that fantasy and fiction create a safe space for young people to
explore the ins and outs of the world we live in and I aim to write
the kind of stuff that entertains as well as fosters
introspection.

Skies Book 1

Genre:
YA SciFi Adventure Romance

Jax
will do anything to save her twin . . . even team up with a teenage
alien left behind by the same ship that took her brother.

She
agrees to help the alien get back home, and in return, he agrees to
sneak her into the alien city to find her sibling.

Too
bad it’s not that simple.

Jax
soon finds that she’s drawn to the alien boy with bright green hair
and jewel-like scales on his back and he’s equally affected by her,
the courageous redhead with haunted eyes. But she doesn’t know the
alien’s true motives, and he has no idea that she is much more than
she seems.

Worse,
the connection forming between them has unknown consequences.

The
humans and the aliens are both hiding deadly secrets and the
forbidden bond linking the two teens threatens to reveal everything.
What started as an uneasy alliance and a seemingly straightforward
rescue mission could spark an inter-species war.

Broken Skies series is a completed series filled with action,
adventure, aliens, and romance. Perfect for fans of the Lux series,

Broken
Skies Book 2

Almost
everything she thought she knew is wrong…

A
trip to the city yields some much-needed answers, but Jax is once
again forced to leave Lir behind and return to Peter’s cabin where
enemies from her past await. But there are bigger things at stake
than revenge, and she finds herself traveling with some unexpected
companions toward a place she hoped to never see again.

After
being imprisoned on the orders of his uncle, Lir hasn’t seen
daylight or linked to anyone in weeks, and the pain and loneliness is
almost too much to bear. But Jax’s visit gives him renewed hope—and
the strength to continue fighting his uncle’s influence over the
E’rikon, even when things look hopeless.

While
Jax and Lir fight separate battles, their missions have more in
common than they realize. It’s a race against time to stop men
driven by greed and power. But the ones they trust the most might be
the very people working against them—and “family” doesn’t
mean what it used to. Will they recognize their friends from their
enemies in time to save the people they love…or will they lose each
other in the process?

Unexpected
allies. Unexpected betrayals. Unexpected abilities.

The
last thing Jax ever wanted was to be a weapon. Her abilities are
unpredictable at best, but there’s no one else with enough power to
take on Jastren and his mental manipulations. She doesn’t have to
do it alone, though. Not only can she rely on the unwavering support
of Lir, Rym, and her human friends, she also ends up with help from a
surprising source.

Meanwhile,
her twin brother Jace—his body controlled by Jastren, and the
shattered pieces of his mind locked inside—has become a monster.
The struggle to hold on to what’s left of his humanity has left him
weak and more confused than ever before. Every thought, every
impulse, and every memory has the potential to destroy him—and
everyone else around him.

The
futures of both the humans and the E’rikon are on the line, but as
ulterior motives and political machinations are revealed, it becomes
clear that the betrayals aren’t restricted to only one species. Can
Jax and Lir get everyone to work together in time to prevent the two
species from destroying each other? Can Jace find some measure of
redemption for all he has done? And will Jax be able to harness her
powers without losing herself?

There are side effects for the procedure; she now sees dragons

Monday, August 23rd, 2021

 

Dragons
Walk Among Us

 

The
Allison Lee Chronicles Book 1

 

by
Dan Rice

 

Genre:
YA Fantasy

 

 

At
times it’s hard to believe what you see.
 

 

Shutterbug
Allison Lee is trying to survive high school while suffering the
popular girl’s abuse. Her life is often abysmal, but at least her
green hair is savage. Her talent for photography is recognized by the
school paper and the judges of a photo contest.
 

 

While
visiting her friend Joe, a homeless vet, Allison’s life irrevocably
changes after an attack leaves her blind. All her dreams as a
photojournalist are dashed as she realizes she’ll never see again.
Despair sets in until she is offered an experimental procedure to
restore her vision. But there are side effects, or are they
hallucinations? She now sees dragons accompanying some of the people
she meets. Can she trust her eyes, or has the procedure affected her
more than she can see?
 

 

Debut author Rice offers an allegorical YA fantasy novel about the transformative power of self-love.

Savvy, coffee-loving teenager Allison Lee is strong beyond her years. The biracial girl faces open discrimination and also copes with her apparent abandonment by her mother, who disappeared several years ago. She’s developed a keen sense of social justice along with a skill for photography. When a mysterious stalker hits her over the head, leaving her blind, she turns to an experimental eye-surgery procedure that forever changes her view of the world. Once, Allison saw her camera as her window to the truth; now, with her naked eye, she’s able to see mythological creatures that aren’t visible to other humans and that fight to protect their way of life. Allison’s ability results in her embarking on a dangerous adventure as she discovers her own highly unusual dragon-hunting legacy. She faces mortal peril as she protects humans and other creatures from a violent, otherworldly onslaught. Along the way, she also gets in touch with her own physical and emotional resilience. Although dragons play a central role in Rice’s work, the heart of the narrative is found in simple humanity and in a celebration of differences. Throughout, characters demonstrate emotional growth as they confront their limiting beliefs about others and embrace a sense of family. The story addresses serious, socially relevant subject matter, such as discrimination, poverty, and bullying, but it’s never preachy; indeed, it has a lighthearted tone that will resonate with adolescent readers. It concludes on an affirming, heartfelt note that will leave readers thoroughly satisfied yet also curious about the future of Rice’s magical fictional world.

