The climate crisis came with a side of monsters.

Too bad the one girl who could have stopped them is dead . . .


YA dystopian dark fantasy of dreams, choice, desire & the nightmares that feed on us.



Catastrophic environmental collapse awakened the ancient horrors of folklore & myth. In the flooded ruins of what was once Vancouver, BC, the price of survival is unquestioning obedience to Tower rule. Survivors must surrender every hope, dream, and desire--all that makes them human--or risk being abandoned to the nightmarish Mara.


But when a dangerously distracting stranger intrudes on her boring-but-safe life and the nightmare-devoured dead invade her waking dreams, one haunted 17-year-old outcast has no choice but to defy everything she's ever known to do the one thing she could never have imagined:


Stand up and fight.



A not-quite-alive girl and her not-quite-dead ghost discover trusted authorities lie, allies have their own agendas and even the monsters wear masks in a journey of betrayal, revenge, and finding the power to fight back.


This atmospheric and twisty YA fantasy blends post-apocalyptic climate fiction with the gothic horror and paranormal grandeur of Edgar Allen Poe's The Mask of the Red Death for fans of Brenna Yovanoff, Laini Taylor, and Holly Black.

THE EARTH GIVES WAY TO THE SEA,

THE WIND FEEDS THE FLAME, 

THE FLAME BURNS THE WORLD OF MAN DOWN TO THE EARTH.


Xander Sirocco now has the power of the Wind Elemental at his disposal, but it may be too little too late. 


The Fire Caste has begun its conquest of the planet, and many of the largest cities already burn. Xander, Sean, and Jessica know what needs to be done—they must find the Water and Earth Elementals to have any chance of defeating the Fire Elemental. The first to be located is the Water Elemental. With her power, they could at least slow the advance of the Fire Warriors. If she would only believe in their mission as much as they do… 


While Xander struggles to convince the Water Elemental that their mission is just, Sammy fights an unexpected battle of her own. With her body now possessed by the Fire Elemental, she’s little more than an observer as it uses her to destroy Los Angeles. Sammy can still exert her will on occasion, but it’s exhausting. When the Elemental sends the deadly General Abraxas after Xander, she wonders if she’ll be able to influence her body’s actions enough to save the life of the man she loves.


Water Shaper is the third book in the World Aflame series by Jon Messenger. This series is complete and ready for binge reading.

The Earth Gives Way to the Sea,

The Sea Bows Before the Wind,

The Wind Feeds the Flame,

The Flame Burns the World of Man Down to the Earth.


White Halls is no longer a sleepy little town. Its houses lie smoldering on their foundations. The residents take refuge in their homes, afraid to leave. And the town’s prodigal son and newest Wind Warrior, Xander Sirocco, has fled.


Xander survived the first assault on his life by the Flame Caste, but it’s at a great personal cost. He and Sammy are left to bury his family and tend to his grandfather, who lies in a coma.


With the weight of the world on his shoulders, he can’t help but feel the fight against the Fire Caste is hopeless. It seems hopeless, that is, until he learns of a secret race of Elementals, embodiments of the elemental powers that the different castes wield. With the power of the Elementals comes a chance to save not just the Wind Warriors and Sammy, but the world itself.


Emboldened, he sets off to find the Wind Elemental and with it, the hope for his survival. Too bad no one has seen the Wind Elemental in generations and now thinks she’s just a myth. As he quickly learns, however, the Fire Elemental isn’t a myth. It’s real and it has a secret plan for his girlfriend.

And it won’t stop until Xander is dead.

Flame Caller is the second book in the World Aflame series by Jon Messenger. This series is complete and ready for binge reading.

 From best-selling author Shannon A. Thompson comes an exciting new duology in the Bad Bloods universe. Fourteen-year-old Violet has been called many things: a bad blood, a survivor, an immortal...now she has a new name--citizen. But adjusting to a lawful life is not easy, especially when she must live under the rule of the same officers who justified the killings of her flock only eight months earlier.Segregation of bad bloods and humans is still in effect, and rebellious Violet steps into a school where she is not allowed. When the police get involved, things deteriorate quickly, sparking a new revolution at the wall separating the Highlands from the outskirts.
That's when Caleb steps in. He might appear to be an average sixteen-year-old bad blood, but he has secrets, and Violet is determined to figure them out. Caleb knows who's attacking the wall and why, but his true identity remains a mystery--and how he relates to Violet could shake the threatened city to its very core.
Together or not, a storm will form, a rally will start, and shocking truths will be revealed.
