Parasite (Resonance #1)
Hunted by the military she deserted, Krystal Blackwood is desperate to save her sister from the horrors that she left behind in the C.A.M.P. project. Her mission, however, is interrupted when her Psionic powers begin causing paralyzing hallucinations.
Confused and terrified, she knows she can't seek help; Psions are one of the few blacklisted magic types, and she'll be killed on sight if she makes it known. So she flees to Draiix territory, making contact with the one magic user that may be able to help her decipher these visions: the Judge. Upon meeting him, he tells her that she is afflicted by a soul parasite known as a Vaire. She will become one of the horrifically twisted Affected within a month. He agrees to help her purge it, but at a price.
Krystal must make her way into enemy territory and steal one of their prized hylix crystals. But the vehemently anti-magic Lumian Alliance guards much more than just hylix crystals, and this information could cost her more than just her life.
But none of this will matter for long, for as her visions worsen, she begins to wonder whether they are visions at all, or if something far more terrifying is at work.
"Red Queen" and "The Scorch Trials" meet "Stranger Things".
