Hope Gentry doesn’t believe in Fate. Born with an unusual power to see the dark memories of those around her, Hope just wants to be a normal teenager. But on the first day of her senior year of high school, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to a transfer student named Micah Condie. At first glance, Micah seems like a boy that most girls would dream about. But when Hope's powers allow her to discover Micah's darkest secret, she quickly becomes entangled in the lives of mythical entities she never dreamed existed. Was this her destiny all along? And will her powers help her survive the evil of the Demon Impiorum?

Sample text:

In the first two minutes of the first day of my senior year, I’m hit with visions from a shoplifter, a binger and purger, and someone else who sets animals on fire. The background noise from people that I already know is negligible, but the others are pretty loud.

But it’s really not as bad as I thought it would be. I recognize at least two-thirds of the faces in my homeroom. I sit among a cluster of them as if the familiar faces can protect me from the Amherst High kids.

Everyone around me is chattering about what they did over the summer. I listen but don’t contribute. Except for Sylvia and Elisha, I haven’t really made friends with anyone else since transferring here. I’m the girl at school who most everyone ignores. I prefer it that way, not being noticed.

But I notice him right away.

He has to be over six feet tall. And he stands out in ways other than just his height. Like with long lashes framing the bluest eyes I’ve ever seen. And a mouth that’s strong but with lips just full enough to be called sensual. His blond hair is not quite chin-length and messy, like he just got out of bed. He’s what Sylvia would call totally dreamy.

He’s talking to another guy as they both head toward the other side of the room. The two are obviously friends – I’m guessing refugees from Amherst High. I’m doodling on the inside cover of my notebook but can’t totally take my eyes off of Dreamy Guy. The fact that he’s beautiful is not the reason. I’ve never before been swayed in the least by the good looks of any of the boys in my school. But there’s something else about him, something indefinable, that won’t let me look away.

Author review:
Elena was wonderful to work with. Her translation of my book Mythology/Mitología from English to Spanish was excellent, and she worked very quickly to produce the initial and final translations. I highly recommend her work and hope to work with her again in the future.
