It’s been six years since Dylanie and her family visited a Civil War site and the place came alive with cannon fire. Problem was, no one could hear it but her.
Now she’s sixteen, her dad’s moved out, her mom’s come out of the closet and Dylan’s got a spot on Paranormal Teen, a reality TV show filming at historic Oakleigh Mansion. She’ll spend a weekend with two other psychic teens—Jake and Ashley—learning how to control her abilities.
None of them realized how much their emotional baggage would put them at the mercy of Oakleigh’s resident spirits, or that they’d find themselves pawns in the 150-year-old battle for the South’s legendary Confederate gold. Each must conquer their personal ghosts to face down Jackson, a seductive spirit who will do anything to protect the gold’s current location and avenge a heinous attack that destroyed his family.
Advance reviews for Shrapnel....
"OMG! < It's true, I said it. I love everything written by this amazing author and Shrapnel is no different. With her foray into gritty paranormal, we see another side of Lawton’s writing personality, and you’ll be thankful for her creative schizophrenia because her imagination for ‘dark and twisty’ is wonderful. (If not a little disturbing)
I really enjoyed this story’s no nonsense heroine, hot and super-cool hero with a hilarious sense of humor, premise and surprising secondary characters. The mystery kept me turning pages almost as much as the 'will they or won’t they' romance. It’s not the same old thing. Mucho awesomeness!"
"A haunting, gritty paranormal dripping with voice. I was immediately sucked into the world she created and was on the edge of my seat racing to finish it."
