Series: Bloodseeker #2
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
A mysterious, blinding white light, followed by a vision, haunts Mandy until something unthinkable happens. She comes home from school to find her mother badly injured. On instinct, through her tears, forces from within surge through her fingertips into her mother, giving her a second wind. She urges Mandy to take a note and leave, but she can't -- not yet.
Her hot, dark-haired, muscle-bound neighbor, Joel, finds her and drags her crying towards the door. What awaits them on the other side sends them back into the house, where she learns Joel isn't who she thought. Her entire life gets turned upside down as her destiny sends her and Joel deep into the world of Bloodseekers and other supernatural creatures.
A faint sound like water rushing against the ground caught her attention, then the form of a woman. Her hair hung in long brown waves around her oval face. She wore a light blue slip dress. Her red lips mouthed something that Mandy couldn’t determine, then the woman faded.
“Wait, don’t go!” Mandy said as she lunged for the woman. Her face planting against the window as the muggy air and woods vanished.
Discombobulated, she stood for several seconds attempting to determine what had happened. Then a whisper in her ear said, “St. Augustine.”
Mandy brought her hand to her ear then twisted her head. The room was void of life except for herself standing disoriented in a long purple T-shirt and sports underwear.
Who was St. Augustine and why do I need to know him or about him? What just happened?
