THERE ARE WHISPERS OF A GHOST IN THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE where sixteen-year-old Wen assists her father in his medical clinic—a ghost who grants wishes to those who need them most. When one of the Noor, men hired as cheap factory labor, humiliates Wen, she makes an impulsive wish of her own, and the Ghost grants it. Brutally.
MacGyver meets War of the Worlds in this exhilarating adventure. Tate and his father don’t exactly get along. As Tate sees it, his father has unreasonably high expectations for Tate to be the best—at everything. Tate finally learns what he’s being prepared for when he steals one of his dad’s odd tech inventions and mercenaries ambush the school, killing his father in the process and sending Tate on the run from aliens who look just like humans.
The conclusion of the Guards of the Shadowlands trilogy. Coming in October 2014.
I’m the author of the Guards of the Shadowlands YA urban fantasy series (Skyscape/Amazon Children’s Publishing), including Sanctum (October 2012) and Fractured (October 2013). The third and final book in this series comes out in October 2014. In May 2014, Putnam/Penguin will publish Scan, the first of two thrillers I co-authored with Walter Jury. My gothic young adult novel Of Metal and Wishes will be published by McElderry/Simon & Schuster in August 2014. When I’m not writing, I’m psychologizing. Sometimes I do both at the same time. The results are unpredictable.
