Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

Okay, you can do this, Rae Voight thought. You have to do this. She peered down the hallway she knew Anthony would use to get to the cafeteria. She didn't want to see Anthony. Not now. Not ever. Which was why she'd been avoiding him for days. But she had to talk to him. He had a right to know how things had ended. Until she told him, she couldn't get on with her life. And that's all she wanted. To get on with her normal-girl life withher so-far-above-normal-former-ex-boyfriend Marcus Salkow.

Thinking of Marcus made her feel all cozy, like she'd been wrapped in her favorite fuzzy blanket. A few minutes with Anthony, then it can be all Marcus all the time, Rae promised herself. She took another look down the hall. Come on, Anthony, come on, she thought. I want to get this over with.

An electric tingle ran down Rae's spine. And a moment later she saw Anthony heading toward her. It was like the rest of her body recognized him before her eyes did. Except no. No. There was no reason for a surge of energy to run through her just because Anthony Fascinelli was in the vicinity.

Rae nervously fluffed her curly, reddish brown hair. She wished she'd worn shoes with higher heels. It would feel good to be taller than Anthony during this conversation. Maybe she should wait until tomorrow and --

No, Rae ordered herself. You are doing this. Right here. Right now. “Anthony,” she called out before she could change her mind. He reached her way too quickly. She wasn't ready. She --

“Steve Mercer is dead,” she blurted. “So no one's after me anymore. I just wanted you to know because . . . because in a way he was after you, too, since youwere helping me. So thanks. And have a nice life.”

Anthony blinked. “Back up,” he demanded, staring at her as if she were speaking another language. “Who is Steve Mercer?”

Like you care, Rae wanted to scream at him. Instead she pulled in a long, slow breath. Somehow it had all blurred together in her mind . . . what Anthony knew and what he didn't know. Maybe because she was trying her hardest not to know any of it anymore, to just forget it had ever happened.

“Steve Mercer was a scientist,” she explained. “He was in charge of that group my mother was in.”

“Right. The group,” Anthony agreed. He paused. “Hold on -- a scientist? I don't get it. What exactly was the group about?”

Rae swallowed. Why couldn't Anthony just let her get through this quickly?

“The group was -- they were people who had some kind of special ability,” she said. She glanced around the hallway almost out of habit, then reminded herself that no one was after her anymore. “And Mercer's job was to get the people in the group to develop major psi powers,” she continued, focusing her gaze back on Anthony. “Drugs, radiation, shock treatment -- you name it, Steve did it to them. To my mom,” she added in a softer voice.

“And it worked,” Anthony said, his brown eyes wide in amazement.

“Yeah, it worked so well that I ended up . . . you know,” Rae said. “And that's why Mercer was after me. I guess the guy went kind of nuts. He decided that what he'd done to the members of the group was dangerous to society. So he basically went on a little killing spree. He killed my mom and at least one other person from the group. Maybe more. And he watched the kids who were born after the experiment. Watched us our whole lives. When he saw that I had been affected, he decided he needed to kill me, too.”

Rae shook her head hard. “But you don't need to know all this. What you need to know is that it's over. Mercer's dead. Guys from the government agency that funded the experiments killed him. So no one's going to be attempting to massacre me again. No one's going to get kidnapped.”

“That's great. That's so freakin' great.” Anthony reached for her. Rae jumped away, scraping her back against the corner of the trophy case behind her. How could he even think of touching her after what he'd done to her?

“Freakin' great,” Rae repeated. “Yeah. Exactly. So what I wanted to tell you is your life can go back to normal. Yours and Yana's.” The name Yana felt like it was made of razor blades. Rae was surprised her mouth didn't start bleeding the second she'd gotten the name out.

“Rae . . . I . . .” Anthony jammed his hands into his pockets. “I should have told you that Yana and I had hooked up. I shouldn't have -- ”

“What?” Rae interrupted. “Shouldn't have destroyed my little sweet-sixteen birthday dinner by showing up with Yana?”

