Stoneheart and the Axe

The Horizon Cycle

Book 2

What happens on the Island... Stays on the Island.


 Horizon Island is a sleepy, little fishing community off the coast of Maine. In the summer, tourists flock to its picturesque wharf and explore its beautiful hiking trails. In the winter, the locals board up their shops and fight shape-shifting monsters.


Of course, this isn't in the brochures. 


They are Clan, a magical warrior race. And they are the only ones keeping the mysterious and murderous Terrors from overrunning the world. 


Nicia Silverthread doesn’t live on the Island, but she knows the truth about the Clan. She’s the daughter of an outcast. Although she has magic within her, she’s no warrior.


But when she learns her grandma is dying, Nicia is determined to see her one last time.


Sneaking back onto the Island is easy, but to leave...? 


All she has to do is break a few magically bound contracts, destroy a Terror unlike any other, catch a murderer before they strike again, find a flower on a mountain not-quite-of-this-world, and stop herself from falling for a fiance she never wanted in the first place. 

Definitely not in the brochure.

After darkness consumes Krissa, is there any hope for salvation?

When Krissa disappears to join the Amaranthine, Fox knows he has to save her. But the magical world beyond Clearwater is more dangerous than he can imagine, and even with Sasha’s help, locating Krissa can have deadly consequences.

With time running out before the Amaranthine achieve eternal life and become invulnerable, Fox and Sasha must team up with a menacing group with a fearsome reputation if they hope to find their friend.

But locating Krissa isn’t enough. If they can’t remove the darkness from within her the Amaranthine will unleash an immortal assassin on the world. Killing Krissa may be the only alternative, but is that a line Fox is willing to cross?

 THE CREATURA SERIES IS THE DANTE ROSETTI FIRST PLACE WINNER, two years running, and a 2016 READERS' FAVORITE HONORABLE MENTION in the Young Adult-Fantasy category.  Fruit of Misfortune is the second installment in this fabulous young adult series

Isis' goals for the future included things like attending and graduating college. However, becoming a monster wasn't part of the plan. Isis and her boyfriend, David, are on the brink of a horrible transformation and they are eager to stop it. Together, they set out on a quest to Greece to find Isis' biological father--the only person that may be able to help them. Their journey comes to an abrupt stop before it even begins when Isis falls ill, and Eros, David's best friend, arrives in Athens, unannounced and curious...with a plan of his own. 

The hunt for her father leads Isis on the turbulent path of deceit, death, and demons as she anticipates the dawning of the beast that stirs inside her.

Continue the Creatura journey with Isis and cast of charismatic personalities in Marker of Hope (Creatura, #3) and/or Prelude (a stand alone prequel novella).
