Five - Out of the Dark
(Five #1)
Published: August 20th 2013
Genres: YA, Paranormal
Five teenagers who’ve recently discovered they have magical powers and are living in the Seattle underground feel it’s their responsibility to protect unsuspecting humans from otherworldly foes. Things are going well until Johnathan, their unofficial leader and the boy sixteen year old Paige is in love with, is bitten by a changeling – the venomous saliva causing him to metamorphose into a ravening beast with each full moon. Paige vows that, no matter the cost, she will find a way to cure Johnathan of the evil that has embedded itself in his soul.

Johnathan’s monthly transformation and daily personality roller coaster isn’t the only problem they have to deal with. The Five are also gearing up to face their toughest and most dangerous enemy yet—a powerful and ruthless Warlock who will go to any means, including high school, to build his Dark Army.

“Tell us the basics surrounding the Five’s Magical Powers.”
Well, they have no idea where their powers came from. Paige’s powers just manifest at a time of intense anger and fear. They access their powers by visualizing what they want to happen, infusing it with ‘magical will’ and, usually, saying word that describes what they want to happen. They use channeling rods to help them channel some of their spells—the rods give them better aim.

The limitations of their powers are that, first, they are learning as they go. They don’t know what all they can and can’t do and they learn dangerously through hit and miss. Also, using magic wears them out physically and, well, magically. They can reach a point where they can’t conjure a spell if they’re too magically exhausted.

 Holli Anderson has a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing—which has nothing to do with writing, except maybe by adding some pretty descriptive injury and vomit scenes to her books. She discovered her joy of writing during a very trying period in her life when escaping into make-believe saved her. She enjoys reading any book she gets her hands on, but has a particular love for anything fantasy.

Along with her husband, Steve, and their four sons, she lives in Grantsville, Utah—the same small town in which she grew up.
