Identifying her parents was the hardest thing ever, until Kaya learned she was the killer’s next target. Moving had thrown the ancient predator off her trail temporarily but with magical abilities manifesting, Kaya’s scent grows stronger and the attempts on her life become constant. Narrowly surviving each encounter, Kaya is desperate to stop her potential assassin, but it’s hard to kill a creature that changes its appearance and disappears without a trace. Kaya finds the support she needs to succeed in her small group of friends and her boyfriend Kenneth. Like so many things, they’re more than what they seem and with the killer having unsettling similarities to Kenneth and his family…Kaya can’t help but wonder if there’s a connection.

Exclusive Excerpt

“Are you ready, Di?” Kaya said as she walked into the bedroom and set the pot down with a thud.

“As ready as I can be.”

“Well, here goes nothing!”

Kaya closed the door and changed into a mallard duck. She waddled to the stock pot and jumped in. Di was laughing in Kaya’s mind. Before Kaya could change into her next animal, she found herself hopping back out of the stockpot and waddling over to Di.

“What are you doing?” Kaya demanded irately. That’s what she found herself quacking anyway. No matter. She knew Di understood her.

Di laughed at Kaya in her telepathic way. “Well, aren’t you the prettiest duck ever!”

“Stop it, Di! I need to make sure I have this right before tonight! Release your hold on me!”

“In a second, I promise.” she said out loud, reaching out for Kaya.

“No, right now!” Kaya shouted at her.

Kaya changed form and Di was staring at herself. Kaya looked exactly like Di and could tell it unnerved her.

“Oh boy, so you are not just limited to animals,” Di said, stunned.

“If you’re done toying with me, can we get back to what we came up here for,” Kaya asked, still furious.

“Uh, yeah, Kay, sure thing.”

Kaya changed back into the mallard, waddled to the stockpot, and jumped in. A goldfish was her next choice. She swam around happily before turning back into the mallard and hopping out of the pot to assume her Human Form.

“Well, it looks to me like you got it under control, Kaya.”

“Yea, I think I do. Can you help me with the manipulation?”

“The best advice I can give you for both of your gifts is to be calm in both your emotions and your thoughts when you try to use them. Give it a shot. Try to move your jewelry box from your dresser to the bed.”

Kaya focused on the jewelry box and tried moving it off the dresser. It moved all right, into her mirrored closet door. She was about to start ranting when Di spoke.

“Kaya, you are still upset with me for messing with you. You need to clear that out. Balance your emotions and thoughts. That way your frustration is not the driving force behind your power. Try again with the bowl of beads.”

About the Author

Lynn Veevers is originally from Washington State. With her mother being from Christchurch, New Zealand and her father being a well-traveled retired Navy Chief, Lynn has always had a fascination with different cultures around the world. An avid reader, she prefers books that take her to a place she's never been and teach her something new at the same time. The Young Adult Genre is her absolute favorite to read, so it comes as no surprise that it is also her favorite to write. Lynn, on average, pens two to three novels a year with the sequel to Pinnacle in the publishing process now!

Today Lynn lives with her husband and kids in Southeast Oklahoma. Her young adult and adolescent children are supportive and avid beta readers of her work and give her a straightforward and honest point of view about how authentic her characters voices and personalities are for their age group. What better reference than someone close to the same age as the main character. Her kids always have and always will be her greatest inspiration.
