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.

Tamsen must discover what gift can buy the redemption of the Elves--but she may not like the answer.
With Asphodel and the Elven Realm safe for a time, Tamsen de Asphodel dives headlong into the political turmoil. Her decision to wade into these shark-infested waters is complicated by the fact that she hasn't yet regained her strength from the magic she used to defeat her uncle, Spesialle. On top of that, Brial is none too pleased that Tamsen's pushing herself physically in the search for Ansienne's new king-or with their best friend's feelings for his wife. So when the Virgin Huntress sends them all on a new quest, Tamsen is haunted by the single question she must answer.
What gift can buy the redemption of the Elves?
In the end, Tamsen must determine if she has the courage and strength to give the right answer.
