Overview

College-bound Lexi Adams leads no ordinary life. Premonitions dictate her every move, compelling her to rescue strangers day and night. After years of self-sacrifice, she decides to ignore one, but innocent people die. So, when the next premonition depicts her own death, she has a decision to make.

Except more complications arise when a series of strange illnesses and murders devastate her small town, and co-worker Jessica Nelson insists Lexi can help. According to Jessica, everyone is born with an inner energy called Essence. Only a select few, Amethysts, can control Essence and heal people. Jessica claims to be an Amethyst and asks Lexi to join her and a group of her friends as they track the murderers. Despite her personal plight, Lexi considers working with them but soon discovers their secrets run deep: Not only do Jessica's friends have a hidden agenda, but they also harbor extraordinary abilities.

Even more unsettling, they have connections with the Ray-pacs – the sadistic killers who are preying on human Essence. Ultimately, Lexi must decide if life, not death, equals salvation. And if so, is she willing to make sacrifices and join her friends in eradicating the Ray-pacs?

Amethyst is the first novel in the Guardian series, a spellbinding, young adult, urban fantasy series. One that wouldn’t be complete without a love triangle at the heart of the story.

Meet the Author

I live in Washington with my husband, Dan, and two children, Dawson and Laci, and our three cats, Lyon, Maci, and Tyger. I graduated from Western with my teaching certificate and find that substitute teaching gives me the best balance: time for family, exercising, cooking, reading, writing, and of course time to guest teach in several different classrooms. Promoting a fun learning environment but without the lesson planning is awesome. "Amethyst" is my first novel in the Guardian series, followed by the sequel, "Linked," and the final book in the trilogy, "Dentelle." They are all available in ebook format.

Thank you to Randi, a complete stranger, who was the first to review Amethyst and who also rated it 5 stars!

Although the book has a slow start there is enough mystery to keep the reader involved. It is a good story for teens and sci fi fans who like an easy read.I would recommend it and am looking forwrd to book two.

I started reading this book at work and I couldn't wait until lunch time so I could continue and then again after work. I found myself thinking about the characters and the events I had read. What a unique story line. It was so mesmerizing I didn't want it to end. The characters are in such detail that you could them. I loved , loved, loved this book. I couldn't wait to get home tonight from work so I could get the second book!! Please keep them coming.......

I really enjoyed this book.  Original plot, good character development and nice suspense.   I will be reading book II over the next two days and am looking forward to it.  I've read thousands of books in my 51 years and  have been a writer and editor as well.

Though it started out very wordy and a bit tiresome, it does become a good story with a different dinamic. I bought the sequel to see what happens...so for a fee start it is pretty good. Maybe the previous relationships and drama will lead to new twists later on.

I found Amethyst a fast moving story. I couldn't put the book down. I will recommend this book to both adults and teens.

The story line and characters are fairly well developed but I noticed she seemed as if she were using a smaller vocabulary to appeal to younger readers but it just ended up making her very repetitive. It wasn't bad enough to make me not want to purchase the last two books however. :D

I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't to enthusiastic about the beginning of the book myself at the start seeing as I am not really into the warrior type of books but this was turned out really well The beginning was slow and I was confused on what the connection was with the warrior at first but in a short time I was able to connect with the characters. At one point I was even pissed off at the elderly man that deals with the stones. There is plenty of mystery and a bunch of romance too boot but I think my favorite part was the main female and her stubborn actions, which was always entertaining!
