YA Indie Spotlight: G. P. Ching

Hi Everyone!

I missed the YA Indie Spotlight post on Friday, so I'm putting one up today, instead.

Today, I'm featuring another DarkSide Publishing author, G. P. Ching. You can find the other DarkSide girls (Megg Jensen and Karly Kirkpatrick) on the blog as well. G. P. Ching is the author of the YA novel The Soulkeepers.


There are no accidents.

When fifteen-year-old Jacob Lau is pulled from the crumpled remains of his mother's car, no one can explain why he was driving or why the police can't find his mother's body. Made a ward of his uncle and thousands of miles from home, a beautiful and mysterious neighbor, Dr. Abigail Silva, offers to use her unique abilities to help him find his mom. In exchange, she requires Jacob to train as a Soulkeeper, a biologically gifted warrior charged with protecting human souls. He agrees to her demands, desperate for any clue to the mystery of his mother's disappearance. But soon Jacob finds himself trapped in a web of half-truths, and questions Dr. Silva's motives for helping him.
