Caleo social outcast or savior? Caleo is book one of the Leech series by James Crawford.
Caleo with his pale blue skin, piercing blue eyes, and snow white skin , never fit in with any of the high school clicks. Not to mention his parents died when he was little under abnormal circumstances and he now lives with his grandmother , and twin teenage boarders Jack and Jillian, that are as close to Caleo as a brother and sister could ever be.
But high school and his struggles with his sexuality are the least of his worries at the moment, as strangers show up in town and threaten not only Caleo but also all he holds dear, the family he has left. This is when Caleo learns of his special gift and the people out there called the leechers. The leechers want to hurt him and take Caleo's gift and will stop at nothing to achieve their goal, even if it means hurting Caleo's family to get to Caleo.
But there are also a faction of gifted leechers that have been sworn to protect Caleo as they see him as their savior and someone to lead them out of this dark and war torn time. They believe Caleo is going to be the most powerful leecher of all, but Caleo just doesn't see how, he thinks his gift is a dud, but their are secrets to be revealed. Will Caleo turn out to be the savior his friends hope he is and stop the world from crumbling around him? Can this rag tag team of misfits really keep Caleo safe so he can find his true self? Or will the leechers get Caleo first?
I loved this book and could not put it down, I can not wait until I have time to read book two of the series, Jack that is out now on Amazon.
