about SHATTERED BLUE

Can love span worlds?

For Noa and Callum, being together is dangerous, even deadly. From the start, 16-year-old Noa senses that the mysterious transfer student to her Monterey boarding school is different-Callum unnerves and intrigues her, and even as she struggles through family tragedy, she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own.

But in Noa’s world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch- or a kiss. And Callum’s not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought?

ONLY A RENEGADE WILL SURVIVE

Reckless, desperate, and distraught, Noa Sullivan leaps into a collapsing Portal in the explosive finale of Shattered Blue –the jaw-dropping, award-winning first installment in The Light Trilogy –in wild hope of rescuing her little sister Sasha. Now Noa and the Fae brothers who love her–Callum and Judah Forsythe–must find a way to survive not only across worlds but between them, in places so treacherous and deceptive their own minds are twisted against them. As the three fight to survive their passage, they battle not only enemies but themselves, and their darkest, most difficult secrets.

Surviving, however, is only the beginning: Noa needs to find Sasha. That means becoming a warrior herself, one just as fierce as the magical brothers battling for her love. Across broken cities, underground labyrinths, rushing floods and endless skies; in the face of legions of armies, horrifying tyrants, and the most deceitful of friends, can Mortal Noa rescue her sister–and understand her own heart–in time to escape the most deadly of magic realms?
