Derrick, a former spy, has been asked to protect the sultry Sonja, a death metal singer whose magical voice grabs him by the balls and won’t let go. He’ll protect her, all right…with every part of his body tight against hers.

Sonja uses her voice to purge her fans of their darkness, their hate and hopelessness. But evil forces want to use her magic for their own ends. All she wants, at this point, is safety for herself and her band.

When Derrick and Sonja team up, Sonja does her best to resist the lure of safety he represents, until a radical league that wants her dead propels her into his arms. Will his help be enough? Or will she lose her heart to him, only to be killed in the process of saving the world?

Sonja’s Metal List

Super sexy swinging Sonja.  The client turned major crush from Slow Burn has her appeal not just to the hero of our story but to women everywhere as a strong, empowered female.  She’s seen in the story as not taking shit lying down.  She’s basically her own hero, and she’s had to be.  Life hasn’t been easy for her. With magical powers that terrorist organizations would love to control for their own nefarious purposes, she’s been on the defensive during her whole musical career.

But what does our seductive heroine do to relax when she’s not on tour with her world-famous death metal band, Ark-KaotiK?  Why, jam death metal of course.  Her favorites tend to be more progressive-djent style bands like Uneven Structures or TesseracT, bands that have harmony in addition to bad ass vocals, but what are her favorites?

Since she digs melody, Devildriver is a top favorite.  Not only do they rock the melodic, their front man, Dez is a bad ass.  He commands a stage like no other and when he’s on it, you know it!

The British Djent-metal outfit Monuments has not only a bad ass sound and melody, but their lead singer can move a crowd.  Favorite songs?  Regenerate, because when the beat hits, that song really hits hard and the crowd can move, giving Sonja ample ability to not only scream her lungs out, but take all that negative energy from the crowd and wash it.  Horcrux kicks some major ass with complex riffing and drum techniques too.

When she wants a dose of pure death metal, Sonja’s apt to hit up Whitechapel.  The Saw is definitely the Law around these parts!  The Tennessee based death metal outfit’s last album hit the nail on the head lyrically, even though it’s a done in traditional death metal style, lyrically.  There are no theories about life here, it’s straight up “life sucks, then you die, fucker!” shit. But it gets the point across and lets her vent personal rage, cleansing her of all that foul energy she’s picked up from not just her fans, but the world around her.

Textures, out of Holland, gets her blood pumping.  The last three albums are solid examples of proggy, djenty death metal that hit home with her lyrically.  Even the acoustic rendition of “Messengers” has a certain heaviness to it.  The rising crescendo to the chorus makes her heart sing.

Lastly, Stealing Axion has played a huge part in her personal set list.  Three hipster looking motherfuckers, as she’d call them, take progressive to almost Dream Theater levels with apt songwriting, tight musicianship, a combination of both heavy and melody, and vocals that can soothe or scare.  Some of the most brilliant, life altering lyrics have been written by this band and those words have hit home on more than one occasion.

To find out more about Sonja’s story and her foray into a new realm, pick up your copy of Slow Burn – A Sexy Spy Thriller from Amazon today!  Former spy Derrick falls for the sexy spitfire he’s bound to protect, even as terrorists scheme to take her from him – and destroy his way of life.
