Summary from Goodreads:
Highly controversial debut novel by Cālix Leigh-Reign is taking the nation by storm! For those who’ve been craving an untapped damsel-in-distress-less Sci-Fi niche – Opaque delivers in this gripping page-turner involving mutated Limbal rings, biokenretic anomalies, mental dysfunction, perplexing Russian ancestry & romance. Cālix takes us on an adventure that begins when 16 year old misanthropic Adam Caspian unknowingly reaches biokenretic puberty, and his supernatural abilities awaken to save him from his murderous intentions. His every thought revolves around the extinction of the human race until mysterious Afro-Russian Carly Wit stumbles into his English class one morning. Adam notices something otherworldly about her immediately but denies the bio-synch taking place inside of him. As he resists their blossoming love, he battles with unnatural thoughts of his mother. Discovering his origin isn’t what he’d thought, he becomes determined to peel back the layers of his lineage and unmasks a multitude of mind-bending secrets along the way.
Excerpt from Chapter 11 [The Unveiling]
She very calmly appears to focus on a patch of grass located approximately twenty feet from us. I don’t see anything in the direction that she’s focusing on right away. But then her crimson glows and she utters something in Russian.
Suddenly, a ball of flaming orange gold fire erupts midair, enveloping the patch of grass. My mouth is agape in awe. She turns her head to gauge my response and smiles.
“Do you believe?”
“Yes! Hell yes.”
I’m smiling ear to ear.
Wow! The fire dims and then disappears completely, leaving no ash behind. How is that possible if the fire is real and not an illusion? She senses my curiosity and continues teaching.
“Biokenretic energy, though controlled by the mind, is fueled by the mutated energy located within our cells. It is an extension of the self and therefore remains under my complete control. So, as I command my pyrokinretic energy to extend outward from me, I also command its return.”
Fuck me upside down, hanging from a tree with a monkey’s dick! UN-BE-LIEVE-ABLE!
