All her life Fern has been told she is blind to reality—but what if she is the only one who can truly see?
Fern Johnson is crazy. At least, that’s what the doctors have claimed since her childhood. Now nineteen, and one step away from a psych ward, Fern struggles to survive in bustling Los Angeles. Desperate to appear “normal,” she represses the young man flickering at the edge of her awareness—a blond warrior only she can see.
Tristan was Fern’s childhood imaginary hero, saving her from monsters under her bed and outside her walls. As she grew up and his secret world continued to bleed into hers, however, it only caused catastrophe. But, when the city is rocked by the unexplainable, Fern is forced to consider the possibility that this young man isn’t a hallucination after
all—and that the creature who decimated his world may be coming for hers.
CHAPTER ONE
Present Time
On television, they never tell you how cold it is.
 
They might show you the dimly lit room or the hard, uninviting chairs—stark reminders that you have no power here. They may depict the lonesome table separating you from the elderly agent with the stone-grey eyes. But those cop shows never depict what a chilly affair an FBI interrogation truly is. If their aim is to make this process as intimidating as possible—it’s working.
 
I wrap my hands around bare shoulders, fingertips far colder than the skin exposed by my red tank top. Brilliant move, Fern. Wear a scarf, but forget your jacket. Stifling a shudder, I try to meet the sharp gaze of Agent Barstow standing rigidly across from me.
 
“I don’t know where you’re from, miss Johnson—but in LA, state-of-the-art buildings don’t just crumble.” His voice is gravelly, matching the jagged lines of his dark skin and weathered face. “Federal buildings, no less. There one minute and the next…destroyed.”
 
His tone chills me even more, and I tug nervously on my scarf. His arms slowly unwind from his chest as he takes a
deliberate two steps toward me. “We’ve had everyone on the disaster—CIA, local police, firemen…heck, we even called NASA. No one can find a plausible reason why a skyscraper, in excellent repair, would collapse like that. No one, that is, except you.”
 
I fight the urge to bolt for the door as he leans down, palms flat on the table, so close I can make out the creases on
his dark suit. “You warned us of an attack in that area two weeks ago. How did you know?”
 
I suck in a deep breath as his voice lowers, dark fists tightening on the edge of the table. “Are you involved with
a terrorist organization?”
 
I almost laugh at his words, at how they couldn’t be farther from the truth. I’m here to save LA, not destroy it. To
save everyone. And I don’t have much time—none of us do. If I can’t gain this man’s trust, a shattered building is nothing compared to what will come next.
 
“No, sir.” I shove my shaking hands beneath my legs as I glimpse a pair of lucid blue eyes over the agent’s
shoulder. They shouldn’t be there—and I know not to stare. But those eyes that only I can see are the reason I warned the FBI in the first place. Their owner the reason I’m even sitting in this room.
 
Licking my lips, I keep my attention on Barstow. I’ve wanted this for years. Someone to listen. Really listen. And it’s the FBI, no less. Be careful here.
 
When I open my mouth, the words are calm and steady. I hope they’re convincing—they have to be convincing. “I knew about the incident, Agent Barstow, because my friend warned me.” Throat suddenly dry, I look away. “My imaginary friend.

COVER REVEAL: Black Diamond by Ali Dean

Synopsis

It’s not a place for the weak.
No one here tolerates wimps.
If you can’t handle it, leave.
Welcome to Stark Springs, Colorado, home to the most talented young athletes in the world.
When Roxie Slade snaps into a pair of skis, there’s no one on Sugarville Mountain in Vermont who can keep up with her. Not even the boys. Still, Roxie was shocked when she received a scholarship to Stark Springs Academy, a boarding school that churns out Olympians in each graduating class. Entering as a high school junior, Roxie can’t wait to learn from renowned coaches and train with the fastest ski racers from all over the globe. But upon arrival, Roxie discovers that Stark Springs lives under its own set of rules, and it appears one boy plays dictator.
Ryker Black is not friendly and Roxie cannot fathom why everyone wants to be his friend. Sure, he’s gorgeous and rides a snowboard like it’s his fifth limb, but he’s cold, ruthless, and holds way too much power over the Stark Springs population. Roxie won’t put up with it. She’s here to train, and she doesn’t care about impressing anyone off the slopes. The only problem? Ryker Black doesn’t permit defiance. Not without consequences.

