The Eighth Day

by Dianne K. Salerni
Release date: April 17, 2014
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult

A riveting fantasy adventure, rooted in Arthurian legend but set in the present, where a secret Eighth Day exists

The day after his thirteenth birthday, Jax Aubrey wakes up to a world without any people. At least that’s what he thinks — until life goes back to normal the next day. What’s going on? Then his eighteen-year-old guardian, Riley Pendare, explains that what he experienced is really the Eighth Day — an extra day sandwiched between Wednesday and Thursday. Some people — like Jax and Riley — are Transitioners, able to live in all eight days, while others, including Evangeline, the elusive teenage girl who’s been hiding out in the house next door, exist only on this special day.

At first, having a secret extra day seems pretty awesome to Jax. But he soon learns about a group of people who wish to use the Eighth Day in order to destroy the normal seven-day world. And they’re after Evangeline — she is the key to their sinister plan. As Jax tries to protect his new friend, he’s faced with an impossible choice: trigger an apocalypse or sacrifice Evangeline.

The first book in an exciting new tween trilogy, The Eighth Day is the perfect mix of magic and suspense that fans of Percy Jackson will devour.
