mortal sight

Seventeen-year-old Cera Marlowe longs for a normal life; one where she and her mom can stop skipping town every time a disturbing vision strikes. But when a girl she knows is murdered by a monster she can’t explain, Cera’s world turns upside down.


Suddenly thrown into an ancient supernatural battle, Cera discovers she’s not alone in her gifting and vows to use her visions to save lives. When she meets a community of emerging artists, she discovers her unique ability to decode secret messages embedded in paintings and the poetry of classical artists, and the reason for her mysterious connection to John Milton’s Paradise Lost.


But in a race against time and a war against unearthly creatures, will decoding these messages be enough to stop the bloodshed and protect those she loves? And if so, at what cost?

From the Ashes, Spring Will Rise


On the run from the brutal Sage and his army of Legions and Cormorants, seventeen-year-old Cera Marlowe knows the only place strong enough to protect her is the Alliance Council Estate.


Her introduction to the Estate is far from welcoming. Cera’s dueling powers of light and darkness make her a threat to the Alliance’s sacred powers. Her ability to decipher hidden messages in classical artwork buys her temporary shelter, but the clock is ticking as she’s faced with a daunting choice that could cost her everything—including those she loves.
