Heir of Shadows by Kel Carpenter

A sister that burned down the house? That’s the least of Selena’s concerns when the killing gene is active.

When Selena Foster is dragged to a boarding school for Supernaturals, she should be thrilled. Instead, she finds herself struggling with insanity and the pull of darkness, because, even among her own kind, she’s a prodigy. She and her sisters know better than anyone the cost that comes with great power, because while Alexandra can play with fire and Lily can heal anything, Selena is more deadly and destructive than the world is ready for.

When Selena makes a promise to her sisters in order to keep the madness at bay, she finds herself being led down a dangerous path where right and wrong are not always clear. The killing gene is both her curse and her salvation. Things get complicated though, when she is paired with the enigmatic Lucas Hunter, who may be the only person alive who can unravel every terrible secret Selena’s keeping—and she can’t stay away.

When loyalties are tested and her sister is placed in mortal danger, Selena must finally decide how much her secrets are worth, who to trust, and who to kill.

"Characters were well developed. Selena was a very complex character you wanted to cheer on. The story kept you wanting more. I read a lot of books and i must say, things were not predictable so dont assume its "one of those" I don't want to spoil anything but i can tell you that you will miss out on a great book if you don't read it. I can't wait for the sequels." ~ Clara Amazon Customer

"I absolutely refuse to post spoilers, but I can safely say that the characters and plot are well thought out and constructed through the novel. The heroine isn't a goody-two-shoes and the world is carefully developed. Plots and side characters come and go with deft skill. It's clear page 1 to the end that this is a novel that has been pored over and that it's a stellar example of a new author, one I look forward to reading for many books to come. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed." ~ Amazon Customer
