Foreword Clarion Reviews (rated Blood of Toma 4 stars)

Running from death seemed unnatural to the Mexica High Priestess Tomantzin, but run she does. She escapes to the jungle after witnessing her father’s murder amidst a power struggle within the Mexica Empire and fears for her life. Instead of finding refuge in the jaguar’s land, she falls into the hands of glimmering gods in search for glory and gold. With her nation already on the brink of civil war and its pending capture by these gods who call themselves Conquistadors, a bloody war is inevitable. Tomantzin must choose to avenge her father, save her people, or run away with the man she is forbidden to love.

Available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble as paperback or ebook

About the Author

In 2008 as she spent her days in the hospital bed watching her short life almost surrender to death, Lauren discovered her purpose, her core value, her reason to keep fighting and what difference it made: To Hope.
That’s it, to hope, nothing more.
Without hope, there is no light at the end of the tunnel, there is no tear at the end of a tragedy, there is absolutely nothing. And thus she promised herself that every day she would make a difference, to give people hope, to change a life for the better by loving as she was loved. Then as she discovered a passion for writing, she knew no better way to carry out this promise than by sharing this purpose with others through her written work. In each of her stories there is different underlying belief of which she bases her purpose. Do you want to uncover the belief she wants to share with you through her tales about the end of civilization or a twisted serial killer?
