Some secrets change your life forever.
Have you ever felt invisible? I do. Everyday. I can’t get close to anyone, and people can’t get close to me. Everytime I feel a friendship beginning, something inevitably happens, and I become invisible again. Unseen. Ignored. It’s been a part of me for so long that it’s hard to imagine anything different.
Then the Saguinox arrive, and my life is forever altered. People are fascinated by these beautiful creatures who look and talk like us. They’re alluring. Seductive. Intoxicating. And two of them are going to my school. Rhys is everything I shouldn’t want, but his eyes are like something from a memory. I can’t help but be intrigued. He’s the only one who can really see me.
Some secrets you’re better off not knowing.
I had been found on a cold winter night with nothing but a blanket, and ashes covering my skin. My mother saved me from death, and took me in with love. But she couldn’t save herself. I didn’t think heroes were real anymore until the day Kaiden saved me. I couldn’t believe in miracles until the day he revealed I was the miracle they had all been hoping for. Deep inside I always knew my past mattered.
I just didn’t know my life would depend on it.
My name is Mari Arden (Mari- rhymes with safari). Teacher by day, author by night. I love my double life. You can also catch me at the gym attempting to sweat out all the sweets I eat when I write. Key word: TRY. I adore sushi and Chipotle burritos, and wouldn’t it be paradise if they could be combined somehow?…. Well on second thought, maybe not. I’m one class away from my masters in education, and feel so fortunate to do two things I’m passionate about: teaching and writing. Adventurous? Come join my double life!
