Win a SIGNED paperback of Meridian by Amber Kizer!

Life. Death. And the in between.

My name is Meridian Sozu. I am a Fenestra. I have always shared my world with the dead and the dying. But I really didn't understand what that meant until I turned sixteen and glimpsed my own mortality.

Sixteen-year-old Meridian has always been surrounded by death. As a child, insects, mice, and salamanders burrowed into her bedclothes to die. As she grew, the animals got bigger, and soon they were finding her at school to die in her presence. Meridian became an outcast, labeled by her classmates as Reaper, Gravedigger, and Witch. Each death she witnesses weakens her body, and loneliness weakens her spirit.

On her sixteenth birthday, she witnesses a deadly car crash. Though she’s untouched, Meridian's body explodes with the victims’ pain.

Before she can fully recover, Meridian is told that she's a danger to her family and rushed to her great-aunt's house in Revelation, Colorado. It's there that she learns the secret her mother has been hiding her entire life: that she is a Fenestra, the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead. It's crucial that she learn how to transition human souls to the afterlife and preserve the balance between good and evil on earth. But Meridian and her sworn protector and love, Tens, face great danger from the Aternocti, a band of dark forces who capture vulnerable souls on the brink of death and cause chaos. Dark, lovely, and lushly romantic, MERIDIAN introduces a powerful heroine who will entrance readers.

Read my interview with Amber Kizer.
Read Juju's awesome review of Meridian at Tales of Whimsy!
Read an excerpt of Meridian.



Meridian was a book that I truly enjoyed and that meant a great deal to me. It spoke to me in so many ways on a very personal level. Fans of the supernatural will enjoy the fantasy aspect of the Fenestras and Aternocti (light and dark forces that link the human world to that of the dead). Amber Kizer explores themes of love, loss and grief in this darkly romantic book about a powerful girl who must come to terms with her own startling heritage.
  I can't wait for Wildcat Fireflies debuting in July 2011.


In celebration of Meridian's release to paperback, Amber Kizer has generously offered to raffle off one SIGNED PAPERBACK COPY!
