No one believed fourteen-year-old Jarrod Grant when he told them what happened to his family.  They said it was just a coping mechanism to deal with what he'd seen, but no matter how hard they tried to get the truth out of him, all he could talk about was the portal that had opened in his room, and the creature that had come through it to abduct his mother, and his little brother.

His story hit the local news, and he was thrown into a social system that only seemed to exist to make him feel like he was crazy.  Ultimately he was placed with a wonderful set of foster parents, but school was a different matter entirely.  He was treated like a freak, and turned into an outcast whose only comfort was a notebook, in which he obsessively drew page after page of what happened on that fateful night.

When he started his senior year of high school four years later, he expected it to just be more of the same.  He never dreamed that he'd meet two amazing girls named Tina and Sarah who actually wanted to hear his story.  Not only did they believe him, but they made it their mission to try to find him some answers.

Their search eventually leads them to a woman named Patricia Samuels, the caretaker and record keeper of a library full of lost information.  Her books, some dating back centuries, contain some of the answers they're looking for.  To get the rest of the story however, she'll have to fly out to Ohio to visit an old man who could hold the key to everything they've been looking for.

Origins is book 1 in the Unseen Things series. It's an introduction to the characters, as well as the overall theme of the series itself.

After her temper led her to walk out on yet another convenience store job, Cindy needed to find herself a new job fast, otherwise she'd end up broke and living on the streets.  After discussing the situation with her apartment manager, he informs her that he has a brother who's been looking to hire an assistant.  The only problem is that he's a private investigator, which was a career field that she had no experience in whatsoever.  Still, she was pretty much ready to jump at any opportunity.  It was a chance at not only quick employment, but possibly a whole new career that would get her out of the convenience store business once and for all.

As it turns out, being a private detective isn't as glamorous as they make it look on television.  It comes with certain indignities and moral issues that she'd never really considered before.  Not only that, but her new boss, Frank, seems to delight in going out of his way to piss her off.  The only thing he seems to enjoy more than pissing her off, is complaining about how horrible her coffee is.  Still, for some reason that she can't seem to figure out, he also goes out of his way to help her succeed in any way he possibly can.

Frank can be terribly passive aggressive, but he's nothing compared to his sister Kayla.  She's like a nightmare on wheels, with no empathy, and no filter whatsoever.  You never know what's going to come out of her mouth next, but it's a safe bet that it'll be something infuriating.  When your temper is already the stuff of legends, having to deal with someone like her, without the encounter ending in a murder rap, requires a tremendous amount of willpower.

The one thing that Cindy has going for her is that she's got a super high aptitude for the job.  All she needs to do in order to succeed is to learn how to control that legendary temper of hers, work hard, and most importantly, learn how to make a decent cup of coffee.  The first two are relatively simple.  The third...not so much.

When they volunteered to move to Scotland to start up a new operation there, they all had their own reasons for doing it. Some wanted to prove themselves, while others just wanted to make a fresh start. Whatever their personal reasons were for going, they all still had the same mission, which was to free the human slaves from the Faranox dimension, explore new dimensions and to make friends wherever they could.

When they made their first journey into one of the previously unexplored dimensions however, they encountered a very hostile race that they later come to call fangtails. Unfortunately, when they find themselves greatly outnumbered and forced to run for their lives, Jenny loses her amulet, which later ends up in the hands of the fangtail queen. When she accidentally opens a portal and ends up in the human dimension, it takes the entire team along with the help of one of her own kind to track her down.

Eager to prove themselves after the fiasco with the fangtails, Beth, Sheryl, Martin and Dylan all head out to find a Faranox village so they can free the human slaves and bring them back home. It was supposed to be a standard operation where they went into the village, killed the tribal leader and all of their Agaronin and then took the amulets and the slaves and headed back home. What they found when they got there however was something entirely different than anything they'd ever expected. They found themselves in what was called a free village, where slavery was outlawed and the humans who'd escaped from the slaver villages and made their way there were taken in, cared for and protected. Now, with the help of their tribal leader Thayelle, a plan is set into motion to eliminate slavery entirely from the five surrounding villages, so Thayelle and her people can live in peace and the human slaves can be brought back home.

Trackers is the 7th book in the Unseen Things series.