An inspirational and socially relevant fantasy.”

hiding in the woods, something else finds her. Something ancient and
powerful has sent out feelers, hoping to catch a human alone. For its
purposes, even a delinquent teen will do.
 

 

If
Spooky wants to survive to see any kind of future, she will have to
figure out how to gain leverage over a god. And as if the one wasn’t
bad enough, a pantheon of dark entities are lining up between her and
the life she’s always wanted…

In
the bowels of an unassuming, ever-moving funerary parlor, a mortician
known as the Operator hides a fearsome machine called the Godwin,
rumored to have the ability to resurrect the dead. It runs, like a
soul does, on logos: on words. And in exchange for those words—for
a client’s life story—the corpse of their choosing might yet walk
again. Careful, though. Words bear weight, so one must choose them
wisely. Author M. Regan delivers a harrowing and beautiful glimpse
into a world filled with desire, darkness, love, and loss.

Accidentally, evil is released from the portal as demonic parasites
spread throughout the school. One by one they turn her classmates
into an army of sleepwalkers, serving the Lord of Darkness in a
sinister plot for universal domination.

 

When
Jo is activated by the Council of Light, she discovers her mission
and confronts her celestial identity, revealing the mystery of

decode the artificial system in time to save her friends and the
sacred Light?

His instructions were more than to just befriend her…he was supposed to make her fall in love with him

Sunday, August 8th, 2021

 

The
Heartstone

 

Smoke
and Mirrors Book 2

 

by
Helene Opocensky

 

Genre:
Middle Grade, YA Fantasy

 

 

Corbin,
a powerful shapeshifting young mage, is just beginning to learn to
flex and harness his magical powers. When he hears that a young
witch, who doesn’t know that her strangeness is due to magic, has
run away for fear of being institutionalized for a second time, he
knows that he has to help his friends find her so that she can learn
to celebrate what makes her different rather than fear it.
 

 

What
he doesn’t know is that finding her will snowball him into a
position where he again feels obligated to his scheming former
mentor, Max Grobian. Nor does he know that Max will, once more, try
to manipulate him into betraying her daughter Lorelei, a girl Corbin
feels heart-bound to, yet fears to fully love.

The
Trueheart

 

Smoke
and Mirrors Book 1

 

 

How
could Corbin possibly do what he was supposed to do?

 

After
Corbin’s mother died, Maxim Moritz Grobian took him, penniless
orphan that he was, under his wing and taught him the magic that was
their heritage. Corbin owed Max everything, and now Max had given him
a mission. Corbin was to bring Max’s estranged daughter to New York.
Lorelei was the only one, Max insisted, that could use the
Heartstone, a crystal of phenomenal power, to keep mages safe from
the Inquisitors that hunted them and allow mages to finally take
their rightful place in the world.

 

A
worthy goal, thought Corbin initially, but now that he had actually
met Lorelei all he really wanted to do was to run for the hills. Both
afraid of hurting her and endangering himself, he needed to stay away
from her, not befriend her to do Max’s bidding. Besides, his
instructions were more than to just befriend her. He was supposed to
make her fall in love with him.

 

There
was no way, absolutely no way he was going to do that – not after
what she had told him.

Two

Magic
isn’t uncommon in the Deravine Commonwealth, where people can be
gifted with the faculties of combat, healing, transformation, or
sight. Yet as a hybrid mage, Aaron Ztrong’s abilities aren’t so
easily categorized. He managed to save his parents during a dangerous
confrontation when he was only a young boy, and now a decade later
most people in his life expect him to do remarkable things with his
powers. Then there are those who fear what Aaron and others like him
can do. When Aaron’s life is threatened by a group calling
themselves the Defenders, he takes refuge with two other hybrid mages
and the teacher who is training them to enhance their abilities. As
the Defenders continue to hunt down hybrid mages, Aaron and his new
companions must find a way to survive.

He knows me as Stella, my fun, carefree alter ego—so drastically different from Destelle, the girl who is trapped in the life her parents rule

Kinds of Us

 

Love
in Fenton County Book 5

 

by
Sarah Sutton

 

Genre:
YA Romance

 

 

DIAMONDS
MEET ROCK ‘N ROLL AND SECRETS MEET THEIR END.
 

 

In a life of
diamond bracelets and country clubs, I’m the perfect daughter. I
get all the right grades, volunteer at all the right organizations,
apply to all the right colleges.

 

And I hate every second of
it. At the rate my life is playing out, under the strict rule of my
parents, politicians and housewives will be my future.

 

Until I
meet Harry.

 

Harry’s a singer in a rock band with a voice so
beautiful that I actually feel hypnotized. Doesn’t hurt that he’s
hot either, and with the kind, flirty personality to match, it’s
the perfect trifecta. And even better, he sees the me I want to be.
He sees me as the girl who can break free of the life she’s trapped
in, who can control her own future.

 

The only problem? He knows
me as Stella, my fun, carefree alter ego—so drastically different
from Destelle, the girl who is trapped in the life her parents
rule.

 

But as we get closer, I realize Harry’s keeping a
secret of his own, something related to the dark past that he’s
trying to move on from, and when I find out, everything we’ve built
could come crashing down.
