"Janey Santiago is the Wonder Woman of West Texas-she's an anti-hero that is growing into something bigger than she may even realize." - A.J. Mayers, author of FINAL BOARDING.
"Mystery, romance and suspense in the West Texas Desert! A fast-paced, supernatural action/adventure." - Lynn Sutton, bestselling author of ANIMALLY and AMERICANLY.
"For me, Into Dust read like one of those action-adventure shows from the 1980s, The Fall Guy, for example or The Dukes of Hazzard, reminding me just how much I miss them." - David Fleming, author of THE SATURDAY BOY.
When the bullet pierced her father's heart and he crumpled to the floor of his convenience store, it changed Janey Santiago's life forever. At first she wasn't even sure if she was alive or dead as she watched a strange blue light shift from his body to hers. In his final moments he handed Janey his mask, confirming her suspicions that he was indeed the vigilante fighting the local cartels.
Janey felt a surge of energy and knew it was her time to carry on her father's work. With the guidance of Augusto-her father's mysterious, young right-hand man-and enigmatic parallels from her favorite comic book series, Janey must learn how to use her mysterious new abilities to fight back against the gangsters that killed her father and threaten to overtake her town.
This is the first in a series-The Thunderbird Chronicles.
