See how it all begins...

In this pulse-pounding prequel to the Night Sky series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann and her daughter Melanie Brockmann, Skylar has her first brush with Destiny. She's about to meet a boy who will change her life—and a girl who wants to end it.

I know her.
Know her from inside the dreams. Inside those terrible, murderous, bloody dreams. I've heard her-screaming, her voice mixing in an awful chorus with all those other girls. Little girls.

Please, God.
That's what one of the little girls keeps saying, in the dream that is not just a dream. Please, God.
But I know better. There's no escaping this fate. This is destiny.
I must kill Skylar.

Skylar Reid is the new girl at school. Her mom just moved them to Florida—aka The Land of the Living Dead where the average age of her new neighbors was seventy-five—to start over. Skylar is not a fan of the change or her total lack of friends. Until she meets Calvin, a funny, sarcastic boy who doesn't let being in a wheelchair stop him from verbally shredding their preppy classmates. Skylar's just about to decide her new school's not a total loss when an odd girl wearing an oversized trench coat in the murderous Southern heat declares, "You're one of us." And then tries to kill her.

“Dangerous Destiny” is a prequel novella to “Night Sky.” This is a series that is being cowritten by a mother daughter duo. Skylar Reid is a high school junior from Connecticut who is now living in Florida. Skylar hates being the new girl. She hates Florida even more. Her mom is a health  fanatic. Skylar’s mom is also very overprotective so she makes sure that Skylar gets on the bus okay and doesn’t let her walk to school. Skylar learns that there are tese people called “Greater-Thans” who possess an array of superpowers that must be tamed or things can go terribly wrong. Skylar learns that she is one of these “Greater-thans.” She may be in danger because she has theses abilities.

“Dangerous Destiny” is a great prequel novella. I have to say that it reminded me a lot of James Patterson’s Maximum Ride series. I think that “Dangerous Destiny” is definitely a great start to the series and that the characters are going to be amazing. I can’t wait to find out more. This is definitely a thrilling tale and I think many people will be addicted to it’s goodness.
