  • Ever since his mother died, 11-year-old Owen has felt lost. He's drifting apart from his dad, his grades are dropping, and the only thing keeping him sane are the soccer trials coming up. Then, in the middle of school one day, he is sucked out of real life and thrown into a desolate alternative world, a largely deserted wasteland where a menacing storm of Darkness plagues the city, threatening his life and the lives of the people who dwell there. Terrifying as this new world is, Owen recognizes it--his dad is an author, and this is the setting of his new novel. Fueled by his grief over the loss of his mom, Owen's dad has conjured a world so real and so fraught that Owen is transported to it every time his dad sets pen to paper. And he has to live out every word in the story. But each jump devours chunks of his real life. Owen misses days of school, and even a key soccer game that threatens his chances of having a shot at appearing in the tryouts at all. Owen desperately wants these events to stop, but doesn't want to plunge his dad any further into the well of unhappiness that threatens to drown them both. With social services threatening to ship Owen off to his aunt's house and his school career spiraling out of control, what if finishing the story and battling the Darkness is the only way Owen can save himself . . . and his dad?

  • I’m a Stormwalker—which means I can use the power of storms to work some wild and wicked magic. I’ve opened a hotel in a little town in the desert, where powerful vortexes house dangerous and evil beings that I need to make sure stay put. Stormalker When I’m attacked one night on the open road, an innocent bystander is killed—cousin of the local sheriff, who’s not too happy with me. I try to warn him of the continuing danger, but he’s curiously oblivious—for reasons I find out later. The attack also alerts my on-again, off-again boyfriend, Mick, the man I made myself walk away from years ago. Now he’s back, and I have to decide whether to give into my intense cravings for him or continue to fight alone. Firewalker My day bursts into chaos when a Changer charges into my hotel, attacking me with a message spell. I have to obey the message, whether I like it or not. But that’s okay, because it’s from Mick, my dragon boyfriend, guiding me to Death Valley where he’s been imprisoned by the Dragon Council. Rescuing him takes all my strength, not to mention the wild magics I inherited from my evil-goddess mom, plus Nash, the sheriff who’s impervious to magic. But once Mick is free, he tells me he’s bound to the Dragon Council to appear at a trial for breaking dragon law. He’s already been found guilty, and now they’ll sentence him, and maybe, just maybe, they’ll let him live. Forget that. I’ll do anything in my power to keep Mick safe from the sticks-up-their-dragon-tails Council, even if it means letting forth my goddess power, and challenging the likes of Coyote, all my new friends, and even Mick himself. Shadow Walker The world falls from beneath me—literally—one winter night when I’m racing down the road on my beloved motorcycle. I tumble into a huge sinkhole, followed by the sheriff, who’s doggedly chasing me. I find myself in a cavern covered with evil petroglyphs that are intent on killing me … From that harrowing situation I go to another even more dire: A hotel inspector who seems bent on putting me out of business. Add to this, my evil little sister has surfaced to tangle with me, and now Mick, my dragon boyfriend, is acting mysterious and scary. Only the magic mirror, my interfering grandmother, and my new cook seem to know what’s going on, all of them telling me that Mick has been touched by shadows.

It seems that every slayer around is after Ansel, who fears he killed the woman he loves in a Nightwalker frenzy. Things are made more complicated by the fact that Ansel and his girlfriend might have unearthed an artifact of incredible magic. Now I have to choose between protecting Ansel or facing the most powerful magical beings in the world, who are willing to destroy me, Mick, my hotel, and everyone I’ve ever cared about to get to Ansel and his secrets.

Next thing we know, my sister is trying to bring down criminals single-handedly, and weird creatures suddenly turn up at Barry’s biker bar. I wake up after I’m knocked out fighting the creatures ... but I seem to be in the past. It’s the time right after Mick, my dragon boyfriend, and I first met, and we’d traveled across country by motorcycle, free and falling in love. The dream seems so real that I begin to forget it isn’t. Dreams keep calling me back, each one more powerful than the last, until past and present run together. Is this some trick of Emmett’s to get his hands on the magic mirror? Dragon Bites: Maya and I are just trying to have a girls’ weekend in Vegas. Kick back, take in some shows … Then Gabrielle decides to tag along. Now there’s a dragon slayer after Mick, gladiatorial games from hell, and a Vegas hotel full of trapped demons.
