"Young Miss Dunn wasn’t known for her academic record. “If Alex put as much effort into schoolwork as she did daydreaming, she’d be a straight-A student,” read one report. Everyone guessed Alex would grow up to be a writer, but travel became her career of choice, and she spent many years living the corporate high life in various exotic locations. Until the night she had a dream she simply couldn’t forget. An abandoned castle, a plutonium candle and fearsome demons that would end the world if she didn't extinguish the eerie white flame before midnight. Alex’s stories had been simmering inside her for years, and they were starting to burst out. So, she put her pen to paper.
Since that fateful evening Alex Dunn has become known for her edgy YA fantasy novels and a loyal readership awaits her up and coming series, Alchemyne: The Blackest Phase, which follows Captain Franklin Tennant, a fifteenth generation warrior who must defeat an army of undead, led by a vengeful spirit."

Donnie Darko meets Pleasantville in this dark urban fantasy about sixteen-year-old Ben Howard. When Ben accidently kills his father and is sectioned after a failed suicide attempt, he escapes the guilt by seeking solace deep within the recesses of his own mind.
Waking in a strange ethereal black and white world, where most people exist as living statues, Ben leaps from New York skyscrapers into African jungles without fear of injury, severed from his emotions, until he meets and falls in love with Alice. But, no sooner does he settle into this strange, new existence, he’s traumatically catapulted back to the brutal reality he left behind.
Nobody believes he’s spent the last six months in a Gray World. Not his neurotic mother, his policeman brother Gavin, or his friends Mitch and Wendy, and certainly not Dr. McKenzie who’s threatening to give him even more pills. They all think he’s crazy, and why wouldn’t they when he’s been in some strange coma locked up in a mental asylum? (taken from Alex Dunn's website)
