Gail Roughton about this book: In The Color of Seven, young attorney Ria Knight meets Paul Everett Devlin, the man whose image haunts her house. The man who currently resides—during the daylight hours, anyway—in a mausoleum in Rose Arbor Cemetery. The Color of Dusk reveals that a dank cave in the depths of Stone Creek Swamp doesn't still hold a splayed skeleton, mostly because a rotting stake isn't still lying against its rib cage. That skeleton's acquired new life. Cain, powerful bokor of black magic, banished to that cave in part by Paul Devlin, is back. Resurrected. Intent on revenge. And with Ria Knight's entry into Paul Devlin's life, revenge looks sweeter all the time. The past, like evil, never dies. It just—waits.
Publication of the first book in the Dark series, The Color of Seven and its concluding novel, The Color of Dusk, puts to rest a story that's haunted me for over twenty years. The first drafts of these works were completed in 1993. They've waited patiently in my closet for my writing skills to mature to the level where finally, I feel I've done this story and these characters justice. I hope my readers think so too.
