To say Leath is traveling light is an understatement. She's only bringing three things on her trip. One is a silver heart locket - a gift from her long-time best-friend-turned-boyfriend Victor Santana. Next is a wedding token in the shape of a J, from James Turner. And of course, she's packing her pistol. That's it. She knows that when she leaves Woodvine, even her own mother may not remember her in the shifted reality that will left behind.
But Leath's driven now by something that eclipses everything else, something that she just got back: her memories. And now that she remembers James - she won't stop searching until she finds him.
A fast-paced fantasy romance with rich characters and immersive storytelling, Searching is the second book in the Fading series by award-winning author Cindy Cipriano.
"Transcending genre cliches, this series opener unfolds with a gripping emotional intensity, raising expectations for future installments." - Kirkus Reviews
