Overview

Everyone needs to be a hero at one point in their life. The small town of Elliot Lake will never be the same again after Zoe, a high school senior from Elliot Lake, and five of her friends take shelter in an abandoned uranium mine during a violent thunderstorm. Over the next few days, Zoe’s hearing sharpens drastically… to supernatural levels. She tells her friends, only to learn that four others have an increased sense as well. Zoe is determined to use her new power for good, while trying to keep her growing feelings for Kieran, the new Scottish boy from their group, under control.

Fashioning themselves into superheroes, the group tries to stop the strange occurrences happening in their little town. Muggings, break-ins, disappearances, and murder begin to hit too close to home. It leads the team to think someone knows about their secret – someone who wants them all dead.

An incredulous group of heroes. A traitor in the midst. Some dreams are written in blood.

Meet the Author

Wanita May grew up in the fruit belt of Ontario - St.Catharines. Crazy-happy childhood, she always has had a vivid imagination and loads of energy.The youngest of six -- four older brothers, and a sister -- taught her at a young age to be competitive in all aspects of life.At sixteen, she began competing in athletics (track and field) and before she turned seventeen, she was representing Canada in high jump. She continued to compete, breaking Canada's JR High Jump record (1.92m - 6' 3 1/2" for those metric-ly challenged). She attented University of Toronto, and Kansas State University - winning CIAU's and becoming All-American 6x - NCAA Indoors Runner Up + more.But you're not interested in her athletic career - unless of course you're curious to know she stands 1.70m (5'7") and has jumped 20cm over her head on more than one occassion. She's represented Canada at the World Championships, World Jrs., won Francophone Games, and loved every minute of every competition. From the grueling workouts, the crazy weights she lifted on her back, the days she thought her lungs were going to spit out of her mouth for lack of oxygen, the travelling around the world and the opportunity to read - her favourite past time.Life continued with her husband (a distance runner from Liverpool, UK, who she met at KSU) and then their first, then second and finally third child. Their house became full of more imagination and stories.Wanita and her husband run an online business, dealing in antiques and collectables - particularly jewelry and porcelain (one of the business' website: wadeincanada.com ).After her father passed away in 2009, from a six-year battle with cancer (which she still believes he won the fight against), she began to write again. A passion she'd loved for years, but realized life was too short to keep putting it off.She is currently represented by Dawn Dowdle of Blue Ridge Literary Agency. Wanita is a writer of Young Adult, Fantasy Fiction and where ever else her little muses take her.

    This is going to be a confusing review...so be prepared. I thought the book was absolutely great. It started off fast paced and drew you into the adventure immediately. However, it is only 79 pages and just barely begins the tale of what turns normal teens into paranormal super teens. No matter how great the start is...that's all it is...a beginning. I'm not sure what the author was thinking by releasing the book before it was finished. The editing is terrible and the boy from Scotland needs to lose his accent and leave it up to the reader's imagination because it detracts from the flow of the conversation. All that being said I still think you will enjoy this small piece of the pie. If the writer finishes the book as well as it started it will definitely be a winner. Jp

    Short, sweet and left me wanting more!

    Radium Halos is a short and sweet read. It left me wanting more from this story and the characters.

    Zoe and her friends take cover in an old mine when a sudden thunderstorm hits. The next day they each realize that they have some kind of supernatural sense. Each one is different from the others. The only one who did not receive any kind of supernatural sense is the new guy Kieran. They all decide for now that they are going to keep this all between them and not tell anyone else. They want to learn and develop their new senses more.

    Since this is a short book we only get a glimpse of what is to come. I liked the characters and the plot is interesting. It is just starting to develop. I'm excited to read more and see what the author does with this story. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
