Book Excerpts
Excerpt #1
As soon as they collided, she felt an immense pressure from all angles. She looked around wondering if they had created a book avalanche. As she reached for the book, the clumsy book store clerk reached a hand out to help her. Whitley felt an intense heat rise in her cheeks, she wanted to melt into the floor, and she was so embarrassed she had almost forgotten he was there. Her hand touched the book guys hand and the heat intensified. The room got dark, and light again, she thought she was about to pass out when the realization hit her, the lights were flickering. She hid her embarrassment easily by adding a little “senators’ daughter condescension” to her voice, her father would have been disappointed in her.
“You should really pay your light bill” She threw at him while the lights continued to flicker.
“Uh…what?” Was all he managed to force out.
Whitley pointed up and said, “Your lights. Do they do this often?”
“Oh, no.” His eyebrows knit together as he looked up at the ceiling. “In fact, I’ve owned this building for three years and it’s never happened before.”
“You own this place?” Hadley asked coming up behind him.
“Yeah, Kerr Mason, at your service.” He made a little bow and grinned, the light seemed to sparkle in his eyes.
“Hadley Callaghan, and the klutz you ran into is my sister Whitley.”
“Callaghan huh? As in Eric Callaghan. Senator Eric Callaghan? The presidential candidate?” Kerr asked.
“Yep, that’s our dad. Mr. President himself.” Whitley responded with just a hint of venom in her voice.
“Soft spot huh?” He stage whispered to Hadley.
She nodded, and giggled a little. Whitley rolled her eyes at her sister, she couldn’t believe Hadley hadn’t grabbed her hand and dragged her from the store. That’s what she usually did when she caught Whitley in situations she found embarrassing. She noticed Hadley narrowing her eyes at her and she wondered if her sister could sense how flustered she was.
“Whit, we should probably get going, I’m sure Kerr has to call an electrician or something to get this fixed.” Hadley looked around uncomfortably.
Kerr nodded and started to head to the back room when the jingling of the bell alerted him to another customer. The three of them turned to see who had come in, but couldn’t see anyone. The flickering lights made it hard to focus on anything. As Kerr tried to pass the girls to offer his assistance to the person who’d entered, he stumbled over one of the books still strewn across the floor. Whitley instantly reached to steady him. As soon as she made contact with him again, the lights instantly grew steadily brighter.

Excerpt #2
Dorian continued to meditate in silence. Kerr looked up and saw Nora give him a shrug and a reassuring smile. Kerr sat on the edge of the couch, listening intently for the others. When he and Whitley had gotten downstairs, they rounded the stairs into the living room. He thought he’d heard someone moving in the darkness, but Whitley pulled his arm and led him to the library.
He wasn’t sure where the others had ended up, but he knew they would hear Dorian calling to them. Nora got up and came over to them, smiling warmly.
I’ve been waiting for you guys. They’re going to share the prophecies with us now. Dorian said he feels that something is off, and the sooner we all know what is to come, the sooner we will be prepared to face it.” She laughed lightly. “I’ve been waiting for this for a very long time! The prophecies are the only part of our history they haven’t taught me about.”
Kerr hadn’t thought much about how different this was for Nora. She was used to the abilities, she was used to the strange history they all shared, she was the only one who was raised in a safe and happy environment. The sadness and jealousy he felt thinking about how much he’d missed out on was much more intense than any he had experienced in his life thus far.
“You are so lucky.” He blurted out.
Nora gave him a hurt and confused look. “So are you.”
Kerr was about to ask what she meant by that, when the library door opened and Thatcher came in, followed closely by Hadley.
Thatchers eyebrows were knit together in concern and Hadley looked a little panicked. Kerr was on his feet in an instant, he had already seen it.
“Are you sure it was him?” Kerr asked Thatcher catching him off guard.
“No, I’m not. But it was strange, I felt a connecting. Like a thread was strung between us.” He answered.
“What’s going on?” Dorian asked.
The library door opened one more time and Romulus entered, followed closely by Tahlia. They wore the same look of panic that was still etched on the faces of the other two Evolved. It was clear Absalom had in fact made an appearance.
