After her twin brother, Kain’s disagreement with their father, Varin Torvik, they’re shipped them off to the Tompkin’s School boarding academy located in the middle of the Arbuckle Mountains to complete their high school education.

The heat rushed to my hands, spiraling into fireballs.
Choyce grabbed my arm. “Izzy, cut it out. Someone will see you.”
I gritted my teeth, but complied, clasping my hands closed.Tompkin’s School: For The Resurrected

A supernatural world of adventure awaits.
Izara was born to Varin and Lenora Torvik who were both alumni of the academy’s nightwalkers, a secret organization formed by the Tompkin family to hunt those with supernatural abilities.
As Kain and Izara near their sixteenth birthday and start to show signs of aggression, their father ships them off to the school. Izara and Kain have no idea about the school’s ulterior motives, that they have powers, or that their parents even met at Tompkin’s School.
The twins share supernatural abilities inherited from birth due to a spell cast to prolong Credan’s life, an ancient shifter born to a forbidden union between a shifter of the light and a shifter of the dark. Credan cast this spell to ensure the demise of the Assembly’s rule over the Transitioned World. These powers are connected to Credan and allow the twins to be influenced by him.
Each full moon, Izara transitions into a black-winged demon in the image of Credan with powers controlled by him to ensure his return. But she also inherits powers Credan did not foresee. Because of how her body reacted to the spell, she also inherited the Time Traveler gene, a species that once ruled over the Transitioned World that the Assembly overthrew and eradicated.
