This week I'm featuring Mortal Sight (The Colliding Line #1) by Sandra Fernandez Rhoads, a really great YA urban fantasy. The sequel comes out April 13 and I've already preordered it.
Seventeen-year-old Cera Marlowe wants a normal life; one where she and her mom can stop skipping town every time a disturbing vision strikes. But when a girl she knows is murdered by a monster she can't explain, Cera's world turns upside down.
Suddenly thrown into an ancient supernatural battle, Cera discovers she's not alone in her gifting and vows to use her visions to save lives. But why does John Milton's poem Paradise Lost keep interrupting her thoughts?
In a race against time and a war against unearthly creatures, will decoding messages embedded in the works of classic literature be enough to stop the bloodshed and protect those she loves?
Some girls want to change the world. Others want to rule it. Me? I'd be happy if fall never came. Weird, I know. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty I'd like to change - a lot of things, in fact, but as soon as the autumn wind blasts through town and the leaves turn aspen yellow, I know what's coming.
From the darkness, a shadow rises. The mist evolves into a deformed human shape with elongated arms drooping lower than possible. It has flaky ashen skin too pale to be human. The creature doesn't walk. It has a cloud of mist where feet should be. And the face, distorted and deformed with caverns for eyes. My skin prickles. I've seen this creature before - it's the sallow man from my visions.
