Hybrid is a paranormal thriller/romance for teens.
Emily moves from Dallas, Texas to Beckley, West Virginia, in an attempt to put the painful memory of her youngest sister's mysterious death to rest. Upon arriving, she meets a handsome and well liked teen named Maxwell Snow, and the two quickly begin dating. Not long after, Emily, or Dallas as the kids at Woodrow Wilson High call her, starts having bloody dreams with her dead sister Rose as the luminary. Frightened, she worries she might be losing her mind--again--and tells Max about the disturbing visions. He is sympathetic, trying to help her figure out what is going on. And then a stranger starts school. Julian Knight, a half-human, half-vampire teen shows up and everything changes for Emily. Everything...
I shook my head trying desperately to wake from my fog. The spinning room was blurry and my head felt hazy. An image of Rose in her funeral garb was etched into my brain. Her tiny face haunted my confused thoughts. What was Rose doing in my dream, and what was she trying to tell me? The clock read three a.m.--just like the night before. Hmm, the witching hour I thought. I remembered that from a horror movie Madison and I watched together late one night in her bedroom. An unsuspecting teen met her demise at precisely three a.m.--the time witches and demons haunt their victims. Was Rose haunting me? Seriously freaked out, and too afraid to sleep by myself, I took Mom's prior advice and headed towards the twin's crowded room. I tugged on the lower portion of Ashley's trundle bed until it opened. I dove into to the icy, pink satin sheets praying for sleep.
