See how it all begins...

In this pulse-pounding prequel to the Night Sky series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann and her daughter Melanie Brockmann, Skylar has her first brush with Destiny. She's about to meet a boy who will change her life—and a girl who wants to end it.

I know her.
Know her from inside the dreams. Inside those terrible, murderous, bloody dreams. I've heard her-screaming, her voice mixing in an awful chorus with all those other girls. Little girls.

Please, God.
That's what one of the little girls keeps saying, in the dream that is not just a dream. Please, God.
But I know better. There's no escaping this fate. This is destiny.
I must kill Skylar.

Skylar Reid is the new girl at school. Her mom just moved them to Florida—aka The Land of the Living Dead where the average age of her new neighbors was seventy-five—to start over. Skylar is not a fan of the change or her total lack of friends. Until she meets Calvin, a funny, sarcastic boy who doesn't let being in a wheelchair stop him from verbally shredding their preppy classmates. Skylar's just about to decide her new school's not a total loss when an odd girl wearing an oversized trench coat in the murderous Southern heat declares, "You're one of us." And then tries to kill her.

My Thoughts

An introduction to the series we meet sixteen-year-old Skylar Reid, formerly of Connecticut she now resides with her Mom in small town in Florida and goes to school at Coconut Key Academy.

Sky is not petite, not curvy, not blonde and not tanned like so many of her new classmates as she has long curly red hair longer legs and is rather lacking in the curve department as she is built more like an athlete lean and slender.

Not finding herself wanting to eat in the school cafeteria Sky has found the outdoor quad area with picnic tables more to her liking, on this particular Monday however her table of the past week is taken by a girl that she bumped into once before that morning before school started so she sits at the next table and introduces herself to wheelchair bound Calvin.

Finding herself all of a sudden with a gun pointing at her when the strange girl leaps to her feet, shedding her full length duster which had previously concealed her weapons from view, Skylar is at first frozen but than manages to tackle and disarm her assailant with a little help from Calvin.

Quick first look at how Skylar meets and becomes friends with Calvin during a tense lunchtime her second Monday at school, also a sneak peek at book 1 in series Night Sky is included and is actually most of the material in this review copy.
