Young Adult Fantasy
Melissa Mabrey isn’t like other sixteen-year-olds. She can see the colors of people’s minds—colors that reveal their true feelings, desires, and fears. The only person she’s dared to tell the truth about this is her friend Kyle, a classmate with the same ability. But two years ago, he disappeared without a trace, and she hasn’t heard a word from him since.
Until today. In a book carried by a stranger, Melissa finds Kyle’s desperate plea for help. At the same time, strange phenomena begin happening in which people’s minds turn gray and they disconnect from reality, leading to car accidents, falls, and other deadly mayhem. Whatever’s happening, Melissa’s certain it has some link to Kyle and, if she doesn’t rescue him, millions of lives could be in jeopardy.
The trouble is, to get to him she’ll have to traverse the Gallery—a hall filled with millions of paintings, each a portal to a different world. She must fend off the Gallery Guard, who want to wipe her memory and send her home; Crumholtzian barbarians, who want to broil her alive; and Kyle’s captors, who want to brainwash her and use her for the same experiments they’re enacting on him. Along the way, she’ll discover that seeing minds is only the beginning of what she and Kyle can do—and that the universe might be better off without them.
