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 flees to her home 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.
The Judge embeds Krystal into The Draylix Hegemon, using her Psionic abilities to serve as a personal telepath to an Auxiliary in the upper echelons of the government. Neck deep in political intrigue, she must dig up enough dirt on the Auxiliary to blackmail him into manufacturing an immensely rare and dangerous hylix crystal: the only thing capable of curing a soul parasite. All while under constant threat of exposure.
But she doesn't have 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.
