I believe in ghosts. I stayed at a famous hotel in San Antonio, known for ghosts and strange events. The one night, I woke up to see a person sitting in a chair in our room. This person could only be seen when looking out of the side of your vision. I could recall everything down to the color of his shirt.
Kellie Wallace's new release has a heroine who has seen a ghost and experienced supernatural events. But now she's on the radar for evil... Take a look and see for yourself....
After the tragic drowning of her brother eighteen years ago, Aleida Fuller has lived her life communicating with the supernatural. She can see and speak to the dead, as if they were still walking the earth. Despite being welcomed in the spirit world, Aleida lives a closeted existence. Her reclusive mother refuses to accept her abilities and the local townsfolk think she’s a fraud.
When mysterious traveler Rafe Jenner arrives in town, Aleida’s dull life is irrevocably changed. He’s handsome, strange, and oddly alluring, with piercing eyes that turn red in the dark…
As Aleida and Rafe are teamed up to solve a crime for the Sheriff’s Office, a great evil lurks in the shadows. Bloodthirsty for Aleida’s soul, Hell-bound demon Albinus roams the earth, shedding blood and taking lives in search of her. He will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants. Aleida must draw on her physic abilities and her newfound alliance with Rafe to battle Hell’s agents before her soul is lost forever.
“Is the spirit talking to you, Aleida?”
Aleida Fuller wandered the smouldering crash site, stepping over a curved hubcap and a pool of gasoline leaking into the asphalt. The red hatchback was completely smashed into a crushed shell, shards of metal scattered over the road. A hint of burning rubber lingered in the air. She followed the ribboned grooves in the cement toward the figure covered by a white sheet. She crouched next to the body and lowered her hand on the sheer fabric, pulling her gaze from the victim’s weeping family on the curb.
Nosy bystanders, including half the sheriff’s department and EMTs had stopped to watch her. Aleida hated having an audience, the attention interfering with her readings. The heat of their gaze prickled the back of her neck, spreading goosebumps across her skin. Normally, she relied on her body’s natural responses to connect to the spirit world, but today, she felt nothing out of the ordinary. She turned to Deputy Sheriff Ted Walker, who stood nearby, his expression passive yet optimistic.
“I can’t hear anything,” she said. “The deceased’s moved into the light already or its energy’s too faint.”
Ted’s face flickered annoyance underneath his Stetson hat. “Dammit,” he hissed. “I was hoping to give Don’s wife some answers on what happened.”
“She won’t be getting them right away,” Aleida replied. “Her husband’s recently passed so his energy is weak. It takes a lot of effort for a spirit to form an apparition or make contact. Think of them like newborn babies. Babies don’t walk right out of the womb, do they?”
“I guess not.”
