Blurb

Some stories are a fairytale...but this isn't one.

Caelan Gregory’s life fell apart the night he went home and opened the door to find his whole family murdered. Since then, his life has held no meaning. He’s angry. He’s bitter. He’s barely human anymore. There’s nothing left to remind him of the straight A student, and football quarterback he once was…but he wasn’t a good person then, and he’s certainly not a good person now. He’s retreated into a world where all that exists is numbness and his passion for painting.

When Sutton Hale moves into the apartment across the hall from Caelan she’s not prepared for her reaction to him. Something in his broken blue eyes calls to her—after all she’s always had an irrational need to fix everything.

But Caelan doesn’t do relationships or feelings. He does drugs and alcohol. However, he can’t ignore his desire to get to know the raven-haired woman across the hall.

Two broken souls trying to mend one another.

But not everything can be fixed.

In the end, Caelan and Sutton will have to learn that there is beauty in the ashes.

Review by: Erin 

Phenomenal! I knew going in that I would love this book. I am a huge fan of this author and have loved everything I have read of hers. However, I was not prepared for the level of emotion that she brought to the table with these characters. This storyline blew me away and left me in tears, breathless with my feelings. Every once in a while, you come across a book that will not only touch your heart, but will forever brand your soul. Royal Atlas is my soul marking book for 2016. This is not just a story, or a book. It is a journey, to be started with your heart fully open and ready to "feel" everything along the way. These characters (all of them, not just Molly and Guy) are everything. There are some LOL moments, some "aaawww" moments, and some epically tear worthy moments. If you do not read any other book this year, it MUST be this one. You will fall in love as deeply as I did.  

6 Stars 





Author Bio


Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
