“The build of the story is a slow burn, like a fuse curling through an empty storehouse ONLY to find out that the fuse is attached to ten tons of fireworks. Holy Climax, Batman!” ~ Shannon Mayer, author of Priceless
“Cady–short for Arcadia–is an appealing heroine, and I enjoyed cheering for her as she confronted the tragic death of her twin sister, the collapse of her family, the vicissitudes of teenage romance, and the amazing discovery of her gift.” –Mike Mullin, Author of ASHFALL.

As her home life crumbles and her emotional control slips away, Cady begins to suspect that her first psychic episode was just the beginning…
