Wilder than Lightning by Rachel Caren Kisala Available April 17

Author: Rachel Caren Kisala

In a just world, being on the street where a shooter opens fire should have been the worst thing ever to happen to Kara Richards. Okay, in a REALLY just world, even that shouldn’t have happened, but given that it did, it should not have been followed by mysterious deaths, disappearances, decapitation…demons? When did demons start being a thing that a girl with a college degree, a steady job, and a tiny apartment in the big city had to worry about?

Thankfully this crazy week also brings a guy with a car into her life, because her own two feet and Boston’s Green Line trains probably aren’t up to the job of keeping her one step ahead of whatever’s coming after her.
