XODUS: The Astralis Series, Book 1 by K.J. McPike chosen as Medalist Winner in the Action / Adventure category of the 2016 New Apple Summer E-Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.

Book Synopsis
All Lali Yavari wanted for her sixteenth birthday was for her mom to come back. Instead, she starts flashing between realities and seeing people disappear before her very eyes. Then the unsettling Kai Awana shows up at school, and Lali soon discovers she has inherited the ability to astral project—with a surprising twist. When Kai offers to use his own unique ability to help Lali find her mother in exchange for her help on a misguided mission, she can't refuse...even if she's not quite sure she can trust him.
Don't miss this award-winning urban fantasy adventure, where what one girl learns about her mother's past will make her question everything she thought was true—and just might put her family in even more danger.

About the Author
K.J. McPike is the award-winning author of the Astralis series. After spending most of her childhood in rural Virginia, she caught the travel bug and has since lived in places like Spain and Thailand. Her travels have also taken her to Argentina, Turkey, Italy, Portugal, England, Ireland, and Mexico, and she is actively adding more to the list. No matter where she is around the globe, she is likely consuming too much caffeine and spending more time in coffee shops than her own apartment.
