2016 Endangered Cover Reveal


Endangered (Daughter of Hades #1)
by Dani Hoots

Genre: YA Urban Fantasy

Release Date: May 13th 2016

I proud to reveal my cover for Endangered (Daughter of Hades #1)! I am so excited to release this book to you all in less than two months! Please add it to your Goodreads “want to read” list! The preorder will be available in the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for that!

Summary from Goodreads:

Chrys has been in the Underworld for thousands of years, hidden away by her father, Hades, from all of the other gods. He’s afraid that if someone finds out about her, they will destroy her because of the dichotomous power that she holds, the power of life and death. So she has remained in the Palace of Hades all her life, making very few friends and always bored out of her mind.

Huntley would have never guessed that after he died he would wake up with a beautiful girl standing over him. And that she would be the Dark Lord of the Underworld’s daughter. Yet, for some reason, she keeps him around as her tutor, as if he knows anything about the world. But Huntley knows that all she really wants is a friend; being trapped in the Underworld can get pretty lonely.

That is, until Chrys decides she wants to run away to the human world after a big fight with her mother Persephone. Chrys claims her father is just over reacting and that nothing bad will come of it. There’s no way that the gods will notice she’s there for only a couple of days…right?

Hi everyone!

I wanted to let you know I have officially started my next series, Daughter of Hades (the first book came Endangered), and I can’t wait to share it will you all! Right now I am outlining and doing research, creating characters, and so on. It is about the unknown daughter of Hades who has been hidden from the rest of the gods because of her power.

I’m hoping to get the first draft written, edited, and sent off to content editors by the first of February. I’m having a lot of fun with this and hope you all will as well!

Merry Christmas! Here is my new free short story download called “Klopf” (pdf at the bottom of the post).  Feel free to share this story with friends and family and review it on Goodreads!

Back cover:

Hans Ritter is the last man alive, at least that is what he believes. Something had come out of the sky and destroyed everything he once loved and cherish. So far he hasn’t found anyone or anything that can help him, that is until he starts to hear knocking in the dead of night.

Here is the PDF, click the link for the download:



Klopf by Dani Hoots


Dust. And buildings. That’s all that was left of this place. That was all that could be left after what had happened. No life, no happiness, just death and destruction.

Except for one man, one lucky soul in all the land, at least he figured he was the last one alive. He still wasn’t sure and didn’t know how much was destroyed. For all he knew, it could only have been this place that was attacked. He had searched throughout the entire neighborhood and thus far had found nothing but rubble and rotten flesh. All his friends and family were gone, his neighbors and those he never got the pleasure of meeting. They were all gone in a blink of an eye. He didn’t know why or how he survived, but figured it had to do with him being a coward. Or a survivor, though sometimes there wasn’t much of a difference.
