Five dying islands. Each doomed to destruction. Only one hope to save them.
Katie Edwards only wants one thing-gorgeous and popular Jake Bronson. Summoning her courage, she is soundly rejected when she asks him to the Sadie Hawkin’s dance. Humiliated and heartbroken, Katie goes to bed that night knowing she no longer wants to remain the same- unmotivated and naïve. She must make a change. The night of this revelation, she falls asleep in her bedroom, but wakes up in an island paradise that is very, very far from Earth.
- After surviving several near-death experiences in the tropical jungle, she awakens again in her bed, as if Viridian were only a dream.
Or was it real? Her misadventures steel her resolve to improve, especially when she senses something lurking in the shadows, watching her every move. Katie pushes herself to run, lift weights, and learn to fight. That way, when her Viridian dream life takes her to a place far from home and full of danger, she is strong enough to stand up against her enemies.
- Viridian, the pristine Emerald Island on Caelestis offers Katie both true friendship and a centuries-old mystery to solve.
The citizens trapped on a dying island only have one hope: find the Inventor, the only man who has the answers to saving the island. But he disappeared, right on the cusp of the world’s demise. Five islands exist, and one-by-one, three have been destroyed by an unknown force. Now it’s up to Katie to solve the Inventor’s mysteries of the Stones and find a way to save the Emerald Island.
- An epic new YA adventure series with a touch of romance and a ton of danger.
Katie Edwards is a protagonist readers can relate to, cry with, and cheer for. In the spirit of Clary Fray of “The Mortal Instruments,” she takes charge of her uprooted life, and faces deadly forces with courage and headstrong determination. Katie is smart and resourceful, training herself to become a cunning fighter similar to Jude Duarte from “The Folk of the Air” Series. In defending Caelestis from evil, Katie’s emerging Gift becomes a vital tool, much like Vasya Petrovna in the popular “Winternight” trilogy.
