Last weekend a friend of mine, Sharon Sant, released the first book in a YA trilogy. It’s also the first book in a long list of books as she’s a prolific writer.
Last week I was lucky enough to read another YA standalone she had written but that hasn’t been released yet – It’s so great having friends who are writers! It was stunning. YA is a genre I haven’t really touched yet and after reading Sharon’s stuff I’m left wondering why. Her writing is beautiful and clean and the characters have a real depth to them. I’ve bought Sky Song and I’m part way through it and really enjoying it.
So, without further ado, here are the details for the new YA I’m reading.
What the man told him was too incredible to believe, yet Jacob did believe it. On some deep unconscious level he had always known it to be true. He was an invention, a fictional character. Jacob Lightfoot didn’t exist.
A strange-eyed boy with no memory of his true identity or real parents, Jacob could have no idea of the mortal danger he has been in every day of his fifteen years. Now that danger has found him and suddenly he doesn’t know who he can trust and what is real anymore. All he knows is that his new identity is almost as terrifying as the peril unleashing it has brought. Caught in the universal power struggle of an ancient race of beings and a destiny demanded of him that he does not want, he must fight to protect his own life and everyone he holds dear. But when the time comes, will he be strong enough to make the sacrifices that saving them will demand?
