Imagine your life, and everything that makes you happy and everything you live for is all a façade. How would you react? What would you believe? Are your dreams your reality or is your reality just a dream?

Even though Kiyoshi isn't quite sure where he is, the one thing he is sure of is that here is exactly where he's supposed to be.

With only the vaguest of memories to tie him to the past, Kiyoshi has become completely enchanted with the primitive and isolated island that he now calls home. It took awhile (and a harrowing escape attempt or two) but with the help of Shelly, the devastatingly handsome, kind, and strong yet quiet man who rescued him, Kiyoshi is now quite settled.

World's End, the first book in the Tied By Fate series, takes you on a journey through time and space. Or, rather, outside of time and space.

M. LeAnne Phoenix would tell you that the worst time of her life was the two years that she attempted to take off from writing. If you asked her to explain exactly why she did such a thing, you would most likely get the mad attempt to arch an eyebrow like her dad and then a shake of the head as she told you it was unlucky to speak of such things. Suffice it to say, it will never happen again!
