Genre: YA Fantasy
Release date: May 9, 2023
Secrets Come in Every Shade
After the introduction of Yellow magic in a society accustomed to only Red and Blue magic, the world inside the barrier has become more complicated than anyone imagined. Ava, Elm, and the former students of Prism navigate life in hiding. They face discord, secrets, betrayal, and danger that looms ever closer as the Benefactors narrow in on their hideaway.
Ava is determined to keep everyone protected, even at the cost of her own safety. She explores dangerous aspects of her new Mentalist abilities—against Elm’s dire warnings.
Tensions escalate when a new visitor arrives claiming to know a way out of the barrier. While this may be the only way to escape the Benefactors, what awaits them on the outside? Will they gain allies or make an entirely new set of enemies?

A great pick up where book one left off, Ava is still working to deal with yellow magic. We are seriously going from Vivid to Radiant and I can't wait to see what is next! All the characters are amazing and dear. It's hard to pick any that I don't root for. They are so real and so much fun! Super high amounts of suspense and tension push the story like an undercurrent while keeping me immersed in the characters and their lives and choices. For faith elements, there's a lot of unconditional love in here, love that is beyond what many think of day to day. Betrayal is always a deep cut, and this one hit hard for me. What a read! I can't get enough this series. I will probably have to have the hardcovers in my library.

More from Ashley
When I originally wrote Vivid, book one in The Color Theory series, I wasn’t sure if the story would continue. But it had to, didn’t it? Without spoiling anything, Vivid ends in a place where things are really just beginning, and that’s where Radiant takes the stage. What does coming together really look like? What does it take for a group of diverse people to unite? Radiant explores the strength that grows from working together and overcoming differences. It doesn’t come naturally to everyone, and our characters have a lot to learn. I hope you’ll enjoy Radiant!
