More About This Title Black Five


No one ever accused Penelope Jackson of being normal, nor did they suspect the dark secret she keeps. A dangerous web of deceit and secrecy unravels when news of a stranger's death put Penn on a collision course with the very person she's been hidden from her entire life. Her fragile world is shaken to its core with the sudden arrival of Vacavious's Morterros, and she soon discovers the bizarre and magical world surrounding her seemingly ordinary life.  No one is who they claim to be, including those closest to Penn. A mysterious security detail emerges from the shadows, scrambling to protect her as powerful forces await the fall of her protective veil on her eighteenth birthday. Penn prepares to fight against unseen villains before it's too late. The world of Nighmerianotte and its population depends on her survival, for she is the Sanguine, the Black Five.
