Lai Cathwell is good at keeping secrets. Being a mind reader and feigning insanity for the past two years to escape military service have only improved her ability to deceive others. And as a supernaturally gifted Nyte, feared by the ungifted and shunned, this skill is essential to survival. But when the rebel Nytes’ latest attack on the city ends in multiple deaths, the military asks Lai to return to fight with a new team of Nytes.
She reluctantly agrees. However, the team is hardly what she imagined. She butts heads with Al, a short-tempered fighter lying for the sake of revenge; Jay, a self-conscious perfectionist obsessed with being accepted; and Erik, an amnesiac hell-bent on finding his memories and his place in the world. And if this team can’t learn to work together, the entire city will be plunged into war.
Recently, a friend of mine finished the final draft to a novel she’s been working on for the last five years. She started it our senior year of high school, and since then has done numerous revisions and drafts. I can’t express how much work, and effort she’s put into this manuscript, and how much it’s evolved since its conception. I’m currently reading through it, and wanted to share it so it could get some traction.
She’s currently in the publishing process, and looking to gain a bit of feedback. The full manuscript is up on Swoonreads, and any and all feedback is welcome. It’s a young adult fantasy, bringing a bit of dystopia and romance into the mix.
