Book Blast & Giveaway for Lucid by Natalie Roers


Lucid by Natalie Roers
Being hailed by critics as an intelligent new voice in young adult fiction, Roers' debut novel tells the anything but ordinary, coming of age story of a small town, teen aged, misfit named Travis Hunter.

Disfigured at birth and ostracized at school, Travis dreams of acceptance and secretly yearns for the affection of a beautiful young woman named Corrine. When a mysterious doctor promises to help Travis through something called lucid dreaming, Travis suddenly finds himself ushered into a secret society called "The Lucid", a collection of social outcasts like himself, who have created their own world inside of dreams.

When Travis discovers he is able to bring Corrine into these dreams, he gets more than he ever bargained for and soon finds himself learning the secrets of love and life in a fantastic unconscious world.

An instant classic,
 Lucid is a timeless story of self-acceptance with a fresh paranormal twist.

Book Excerpt


Corrine opened her hand wide and I touched my index finger to the back of the bird. The scales were very hard but smooth to the touch. It was the coolest thing!

But as its eyes turned up to me, I felt my stomach drop. The bird’s eyes were made of stone! They were dark green with blood red spots—exactly the same as the talisman.

“Isn’t it amazing?!” she exclaimed. “I made it!” Corrine swelled with pride at the proclamation.

“You made what?” I stammered, trying to collect myself.

“Here, I’ll show you how it works.” With the bird cupped in one palm, she took one of my hands with her own and placed it over the bird. “Think of something,” she whispered.

“What?”

“Close your eyes, and concentrate really hard on something. Think of anything you can hold in your hand.”

I gave her a sideways stare and reluctantly closed my eyes.

“Are you thinking of something?” she asked.

“Give me a second,” I said. It was hard to think about anything except her hand on top on my own. It was intoxicating-the warm sensation of where our skin made contact, the spaces between her fingers. I could hear her inhale and exhale, and I knew without even looking at her that her eyes were closed as
well.
