Weapons training and winter formals...a deadly combination.
All Mia ever wanted was to fit in at Whispering Woods High. But being a portal-finder who dates a guy from another dimension sort of makes it hard. A month ago her brother disappeared, and agents from the IIA began policing people's movements through dimensions. She'd trusted Dr. Bleeker from the local university when he'd told her the IIA were the bad guys. But even a girl with an extraordinary ability to sense things can make mistakes.
Now two people are dead, and as a portal gatekeeper for the IIA, Mia needs to find Dr. Bleeker before he hurts anyone else. And her boyfriend Regulus, an Agent for the IIA, carries secrets of his own. Between learning about weaponry, finding the perfect dress for the winter formal, and catching bad guys, who has time to fit in?

❤ Excerpt Reveal: Whisper of Memory ❤
The dead leaves formed an ocher carpet on the ground that spoke in crunchy whispers as I backed up two steps. Watching the leaves begin to whirl like a waterspout in the ocean, I waited. I identified the spot before I heard the buzzing or saw the air lifting the leaves. Even before I saw the sienna-orange veil drape over the ground, the tingly sensation moving through me from head to toe told me it was a portal.
I smiled in anticipation of seeing Regulus today. I wanted to spend every afternoon and weekends together, but he had college classes, and I had high school. Next year would be different. We'd attend Whispering Woods U together.
Daydreaming about my boyfriend could be a dangerous mistake.
The glint of the metallic blade almost blinded me before I ducked to avoid losing my head. Most dimensional travelers carried something quite a bit smaller. More portable. The Amazon-sized woman standing in front of me carried the samurai sword like it was a Gucci purse. But I respected the blade and the woman. I never underestimate the danger of any situation. Last week, a traveler, otherwise known as a Slip, had beaned me using a weapon similar to a slingshot. It hadn't mattered that he'd looked like a seven-year-old boy. The Slip had aimed the weapon with deadly accuracy and left me with a bruise the size of a baseball.
Now I said, "You should back up and return to your home, lair, crib…whatever you call it. You are unauthorized to travel to this area." I thought my voice sounded firm, yet pleasant, like an airline stewardess telling an unruly passenger to return to her seat.
The woman's eyes widened, and she tilted her head. She stopped circling me and planted her feet in a fighter's stance. She looked to my left and right and smiled, as though realizing I was alone.
A whistling sound was followed by her surprised expression before she fell to the ground on her knees and crumpled in an unconscious heap.
My boyfriend had disabled her temporarily.
"Mia, what do you think you are doing?" Exasperation flowed from his words. Regulus walked around the body on the ground toward me. Arizona strolled two steps behind him with a carefree smile directed my way and lowered the weapon he held. The small silver box looked more like a cell phone than a tool capable of delivering deadly watts of electrical current.
"Just stalling her." I folded my arms across my chest. "Plus, she caught me standing here. What did you expect me to do? Run and hide until you guys arrived?"
"Yes," they both answered.
