Dark Vision

Dark Vision

Author: Debbie Johnson Format: Paperback Release Date: 03/04/2014

Lily McCain has been living a life of isolation since she was orphaned at just six-years-old, and sent to live in Liverpool with her emotionally distant grandmother. The visions started soon after, until even touching friends and family would give her frightening glimpses of people's future. Now in her twenties, Lily makes a living as a music writer for the Liverpool Gazette, reporting on bands and interviewing celebrities. She gets by just fine, until a stranger called Gabriel arrives on the scene. Physically impressive and seemingly able to read her mind and understand her as few have been able to, it comes as quite a shock when he tells her that, far from being an ordinary girl with a few psychic issues, she is, in fact, the Mother of the Mortals. She is the spirit incarnate of the Goddess Mabe - and the fate of all humanity rests on her shoulders. But, most importantly, she must stay alive...
