THE RISER SAGA
BY BECCA C. SMITH
Black swirling holes churning madly in the center of every corpse. This is how eighteen-year-old Chelsan Derée sees the deceased. Her ability to connect to the black spinning holes allows her to control every dead thing within a four-mile radius.
But that’s the least of her problems. It’s 2320 and Chelsan Derée has to survive another year of high school, which for her is pure and utter torture, mainly due to the fact that her schoolmate Jill Forester’s favorite activity is making Chelsan’s life a living hell. If that isn’t enough, Chelsan’s impossible crush on Ryan Vaughn makes her brain do somersaults on a regular basis, especially since she is positive he doesn’t know she exists. And being eighteen Chelsan has to deal with the pressure of whether or not she should take a little pill called Age-pro, which cures aging, making the world eighteen forever and highly over-populated.
When Chelsan’s mother, Janet, is brutally killed, along with everyone else in her trailer park, Chelsan finds out that she was the intended target.
Chelsan must use her power to raise and control the dead to save herself, protect her friends and take down the man responsible for murdering her mother.
Reaper is the second book in the best selling teen series The Riser Saga.
Chelsan Derée thinks she’s finally going to be able to live the normal, healthy life of a teenage girl who can control the dead. She thinks she’s free of psychotic grandparents, serial killers and government assassins. But no such luck - a child named Elisha, who desperately needs Chelsan to rescue her from an I.Q. Farm, is disrupting Chelsan’s dreams.
Chelsan has to help Elisha because she knows the harrows of I.Q. Farms: secret warehouses full of genius children used as lab rats and given Age-pro (a pill that freezes the aging process, making them children forever).
It’s only been two months since Chelsan’s first traumatic ordeal, but a whole new batch of torture has arisen, including constant fighting between her best friend Bill and her boyfriend Ryan, becoming allies with her worst enemy, and having to deal with her grandparents (which is saying a lot since they’re always trying to kill her!).
But all of these things are going to seem pretty minor when Chelsan discovers a plot so horrifying, so terrifying, that it may destroy the world. She will have to learn more about her power to raise and control the dead so she can stop the evil.
Book three in the best selling series The Riser Saga.
It’s been five months since Chelsan Derée’s harrowing ordeal with Elisha. Chelsan hasn’t heard a peep out of her (nor from her sociopathic grandparents), and she is counting her blessings.
But when the new girl in school, Eva, appears to be after Chelsan’s head, Chelsan soon realizes that she’ll never be safe. Elisha is back and she has a new team of 300-year-old assassins to do her dirty work. Their first target is Chelsan’s Gramps: Vice President of Population Control, Geoffrey Turner. Chelsan must use her powers to help save the man who is responsible for killing her mother.
Chelsan and her friends are yet again thrown into peril in order to save the world from Elisha’s sinister plans. And Chelsan’s tentative relationship with Turner is put to the test as they once again have to work together against a common enemy.
Chelsan must defeat Elisha once and for all in the third installment of the bestselling series the Riser Saga.
