About The Book  

 Stitch by Samantha Durante

Series: Stitch Trilogy #1
Date Published: August 1, 2012
Pages: 314 (Paperback)
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Dystopian Sci-Fi



Her heart races, her muscles coil, and every impulse in Alessa's body screams at her to run... but yet she's powerless to move.

Still struggling to find her footing after the sudden death of her parents, the last thing college freshman Alessa has the strength to deal with is the inexplicable visceral pull drawing her to a handsome ghostly presence. In between grappling with exams and sorority soirees - and disturbing recurring dreams of being captive in a futuristic prison hell - Alessa is determined to unravel the mystery of the apparition who leaves her breathless. But the terrifying secret she uncovers will find her groping desperately through her nightmares for answers.

Because what Alessa hasn't figured out yet is that she's not really a student, the object of her obsession is no ghost, and her sneaking suspicions that something sinister is lurking behind the walls of her university's idyllic campus are only just scratching the surface...

The opening installment in a twist-laden trilogy, Stitch spans the genres of paranorma
l romance and dystopian sci-fi to explore the challenges of a society in transition, where morality, vision, and pragmatism collide leaving the average citizen to suffer the results.


Alessa could see the flash of doubt in his eyes, but only for a moment before he set his jaw.  “Listen, he needs to learn sometime.  I can’t hold him off anymore – he wants a part in this, and I can’t protect him forever.”
Alessa’s head thrummed with apprehension – she had a very bad feeling about this – but she knew she couldn’t change his mind.  She stepped forward and grabbed hold of his shovel, locking her eyes with his.  “Just be careful.”
He smiled brightly, suddenly cocksure.  “You know I’ve got this.  Don’t even worry about it.”
His grin was meant to be reassuring, but Alessa knew better.  If there was one thing she’d learned here, it was that nothing was ever as it seemed – and there were no sure bets.
“Be careful,” she reiterated, the undercurrent of fear sharpening her voice.
“I’ll see you tonight,” he replied, intrepid as ever.  “Bring your appetite.”
