No longer will her loved ones be hunted - Deviate (The Light Key Trilogy #2) by Tracy Clark

From Goodreads: "Wow! This book was shocking, gripping and pain filled. My heart broke for them, literally!Deviate is in dual POV's. I loved getting to see both point of views. It was empowering, gripping and made your heart ache. [...] Secrets, lies, omissions, shocking events, pains, love, friendships, family..... all are found inside. You will literally be sucked to the pages until you finish the book. "


Release Date: March 3rd, 2015

Tormented after a daring escape, Cora Sandoval must find a way to stop the Arrazi from murdering innocent people and from violating, using, and killing the Scintilla for their powers. She must also accept one bitter betrayal: Finn Doyle—the Irish boy who has both a piece of Cora's heart and soul—is Arrazi...

On the verge of extinction and sought by those who would either consume or destroy them, Cora and the remaining Scintilla survivors must solve the mystery of The Light Key. If they fail, the truth will stay buried forever and mankind will pay the ultimate price.

No longer will she hide.
No longer will her loved ones be hunted.
And she will have her vengeance...even if she shatters her heart in the process.


1) In SCINTILLATE, the story is all from Cora’s pov. It’s really her story. But as the trilogy unfolds, the pov’s expand. There’s always more than one side to the story. In DEVIATE, I incorporated the pov of an Arrazi—the enemy of the Scintilla—who just happens to be Cora’s first love, Finn Doyle. 

2) The whole story is set in Ireland! Cora fled to Ireland in the second half of book one. Now, she’s trapped there and searching for answers with enemies all around her.

3) Real life mysteries were used! People might be surprised to know that DEVIATE and the last book, ILLUMINATE, incorporate real-life mysteries, clues, and thefts. I’ll give you clues: Stolen hand, stolen wooden heart, Paradiso, Dante’s ashes, and more!

4) A character dies in DEVIATE whom I never had an intention of killing off. It’s one of those things that can happen in writing; the story or characters do unexpected things.

5) Your favorite best friends are back! Yes… I had to make sure Mari & Dun were there. I think people will be mad at me if I didn’t! Truth is, I love writing them. If you’re interested in reading a bonus scene of their first kiss, go to my website.

About the author:
Tracy Clark is a young-adult writer because she believes teens deserve to know how much they matter and that regardless of what they’re going through, they aren’t alone. In other words, she writes books for her teen self.

She grew up a “Valley Girl” in Southern California but now lives in her home state of Nevada, in a small town at the base of the Sierra Foothills. Her two children teach her the art of distraction and are a continuous source of great dialogue. She’s an unapologetic dog person who is currently owned by a cat.

Tracy was the recipient of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Work in Progress Grant. A two-time participant in the prestigious Nevada SCBWI Mentor Program where she was lucky enough to be mentored by bestselling author, Ellen Hopkins, who taught her so much about the art of writing and cured her of her ellipsis addiction.
Her debut novel was inspired by her enchantment with metaphysics as a teen, seeing it as the real magic in life. Tracy is a part-time college student, a private pilot, and an irredeemable dreamer.
