In a wild escape to avoid becoming the sixth victim of the elusive Rocky
Mountain Murderer, twenty-two-year-old Riley Dale finds herself flung
into a universe parallel to her own, where Las Vegas is known for its
churches, terrorist attacks are initiated by the United States, and
peace can be found in the darkest corners of the globe.
As the deadly visions that have haunted her since childhood become real,
Riley is confronted with the implausible story of a world split in
two and the stark contrast between good and evil in people she
thought she knew.
Racing deeper into the mystery of the new world, Riley discovers the
explosive truth about her ancestors who have been hunted for
thousands of years because of a single mistake made long ago.

Safe in her own world, Riley Dale should finally be able to put the
horrifying experience in the parallel universe behind her. But as she
processes recent events, business as usual is not an option. Her
allies are still in big trouble.
To rescue her friends, Riley ventures back into the parallel world she
had tried so hard to escape from. As her path winds through a maze of
twisted history and familial legend, she finds herself blocked by
both her attitude and insecurities, as well as by her enemies.
As each version of the world and her opponents grow more volatile, Riley
must cast aside her own weakness and accept the mantle of Electa if
she can ever hope to save humanity from a devastating end.
Riley’s allies are scattered, broken, or dead. In one universe, an army
stands ready to destroy the East. In the other, a biological weapon
threatens to wipe out the West. Despite the looming devastation, she
is no closer to restoring balance to humanity.
As Riley trains to use the ring her grandmother left her and works to
find a way to bind the worlds, terrifying new visions plague her.
Unearthed betrayals lead Riley to painful truths and hopeless
revelations about those she thought she could trust.
As her enemies circle and her friends falter, Riley must race to find
answers lost to ancient memory in the sands surrounding what was once
the Garden of Eden. Healing the world may demand she sacrifice all
she holds dear—even her own chance to witness the peace she’s
fought so hard for.
Debut author R.S. Dabney’s passion for reading, writing, and exploring
thrilling stories about unlikely heroes conquering evil started at a
young age, culminating in the completion of her first novel, The Soul
Mender, book one in The Soul Mender Trilogy. Her favorite books span
every genre and she likes to describe her own work as having
something for everyone—a sprinkle of suspense, a dash of adventure,
and a whole lot of good versus evil.
R.S. grew up running around the red rocks and ravines in the deserts of
southern Utah, building forts, fighting battles, and living the lives
of all the characters she and her friends created. An avid lover of
all things nature and the outdoors, R.S. attended Texas A&M
University where she majored in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation and
minored in Park and Natural Resource Management. She worked for the
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for three years before leaving to
pursue her dream of writing a novel.
She currently lives in the Big Bend region of Texas with her husband, two
dogs, and cat. When she isn’t lost in another dimension creating
havoc for her characters and stories, she enjoys mountain biking,
exploring the desert, and eating way too much Mexican food.
