Synopsis from Goodreads
Synopsis: From the author of the New York Times bestselling ghostgirl series, the start to a captivating and haunting teen trilogy about three girls who become entangled with an enigmatic boy—a boy who believes he is a saint.What if martyrs and saints lived among us? And what if you were told you were one of them?
Meet Agnes, Cecilia, and Lucy. Three lost girls, each searching for something. But what they find is Beyond Belief. The story begins in PRECIOUS BLOOD and continues in PASSIONARIES, available 1/7/14.
and now, please meet Cecelia!
What would you do if someone told you that you were a saint? Would you believe them?
In my novel, PRECIOUS BLOOD this is the fantastical and life-changing proposition posed by the mysterious Sebastian, to Cecilia, Lucy and Agnes, three Brooklyn teenagers who are the heroines of the story. Of the three, runaway rocker Cecilia, would seem the hardest to convince. She believes in one thing, and one thing only, her music.
CECILIA of THE BLESSED Trilogy
No-nonsense Cecilia Trent wears her heart, her scars and her ambition on her studded sleeves. Already a trendsetting force on the super competitive Brooklyn indie music scene, she squeezes out sparks from her ratty electric guitar night after night in dive bar after dive bar, her music the only thing that fills the growing emptiness inside of her. Music is in her blood, it’s her life. She willingly shares a bottle and a bed with whomever she feels can offer a momentary comfort and maybe even a shot at the big time, or at least a living. She is no stranger to the hard knock streets and determined to do whatever is necessary, paying whatever emotional cost to make it. She never expected however, that the price of admission might be her soul.
