The Demon in the Mirror
The students at the Academy of the Forsaken keep winding up dead. The thing no one can figure out, though: how is a serial killer disposing of demons and angels so easily?
First-year demon, Eureka Belvedere, finds herself caught in the middle of the otherworldly murders happening at her school, and if she's going to survive, she needs to learn how to use her demon abilities.
This short story is a YA paranormal mystery about angels and demons, and what it's like being the new girl at a school where students are dropping like flies!
★★★★★ “A delightfully dark short story with just enough light at the end to make it wonderful. I loved it.”
People called Sean a blood guide, though he never fully understood why. As far as he knew, he could hear heartbeats and heal people. It wasn’t until he walked in on his brother’s brutal murder that he learned of the darker nature of his power: blood speaks to him, and he to it. With a simple song, he can command it to do whatever he wants, and in that moment, he showed his brother’s murderers no mercy. Now Sean must fight to keep his inner demons in check and his path to redemption begins with the establishment of sanctuary for people like him, people with powers, the Awakened.
Graciela is one of many who did not Awaken, but she’s watched as her brother’s power as an empath—the ability to sense other’s emotions—has brought him to the brink of death. Together, they set across Central America in search of a cure, or at the very least, safety. What they find is a sanctuary called Hope, the same one Sean governs.
But they soon discover that even from within the compounds of the sanctuary, no one is safe. Not when there are people in the world with unimaginable power and insatiable bloodlust.
