We open this first book in a three-book series with a glorious study of a young woman on the cusp of adulthood dealing with the pressure and tribulations of her mental health issues. Like many girls in this modern society, she feels abandoned by her absent father, but it’s more than that—she is different. We get to know her and her demons as she questions why she feels foreign to her peers.
The book is a fast-paced thriller that takes us into the secret world of The Sensorians. The writing is tight and engaging and leaves enough hooks to keep us guessing and working with Eli to figure out what’s happening.
She has extraordinary power—but to learn how to harness it, she is sucked into a new world and a way of life alien to her as she is trained in the lore of the Sensorians. We have action and intrigue, and it’s wrapped in entangled relationships that develop between Eli, Zack and his sister.
Aimed at a young adult market, this book is equally enjoyable for both teenage and older readers. All three books in the series are out and available to buy, so you don’t have to wait to find out what happens next after the first book.
Katherine Black / Susan (Sooz) Simpson
Founder of Best Book Editors
Katherine has held almost every single job imaginable, from painting gnomes to zookeeper. She spent most of her life in the caring profession and has managed both a nursing home and a care agency. But her passion for the written language always brings her home to novel writing.
Born in Tyne-and-Wear, North-East England, she has settled in the beautiful Lake District, Cumbria, with her partner, two dogs, a cat, an iguana and a python (just don’t ask her which of those six things is her favourite!).
She specialises in content creation and social media outreach, and has been a developmental editor for hundreds of clients. She owns and operates bestbookeditors.com where she helps foundling authors polish their skills. However, after being diagnosed with a dramatic brain condition in 2022, she has had to let 23 staff go, and scale back the business. BBE is still very much open, we are just fewer and can’t take as much work on.
Katherine Black is the author of psychological thriller/detective/fantasy adventure novels.
