AllButHumanFATE – FIRE – SHIFTER – DRAGON

Book Five: ALL BUT HUMAN

Can a Fate and her dragon lover live a normal life?

Rysa Torres survived the hell of her Fate activation. She survived the weight of healing the wounds inflicted on her fiancé Ladon’s tattered soul. So how could her final year as a normal college student at a normal university be anything but… normal?

But sometimes the ordinary masks chaos. Sometimes, monsters lurk in crevices so deep not even a Prime Fate like Rysa—or bloodhound Shifter like her friend, Daisy Pavlovich—sense the coming attack.

When the worst Fates and Shifters on Earth come calling for one last dance, Rysa must fight—and embrace the darkness within her paranormal heritage.

Will her heart—and her soul—survive?

An insane Shifter stole Rysa’s talisman, jacked her body, and caused her abilities to nova. Now, she wastes away in front of Ladon’s eyes and he can’t stop the power that’s eating her alive.

Watching her anguish triggers flashbacks. When Ladon’s soul ruptures, only Rysa holds the cure he needs. But she’s too far away to stop what’s eating him alive.

With the help of the newly-healed, newly-invincible Derek, Rysa runs from the worst Fates and Burners on the planet as she desperately tries to heal Ladon—and herself.  Can she solve their problems—and recover her talisman—before the long immortal find their prey?

Rysa’s out of control abilities are eating her alive.  No one—not Ladon and Dragon, nor their sisters—dare stand within thirty feet of the lethal power her body exudes.  But when Ladon’s ruptured past consumes his mind, only Rysa holds the cure he needs.

 

But she’s out of his reach.  

And she’s wasting away.

To make a bad situation worse, an old Fate family caught Rysa’s scent.  Now she must find the answers to their problems—and recover her talisman—before a Roman Emperor finds his prey.

With the help of the newly-healed, newly-invincible Derek, Rysa plays a game of cat and mouse with the worst Fates and Burners on the planet.  And maybe—just maybe—they will all come out alive.

How Ladon Got his PTSD

Flux of Skin (FFSD Book #2)

Flux of Skin (FFSD Book #2)

I’ve talked about how Rysa, the heroine of the Fate ~Fire ~Shifter ~Dragon universe, is based on a real young woman with real Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  The ADHD symptoms Rysa shows—the jumping, the inability to sequence, the internalizing—are all true to life.

She’s not the only character with issues.

I didn’t originally intend for Ladon to suffer as much as he does in the first trilogy.  I figured that all the long immortal—all the characters in the Fate ~Fire ~Shifter ~Dragon universe who have lived beyond a normal life span—would have some sort of trauma they needed to deal with.  You live long enough as a warrior and after awhile, stuff’s going to be hard to take.

I figured that was the case with Ladon.  That he’d developed ways of dealing and that he’d have his “issues,” and that they would become the engine of some of the story’s conflict.

Then I wrote this passage, from Chapter Nine of “Games of Fate”:

 

Against his chest, Rysa’s breath hitched. Her lip fluttered and her eyes grew huge. And Ladon knew all the pain he felt moving through her body was his fault.

Twenty-three centuries he and Dragon had fought battles and dealt with Burners. Twenty-three sets of one hundred year intervals, a meaningless measure of time for someone who’d lived through so many of them. Yet, they’d persevered and done what they were supposed to do. Every single one of those actions and reactions dropped onto their heads like a grain of sand blown in from the desert. Twenty-three centuries and sometimes Ladon wondered if he still had the strength to move through the dunes of his life.

 

I sat back and stared at what I just typed.  And I knew Ladon didn’t just have “issues.”  Ladon has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

PTSD is very different from ADHD.  A good chunk of Rysa’s issues stem from how the world reacts to her.  Ladon’s PTSD, on the other hand, stems from his mind and his body reacting to stimuli that are no longer in the world.  It’s internal.  It’s personal.

And it’s really, really shitty.

I decided not to deny what claws at the insides of my character.  I decided that, like Rysa, Ladon’s is a voice that needs to be heard, though his is more common.

Fate ~Fire ~Shifter ~Dragon belongs to both Rysa and Ladon.  It belongs to their entwined journeys out of what haunts their souls.  And it’s about how they’re going to save not just each other, but the world.
