Read An Excerpt-
“Now,” Cathryn said when we’d finished eating and the last of the papers was

returned to her briefcase, “let’s get to work on our other priority. Close your eyes,

Tasmyn. I want you to picture the energy that allows you to hear thoughts. Visualize it.

Got it?”

I had had some experience with this and so it was easy. I saw the power, my

most familiar ability, a swirling purple mist. “I’ve got it.”

“All right. Now take that same energy that flows out so easily, and make it solid.

It might take a few tries. Take your time.”

As soon as I heard her words, the mist began to take a more opaque form,

spreading out into a sort of wall. “I can see it. It’s like a solid plank. . .a wall maybe.”

“Excellent. Spread it all around your mind. Picture it protecting your thoughts.”

“I’ve done it. Now what?”

“Now I’m going to try to get through your wall. And you try to keep me out.”

I felt Cathryn’s assault right away. I envisioned the purple veil repelling each

attack. After a few moments, Cathryn said, “Good. Very good for a first try, actually. I

want you to keep working on it. Remember that you never know who around you might

have the same talent, and you could put yourself—and Carruthers—at risk if you don’t

guard your mind very carefully. Understand?”

I nodded. I hadn’t thought it before, but this whole operation was beginning to

feel like a covert mission.

“I heard that,” Cathryn said dryly. “You’re not entirely wrong, but have you ever

realized how often you jump to dramatic conclusions, Tasmyn? I’m a vampire,

Carruthers is a black ops organization. . .really, maybe you should write fiction.”

I concentrated on pulling the veil back over my mind before I replied. “If you had

been attacked by not one but two deranged witches and almost drowned by an

overzealous minister, all over the course of less than two years, none of those would

sound so crazy.”

Cathryn laughed, and for once it didn’t make me want to scratch her eyes out. “I

guess you have a point. And nice work. I can’t hear even one of your thoughts. Keep it

up, Tasmyn. You’re off to a good start.”
