The Prequel

They don’t pay attention to me so long as they think I can’t see them.

That’s how I’ve lived my whole life being able to see spirits.

Pretending to be normal begins to pay off though. Despite my weirdness, things are finally getting better. Somehow, I found a home with parents and a new life.

No one needs to know.

But then I meet Finn.

He’s in my class, and is slowly being killed by a demon. No one else seems to notice. At first, I try to ignore it too, but then Finn Abernathy starts following me everywhere. It’s really annoying, but…

I feel bad. He’s dying in front of me and I can’t just let it kill him. That would make me the worst person in the world.

There’s no other way but for me to stop it. I only hope I know what I’m doing.

The First Book of Bianca's Story

The things I see aren’t for the faint of heart.

And I am no longer willing to ignore them. Not even when my family, and my best friend, tell me to keep quiet about what’s happening. They say people will think I’m crazy.

Maybe I am.

But the spirit haunting my professor’s house is definitely trying to tell me something, and I’m the only one who can see it.

The one person who can help me is my best friend’s brother. But I don’t know if I can trust him or his friends. Or if I can step outside the protective bubble I’ve built around myself.

At this point it’s a toss up: the ghosts will kill me or my panic attacks will.

Either way, I figure I’m going to die.

The Second Book of Bianca's Story

My abilities are growing every day. But thanks to my new friends, I know that I’m not insane.

Even so, there’s a darkness inside me. It’s been getting stronger. A reality that I’ve been trying to avoid. 

Being near the boys draw it out. Being close to them also make me unafraid for the first time in my life.

I’ve never felt like this before, but at the same time, my mind has latched onto the feelings they evoke. Julian encourages me, Miles comforts me, Titus protects me, and Damen… 

Damen gives me something to believe in.

We have days to solve this haunting, but my personal issues threaten to overwhelm me. With each passing day, it becomes more difficult to pretend to be normal.

And if I falter, for even a moment, then I could lose everything forever.

The Third Book of Bianca's Story

A million things have been kept secret from me for as long as I can remember. And I’m sure there’s a million more.

However, for once in my life, some things are starting to make sense.

No matter what anyone else says, there’s a place for me. With Damen, Miles, Titus, and Julian, I finally belong. Finn might not be happy about it, but what I do is none of his business.

None of that might matter though. Not unless we finish this case. The more things come to light, the more tangled the web. In the end, I might be forced to make an impossible decision: justice or compassion.

Either choice will leave its mark on my soul.

The Fourth Book of Bianca's Story

I finally found somewhere to belong, only to be ripped from the four men who complete me. They are the only ones who’ve ever helped me feel normal.

This was my greatest fear—being locked away, alone with those who would call me crazy. No matter how much everyone tries to convince me otherwise, I won’t admit that there’s something wrong with me. But when the voices keep gaining strength, everything I fought to hide comes to light.

Everyone says I’m broken, but this time, things are different. I‘m different. It doesn’t matter that I don’t fully understand it myself. I refuse to let them win.
