Angel’s Rebellion is the final Creatures book. I wrote it alone.
My co-author will never read it.
In Vixen’s Fate one of the main characters ends up passing away with her best friend; their remains turn into a rosebush, with one red rose entangled together forever with one white rose.
Krisen came up with the idea. Her favorite flowers were roses. Today I bought a rose bush with the same color flowers her senior prom dress was. I planted it in my front yard and stood there and thought that I finally have a place where I can go to talk to her, because she doesn’t have a grave that I can visit.
Just like in Vixen’s Fate, now Krisen is a rosebush to me. That’s a representation of her soul growing in a place where I can be, because we’re so far away now.
It’s been ten years since I started writing Kiatana’s Journey with Krisen at fourteen years old. Now I’m 24 and the series is finally finished.
I’m angry that she’s not here to celebrate with me, because she should be. But we never can truly understand what people are going through, and for all my efforts, I could not save her. All I could do was try to keep her alive as long as I could.
June is never an easy month for me. This one even more so because now I have to say goodbye to a book series that I absolutely adore and love. There will be no more Creatures books. This is the final ending, and it almost feels like I’m losing her all over again, because the longer I kept stringing the series out it felt like the longer I could pretend like she was still here.
