What could possibly go wrong?
HIDDEN POWER - BOOK ONE
I was born the day my parents died. Growing up in the foster system, I never knew when the rug would be pulled out from under me. Now, I’m twenty-two and while I’m technically free, life still isn’t easy.
When a day at the beach turns into some kind of magical freak show featuring a guy with a fire lasso trying to hogtie me on the sidewalk, all kinds of crazy breaks loose. Next thing I know, I’m strapped to a bed, I can’t speak, and some woman is telling me I’m a Vox Elemental, which leaves me a choice between getting shipped off to a magic school to train my voice or be silenced forever.
Of course I choose the school; who wouldn’t?
One wrong move could cost me everything. My plan is to work hard and earn my freedom, but I wasn’t counting on four of the hottest guys I have ever seen, a posse of mean girls, and something literally making a meal out of the student body. Add some dark secrets and a plot aimed at my failure, and suddenly staying here seems like the wrong move. I won’t give up my voice or my freedom without a fight, but that’s assuming I survive.

Excerpt from HIDDEN POWER:
As I turn the corner, something in the air changes. It’s as if I stepped into a shadow or something. My skin breaks out in gooseflesh.
“Avaline Sable?” The woman pushes off the wall across from me and stands facing me. She’s got bright red hair and she’s wearing fingerless leather driving gloves that don’t fit with her cutoff jean shorts and white tank top. She says my name wrong—with a long I instead of een at the end—but I don’t correct her; I am too busy staring at the ball of blue light floating between her hands.
What the fuck is that? And how does she know my name?
The woman is at least ten feet away from me, and she looks older than me. I bet I can outrun her. I glance quickly to my right, thinking I’ll go back the way I came, when the man in white steps slowly around the corner, blocking me. He’s even creepier up close, though I still can’t see his face.
“We just want to talk,” the woman says. She’s got a weird accent; something European but not like one I’ve heard before.
The man in white nods. “Just talk.” His voice is small and harsh, too high-pitched for a man his size.
I take a step back. The heat radiating off the brick wall is at odds with the strange shadow moving in to surround us. My heart pounds in my chest. Everything in me screams danger. I don’t know who they are or what they want, but I need to get far away from these people.
We are in a wide alley between two buildings that line the park side of the lake. The back door to the lifeguard station is around the next corner to my left. Beyond that, the walls make a straight line to the lake.
The shadow sinks lower and I realize that it isn’t really a shadow at all, but something else, something the woman is controlling. I have no idea what the hell is going on but I take another look around. They have me cornered. There are no people back here.
“Help!” I scream as loud as I can. I have no idea how, but my words are muffled by the shadow cloud. It’s as if an invisible pocket opened up and took away my scream.
The woman steps closer, her floating light ball turns from blue to dark purple. “Avaline, don’t. We just want to talk.”
I step to my left. I am only a step or two from the corner. If I can get inside the lifeguard station, Jason will be there and Ally, too. I’ll be safe.
“Don’t move.” The man in white waves his hands in front of him and two thin lines of fire extend from his palms. He spins one over his head. It loops around itself, forming some kind of fire lasso while the other snakes through the air toward me.
The snake stretches past me and blocks the corner of the building and my escape.
I take off running.
