Ages ago, the world was sundered into Five Lands when the Prism of Power was shattered. The people of each Land lost an attribute: sight, speech, balance, courage, and order.
When the Mage uncovered a shard of the Prism, he used its magic to create his own land, a dark and twisted place straight out of a nightmare. But that wasn't enough for him; he lusts for the power to rule the other Lands. His first move is to kidnap and hold the queen of the Land of the Folk hostage until her people surrender.
The Folk are cursed, and do not have the courage to stand against the Mage. The Seven Sages send out a call for help. Only someone from the Mage's home Land can hope to combat him.
Twelve-year-old Leif is the only one who answers the call, but he doesn't know what he's signed up for: the Mage holds a secret that could spell his death...
A Sorcerous Spell
The Mage is weakened, but still has some dark magic, as well as armies of goblins. If Leif is stop him for good, he must find the Five Shards of Power.
The first stop is the Land of the Giants, whose people have lost the power of speech. One of the giants, Mungus, manages to overcome his disability and point Leif in the direction of the Shard. The only problem is, it's being guarded by a fire-breathing dragon...
...and the dragon is not the worst thing Leif must face as he and his friends travel the Five True Lands on their quest. There are forces at play more ominous than the Mage; they are pulling Leif down a darkened path.
A Monstrous Myth
Before Leif can get the final Shard and stop the Mage, he must make a choice that will cost one of his friends their life.
As he struggles with this decision, Leif realizes that stopping the Mage could come at a much greater cost. It could mean the end of the Five True Lands.
It's only after Leif uncovers a centuries-old secret that he finally comes face-to-face with the true power that has been behind everything since the Sundering of the Prism of Power.
One night, I was attacked in my home. The fire ... it raged out of control. I survived the inferno, but my house burned to the ground - with my parents inside. I was at a loss to explain to the courts what happened, and they sent me to prison for ten years for manslaughter.
Now I'm out on parole, and all I want is to return to my home town and rebuild my life; but the man who attacked me is back to finish the job he started. I can sense the power in me growing. If I can't control it, it will control me and destroy everything - and everyone - I love.

The Complete Book of Fallen Angels
There is no trace of their young son, Alex Manez, or of the asteroid itself.
On the outer edge of the solar system, the first manned mission to Pluto, led by the youngest female astronaut in NASA history, has led to an historic discovery: there is a marker left there by an alien race
for humankind to find.
We are not alone!
While studying the alien marker, it begins to react. Four hours later, the missing asteroid appears in a Plutonian orbit, along with young Alex Manez, who has developed some alarming side-effects from his
exposure to the kinetic element they call Kinemet.
From the depths of a criminal empire based on Luna, an expatriate seizes the opportunity to wrest control of outer space, and takes swift action.
The secret to faster-than-light speed is up for grabs, and the race for interstellar space begins!
