Voices no one else can hear. In her desperate search, she meets Gabriel Stewart, a runaway with mysterious powers and far too many secrets. In the opening scenes of Crystal Fire, the reader will meet Oliver Blue.
He can locate anyone by touching something they had in their possession. But when Dr Fiona discovers what he can do—and she sees he could betray his own kind and track them down—she experiments on him in a very cruel way. She conducts sensory deprivation with a ghastly helmet.
Oliver is forced from his body to escape her torture to become a teleporter. Dr Fiona manipulates Oliver and holds his body hostage. An actual prisoner Jose Padilla had a similar helmet to what I envisioned for Oliver used on him.
He was kept in sensory deprivation, even when he went to court. Oliver uses his gift to hunt Rafael in Crystal Fire. He'll need to confront his past--and the man who made him--before the hope of peace for the future is silenced forever. Stay put and don't move. Not a creak of a floorboard or a scuff of a boot. He simply reappeared from behind a pile of tossed empty boxes.
Dressed in worn jeans with holes in the knees and a black T-shirt with a bloody yellow smiley face on the chest, Oliver walked toward her with his eyes fixed on her. Those eyes. That's what she'd remembered most about him. His eyes were smoky green, intense and unforgettable. When they first met, she wanted him to look at her, but whenever he did, she felt raw and exposed as if he knew all her sins. Seeing him in the shadows magnified that feeling.
He was bigger than she recalled and towered over her with his broad shoulders and long legs. His scruffy dark hair and bristled chin made him look older, even though Zack had told her that he was nineteen. He had a distinctive upward turn to the corners of his lips that made her believe smiling had once been easy for him, but an unshakable sadness in his eyes weighed heavier now.
In another life she could picture him being a good son, tolerable brother, and anyone's trusted best friend, but too much had happened to change him. Copyright Jordan Dane. Jordan Dane makes up stuff for a living.
Finaly, Scarlett feels as if she is in complete control over her life and future. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win… and those who will lose everything…. Zafira is the Hunter, disguising herself as a man when she braves the cursed forest of the Arz to feed her people. Nasir is the Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the king.
If Zafira was exposed as a girl, all of her achievements would be rejected; if Nasir displayed his compassion, his father would punish him in the most brutal of ways. War is brewing, and the Arz sweeps closer with each passing day, engulfing the land in shadow.
