Dark Seraphine, Day 4: Caleb agrees to surf with Kyle excerpt + giveaway


Caleb Agrees to Surf at Night with Kyle

“So it’s like this,” Kyle said, “Caleb and I are on a team. You and the mouth over there are on the second one. First dude to reach the reef tags his partner.”

“Deal,” Ethan said, meeting Kyle’s gaze with a knowing look. Right, so that did it. A lot of stuff was happening that I obviously didn’t know about. I intended to find out what that was before I headed out into the ocean again.

“Alright, stop! Hold up. What’s going on here?” I asked Kyle who had a murderous look on his face as he stared at Ethan.

“Whoa! That’s kinda rude, dude. How could you not tell your butt-buddy about what happened between me and your girl?” Ethan teased, a smile spreading across his face. Kyle clenched his fists and his body shivered.

Oh snap! Now, I understood Kyle’s rage. Shani cheated on him with Ethan.

“Please don’t do this, Kyle. It’s too dangerous,” Shani pleaded. “He doesn’t mean anything to me. He never did.” She narrowed her eyes at Ethan. Oh boy. I missed out on everything.

“Sweet. You didn’t seem all distracted this way when you were calling out my name a few months ago,” Ethan cooed.

“Shut up, Ethan,” Shani hissed.

Kyle started toward him. I moved in his way and held him back. “Save it for the waves, man. Let his skills make up for that mouth.”

At this point I knew the choice was no longer mine. For Kyle, this whole deal had turned into a rescue operation, the kind that saved your face after experiencing something humiliating like what Shani just confessed.

For me it was just plain suicide.

Crazy mission or not, I was going to have to ride the waves with my friend.

"Mom always says the angels walk among us. She forgot to tell me that sometimes they're not all fluffy and nice."

Seventeen-year-old Caleb Wood has seen people he calls the walkers since he was a baby. It didn't take long for him to realize something…no one can see these strangers but him. They never stuck around or tried to touch him. And they never said a word. That was until one day on the first day of class in his senior year when an incredibly gorgeous girl strolls into his life…and things are never the same again.

Soon Caleb realizes he has stepped into the middle of a growing conflict between two celestial races. And his ability to see the invisible ones, the half-breeds that want to modify the human race, just might be the only hope both he and the mysterious, but infuriating Gia have of making it out alive.

  2. I'm drawn to stories about angels because of the wings (major selling point!) and I like a lot of mythical creatures. So yeah! Angels just interest me!
