A Neon Darkness, the second Bright Sessions novel from creator Lauren Shippen, features villain Damien, who can make anyone want what he wants.
Robert Gorham always gets what he wants. But the power of persuasion is as potent a blessing as it is a curse.
Robert is alone until a group of strangers who can do impossible things—produce flames without flint, conduct electricity with their hands, and see visions of the past—welcome him. They call themselves Unusuals and they give Robert a new name too: DAMIEN.
Finally, finally he belongs. As long as he can keep his power under control.
But control is a sacrifice he might not be willing to make.
“A deliciously dark, genre-bending look at the thrill and danger of intoxicating power. Shippen creates a world—and a family—that you'd do just about anything to be a part of.” —Charlotte Nicole Davis, author of The Good Luck Girls
"Reading this book hurt. As if under Damien's terrifying influence, I was drawn into A Neon Darkness and then, in the aftershocks, I was left questioning what I wanted and for whom and why. An unsettling tale about belonging and accountability." —K.M. Szpara, author of Docile
