Callie puts family first. Always. Unfortunately, her brother knows it. She has emptied her savings, lost a job and cried over Josh. Now his drug debt is on Callie’s head. Her choice: Become a criminal—and not the petty kind—or have her brother returned in tiny pieces.
The Soul Charmer creeps Callie out, but bartering with him is one step toward saving Josh.
Repossessing souls for two weeks in the name of saving her brother’s life sounded almost honorable. The church signed off on the soul rental services of the Soul Charmer. So did the mob. His magic makes it easier to rise to heaven and offers the bonus of masked DNA. The Charmer isn’t one of the good guys, though, and when his wares go missing he forces Callie into a world of magic she isn’t ready for.
With the help of the gruff, sexy Derek—whose allegiance to the Charmer wavers as his connection to Callie grows—she’ll have to find answers, avoid pissing off the bad guys, and decide what loyalty’s worth.
Losing her brother isn’t an option. Losing her soul? Maybe.
Most kids dream of being accepted into the Clean Air Development program. The chance to live on the government’s teen-only Cloud Nine colony means ditching the protective gear and experiencing real sunlight, and that’s just for starters.
Only Ally Ramsey isn’t like other kids. She loves Ground Level. She intends to stay there below the blackened clouds, making a difference where it matters. Too bad the government doesn’t care about her plans. Before she can say, “I didn’t even apply,” she’s shipped off to Cloud Nine to research ways to fix the environment below.
Ally thinks something is wrong up there in the sky. She has no idea how wrong it actually is, or that she’s wedged herself into the center of danger even her self-defense training and scientific mind may not be able to get her out of. If she fails to expose what’s really happening and stop it, those closest to her could die.
