If you are a fan of origin stories, you may want to look into the Colorworld series. The books follow Wendy Whitley, a young woman who has taken the mantle of caregiver to her younger brother Ezra, while also dealing with financial troubles. Wendy signs up to be a paid participant in a study claiming to study the effects that energy therapy has in healing allergies. After a session Wen comes out with an ability to extinguish the life energy of others with a touch. While trying to undo this new ability, Wendy discovers that she can visualize the life force of people around her in vivid detail.
These are books that I really enjoyed reading. I loved the writing style of Rachel E. Kelly. These books will keep you on your toes and leave you wanting more. Like my other reviews, I don’t want to spoil anything. So, if you are looking for a fresh look to the origin story, give the Colorworld series a look. The Colorworld series is compiled of Colorworld, Teleworld, and Lumaworld (with more to come). You can find these books on the Colorworld website, Amazon, or do one better and see if Rachel E Kelly will be at a convention near you.
