Synopsis: “It’s just in your imagination,” her parents said.
It isn’t until after her parents die that Lexia discovers a secret they did everything to keep from her - that she has supernatural abilities. Her reality is shattered and rewritten with this knowledge, the trauma triggering the powers her parents tried for so long to suppress.
With the help of her new family - an aunt she didn’t know she had and a pair of twin cousins - Lexia embraces the change and her aunt’s training as a coping mechanism, with all the enthusiasm she can muster. Years later, as a reporter for a local newspaper, her exposure to the supernatural takes a dark turn when she finds herself involved in a series of seemingly random, bloody murders. Lexia discovers the murders are being committed by demons and, faced with the possibility of becoming a target, does everything she can to keep her family safe - even if it means becoming more involved in the supernatural than she’d like.
In the struggle to keep her family safe, Lexia learns more than she bargained for as she delves deeper into a supernatural war dating back to before she was born.
Review: This was a fantastic read and I found it really easy to get into as I am a huge fan of crime and mystery stories. I could not stop reading this book and I found that as I was so interested in the book and just could not stop reading it. I would love this book if it was available in a printed copy. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading the genres that are listed above. I like that the story spans across many genres instead of just sitting mainly in the one genre.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
