Defying the Auran Council and everything she's been taught, Llona must learn to use her power over light as a weapon if she wants to survive.
ExcerptMr. Steele walked by me, and the faint smell of his cologne sent my head spinning. My knees weakened, but gratefully I was sitting down so I did nothing but slump further into my seat.
I removed a pen from my backpack and attempted to write, but when I looked down there was nothing on the paper. I shook the pen hard and began to write again, but still nothing came out. I stared at it for what seemed like an eternity, with Mr. Steele’s soothing voice in the background, until I realized I hadn’t been writing with a pen at all. In my hand, I gripped my mascara.
I looked around and saw Mike Miller staring at me as if I’d just shaved my head. He rolled his eyes and looked back toward Mr. Steele, who had returned to the chalkboard to continue his math dance with a piece of chalk. I quickly shoved the mascara back in my bag and felt around for a real pen.
My fingers grazed something soft, yet stiff. Wondering what it could be, I took hold of it’s small form and pulled it out. It fit in my palm like a lucky rabbit’s foot, but there was nothing fortunate about it. My teeth clamped down on the inside of my cheek until I tasted blood. It was all I could do to keep from screaming.