About the Author

COVER REVEALS: The Forget Me Not Series by Brielle Skye

Brielle Skye is releasing the second book in her Forget Me Not series, and the first book is getting a new cover!

divider

SERIES SYNOPSIS:

In the battle between duty and desire, there will be causalities. But when passion is blinding, morals are questioned, and loyalties are broken, can love conquer all?

In Solitude of a Birdcage, when Isaac Cole falls victim to an act of violence that leaves him with no recollection of the prior eighteen months, two best friends tend to his recovery. For Savannah, it’s simply an attempt to care for the man she loves.

For Maxie, it’s a chance at redemption.

She tells Isaac nothing of the passionate secrets they’d been keeping from Savannah, nor of the unyielding feelings that nearly consumed them both. But as the fragile wall obstructing Isaac’s memory begins to crack, hidden truths slip through the fissures, and Maxie will be faced with an impossible choice—her loyalty, or her heart.

Then, in Like the Red Sky at Morning, the story of Maxie and Isaac continues, and Maxie is determined to move on from the past she shared with Isaac—especially since he still doesn’t remember it. Seeking comfort in a new job, dreams of becoming a chef, and a scheme that may be the very escape she needs, she counts down the days to her fresh start. But as she draws closer to her goals, she finds herself facing a new temptation as intoxicating—and as forbidden—as the last.

Torn between the past and the future, truth and pretense, a new love and the old, Maxie will once again be forced to make a decision that will leave her with everything she’s ever wanted, or nothing at all.

All her life, Breena had always dreamed about fairies as though she lived among them…beautiful fairies living among mortals and living in Feyland.

In her dreams, he was always there the breathtakingly handsome but dangerous Winter Prince, Kian, who is her intended. When Breena turns sixteen, she begins seeing fairies and other creatures mortals don’t see. Her best friend Logan suddenly acts very protective.

Then she sees Kian, who seems intent on finding her and carrying her off to Feyland. That’s fine and all, but for the fact that humans rarely survive a trip to Feyland, a kiss from a fairy generally means death to the human unless that human has fairy blood in them or is very strong, and although Kian seemed to be her intended, he seems to hate her and wants her dead.

COVER REVEAL: Family Secrets by Kat Nichols

Check out the cover reveal for Kat Nichols’ Family Secrets hosted by Itching for Books. This is the first in her YA Paranormal series. Continue below for the intriguing cover, teasers and giveaway.
 
 

 

Series: Secret Societies Collection
Release date: January 2015
 
SYNOPSIS VIA GOODREADS:
An orphan by the age of sixteen, Sophia Morganthal now lives with her best friend and struggles in a world with no relatives. Midway through her Senior year, Sophia finds herself flying across the country to live with a family she never knew existed. She ends up with more questions than answers when she discovers that not only does she come from a long line of witches but that she must be initiated within the year to prevent a battle for coven leadership. 
 
Feeling more alone than ever, Sophia finds her solace in books. The journals of past initiates provide her with more than she ever wanted to know and make her question the path she’s on. Amidst all of the upheaval in her life, Sophia also finds one source of happiness – Connor. The last thing she needs is more complications, but Connor is the only person who makes her feel wanted for herself and not for what she stands for. 
 
As Sophia learns more about herself, and what being initiated into Blackthorne coven really means, she must answer the ultimate question – would she give up everything for her family?
 
EXCERPT
 
   After watching Alexa blow up a precious stone, I was a little hesitant to try. She watched me, her foot tapping the floor repeatedly, until I picked out a pretty blue gemstone that matched my shirt. I held it in my right hand, placing my left hand over it just as Alexa had done. Here is where I thought my previous failed attempts would come in handy since I already knew what didn’t work. But it didn’t matter much after all. My magic, perhaps knowing it was about to be used for the first time, was waiting as impatient as a child kept inside on a rainy day. Unlike those previous attempts, I was finally able to find it, grasp a tendril and tug lightly. It, whatever it was, unspooled and began to move towards my hands. I looked up at Alexa, panic building in my chest, heart beating erratically as this energy moved through my body. It began to pool in my hands, where I should have been able to send it into the stone, but somehow it was blocked. My heart continued to race, getting faster and faster as the energy filled my hands. The pressure built until I was sure my hands would burst, when Alexa placed a hand on my wrist. 
 
   “Relax,” she said. “Let it flow.” 
 
