Bergenfield, NJ, August 14, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Caterpillar & Gypsy Moth Press announced today the release of the highly anticipated sequel, "The Light of the Dying" by Michelle Reynoso. This young adult, contemporary fantasy novel continues the story of The Girl, the Pendant & the Portal series about a teenage girl with a deadly past who learns to develop her energy-bending powers in order to stop two worlds from colliding.
Thirteen days ago, a deadly house fire killed two local teens. Faith McDaniels was there. When more dead bodies start showing up after the fire, the news reports a serial killer on the loose, but Faith knows this is far bigger than a mere serial killer. She fears “He” has returned.
Now it is up to Faith and her energy-bending powers to stop Him before more people die. But as the chaos grows, so does the unpredictability of Faith’s power. Can she get it under control in time to stop this from escalating into the annihilation of the human race?
When Michelle Reynoso’s first novel EN - a richly imaginative & fast-paced, YA contemporary fantasy about a teen girl discovering an energy-bending power to save two worlds - published in 2018, it received high praise and international recognition (finalist in the International Book Awards & the New York Book Festival) and strong reviews from booksellers, reviewers, librarians, and readers.
