Querying

Disparate Soul – Sixteen-year-old Christine Whitmeyer thought her magical abilities she’s been keeping under wraps was what made her heritage mysterious – not the fact that, unlike her schoolmates, she’s multiracial in a small suburban community. But while it isn’t as outwardly obvious, her abilities prove equally disruptive.

Adding to the chaos, her childhood friend, Oliver, suddenly barges back into her life to beg for her help after discovering a timeline-altering paintbrush has been stolen, by a culture she didn’t even know existed.  Christine is the key to finding it, using her magical power of persuasion. Along the way, she discovers her quest for the paintbrush is much more complicated than she imagined. She has a sword-wielding aunt whose abilities surpass her own, and who is crucial to stopping an unhinged politician – if Christine can retrieve the paintbrush and repaint the future timeline. Except her aunt doesn’t want to be found, nor does she want any part of the world she escaped long ago.

To accomplish their goal, Christine and Oliver must navigate secret societies and family feuds, futuristic monsters, and Christine’s new boyfriend, who may or may not be who he says he is. YA (Young Adult) low fantasy novel. Book 1 of The Sacred Brushes series
