young adult fantasy
This award-winning, USA Today, & bestselling series takes readers into an immersive fantasy world, filled with action, adventure, & romance.
Shock of Fate: Book One
One ordinary teenager. One extraordinary mission. And a destiny she never expected.
Like every other Lodian teenager on Providence Island, fifteen-year-old Vanessa Cross is so ready to party her summer away—until her father disappears. And rumors fly that he’s a traitor.
Plucked from her ordinary life to journey to an alternate reality to retrieve a priceless relic, Van bends—okay, breaks—the rules to find her father and prove his innocence.
What she finds will test her courage and push her toward a destiny she neither expected nor wanted. Failure to rise to the challenge could destroy what’s left of her family. And the people she was born to protect..
Plague of Death: Book Two
A warrior with a destiny. A people to protect. A darkness that could swallow everything.
Sixteen-year-old Vanessa Cross’s destiny came at a terrible cost. Her father is dead. Her spirit guide talks in riddles. The love is beyond her reach. Heart hardened, Van trains to become a warrior and protector of her people.
Van and her team race to repair a cracked seal separating the Living and Earth worlds, but clawing at the barrier is no ordinary demonic horde. This force is darker, stronger, hungrier.
It falls squarely on Van—ready or not—to fulfill her mission. For her friends. For her people. And for all humanity.
Helm of Awe: Book Three
Deep in enemy territory, a sudden change of mission could seal their fate.
Van knows her life is somewhat charmed, rarely feeling the deep bite of injustice, but this is ridiculous. First, an off-islander steals what should have been an easy victory in the games. Her best friends are flirting, while she hasn’t heard from her crush, Balish crown prince Ferox, in ages.
And now she has to lead her team deep into enemy territory--Balish territory--while her powers are on the fritz.
Old enemies, a deadly virus, royal intrigues, cloaked assassins—and the sudden realization that someone has sent her there for an entirely different reason—threaten to send her life plan up in flames. If she fails, only the Creator knows if Van and her team will get out of this mess alive.
