Endless (King #4) by Tawdra Kandle
After the tumult of her high school senior year, all is right in Tasmyn Vaughan’s world. She’s attending college with her boyfriend, and she’s learning to control her powers. Everything is finally perfect, until it isn’t.
When her new part-time job leads to more than she bargained for, she is thrown into a deadly fight against forces of evil that she didn’t even know existed. Mastering her extraordinary gifts—along with the strength of an endless love—may be the only weapon that can guarantee her a happily ever after.

Nell’s room was nearly at the end of the corridor. I paused for just a beat to repeat my calming breath routine before going through the open door.
There was just one bed in the room, against the far wall. A few machines sat in the corner, but only one small monitor was connected. I saw the steady flicker of a small light, but happily the volume had been muted.
I hadn’t seen Nell in person since the day she’d tried to kill me. My last clear memory before I passed out was of Reverend Pryce holding her arms as she screamed and flailed. Of course, that didn’t count our more recent dream visits.
But it was still a shock to see her lying so very still. Her long hair still had the same beautiful dark sheen as it spread across the pillow. She had always had almost alabaster skin, but now it was nearly translucent. Her hands were loosely draped around her middle, one palm up, as though she had been asking for something when she fell asleep.
I moved cautiously closer to the bed, keeping my mind open and alert. Part of me was still afraid that Nell might suddenly leap from the bed and hold a knife to my throat, even while I remembered our last encounter, when she’d risked her own life to save mine from Marica.
But there was nothing from the bed, not anything like the darkness I’d come to expect from Nell’s mind, not even the static I picked up when someone was blocking me. There was only. . .blankness. Nothingness.
I reached out a tentative hand to touch her arm. Her skin was cool to the touch, and I braced myself for the inevitable onslaught of feelings I usually picked up from touching anyone. But again, there was only a blank slate. The monitor on the far of the bed didn’t register anything but the same rhythmic blinking.