  Something snapped in my brain, a mental block I had thrown up against magic being real, and finally, my power began to pour into the sapphire. It wasn’t long before I felt some resistance from the stone, as the energy flow slowed. I pulled back, somehow instinctively knowing how and my connection to the stone broke. In my hands, I held my very own power stone. Opening my hand, the gem sat on my palm, pulsing along with my heartbeat. I barked out a laugh, staring at the stone, then raised my head to look at Alexa. 
   It was real. It was all real. Everything they told me. I shook my head, still staring at the stone in my hand. The magic energy had retreated back into my body, but I could feel it pulsing inside my chest, refusing to be hidden again, at one time both foreign and completely natural.

Title: LUCIDITY
Author: Stephanie Thomas
Pub. Date: January, 2015
Find it: Goodreads
Beatrice never thought she’d find herself in the middle of Aura, the city of her sworn enemy, the Dreamcatchers. Nor did she never think she’d abandon everything she’d ever known and everyone she’d ever loved to blindly follow Echo, the Dreamcatcher Prince. Gabe would never forgive her, if he lives, and nor will any of the Seers. Upon arriving, Beatrice is quickly thrown into the Dreamcatcher Queen’s self-serving plot to save Aura from a disastrous plague,
and Bea’s anticipated return to the City is becoming less likely every day she is held captive and subjected to the epidemic. Her Visions are the key to the cure, but when her Seer friends show up in Aura as well, Beatrice must learn to balance her precarious friendship and loyalty to both her people and the promise she made to help Echo’s people. As Beatrice navigates these new people and customs, she learns that there are more than just the Seers, Dreamcatchers and Citizens left in the world…and whomever is out there wants to eliminate all of their competition — including her.
Exclusive
Excerpt!
Echo was right.
I hadn’t seen anything yet. As the limousine cruises up to the gates of Aura, I
can’t do anything but stare out the window in complete awe. Aura is the
complete opposite of The City. I immediately understand where it gets its name
from, with its golden-hued buildings and sparkling, translucent glass windows.
Everything glitters, even the sand as it whips around the tall walls that
protect the city from the dry gusts of wind.
                I place my fingers on the
limo’s window and press my forehead to the glass to get a better look. I can
feel Echo’s eyes on me as I react probably as a child would at the first sight
of something they’ve never seen before. There are no skyscrapers here, no
crowded, jumbled row homes with sooty exteriors. The buildings are no more than
two floors high, allowing for a precious view of the almost purple mountains
that peek up in the distance.
                “Echo…this is
beautiful…”
                “Thank you. This is the
home of the Dreamcatcher. After The City banished us, we had to travel a long
way to find a place where we’d be safe from attack. We chose this area because
it’s so dry, hot and humid, that we don’t know who’d willingly want to come out
here. Besides us, of course.” Echo scoots over on the leather seat to
sidle up closer to me. “It is beautiful though, isn’t it? This is my first
homecoming, to be honest. I’ve never been out of Aura for this long.”
                The gates into the city proper
click secure when they are fully-opened, and the limo pulls forward once more.
As soon as we are moving again, I can see the crowds of people who line the
main street, which leads directly to an impressive palace that stands center of
Aura, just like our Institution does in the City. The people are all dressed in
white, some with different colored trims on their robes. They reach out for the
car, calling for Echo, wanting to see their prince.
                As we pull around a circle in
front of the Palace, the courtyard is also filled with Dreamcatchers, cheering
for Echo’s arrival. He brushes a hand down his robe, smoothing the wrinkles
from the soft fabric. “Are you ready?”
                Then, a sudden fear grips me.
“Do they know I am with you?”
                Echo’s gaze meets mine.
“No.”
                I want to slap him, and it takes everything in
me not to lose my temper. “What?”
                “They don’t know you are
with me. I did not tell anyone I was bringing you home. It is a part of my
strategy.”
                I lock the limo’s doors. We stare
at each other for a long while, my chest rising and falling in anger. “How
could you put me in this situation, Echo? I am The Keeper. I’m the leader of
your enemy. You are putting me in great danger, and you know you are.”
                Echo, in his ever-calm way,
reaches out and helps pull the hood of my robe up over my head. “You will
be fine, because you are my guest. And it is a law in Aura that we must treat
our guests with utmost respect.” He pauses. “Not that we get any
guests…ever.”
                Now, I do smack him. My hand
makes contact with his arm, and I scowl. “You better not get me
hurt.”
                “Listen to them. They are
too happy to see me. I doubt they’ll even take notice of you. No offense.”
Echo unlocks the doors and slides across the seat to the other side, where he
can exit first. “Driver, we are ready.”
                The chauffeur exits the vehicle
and appears again beside Echo’s door. As soon as he opens it, the sound of
cheering rushes into the car and Echo sucks in a deep breath. He steps out, and
when I see his hand lower back into the limo, I reach for it and gently rest my
palm against his, using the offered support to help me out of the car.
                As my feet touch the floor, my
robes fall all around me like darkness covering the day, and I’m free of the
limousine. Lifting my chin, my eyes move from the ground to the people, and I
swallow as the cheering comes to an abrupt stop when they see my violet irises.
Almost all at once, they take a step back, and no one makes a sound.
                I tighten my grip around Echo’s
hand, sure that in the next moment, they are going to rush us and kill me where
I stand. Here I am, their sworn enemy, the representation of The Keeper before
me who persecuted them, ran them out of The City and killed many of them,
including their princess. I stand before them as if none of that had ever
happened. I know, if I were in their place, I’d certainly want to see myself
dead too.
                Muttering very quietly to Echo,
I tug on his hand, “Let’s go.”

