I fell in love with Diana Murdock‘s writing when I read SOULED, her stunning and original YA Paranormal novel. Now my friend has written a new novella, SOULSTICE, and I’m honored to unveil its cover.
“Fire is your element, Alyx.” Mom carefully set up a candle on the floor between us. “You’ll learn to harness its energy easier than you will the other elements…”
Developing her talent to manipulate the elements could be easy. It should be easy, but Alyx instead chooses to turn her back on her tragic past and her family’s talent and just be a “normal” teen.
But once a fire is lit, its energy never dies. It burns away ignorance, allowing truth to shine through.
And when that happens in the face of the solstice, when Alyx opens up and allows that fire to burn, she becomes a magnet for much bigger things… and bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better…
When high school wrestler, Seth Thompson, shows up to school with another soul riding shotgun, Alyx’s fire burns brighter, and it has nothing to do with how hot Seth really is…
“Alyx’s journey started long before she landed in Sandpoint, Idaho, but was the road that led her to cross paths with Seth Thompson destined, or merely a coincidence? SOULSTICE is a companion novella to SOULED.”
Single mom, writer and reader of Young Adult Paranormal, dreamer, cardio-junkie, friend, calm, wild, lover, fighter, tree-hugger, material girl, relentless, mellow, passionate, zen master, party girl, selfless, selfish. I am all of these. Who I am on any given day depends on whether the sky is bright or dark with clouds, if I tripped over the dog or had a great run. I cannot be contained. I don’t like boxes and boxes don’t like me.
