Fluorescence: Fire Starter, by P. Anastasia
264 pages, with a 5-star rating from 14 reviews
Book 1 of the Fluorescence tetralogy.
Fluorescence lives in her bloodstream. It’s unpredictable and could flare up anywhere, anytime, exposing her secret to the world. Alice was a normal teenager until a dying race of aliens chose her and a handful of others to help preserve an endangered form of bioluminescent DNA known as Fluorescence. Now she and the others must hide their "condition" from the rest of the world, while trying to learn the truth behind the mysterious living light.
"My name's Alice Green.
It's not my real name, but if you knew what was
going on, you'd understand why I need to be careful.
I've been infected with bioluminescence--fluorescent energy. I can't control when it appears. It's volatile,
and that's what scares me the most. May this never happen to you or to anyone you care about.
I hope you will never wake to discover this fire burning beneath your skin--a spark of living, breathing color crackling through your veins.
I hope, for your sake, you never meet me."
In an engaging and unique genre all its own, Fluorescence is a striking blend of audacious young love, urban fantasy and sci-fi.
Each full-length novel in the series is narrated by a different character, driving the story forward in a new and exciting way. It evolves from a quiet beginning into a gritty, unabashed look at real-life limitations encountered while harboring a volatile secret.
