Origins Series 

Empyrean Born

Humans like the saying “There are two certainties in life: death and taxes.” But what if I told you there’s a third? What if you found out you’re really not alone?

As an Empyrean Enforcer, I’m tasked with walking a fine line between peace and chaos in the human world. I’ve always done my best not to let the mystical Empyreal realm collide with the everyday, mundane existence most of you are accustomed to.

But then came the year 2020.

A rogue and dangerous Empyrean is behind the inexplicable and bizarre events plaguing the humans. I’ve been one frustrating step behind him. And there’s a problem–well, one more problem. I need to ask my ex for help.

Will old flames be rekindled? And what about Gabe, my fierce and loyal protector, the man I’ve lusted after my whole life? Will my heart or my brain win out? With all the skeletons I’ve kept locked up tight, your guess is as good as mine.

A note from the author: Though this book does not seek to make light of COVID-19 or trigger anyone with a personal experience with the virus, one of the settings is America in the year 2020, so COVID-19 is mentioned and acknowledged throughout the story.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Wow! This book pulled me into a world I hadn’t expected. M. K. Hall has a writing style which is edge of your seat exciting, sexy, and keeps you wanting more.” ~ Reader Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “The noirish atmosphere is convincing, and the main character’s earthy, bantering voice adds humor and relatability to the story. This story takes place in 2020, and Hall makes good use of the real-life craziness of that year to set the tone for her novel. Strongly recommend.” ~ Reader Review

Empyrean Queen

Some say you can never go home. I assure you, you can.

And I did.

But upon my return to the Empyrean realm, I’m met with even more danger lurking in the deepest, darkest shadows threatening to destroy us all. Everywhere I turn, betrayal isn’t far behind. Trust has become a precious commodity.

With demons of all kinds on the loose, the looming threat of war with Purgatory, and Gabe’s eternal damnation hanging in the balance, will I ever learn who I really am and where I came from?

Or will deeply buried secrets be my undoing?

Empyrean Queen is the final book in the Origins duology.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Since the moment I finished Empyrean Born, I was eagerly awaiting the release of Empyrean Queen, counting down the days until I could read more about Val and Gabe! Let me tell you, this book was well worth the wait! From page one, I was immediately hooked!” ~ Reader Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Exceptional conclusion to the Origins series! The characters, scenery, and battles are so well written I can visualize them playing out like a movie. I enjoy trying to figure out where a story is going and I was pleasantly surprised when the twists and turns were so much better than I could imagine.” ~ Reader Review

About the Author

MK Hall is the author of Empyrean Born and Empyrean Queen, an urban fantasy duet. She has several more stories in progress, from high fantasy to sci-fi, all with an element of self-discovery and love. Her ultimate goal is to create elaborate worlds readers can become entirely lost in. After all, who doesn’t need an escape from reality for a while? 

When she isn’t writing, she’s busy with her newly established editing business, working on the editing team for anthologies published by Sand Kittens Press, Inc., and wrangling her brood of furbabies. She lives in the heart of the Midwest with her husband of 25+ years and has a (relatively) healthy obsession with all things cats, adores dogs, and absolutely loves connecting with readers.
