages and I’ve not stopped thinking about them since I finished this two days ago. So my only complaint is that book 1, Escapement, isn’t out yet. It’s kind of cruel to leave me hanging like this. I want more!!!”
