Through the Water by Shannon Myers is available now!
Ten years ago, I saved his life.
The daughter of a megachurch pastor, I always assumed that the walls were there to protect me. Now, I see that they’re meant to hold me captive. My father’s followers were my family, his church my home, and his teachings my law.
When Killian re-entered my life, I was nineteen. A lost soul in need of a savior. He started out as a distraction. A distraction that quickly grew into compulsion. I tried to stay away, but he stirred up something within me that was more real than anything I ever experienced inside the church.
What happens when a girl from the inside falls in love with a boy on the outside?
He’s a baseball player, known around the entire world, and I’m—well, I’m nothing more than a hostage of my faith.
Perhaps it’s fitting that his name means church as he is my sanctuary.
Ten years ago, I saved his life. If only he could save mine.
Through The Water is the second book in the Fairest series, but can be enjoyed as a complete stand alone.

This story was emotional in the best of ways.
Ariana’s life has been full of emotional manipulations. I can’t believe she came out normal out of such harrowing experiences. I love her naivety while also being absolutely scared for her. I just really adored her and wanted her to get her HEA.
Killian had such a tremendous growth in the story and I really loved his journey. His love for Ari was so innocent and pure and I adored them together.
While the story was beautifully written, I couldn’t fully connect to it. I just kept thinking something was missing but couldn’t put my finger on it. The book is really raw, emotional and full of an epic love. Being new to Shannon, I think it was a really good introduction to her writing. I’m really looking forward to more from her.
About the Author
Shannon is a born and raised Texan. She grew up inventing clever stories, usually to get herself out of trouble. Her mother was not amused. In junior high, she began writing fractured fairy tales from the villain’s point of view and that was the moment she knew that she was going to use her powers for evil instead of good.
In 2003, she moved to Denver and met the love of her life. After some relentless stalking and a few well-timed sarcastic remarks, the man eventually gave in to her charms and wifed her so hard. They welcomed a son in 2007 that they named after their favorite Marvel superhero, Spiderman.
Sick of seeing beautiful mountains through their window every day, the three escaped back to the desolate landscape of the west Texas desert in 2009. She welcomed her second son not long after and soon realized that being surrounded by three men was nothing at all like she’d imagined in her fantasies.
After an unplanned surgery in 2014 and a long pity party, she decided to pen a novel about the worst thing that could happen to a person in order to cheer herself up. She’s twisted like that. Thus, From This Day Forward was born and the rest, as they say, is history.
Not only does Shannon enjoy stalking people, she also has a fondness for being stalked. Find her on your favorite social media site to keep up with the latest schemes and shenanigans.
