About the book:
Everyone has a little darkness in them. A small voice that tells them to lie, to steal, to cheat… To kill. Addy Wilson sees and feels that darkness in everything around her. It consumes her, it eats at her, it terrifies her, and it excites her.
Evan Cooper believes he sees spirits. Spirits that protect him, that talk to him… That kill for him. So why is that he is always the one to wake up with blood on his hands?
Addy and Evan meet in Abby House – Asylum for the criminally insane. They do everything together. They will protect each other, they will go anywhere together… Would they kill for each other?
Can they escape the confines before they succumb to their own darkness? Can they find a love to cure each other? Can they save each other before it’s too late?
About the Author:
Sunshine, surf and family are the corner stone of Nicky’s world. Being born and raised on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia gave her the opportunity to chase her dream of photography and later novel writing. She fell in love with fantasy and dystopian and crafted stories with strong men and powerful women. Her debut novel Destinata was released on October 15, 2014 with several short stories following. Nicole now has more than ten stories published, with a vision for more in 2016. When she is not busy being an author, you will find her using her various creative abilities; such as photography, graphic design, and 3d game art and animation, and chasing after her two young girls.
This is not my life…
This is not my world…
This is not me…

The sound of the waves crashing upon the shore thunders inside my head. I look up to see the setting sun upon the horizon; the seagulls are tucked in for the night, the beachgoers packing up and heading home. The water is the only constant. That and the beating of my heart, though it remains unseen as to how long that will continue. My darkest hour is upon me and just like the shadows cast by the statues that stick to the walls of the repulsive domicile I escaped from, the darkness is stuck to me. Not an inch of light filters through to my soul, only darkness… Always darkness.
I like the beach, it’s calming and it reminds me of being a child when things were simpler. When my parents still loved me, when I had friends, when I wasn’t caged in. This moment is freeing. I’m free. So why do I still feel so trapped? No matter, that’s all about to change.
