Teaser #1 (Heather's POV)
Within minutes, she drove to the hospital. She’d ignore Scythe’s muscular body, mysterious silver eyes and masculine smell. His brother was a hottie too and look what he did. What was that saying? Evil comes in pretty packages.

Teaser #2 (From Scythe's POV)
She put her hand on her forehead. “I feel funny.”
Gritting his teeth, he ordered, “Fight it, Heather. Come back to me.” He gripped her hand tighter, but her hand remained icy as if it had been put into a freezer.

Next book I am also reading is Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft by Jody Gehrman | Goodreads

Teaser #1
“It’s mesmerizing,” I whispered. What had begun as a thin vapor now transformed into an opaque, shimmering dome of blue. It shivered and twitched, a restless movement that made it impossible to look away. The undulating surface seemed to absorb the light from the candles. It glowed with ethereal phosphorescence.

Teaser #2

Her feet seemed to acquire jet-propellers as she sprinted up the wall—literally, up the wall. Without a moment’s hesitation she blazed a trail up onto the ceiling, running upside down like some kind of demented Kung-Fu spider. She raced past the candelabra, flipped off the opposite wall, and landed with her hands around my throat.

Chapter 1

In the grand scheme of things, you’ll be dead a lot longer than you’ll ever be alive.
I marinate in that truth, baste in the beauty of its wisdom while peering out at the dull emerald world. I fumble through dense woods with roots that race across the forest floor like wild, petrified snakes. Wisps of lamp-lit fog twist throughout the narrow trails as gnarled branches coil around the evergreens.
Something stirs from behind, disrupts the silence with the heavy crush of leaves. I jump—startled, as though waking from a very bad dream. My chest thumps in rhythm to the pounding in my head.
“Hello?” I call out.
I try to remember how I got here. The last solid memory I have is driving to my boyfriend Tucker’s house to rip him a new one for sleeping with Megan Bartlett, a girl I know from volleyball. I was distracted with rage, the light turned green, and I never saw the other car coming. Then the crash—I remember kissing the windshield as I bristled through it at a horrific velocity.
A groan emits from the branches—more rattling.
My feet crush over a bed of dried maple leaves, filling in the haunting void of silence.
A hard thud lands square behind me, and I turn slow on my heels.
It would have been understandable to see a deer, a bear, or even another human being. But this…
A whimper gets caught in my throat and drowns out the idea of a scream. My heart seizes and I freeze. (this is only the first small part of chapter 1)

“You’ve got the wrong last name.” Wes leans over and types in Laken Anderson, and there I am—smiling with a fedora pushed low over my head.
“That’s not me,” I whisper in protest. I scroll down.

Young Adult/ Mature Situations

The last thing Laken Stewart remembers is the oncoming car, then bursting through the windshield.

Two months dissolve without her knowledge and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings with strangers who not only profess to know her but insist she’s someone else entirely.

Laken discovers her long dead boyfriend, Wesley, has been thrown into this alternate world as well. He is quick to inform her she suffered a horrible fall and that her memory hasn’t fully returned. According to Wesley the other life she had—her name, her family, they were simply a side effect of her brain trauma.

In her quest for answers she meets Cooper Flanders, the son of her psychiatrist who readily believes every word she says.

Laken Stewart knows she died on that hot July afternoon, but now she’s alive—or is she?
