Teen’s Kindle Daily Deal
True Blood meets Heroes.
My name is Sierra Reeves, and my life is built on lies.
I’m not a regular girl. My telekinetic powers can flip the precarious balance between good and evil.
My father’s extended “business trips” were high-risk, magical assignments that ended in bloodbaths, not signed documents. His latest mission went terribly wrong and left me an orphan. Now the gang who executed him is after me, planning to use me as a weapon to overthrow the magical government.
Forced to leave my home, I seek refuge in Savannah under the protection of its magic-bearing marshal Gavin McLoughlin. However, the coastal city only appears peaceful during the daytime. At night, it turns into a place of dark alleys, howling winds, and creaking houses.
If anyone can teach me how to stay alive, it’s Gavin, a well-connected supernatural who hums with authority.
Too bad Gavin has no interest in training me. He doesn’t trust me and wants me to stay far away from him and his city.
I can’t. I need him, and I’m driven to him like a moth to the flame. I know it’s stupid, but I can’t stop staring into his turquoise eyes. His woodsy smell soothes me. And no matter how tough and muscled his exterior, I’m certain there’s a soft side hidden underneath.
I don’t care how hard I’ll have to fight to get into his inner circle. I won’t give up. But just as I make the tiniest bit of progress with Mr. Stubborn, corpses sprout like mushrooms all over Savannah. If I’m not careful, I will be next…

In sixteen-year-old Mike Hernandez’s life, only one thing is clear: Gay is NOT okay. His family’s life revolves around the church, a church run by the vocally intolerant Pastor Myers, so Mike has resolved to spend his life in the closet. His only escape—besides the occasional, anonymous gay make-out session—is his art. He pours his complicated emotions into risqué drawings he keeps in a secret sketchbook. A sketchbook he carries everywhere.
When his sketchbook goes missing in the middle of Sunday school, Mike is sure his life is over. He’s going to be outed, ostracized by their community, condemned by the pastor, maybe even homeless. What’s worse, the pastor’s son, Chris, suddenly seems hell-bent on adopting Mike and his friends and he has no idea why.
When an awkward confrontation with Chris leads to an unexpected kiss instead of a much-expected punch, Mike’s world is turned upside down. As their friendship grows and faith is questioned, Mike may be forced to choose between the comfortable life he’s always lived and a chance at the love he never thought he deserved.
