“Cālix Leigh-Reign’s writing style is what I loved most about this book. I lost count of how many times I stopped reading and sat in awe…” – Carpe Fiction
“A…rousing, supernatural tale combined with a gleefully eccentric teenage romance.” — Kirkus Reviews
“The story is well visualized and readers will be delighted to find that the plot is not predictable.” — SeriousReading.com
“No casual coming-of-age story. Opaque is laden with angst, psychological power, and is a tale of dysfunction in a world where supernatural abilities can thwart mental illness, where a mysterious Afro-Russian girl who holds the power to divert Adam from the apocalypse he’s preparing for the future.” — Donovan Literary Services
“The moment I read the first sentence of the book’s prologue, I knew I would love this book. I wasn’t wrong.” – CarpeFiction
“A tense page-turner that does more than present a teen’s world. It pulls the reader in to an evolutionary process that is far more than one of transition points, but embraces moral and ethical conundrums..” — Midwest Book Review
With a much saturated Young Adult/Sci-Fi genre, many crave an untapped 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 Rozovsky 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.
Opaque is the first installment in The Scion Saga. Currently available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and every major bookstore in the nation. Join the latest phenomenon sweeping the nation and reserve your copy today!
The highly anticipated sequel to Opaque resumes where Adam struggles to pick up the pieces of his youth after having lost both his biological and adoptive fathers to The Iksha. Discovering that someone he’d once despised is now the only living link to his biological mother, he fights aggressively — temporarily balancing the darkness and light through psychological counseling.
The Iksha momentarily neutralized, the descendants bravely decide to join life on the surface by moving from their underground safe house in International Falls to Piure — hoping to draw out their enemy while planning an infiltration. A biokenretic Hexacuh that is cast around Piure, proves to be a double-edged sword. Though it provides minimal protection, it stifles Adam further by confining him. Even worse, no one has any idea of what the Hex has already trapped within the city limits.
A combination of unbearable nightmares about Terry’s accidental death, Carly’s grief over the loss of her parents, Jo’s developing supernatural abilities, and various teen woes all plague him. Weighing heavily on his mind, seemingly causing it to fracture into dual personalities. Adam tries desperately to prevent his mind from reverting back into the opaque object it once was. When Carly leaves in search of answers and returns with a cure that’s beyond what anyone could’ve expected, it forces Adam to face a part of himself that he never thought he’d live to see.
In the third installment of the Scion Saga Series, Carly abandons her innocence to progress into a mature young adult. Amidst a succession of changes, an unlikely ally will not only reveal the Descendant’s origin, but also the Iksha’s. Believing that the Iksha has been their worst enemy for a millennia, the Descendants now discover a more lethal force. Specular will unveil a realm of history. Exposing secrets, confirming truths, breaking old bonds, and forming new ones.
