I don’t believe in destiny. A few years ago I met a guardian (guardians are sort of like angels, but not) named Quintus. He believes I have a destiny and that my path is laid out in front of me. In fact, he has a lot of ideas about what I should or should not do and who I should or should not see. And maybe he’s right. Maybe I can’t do anything to change what the future holds, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop trying.
Destiny to me takes away my free will—my ability to choose. Perhaps having been born a guardian means I don’t have any free will to begin with. But if that were the case, how did I fall in love with Holden? Holden is a jinni who works in direct opposition to guardians. Where we create, he destroys. Where we love, he hates. Where we forgive, he avenges. I should be repulsed by him, but instead he is like gravity. No matter how many times I jump, I always fall back to him.
Quintus doesn’t understand. I’m not sure that I understand either, but I know if destiny exists and if my destiny is what Quintus says it is, then it’s not absolute and my future has yet to be determined.
My name is Olivia Martin and I am no one’s foregone conclusion.

Book Two The Guardian Trilogy
By Liz Schulte
Hearts break. Loved ones are lost. Life keeps moving.
Olivia Martin’s afterlife was more dangerous and confusing than her life ever was. She thought she was ready to come back, to forget about Holden and to let go of the rage consuming her. Fulfilling her destiny as a guardian was all that mattered—the past could stay hidden in the crevices of her mind. However, when guardians are murdered and the evidence points towards jinn, she has to do something. To save anyone’s future, Olivia will have to confront the one person from her past she is terrified to see.
Holden waited for Olivia with the hope he would see her one more time. But when she didn’t return, he found salvation in darkness. The black and twisted road made it easier to forget what he lost than to live with the memory of what he had. An unexpected promotion shoves him into a world of intoxicating power and influence. Holden will have to choose between his new life and the woman he thought was gone forever.
From the ashes of Secrets, Choices are born that will change everything.

About the Author:
Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.
When Liz isn’t writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between.
Liz would love to hear from you and what you thought of Dark Corners.
