Freak – Marie D. Jones
Release Date: June 24, 2014
After his mother is killed in a bizarre fire, Jason Rainier is taken in by his uncle and raised in the shadows of the famous Rainier Traveling Carnival. Shy and reclusive, Jason wears a dark leather mask to cover part of his face and hide scars left from that fateful night. Despite his differences, he is accepted among the carnies and treated like family. Jason has little exposure to the outside world, until Gina, a lovely young reporter, helps bring him out of his shell and reveals the enigmatic man behind the mask. But when word of his amazing abilities begins to go viral, everyone he loves will be put in danger from powerful forces. Forces that wish to destroy Jason … forces that know why he’s here … forces all too aware of who the freak really is.

She waited, and he emerged after a moment from the back room, but he lingered in the hallway, in the shadows. Gina looked at him, observing him as much as she could before he slipped away again, like some phantom or illusion. He wore black jeans and a black long-sleeved hoodie with some generic Harley Davidson design on it, and his hands were covered in black leather gloves. He was tall, maybe six feet or so, and lean, but the hoodie covered his hair and most of his face now. She could see that he was still wearing the mask, the creepy black leather mask that hid half of his face. She took a few steps toward him, hoping he would come into the light so she could see the rest of his face. She almost didn’t have to, because his eyes, those eyes, they pierced through the shadows and into her soul.
He wanted to go to her, hold her and tell her not to cry, that it was all going to be alright. But he couldn’t, because he knew it wasn’t, he could see in his mind that it wasn’t, and that for her own good, she needed to stay as far away from him and the Rainier Traveling Carnival as she possibly could. It was more than just a gut feeling, and one he wished he could get rid of because a part of Jason wanted Gina to come back to see him every day for the rest of his life.
