Life after Life
Now Maggie has been given the chance of her after-life to become a Guard, nothing will stand in her way. Not even the undeniable attraction she feels for her trainer and past love—Jackson. But when the battle between Shadowed and Guard begins again which side will she choose?
When her boss, Felix, partners Jackson and Maggie up with Ally and Cooper to investigate terrifying Shadowed activity, she doesn’t think it could get any worse. Jackson and Cooper barely tolerate each other and this time, Maggie isn’t just proving her loyalty to the Guard during one mission...she has a side mission too. One so secret and so dangerous she can’t tell a soul...

Katlyn Duncan was born and raised in a small town in western Massachusetts. Her overactive imagination involved invisible friends, wanting to be a Disney Princess and making up her own stories. Her bibliophile mom always encouraged her love of reading and that stayed with her since. Even though she works full time in the medical field Katlyn has always made time for books, whether she is reading or writing them.

Katlyn now lives in southern Connecticut with her husband and adorable Wheaten Terrier and she is thrilled to finally share her stories with the world.

What gave you the inspiration to write this book? 
This was one of those strange things that just popped into my head one day. I pondered the idea of a “reaper” having to live in a human body and I developed it from there.

Who is your favorite character in the book? 
I don’t have a favorite because they are all my babies but I do love Cooper, he was one of my first characters and he hasn’t changed much in the process. He has been my steady companion from the beginning. 

Which came first, the title or the novel?
 Definitely the novel. It’s had many titles along the way but I love the theme that Carina UK chose with the titles. 

Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you’ve learned as a writer from then to now? I’ve learned how to manage my time, which is always important for deadlines. 

What do you like most about the cover of the book?
 The colors are gorgeous on the Soul Taken cover and I love Maggie’s figure on the Soul Possessed cover. 

What’s up next for you? 
I am currently working on Book 3 of the series which is very exciting and also quite bittersweet. 

Is there anything that you would like to add? 
I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my stories with the world and I appreciate each and every fan of my books.

  1. Thanks for hosting me today! :)

  2. I like the reaper idea as that is a cool area to explore and I like that one of the characters is named cooper, that is my sons name so neat to see that as I don't hear of many coopers

  3. I like the set up between the characters. It seems that a lot of great character development and interaction could happen.

  4. I've always been fascinated in books that take place in a world after our or the in between that one faces after death. This one seems to take on a unique spin of the Grim Reaper and it honestly sounds like an epic tale about a girl's journey between two worlds - the one she now belongs to and the one she used to belong to. Thank you for bringing this series to my attention and posting the giveaway!

  5. Sounds like a great read, great characters!! adding it to my TBR list!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  6. I'm interested to see how the series progressives, and am excited to hear about number three.

  7. I love anything to do with the afterlife. Gives me something to think about.

  8. I like the plot and I tend to like sequels to books so when it is a trilogy I am usually all for it!
