S. Usher Evans is an author, blogger, and witty banter aficionado. Born in Pensacola, Florida, she left the sleepy town behind for the fast-paced world of Washington, D.C.. There, she somehow landed jobs with BBC, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic Television before finally settling into a "real job" as an IT consultant. After a quarter life crisis at age 27, she decided consulting was for the birds and rekindled a childhood passion for writing novels. She sold everything she owned and moved back to Pensacola, where she currently resides with her two dogs, Zoe and Mr. Biscuit. ...more

Depends on what you're looking for. If you're interested in a complete series, Razia's going to be your best bet. With Book 4 coming out this month, you'll be able to get through nearly all of Lyssa's adventures in a few days. Book 5 is a prequel novella, just a little bit more behind Lyssa's origins.

If you're looking for a stand-alone, Empath is a great place to start, but I warn you, it can get a bit heavy. It's based on my own struggles with anxiety and depression after a bad break-up, so it touches on those issues.

If you want to get lost in an angsty romance, The Island, coming in April, is a fabulous story. It's available for preorder now, but it should be showing up on NetGalley in March!

Thanks for the question!(less)

The Two Halves of Me

*blows dust off*

Been a while since I’ve cracked open the blog, eh?

But I had an epiphany this morning, and I felt it was better to do the long-form post than to post this on IG or whatever. So here we go.

But first, a bit of background…

If you’re new to Sushland, back in 2013 I ended things with a guy I thought I was going to marry. You can read more about how it all went down in Empath. More importa

What a ride this series has been. I love seeing a character grow before my very eyes. She had to make a lot of sacrifices and I was REALLY hoping for a happy ending between all parties but I’m happy with how this ended. Though sa" Read more of this review »
