About the author:
Celina Summers was born and raised in Clarksville, Tennessee. While there, she became fascinated with languages and history while a high school student in the top Latin program in the nation. She continued her education in Tennessee, pursuing degrees in political science and communications. While there, she was a top collegiate debater and public speaker, and also began her lifelong love of theater-beginning with her studies under top dramaturge Howard Stein. After college, she went into professional theater, racking up credits as an actor, scenic designer, and director along the eastern seaboard. Her first fantasy series, The Asphodel Cycle, was originally published in 2007. The books in the series won numerous awards and nominations, including top ten placements in all four P&E Readers Polls for top fantasy and a prestigious Golden Rose nomination. Other publications include her sensual romance series Mythos, a short story collection Metamorphosis, and the Covenants Trilogy, co-authored with Rob Graham.

Celina has also been an editor for over a decade, the managing editor at two publishing houses, and the founder/editor of the speculative fiction magazine Penumbra. She is now focused solely on her writing career, and has branched out from traditional speculative fiction into contemporary literary fantasy under the pseudonym CA Chevault. Her only hobby is college athletics. She is a regular caller on the Paul Finebaum sports television show, and every Saturday in the fall is spent cheering on her beloved Tennessee Volunteers.

Celina is represented by the Cherry Weiner Literary Agency.

The Reckoning of Asphodel
 

Authored by Celina Summers
Edition: 1

Tamsen de Asphodel watched as her parents were killed-murdered by her sorcerer uncle. Raised by her Elven kin, Tamsen knows her destiny is to avenge them both.

Unfortunately, Tamsen's destiny is complicated. She is the sole heir to her human father's estate, but she is also the last remaining heir to the Elven throne. The Elves, especially the Scout Brial, are suspicious of her human ties and her magical power. Her magic is unique-neither human nor Elven, dangerous, and difficult to control. And when she and Brial fall in love, it is a relationship the Elves will not accept.

But when her uncle moves to destroy the Elves, war explodes across both kingdoms. Only Tamsen, with Brial at her side, can bring human and Elf together to fight against him. In the reckoning that is coming, she will need both sides of her conflicted nature...and the aid of a goddess.
