A realm of monsters. A world of lies. She belongs to both.

 

My name is Emberly, and everything I’ve ever been told is a lie.

 

Monsters don’t exist. Wrong.

The nightmarish spectrum world is just my imagination. Wrong.

In a few months, I’ll finally be free. Wrong.

 

It takes being dragged to a secret training academy in the mountains to unravel the truth. My captors--an elite race of angel-born warriors called Nephilim.

 

The deadliest of them all is an arrogant shape shifter, Steel. He’s gorgeous, lethal, hot-headed . . . and convinced I’ll be the death of them all.

 

Maybe he’s right. As soon as I show up, the monsters that have haunted me my entire life breach the academy walls. My only hope of saving my new friends is learning how to control my powers, but when a stunning betrayal hurts someone I care about, I have an impossible choice.

 

Stay and fight for a place to belong . . . or decide once and for all that I’m better off alone.

 

Enter the spectrum world, a realm in-between worlds where shadow beasts draw blood, reality is a maze of twisted lights and sounds, and life goals are whittled down to just one: survive.

 

Fans of Jennifer L. Armentrout and Cassandra Clare will love this Crescent City meets Crave mash up!

 

Exclusive Excerpt

“He was knocked unconscious for a while.”

Steel’s narrowed gaze snaps toward me with a clear warning.

“What?” I shrug, “It’s the truth. Get over yourself already. You’re not invincible.”

He scoffs at me. “I’m about as close to it as you’ll ever see.”

“Conceited much?”

“It’s not conceit if it’s true.” He throws open his arms. “This is just me stating facts.”

I bare my teeth. I’m too far past annoyed for a simple eye roll.

“Yeah, you’re not God’s gift to mankind.”

“In fact, that’s exactly what I am.” With a smarmy smile he adds, “Womankind as well.”

“You disgust me.”

“I highly doubt that’s the emotion you feel when you think of me.”

“Guys?” I barely register Greyson’s voice past the blood pounding in my ears.

“How would you know anything about how I feel?” I don’t even attempt to conceal the venom in my voice. Instead I shoot the words at him like bullets.

Steel returns my lob with slitted eyes. “How could I not know everything? You wear your emotions like an open bottle of cheap perfume. I couldn’t escape the fumes if I wanted to.”

“At least I have emotions,” I spit at him. “You sure you have a beating heart in that chest?” I can’t stop the purge now. “Nothing gets through that hardened shell, does it? And if anyone gets close, you shove them away. Shove—ha, that’s too mild of a word. It’s more like you punch and kick them until they run screaming in the other direction. But who cares if you hurt someone, right? As long as you can stay protected on your island of one, the ends justify the means. What was it exactly that turned you into an emotional zombie?”

 

About Julie:


Julie Hall is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling author of young adult fantasy fiction. 

Before writing her first novel Julie worked as a film publicist and rubbed elbows with the rich and famous . . . as in she would gently nudge them to let them know their meal had arrived during press interviews.

She now spends most of her "office hours" with her two furry writing buddies, Bear and Coco. Her daughter thinks that mommy's superpower is “sleeping all day,” but that’s because she’s often awake until the wee hours of the morning weaving tales of adventure in worlds of her own creation. When asked in an interview what she wanted to be when she grew up, she’s quoted to have answered, “to never have to grow up.” 

She currently lives in Portland, Oregon with her four favorite people--her husband, daughter, and two 
fur babies (because dogs are people too).
