-Book Summary:
With powerful abilities gained from the Ang’dora and Tristan back by her side, Alexis thinks she’s ready for the next challenge— protecting her son from what appears to be the inevitable. But she has so much to learn about her powers, her new world and the people in it. Nothing is what it seems to be on the surface, including the Amadis.
Power-hungry politicians comprise the council and make impossible demands. A traitor lurks among them all, inciting trouble that could destroy the Amadis and, ultimately, humanity. The Daemoni wreak havoc in the human world, with the ultimatum that they’ll continue attacking innocents until Alexis and Tristan are expelled from the Amadis’ protection. The couple’s own society begins to shut them out. But that’s not all.
Someone’s keeping a secret. A big one. Faith and hope in Alexis and Tristan will be restored if she can uncover the truth in time.
But the search for answers leads only to the discovery of more betrayals by those closest to Alexis. Her devotion is put to the test—devotion to her husband, to her family, to her people and to her beliefs—leaving her to question whom she’s fighting for and why she should even bother. But if she won’t fight . . . who will?

-Purchase Devotion:

I had the opportunity to as Tristan, yes sexy Tristan, one question about the topic of devotion. Here is what I asked and his response.

QUESTION: Is there anything that could/would cause you to betray your closest friends and family?

Tristan: The Amadis comes before everything. I have sacrificed myself, to the detriment of my wife and son, for the greater good of the Amadis. I betrayed Alexis and Dorian’s trust that I will always be there for them, to love and protect them. I have to live with that for the rest of my life. Would I betray them again? I hope I’m never put in that situation again, but if I am, well, God first, then Amadis, then my family. That’s how it is for all of us.

  1. I know it's a good cause to be fighting for, but that just seems to really suck. Not being able to put your family first--in fact they come in THIRD! It's got to be really hard for him.


    1. Yeah, it does suck. Glad humanity's future isn't based on MY decisions like they are on his. We'd all be in trouble. LOL

  2. Thank you for being part of the tour!

    Good luck to everyone!

  3. It's heatbreaking to have to betray the ones your cherish but sometimes you have to do it protect the ones you love. Tristan is such an honorable character that you can't but crush over him.

    This a story you can story you can read over and over. You rock Kristie. Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Ever answer Tristan gives makes me love him more. It's so sad that he feels like he betrayed Alexis and Dorian when the truth is, he did what he did in part to protect them and all of humanity. If that's not a noble cause, I don't know what is. Love this guy! <3

    1. Aw. He is a good man, whether he wants to believe it or not.

  5. I agree with all the above comments... Tristan is truly amazing & I wish every girl had a guy like that... </3


  6. Sigh......I'd hate to say either way whether or not I could betray someone. The circumstances always matter.

  7. Groan...this is one of those, look in the mirror type questions. I would hope the answer would be no, based on my heart, faithfulness and sence of loyalty. I would hope that I would face any challenge bravely, with conviction (and not pull a Peter)! That would be devistating. Tristan grieves deeply for missed time with his family and years of longing and sorrow for them on his account. But you know what? I can't help but be proud of his devotion! He lived placing the good of others before himself, and he did return, as he promised!, USA

  8. Every comment on here I 100% agree with. Tristan is an amazing man. In my real life my husband is my tristan. Sometimes life choices are made to protect the ones you love. Even if they don't understand it. Love your books Kristie.

  9. Like everyone else I agree that Tristan did what he had to do to protect his family and there is nothing better than a man that does what's best for his family. Very sad he still feels like he betrayed them. Hopefully by the end he will learn to know he's fully good!
    Thank you kristie!!!

  10. Totally agree with all the above comments....Tristan is quite the man!

  11. I wouldn't betray my closest family/friends.


  12. Thanks for all the great comments guys! This really is one of my favorite series and Tristan is an AMAZING character! Kristie is fabulous!

  13. Catching up on this tour. Nice blog you have :).

  14. I would hope to never be placed in that situation. I feel it would depend on the circumstance at hand and the overall impact...greater good.

    Thank you for a great giveaway!

  15. My first instinct is to say no, nothing would make me betray my friends and family. But after thinking about it, how could I not agree to betray them if it would save lives? So I guess the answer is really yes.

  16. New to me Author and Books but I would love to read all of these books.

  17. I haven't betrayed any of my family or friends. Not my real friends anyways.

    Great blog post. Love your design as well!

  18. No. I have never been tested on this, but I don't believe the ends justify the means, so to speak.

  19. I dont really know this book yet, but i so wanna read it....
    Thanks for the giveaway.


  20. Well said Tristan. Its bittersweet!
