Deleted scenes:
Most of what has been cut from the books was done so for very good reasons. That said, there are a few scenes that I hated to scrap, even if they were flawed or didn’t fit. Here are a few I think readers of the series might enjoy.

From Unforeseen:

The prologue that wasn’t meant to be.

You can’t send a male to do a female’s job.

From Unveiled: (No major spoilers, but read at your own risk!)

Her gift had become a curse.

“I will not be babysat by my own warriors.”
