Announcing Abby Lane
I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be writing under the pen name of Abby Lane. The name Abby will be used for fantasy novels, and my real name, Shelley Kassian, will be used for all romance novels.
This means that I’ll be rebranding my Odin Saga with new covers and a new series title. Watch for all three books to be released in the second quarter of 2020.
A Reign of Blood and Magic

The Ebony Queen, Book 2

The Immortal Blood, Book 3
Available November. (#amwriting!)
Seeking resurrection, a forgotten god returns to the kingdom of Velez through a single drop of blood. He infiltrates the animal yolk and the cocoon of an undead king, bringing new new life and new worries to the kingdom of Velez.
But when the shell cracks, a new king with godly powers and a split personality desires retribution from the queen who stole his former life. Though he wants her dead, his alter ego, having no care for women either, needs the evil queen to exact his own revenge from the one who stole his life in the first place.
As the Ashburn King prepares to take the throne, how might the rise of a new age affect him, the royal family, or his mother, who has kept his secret from everyone. And will the ultimate revenge permit a low-born son to return to the kingdom.
