Hey, I’m Asher. Rebel angel with gleam in his eye, a smirk on his lips, and a vendetta against the Order. I believe in passion and chaos—and the ability to be the master of your own destiny. I always have a witty retort or a quip handy to shoot back at you, but don’t be fooled. I’m a big softie on the inside. Especially when it comes to Skye, who I’ve been sent to Earth to guide and protect—and, when the time comes, show her how to use her powers of the dark. Neither side knows how her powers will manifest—whether they’ll lean more towards the dark or the light. The Order wants to control her, but the Rebellion knows she can be great. She’s like a ticking timebomb ready to explode—and so is my heart. The hardest thing for me to do is admit defeat.
But now that I’ve met my match in Skye, looks like it’s only a matter of time before one of us caves—and then I’m in trouble. Because love complicates things. Love can sway the outcome of a war.
NOBODY KNOWS I AM: Still punishing myself for a mistake I made a long, long time ago. Well, one person knows—but I trust she’d never tell anyone. I let someone close to me get hurt, and I can never forgive myself for that. It’s why I have to fight so hard to protect Skye. So I don’t make that same mistake again.
I WISH I COULD STOP: Making jokes all the time to hide the fact that I’m really a vulnerable guy. It’s not easy being tall, dark, handsome, and sensitive, let me tell you.
I’M A SUCKER FOR: A girl who gets my razor-sharp wit and can dish it back to me without blinking. No, I’m not thinking of anyone specific.
A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: Sitting on the roof with Skye, staring up at the stars, laughing at that little crease she gets between her eyes when she’s worried. (See: “I’m a sucker for…”)
NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: Study. Because I don’t like to study. That kind of thing is for rules-obsessed Guardians. Being prepared is boring. I like to live dangerously.
I’D REALLY RATHER: Be making out with Skye. What can I say?
THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: Hey, no two days are the same. Life’s full of choices, you have to just wake up and see where the day takes you. I do check up on Skye though. She can take care of herself–that’s what I love about her. And yeah, she’s got her friends by her side all the time. But I can’t focus on anything else if I don’t know she’s safe. Especially not after…well, let’s just say there’s a certain Guardian out there that I don’t trust as far as I can spit. And who knows what he’s capable of.
KILL / FRAK / MARRY:
Kill: I’d like to start out by saying that I would never kill anyone on purpose. Rebels believe in free will, in chaos and passion. Destruction can be a good thing, but only if it’s designed to bring about renewal and change and I–wait, you know what? Britney Spears. I sang “Baby One More Time” once at Karaoke and it still makes me cringe.
Frak: Heh. Miley Cyrus. It’s the “y’all”. Southern girls have that feisty thing.
Marry: Selena Gomez. Don’t you think she looks a little like Skye, with all that long dark hair? Skye can’t sing to save her life, though. It’s adorable. Don’t tell her I told you.

About the Book:
When she wakes up in unfamiliar surroundings, Skye knows something terrible has happened to her. But it’s not until she hears Asher, the dark, rebellious angel she fell in love with, that the memories come flooding back. She tries to put the past behind her, but she knows she’ll be forever haunted by the ruthless betrayal that almost took her life.
Skye returns home, but with the knowledge of who she really is, nothing can ever be the same. As she tests the limits of her newfound powers, Skye discovers that she’s capable of far more than anyone could have imagined. Both the Order and the Rebellion want her for their side as war between the factions looms. She can’t forget the terrifying truth she now knows about the Order, but something holds her back from embracing the Rebellion.
A Fractured Light picks up right after A Beautiful Dark’s shocking cliffhanger ending and is perfect for fans of Lauren Kate’s Fallen and Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush, Hush saga.
