Sixteen-year-old Marci Guerrero is one of the best teen hackers in Seattle. However, she’d give up all her talents to know she isn’t crazy.
Marci feels possessed by what she perceives as shadowy spectres that take control of her body and make her do crazy things. While spying on the clandestine group known as IgNiTe, she’s confronted by the leader, James McCray. His presence stirs the spectres inside her brain into a maddening frenzy. Her symptoms and ability to control them don’t go unnoticed by James, who soon recruits her and shows her the awful truth.
Half of the world’s population is infected by sentient parasites. They bind themselves to the human brain and replace the pathways for all thoughts and actions. The creatures then morph their hosts into grotesque monsters with extraordinary strengths. Winged, clawed, fanged half-humans become living nightmares. Now Marci wishes she was crazy, because the truth is worse.
She’s infected.

I asked Ingird, 'Why teen hackers? Are you a secret hacker?'
If I tell you the truth, I would have to hack your blog. Just kidding ;)
Nope, I’m not a hacker. I’m too much of a straight-up citizen to ever manage being a hacker. I’m not as brave as my protagonist, Marci, either. She’s a very courageous girl with an insanely high IQ, so she can get away with it. I’d probably get caught the very next day O.o
The truth, though, is that I had always wanted to write a book with hackers and computers in it. They say you should write what you know and, although, I’m not a hacker, I do work as a programmer and have some knowledge of computers. I figured it would be fun to have those elements in one of my books, and I wasn’t wrong. Writing Ignite The Shadows was a blast.
We live in a super high-tech society and hear about security breaches caused by hackers all the time. But maybe hackers don’t have to always be bad. Marci isn’t, and she’s, instead, fighting for the world and the survival of humankind.
IgNiTe and FiGhT!
