The Sending

The Sending

A city's peace is shattered when two university students go missing, and only Daneel and his friends know the shocking truth of what happened. Finding themselves under attack, Daneel leads them in a race to escape the mounting violence.

Mara is willing to kill for the beliefs of the faction that raised her. But as she seeks out her mark, using a rare, mystical form of travel known as the Sending, Mara discovers a powerful connection that challenges the truth of everything she’s been taught.

While Daneel fights to protect those he cares for, Mara must choose whether to cling to the ideology of her home—or open her scarred heart to a searing attraction and the promise of a new life.

Praise for The Sending

The Sending reads like a dystopian Romeo and Juliet where strong, full characters from very different places inevitably collide with passion and conflict. Salguero fills a fresh, vibrant world with a nerve-tingling fast plot. Prepare to be immersed.

~Tamara Ward, author of Hidden Betrayal

The Sending is a thrilling, fast-paced, science fiction-romance that's impossible to put down. Edge-of-your-seat action scenes, and a romantic attraction so intense that it will make you want to turn down the air conditioning, The Sending is a great read that left me hungry for more. I loved this book!

~Sterling R. Walker, author of The Orphan Ship

She slashed with the knife, slammed with her fist, and tried to get a hold on him. He struggled clumsily, but he was strong and quick to shake the fog of sleep. His intensity matched hers as they pushed and fumbled at each other. Strong fingers found her wrist, digging in, communicating they understood the stakes of the fight.

Mara fought to make her muscles respond the way she was trained, but the haze of hate made her reckless.

She brought a knee up, solidly connecting with his side. He let go of her wrist, bucked to push her off. She held on as they rolled from bed to floor, entangled together in the sheets.

Mara yanked, heard the bedding tear, and grunted as her hand and knife cleared the fabric. Far off, somewhere on the very edge of conscious thought, Mara knew she had to regain control—that whatever had overcome her was making her careless.

She screamed with frustration, needed to end him. Still, her swings were wild and her aim went wide. One shadow blended into another as she struck out again and again. Exhaustion threatened as she used the last of her strength to roll on top of him. Knife gripped in both hands, Mara plunged it downward.

Then the world exploded and went black.
