Yesterday was the release day for my newest young adult novel, When Darkness Falls, which is book two in my urban fantasy series The Dark Lines. When Darkness Falls introduces readers to Blake Walker, a boy who has spent most of his life hiding his psychic abilities after his biological mother beat him and turned him over to foster care. Blake's adoptive mother Laura is wonderful, but even after living with her for nine years, Blake can't bring himself to trust her enough to reveal the truth about himself.
When Blake finds out that Faith Carlisle and Eli Tyler, two of his classmates, also have psychic abilities, things start to change a bit. He isn't alone anymore. When he meets Topher James, an older teen who has an unexpected connection with Blake, Blake gains even more confidence in himself.
Then he and his friends discover a force of darkness using an old shack in their town as a portal to its world--where it destroys people with psychic abilities to strengthen itself. Blake and his friends are thrown into the universal war between the forces of darkness and forces of light, and if Blake chooses not to fight, he might lose Faith forever.
When Darkness Falls is available from Jupiter Gardens Press.