COVER REVEAL: Stars by Madison Louise

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for!

I’m now going to reveal the cover of my upcoming YA standalone, STARS.

Are you ready?

Summary first, as always:

After the death of the King, Myra knows what she has to do. His son, Torren, Myra’s past best friend, will take the throne. But first, he has to marry Princess Arora, and Myra. His Mistress. Things have been like this as long as Myra can remember, there was a Mistress before her, and so on. The Queen doesn’t have the children, the Mistresses do, and then they get stars. One for marrying, one for completing the marriage, and one for bearing an heir. Myra’s known her fate from the moment she was taken into the royal family after the rebellion years ago.
 
After they marry, things start to change. The way the royals live is different now, less old fashioned, more modern. Myra is excited for this change, maybe things will be different, maybe she will be able to keep her future child instead of having to give it over to Arora like she should. But after a trip to Arora’s family, Myra finds out something that will ruin her forever.
 
She tries to hide her fate from Torren, and from Arora. And with a new rebellion rising up at the same time, it’s easy to. But when a rebel by the name of Carter says she’s the key to helping restore the former royal family back to the throne, Myra is faced with an impossible choice.
 
Stay with Torren and die with him and the Senile when the rebels attack, or join the rebels, and fight for a future that she never thought she’d be apart of.
 
Will Myra choose love, or duty?
 
And here is the cover! Hope did such a great job with the cover!!

My blood pumped through my body like it was on fire. I didn’t want to leave but something was telling me to go. Something besides my frantic mother.
“I don’t understand! What’s going on?”
My father looked at me sternly. “The world is falling apart. You have to go, to be safe.”
I shook my head. “You have to come with me,” I pleaded. I was only seventeen, I didn’t want to go alone.
The looked at each other, their eyes sparkling with the liquid from their tears. My mother nodded. “Take Kiley,” my father said.
“Kiley? But shouldn’t she be with her family?”
“She won’t have a family soon. Now go pack a bag for camp. I’ll call her family.”
“It’s the right thing to do,” my mother agreed solemnly.
“But you have to tell me why! Why do you want me to go to camp? I haven’t been there in years!”
My mother grabbed me and pulled me into a warm hug. “It’s the only place you’ll be safe. You’ll be with your own kind.”
I pulled away from her, “My own kind? What the hell does that mean?”
My mother looked away. I looked to my father for comfort. “Dad, what is she talking about?”
He sighed. “She’s talking about other babies that were born like you. People who are special. You, Camryn, you are so special.”
Special. My own kind. My heart raced. Who was I?

About the Author Majanka Verstraete begged her Mom to teach her how to read while she was still in kindergarten. By the time she finished fifth grade, she had read through the entire children’s section of her hometown library. She wrote her first story when she was seven years old, and hasn’t stopped writing since. With an imagination that never sleeps, and hundreds of possible book characters screaming for her attention, writing is more than a passion for her. She writes about all things supernatural for children of all ages. She’s tried to write contemporary novels before, but something paranormal always manages to crawl in. Majanka is currently studying for her Master of Laws degree, and hopes one day to be able to combine her passions for law and writing. When she’s not writing, reading or studying, she likes watching “The Vampire Diaries” and “Game of Thrones,” spending time with her friends, or playing “World of Warcraft.” http://majankaverstraete.com
