In the Arms of Stone Angels

Two years ago I did a terrible thing. I accused my best friend of being a killer after seeing him kneeling over a girl’s body. That moment and that outcast boy still haunt me.

Now my mom is forcing me back to Oklahoma and I can’t get White Bird out of my mind. But when I find out he’s not in juvie—that he’s in a mental hospital, locked in his tormented brain at the worst moment of his life—I can’t turn my back on him again.

No one wants me to see him. My mom doesn’t trust me. The town sheriff still thinks I was involved in the murder. And the other kids who knew the dead girl are after me.

I’m as trapped as White Bird. And when I touch him, I get sucked into his living hell, a vision quest of horrifying demons and illusions of that night. Everything about him scares me now, but I have to do something. This time I can’t be a coward. This time I have to be his friend.

Even if I get lost, as well…

 

“In the stillness of headstones,
Darkness is my blanket.
And forever is an endless song.
In the arms of stone angels, I’m not afraid.
Because finally and completely,
I belong.”
—Brenna Nash

Awards/Recognition

“In her first YA novel, adult thriller writer Dane pens a macabre tale. Thoroughly eerie, the plot includes flashbacks and nightmares involving crossing over into the spirit world, while Dane’s well-developed characters provide an authentic exploration of guilt, loyalty, and belonging.”
—Publishers Weekly

Bookurt’s WOOT LIST of 2011: To earn that honor, according to Bookyurt, it has to amp Katie up, geek her out, and leave her ridiculously happy. Katie summed up by saying, “This book took me by storm. I didn’t think any YA paranormal could surprise me at this stage, but did this book ever—and wow it packs quite a punch. I’ve already re-read it twice.”

On a Dark Wing

The choices I had made led to the moment when fate took over. I would learn a lesson I wasn’t prepared for. And Death would be my willing teacher.

Five years ago, Abbey Chandler cheated Death. She survived a horrific car accident, but her “lucky” break came at the expense of her mother’s life and changed everything. After she crossed paths with Death—by taking the hand of an ethereal boy made of clouds and sky—she would never be normal again.

Now she’s the target of Death’s ravens and an innocent boy’s life is on the line. When Nate Holden—Abbey’s secret crush—starts to climb Alaska’s Denali, the Angel of Death stalks him because of her.

And Abbey finds out the hard way that Death never forgets.

Praise

“Dane’s On a Dark Wing is a great new tale about death, love and starting over. It’s an exciting mix that will remind readers of Bree Despain’s The Lost Saint and Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers. Paranormal fans will love this. A compelling page turner.”
—RT Magazine in a YA Featured Review

“Forget the Grim Reaper, Jordan Dane’s version of Death is a handsome boy with a radiant body and irresistible blue eyes. On a Dark Wing is a gripping paranormal thriller with all the emotion of budding teenage romance and Abbey brings plenty of attitude to the story. Intelligent, emotive storytelling offering a very different side to death.”

Voices told Lucas Darby to run. Voices no one else can hear. He’s warned his sister not to look for him, but Rayne refuses to let her troubled brother vanish. On her desperate search, she meets Gabriel Stewart, a runaway with mysterious powers and far too many secrets. Rayne can’t explain her crazy need to trust the strange yet compelling boy—even though he scares her.

They discover Lucas is running from the Believers, a fanatical church secretly hunting psychic kids—gifted “Indigo” teens feared to be the next evolution of mankind. Now Rayne’s only hope is Gabe, who is haunted by an awakening power—a force darker than either of them imagine—that could doom them all.
