 I just started reading Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston. Frozen is the first book in the Heart of Dread series.

Frozen (Heart of Dread, #1)Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz

Nat knelt to revive it, but it’s small lifeless body was already cold. Dead. It had been so beautiful, and now it was gone. She looked up and glared at the soldier. “You killed it!”

A little more than two lines, but that’s okay.

Hmmm, haven’t done this in awhile. Anywho, here’s my teaser:

Out of the corner of her eye, Josie thought she saw an object pass by in the darkness outside the kitchen window.

It was just a split-second image, as if something had been illuminated by a camera flash before fading back into the darkness of the night, but Josie could have sworn she saw what looked like a large wing soar past the window. Then in the distance, another animalistic scream.

~ 3:59  by Gretchen McNeil

The quote is taken from chapter 11, which is also the chapter I just finished. So far, things have just been about Josie dealing with life, but I think things are going to take a much darker turn now. Ooooh, I can’t wait!

Book Blurb:

15836516Josie Byrne’s life is spiraling out of control. Her parents are divorcing, her boyfriend Nick has grown distant, and her physics teacher has it in for her. When she’s betrayed by the two people she trusts most, Josie thinks things can’t get worse.

Until she starts having dreams about a girl named Jo. Every night at the same time—3:59 a.m.

Jo’s life is everything Josie wants: she’s popular, her parents are happily married, and Nick adores her. It all seems real, but they’re just dreams, right? Josie thinks so, until she wakes one night to a shadowy image of herself in the bedroom mirror – Jo.

Josie and Jo realize that they are doppelgängers living in parallel universes that overlap every twelve hours at exactly 3:59. Fascinated by Jo’s perfect world, Josie jumps at the chance to jump through the portal and switch places for a day.

But Jo’s world is far from perfect. Not only is Nick not Jo’s boyfriend, he hates her. Jo’s mom is missing, possibly insane. And at night, shadowy creatures feed on human flesh.

By the end of the day, Josie is desperate to return to her own life. But there’s a problem: Jo has sealed the portal, trapping Josie in this dangerous world. Can she figure out a way home before it’s too late?

From master of suspense Gretchen McNeil comes a riveting and deliciously eerie story about the lives we wish we had – and how they just might kill you.
