Shadows of the Mind
Derant Holmes has lived with his adoptive parents in London his whole life. He's normal. Almost. For some reason, he has the ability to read the mind of any person he touches. Shortly after turning 18, he receives a letter telling him that his birth mother died about a year ago and left her farm to him. Now, he travels to America to live on this farm. Here he finds out that the house was never meant to be his and it was only given to him because his twin sister died a few years back. On top of that, there are strange stories of blood-sucking creatures floating about the town and there seems to be a strange connection between these creatures and his dead sister....
Emmalyne Marwick's blood ran cold two years ago. Kidnapped by her now "Sisters", she hunts the forests surrounding the farm she grew up on. Her change has brought some advantages as well as disadvantages. Instead of just being able to shift into objects, she can now shift into plants. She still hasn't been able to figure out how to shift into animals though. Still, she is faster, stronger, and immortal. But that does not always make one happy. Finding out about her mother's death, she knows that she will never be able to own the farm. Everyone thinks she's dead. Soon, news reaches her that her twin brother is coming to take over. This brings envy and anger in her, knowing that she was the one who deserved to run the broken down place. She leaves the forest to seek answers about both her brother, and the dangers lurking beneath the shadows.
