Spotlight On: Black Atonement, by Sasha Hibbs

Black Atonement
Release Date: 09/26/14
Evernight TeenSummary from Goodreads:

The burden of Dave’s girlfriend’s death pushes Brandi, the Seraph of
Love, to abduct David Howels hoping she can protect Dave from his murderous  father, Ragnar, and also atone for all her sins. Leaving a trail of broken  hearts, will Brandi be able to show Dave that all in life is not lost in death?

Twists and turns abound as Brandi discovers her own shocking revelation: That  Dave has been her soul mate all along.

Separating Dave and herself from their allies on the threshold of the
apocalypse, Brandi turns to an old friend for help-a witch-to aid her in her
quest to prepare Dave to face his worst fears and her own. Filled with curses,
secrets that threaten to destroy everything, Brandi must find forgiveness from
within before she can find love with a boy she’s forced to hate her. In the
past, healing a broken heart would’ve been easy, but now faced with the task of
healing Dave’s broken heart while not exposing her own, Brandi learns why love is
truly the greatest gift of all.

Excerpt:

“There is only one way to break the bonds that hold you, and it cannot be undone,” Brandi said.

“What?” Dave asked. “Why?”

Brandi stretched her hand out, spreading her palm against the invisible force that separated them. Dave looked at her for what felt like an eternity and then he placed his open palm over hers.

“Do you love me?” Brandi asked, not cloaking the sadness in her voice.

Dave looked at her, opened his mouth and then closed it, saying nothing.

Brandi gave a sad laugh, the sound that signaled her recognition of her love going unreciprocated. After Lucy died, in that horrifying moment, Brandi knew Dave was her soul mate. Over their time together, running and staying in motel after motel, at the Rathbone mansion, the dance they shared together, the tender kiss they shared together, Brandi knew she loved Dave. Brandi knew in her shattered heart, Dave was the only one who would ever reside there. She had braced herself for Dave not loving her back. She had made peace with that cold hard fact a while ago. But hearing his silence only sealed her decision to leave him and take comfort in knowing that what she was doing to him now was for the best.

Brandi lowered her hand, her fingers trailing slowly down the invisible wall. This was goodbye.

“The only way for you to get through is to love me,” Brandi gave a sad laugh, her heart breaking over and over again. “And I’ve made sure that will never happen.” Brandi’s voice was barely above a whisper, “You were perfect. Goodbye Dave.”

Brandi turned quickly, walking away toward the gate.

“Don’t do this, Brandi! I’ve not had the chance! You know this isn’t fair,” Dave screamed after her, but Brandi wasn’t listening.

She reached the gate. Placing the key in the lock, she heard the gate groan, the ground below rumbling, Dave’s screams diminishing.

She thought of Dave, touching her lips where his had been, and plunged herself into her worst nightmare.

About the Author
By age 5, Sasha Hibbs’ favorite movie was Gone With the Wind. By age 12, she completed her 7th grade book report on the sequel, Scarlett. By 18, she met and married her very own Mr. Rhett Butler and as it turns out, she never had to worry about going back to Tara to win the love of her life back. Fortunately, he stuck with her.

When not working her day job as a nurse, you can find Sasha dreaming of her next beach trip, reading the latest YA novel, and drinking more white chocolate mocha than she should.
