Excerpt

Suddenly, there was a searing flash. Around us, power sparked and surged. Then, the car stopped, and all the lights went out.

Oh, no, I thought, not another power outage. Or maybe it was part of the ride? No. I had felt the power surge and break; I had felt it leap right...

...Into Danny.

Shock stilled my heart for a second.
