Book One – Awaken
While summering in a New England campground, mind reading thirteen-year-old twins, Meghan and Colin Jacoby, discover they have until the rising of the Blue Moon to help save the life of a young man, whose caravan is forced to flee through a magical portal to another world, without him.
In the process, they have a dark awakening when their own simple, normal world, begins to collide with the complexities of the magical world. The twins face unimaginable dangers, which thrusts them into an unexpected choice: to live as they always have or to learn the truth about their past and enter a world that is equally thrilling and terrifying.
More importantly, however, is whether they even have a choice, or will destiny not only force this new magical reality upon them, but require them to sacrifice everyone they love in doing so?
Book Two – Shifting
In one moment, everything changes for Meghan and Colin Jacoby. A light goes out, a doorway closes and a new life is thrust upon them. But even with this terrible blow, they discover they are not as alone as they first thought.
This terrible turn of events has brought them into the world of Grimble, an afterlife ghost town where the deceased from the world of magic wait after death, to finish any unfinished business. One ghost in particular takes a liking to the twins and says he’s been waiting for them! A first for Grimble, seeing as no ghost has ever had their unfinished business come to them before.
He claims to be a long lost relative who is there to assist the twins, and ease their transition into this new life. Unfortunately, soon after, a secret is revealed which pushes the magical community’s levels of acceptance and tolerance to its peak! In addition, an emerging fire prophet, known as a Firemancer, warns, “They attack you where you sleep!” The seer’s words are feared to mean that an ancient enemy is rising. Although many fear it is the newcomers themselves, Meghan and Colin Jacoby, that cannot be trusted.
To make matters worse, Colin find himself in trouble, the kind of trouble only his sister can get him out of… except there’s just one problem: if Meghan doesn’t succeed, not only might her brother die, but her failure will put the entire magical world into peril.
Book Three – Embrace
In the land of the Goblin King, magic is strictly forbidden! Nevertheless, this does not stop Colin Jacoby from using the Magicante as a smoke screen while he searches for his missing dream girl, Catrina Flummer.
At the same time, his mind reading twin sister, Meghan, is mortified to learn she will be working alongside the Svoda’s newest Initiate, Ivan Crane, on a quest for Juliska Blackwell. She knows their journey will be fraught with peril, but also feels confident that Ivan and Meghan will work well together, as Firemancer and Initiate… to retrieve something the Goblin King has stolen. Moreover, if this stolen item is not recovered, the magical world will once again be on the verge of doom.
Through extenuating circumstances, Colin, Meghan and Ivan, along with a few more unexpected guests, journey into the magical realm of the Goblins only to make a forced retreat, with the entire Goblin army following in their wake!
Can they make it back in time to sound the warning? Will they be able to dethrone the Goblin King?
A new magical power just might make it possible for one of the twins. But will this new power also be their undoing? Leading them down a dark path where the only outcome is death!
Book Four – Broken
After fleeing from the Goblin King, the Svoda step through a new magical portal only to make a gruesome discovery: A devastated habitat, still smoldering, belongings strewn and ruined… but where are all the people?
An investigation ensues to locate the missing persons. However, it is plagued by dead ends, unexplained and dangerous occurrences, as well as unwelcome guests from the Svoda’s magical past. Treasure hunters, called Stripers, who reveal a potentially fatal plot that affects everyone in the magical world.
Colin Jacoby continues his quest as protector of the girl, Catrina Flummer, while Meghan discovers that this girl may be the key to ending this danger the Striper’s warn them about. She makes a decision that will change the relationship with her brother, forever, and finds out that sometimes, playing with fire is the only way to save lives.
Book Five – Divided
When the truths you have believed all your life turn out to be lies… When you are betrayed by the very people that have sworn to protect you… When you discover your life is no longer your own…
What would you sacrifice to take back what belongs to you?
Your friends? Your family?
Would you be willing to sacrifice your own life?
To some, the importance of truth is more important than life itself.
Book Six – Taken
“Three children born of an immortal bloodline will wage a battle to control magic. Once the battle is won, peace and balance may return to a world long torn apart.
But only one can win this battle… only one can be victorious.”
A prophecy some have interpreted as serendipitous to their cause… a prophecy some are willing to exploit to its fullest, even to the detriment of all.
A prophecy three immortal children have no choice but to accept, as whether by fate or circumstance, the battle has already begun.
Book Seven – Control
A prophecy made long ago, claiming that three immortal offspring will bring balance to the world of magic.
But no one can tell them how… is fate bringing them closer to fulfilling their destiny, taking them each on a predetermined journey that will end with just one winner? Or is each step they have taken so far, just a move in someone else’s game?
Book Eight – Forsaken
Jae Mochrie is Juliska Blackwell’s prisoner. She’s tasked him with a simple request… one he refuses to give in to. The price for his defiance is exactly what he expects. But he sees an out… a possible solution, at least a temporary solution. One that might give him more time. Unfortunately, it does not go as planned and Juliska’s reaction is not what he expects, at all.
It sends her into a fury. And then to top it all off, she sees a ghost… one from her past. A face she never wanted to see again. These events set off a chain reaction, leading to Juliska’s first real vision in years.
Just how did Juliska Blackwell go from lost girl found, and raised by the Svoda, to a Firemancer, to being their Queen? You might think you know her motivation… there’s been a few hints along the way.
What happened when she was kidnapped by Jurekai Fazendiin? The first made and most powerful of the Immortal Grosvenor.
What really happened on what should have been the happiest day of her life? Her wedding day…
And who exactly is “Uncle Eddy” otherwise known as Colin Edward Gillivray, and why did he take his own life? Forcing him to straddle the world of the living and the world of the dead, for all eternity.
Before we can go forward, we must first go back.
This is one of my favourite indie-book series.
I am not a teenager or young adult, but I have thoroughly enjoyed this fantasy series and truly believe it’s an enjoyable read for any age. It trots along at a good pace, with plenty of developments for the main protagonists and introducing more unique characters as the story continues. The plot is intriguing, keeps you on your toes and definitely gets your imagination going. The conclusion of each book left me wanting… no needing… more.
I have read books 1-7,so far, but fully intend to read the read of the series. Book 8 was released in May this year, and there are, as far as I can tell, a further 2 books to follow. The books are now available in box sets at some stores.
