Book Description:
After paying two millennia’s penance to Osiris, world-weary Phoenix Ice has had enough. Saving souls without any hope for her own redemption isn’t how she imagined spending eternity. Fed up, she decides her next death will be her last. But when she sacrifices her own life for a sexy Texan in a catastrophic plane crash, she has no idea the consequences will be so great…or that she’ll end up back in his life for her next assignment.

Now that Turner Alcott has survived the worst, finding a wife and mother for his son matters more than ever before. When the mysterious Ice comes into his life, Turner knows she’s the one—but love is the last thing Ice wants. If he wants to win her heart, Turner must teach Ice how to forgive herself, and prove that love is the ultimate sacrifice.

A Day In the Life of a Goddess…
My name—for now—is Isha Nix, Ice for short, but my people knew me as Isis, mother of Egypt. I miss my homeland and the sweet life I destroyed. Now, with the help of my wards, I’ll spend an eternity saving the souls of people worthy of a second chance. It’s not a duty I want or agree with.

Here’s how my day is normally spent now Pre-Turner:
1.       Talk Sadie out of strangling random strangers.
2.       Reminding Arabella that no matter how many time she recites a spell, her voodoo magic is lost to her.
3.       Keep Giselle from controlling Sadie too much and from Ari’s sharp tongue.
4.       Searching for a way to piss off Osiris—or to find his favor. Either way works for me.
5.       Try to forget the evil things I did to my people while mourning my child… I’ll never get over that one.

About the Author:
Rachel Firasek grew up in the south and despite the gentle pace, she harassed life at full steam. Her curiosity about mythology, human nature, and the chemical imbalance we call love led her to writing. Her stories began with macabre war poems and shifted to enchanted fairytales, before she settled on a blending of the two.

Today you’ll find her tucked on a small parcel of land, surrounded by bleating sheep and barking dogs, with her husband and children. She entertains them all with her wacky sense of humor or animated reenactments of bad 80’s dance moves.

She’s intrigued by anything unexplained and seeks the answers to this crazy thing we call life. You can find her where the heart twists the soul and lights the shadows… or at www.rachefirasek.com .

Playlist Code for THE LAST RISING
Every author has their own quirk when writing and many will tell you not to listen to music with words while you’re writing. I happen to love my words, so I jam it out with a new playlist for each song. Often the songs will change before the story is finished, but the final result is the playlist that usually helped me the most.  If you’ve read The Last Rising, I think you’ll be able to tell where I was at in the story by each song on the list. I hope you enjoy my eclectic array of music.
And I’d love to know if any of these are  a fave for you, or if there is any song that I should check out!
