LOCUST & LIGHT
A Young Adult Fantasy
As the descendant of those who practiced the taboo rituals of the Unholy Arts long ago, Avery is feared for the demonic magic she surely possesses. She was found as a baby, the sole survivor among the massacre of her people, rescued by a lonely, old man who would become her father. To avoid the governing Archangel’s persecution, Avery must keep a secret:
All her dreams—and nightmares—come true. And she can’t control it.
When a demon attacks her island home, cursing her father, and later the Archangel’s mother, the people are convinced Avery is to blame. With the Archangel’s rebellious grandson, Kade, and an angel army ordered to hunt her down, Avery goes on the run, guided by her dreams, determined to prove her innocence and find a cure for the only family she has left.
She seeks out the one person unaware of her tainted history for help—the island’s clueless new resident, Nathan. But the demon follows Avery’s every move, leaving a trail of cursed bodies in its wake, and Avery begins to believe she might be at fault. On the verge of becoming the villain she was always said to be, Avery must decide who is worth saving:
Her father, or the people who would never do the same for her.
