In the Arms of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane
Two years ago, Brenna did the unthinkable. She witnessed the aftermath of a murder and accused her only true friend—the first boy she ever loved—of being a killer.
Now sixteen, Brenna returns to Oklahoma only to discover that Isaac “White Bird” Henry isn’t in juvie. The half-breed outcast is in a mental hospital, frozen in time, locked in his mind at the worst moment of his life. And when Brenna touches him, she’s pulled into his hellish vision quest, seeing terrifying demons and illusions she doesn’t understand.
Feeling isolated and alone, she’s up against the whole town, targeted by bullying former classmates, a bigoted small town sheriff, and a tribe who refuses to help one of their own. But when Brenna realizes she’s as trapped by the past as White Bird is, this time she won’t turn her back on him. She’s the only one who can free them both.
Even if she has to expose her secret—a “gift” she’s kept hidden her whole life.
IN THE ARMS OF STONE ANGELS is available from the author’s website.
Award-winning voice actor, Michelle Ann Dunphy, gives a stunning and emotional performance in this 8 hour 48 minute, unabridged Audible recording of In the Arms of Stone Angels, written by Jordan Dane.
“In her first YA novel, adult thriller writer Dane pens a macabre slow-burner, building tension by alternating Brenna’s first-person narrative with sections in omniscient third; Brenna’s peers, a deputy, and an observant doctor at White Bird’s hospital all contribute insight into the mystery of Heather’s death. Thoroughly eerie, the plot includes flashbacks and nightmares involving crossing over into the spirit world, while Dane’s well-developed characters provide an authentic exploration of guilt, loyalty, and belonging.”
“Deliciously dark! Gritty and suspenseful, In the Arms of Stone Angels is a new take on the paranormal. One of the most compelling and honest voices in young adult fiction!”
—Sophie Jordan, New York Times Bestselling Author of Firelight (Harper Teen Sept 2010)
“In the Arms of Stone Angels is eerie, dark and rich with unforgettable characters. A page turning suspense story that will haunt you long after you finish it. Jordan Dane is a fresh new voice in young adult paranormal fiction.”
—P. C. Cast, New York Times Bestseller of the House of Night Series
