Written by Suzanne van RooyenGenre: Young Adult, Science Fiction
Since the day the planet Obscura appeared in the sky, Kyle has been shifting between realities. In one, his boyfriend Danny is in a wheelchair, their friend Shira is dead, and Mya is a bitch. In the other, Shira is alive and they're friends with benefits, while Danny is dead, and Mya is a friend.
In this second reality, Kyle's body is decorated with scars he collected in the fire where Danny died. It is increasingly difficult for fire-loving Kyle to keep track of the days as Obscura is getting closer.
OBSCURA BURNING is a whodunit, it is a quest for identity and sanity, a tale of being gay coming out at 18 in two realities at a time. While Kyle is getting to understand that the fate of the worlds as he know them is up to him, he is also realizing that it might not be as simple as choosing between Danny and Shira.
OBSCURA BURNING is a suspenseful novel. The writing is fluid like mercury. As a matter of fact, temperature runs high in New Mexico.
Readers will find themselves speculating about Kyle's next step in each reality, looking forward to the details leaking between these realities. And when we reach the end of the book and start thinking that maybe it was just a bad dream, a coping mechanism to deal with a bad situation, the author pulls out a fifth ace out of her sleeve.