“It's not like you and I were ever -- ” Anthony began to protest.

“I thought we were friends,” Rae interrupted. “That's what I thought we were. And then you got together with Yana just so I'd know how it felt to have someone go behind my back. Even though I only looked for your dad because I wanted to help, and I didn't even send Yana's dad that stupid letter.”

“The letter about treating Yana better? What does that have to do with -- ”

“Yes, that letter. Don't bother pretending to be so innocent, Anthony,” Rae cut in again. “I know you and Yana got together as payback. She told me. She thought I went behind her back with the letter, so she decided to go behind mine. And you went along for the ride.” “You just assume I was in on it, right?” Anthony said, his voice flat. “You don't even ask me. You just assume. Because that's just the kind of thing I'd do...

    Readable, predicatable.

    Call me crazy, but who didn't know from the very first installment of fingerprints that Anthony and Rae would end up together? I would have preferred having known that they weren't going to surprise me, I wouldn't have wasted my time on reading this.

    A Book You MUST Read!

    I have been hooked to this series since summer, and I have not been able to put the books down! You get into it really fast! I love the 6th book the most though, because...well, I'm not gonna spoil it!You'll have to read it! To the very end! You won't be able to put it down! And I can almost guarantee you'll like it! Especially if you're a big Rae/Anthony fan! And the plot is excellent! Check it out!

    Totally great!

    The series was awesome and I can't WAIT to read this book! I know Rae is going to dump Marcus and hook up with Anthony..it's one of those 'duh' things =) lol! I'm not sure who the killer is but I know it's not Yana because she and Rae had never met before..and she didn't go to her school so how would she even have heard of her? But who knows!

    Me too!

    I love the series and I think Rae should hook up w/ Anthony too! it would be cool if she did cause Anthony knows about the fingerprint thing! When I read the first, second and third book I thought one of the stalker peoples was Yana but in the fourth book I didnt think she was then after the 5th one im starting to think that she is the killer again.

    me three

    I just can't wait I seriously think Rae should dump marcus and get with Anothny. I think Rae's 2nd killer is Her mother's best friend's (the one that was murder) son. I think but I might not be right.I like the fact that each book has it's suprise.

    Totally unexpected!!!

    I first started reading this series when I picked up book 1 in May. I was going on a trip, and was looking for something to read on the plane...hahaha. I read it, and could NOT put it down! I've bought all six books, and Revelations was the best yet! I read it in one night, and was nearly in tears by the end. The climax was completely unexpected. I cannot wait for the next one :D

    An honest opinion!

    These books are the best books ever, usually I don't read that often but I read the first one and then had to read the second one so on and so on untill i relized the 6th one wasn't out yet! but now it is and i can't wait to read it! I said these books were so good that now my friends Rachel S., Rachel M., Charity and Brittany are reading them to! I think that Rae should dump Marcus and go out with Anthony because the kiss the kiss has to mean something! It's so fustrating when shes going out with Marcus because i want her to go out with Anthony!

    RaeAnthony, AnthonyRae

    This is the BEST book! I get so into it! It's got a great story line and the way it is written is awesome! Anthony and Rae are such a cute couple. Rae is such a great character. And if Anthony was a real person I would fall for him in a second. He loves Rae so much! If you haven't read it yet, do it NOW! This series is GREAT!!!

    Can't Wait!!

    I just wanted to say that i cant wait till' the last two books of this series (Revelations,Payback)come out,I'm sure they will be as good as the rest of them.Who does everyone think the killer is? I think that its two people.I think it could be Yana and Mrs.Abramson.I think it could be Mrs.Abramson because in the last book she suprised rae when she said ,out of nowhere 'Rae what do you think the worst way to die is'?.I know a lot of people think its Mr.Jesperson cuz he is really weird, but i think that in the end he might be the one to save her,but im probably wrong.Does anyone besides me think Rae should dump Marcus and hook up with Anthony? hey if Yana dosent turn out to be a physcopathic killer maybe she can go out with Marcus! lol
