Justyce Scales of the Otherly and Obscura
About the Book
Ever since Luci started experiencing daymares, she has relied on photography to discern reality from hallucination. That’s why the new camera she receives for her sweet sixteen birthday is perfect for the mother-daughter road trip to the hot spring. Or at least it was perfect until the camera was all she had left. A car accident leaves Luci stranded on a northern highway and her mother missing.
Luci doesn’t understand why her face was on that billboard. She knows that the fog is too thick to see anything, including the cliff edge where the car stopped. Her camera helps her navigate once more, but this time she finds an eerily beautiful woman who propels Luci into a parallel world.
What she thought was the Rocky Mountains is now a strange world made of river sharks, Memegwaans, building-sized flowers, underwater houses, and a labyrinth.
Luci must navigate this new world to find her mother, complete three trials to open the exit and try to understand some darker secret before the foreboding plane of existence, Obscura, and a dehumanized woman dig their claws into Luci.
