The Light Keeper Series #1
By- Kelly Hall

After a hurricane destroys her home, Lily Jordan is ready for life to get back to normal. That would be easy if her mother’s recent engagement hadn’t landed her in a house along Southeast Texas’ most haunted ghost road. The secluded scenic road is steeped in rich history and legends, but when Lily is given an old diary on her birthday, will she find that those legends hold more for her future than she’s bargained for?


With the help of new friends, Hunter and Owen, and forbidden love, Talon, will she uncover dark secrets from the past and find the key to her own gifts? Is it fate or circumstance that brought Lily to her new home? Normal gives way to the paranormal in book one of the Light Keeper series where mystery and suspense keeps you guessing until the very last page.

  


The Secret of Strange Waters
The Light Keeper Series # 2
By- Kelly Hall
Genre- YA Paranormal

Unfortunately for Lily Jordan, being a Light Keeper doesn't come with an instruction manual, but neither does being sixteen. While learning to use her powers, she’s confronted with unforeseen obstacles and forced to break her own rules in order to save her circle of friends.
With her mom’s wedding on the horizon, will misinterpreted visions create new enemies who could threaten Lily’s exposure? Will death and heartache ruin the big day? For Lily, the answers only lead to impossible decisions. Does she embrace her powers or abandon them for false normalcy?
Kelly Hall’s second book, The Secret of Strange Waters, proves paranormal powers aren’t always a blessing.

   



EXCERPT

I struggled to steady my breathing. I’d seen something. Not just the Shadow but something else. What? A flash of light for sure, but was this the Bragg Ghost Light that Granny was talking about? I wasn’t sure, but I was positive that I didn’t want to figure it out in my dark room all alone. I considered my options. Option one: I could stay in bed under the covers, scared and awake, sweating my butt off, hoping that whatever it was out there in the darkness wouldn’t come back and kill me. Option two: I could scream like a baby and wake the whole house and then try to explain it without sounding crazy. That wouldn’t be a good idea. Mom would freak out and Talon would just make fun of me. I’d probably never hear the end of it. Option three: I could make a run for it. Talon’s room was across the hall from mine. Maybe he wasn’t asleep yet. Maybe he would help me figure out what it was. Maybe this is just an excuse to be near him. And what if I didn’t make it? What if something grabbed me in the darkness as I crossed the hall? I peeked out of the covers into the darkness and quickly hid my head again, trying to re-think options one and two. I tried to distract myself. I thought of Talon’s dark brown eyes. The only darkness I can tolerate, I told myself. Option three won out as I took a deep breath and jumped from my bed. I landed halfway across my room and ran so fast across the hall that my feet barely hit the floor. Talon was sprawled out face-down on his navy plaid comforter. I rushed over to him and grabbed his arm. “Talon, wake up!” He startled awake as I shook him. “What are you doing, Lily?” he asked, his voice rough with sleep. “There’s something in my room!” I was out of breath and trying to whisper.
