A SONG OF NEVERSEA
Adult contemporary fantasy for fans of Rachel Vincent, V.E. Schwab, and Scott Lynch, with the feel of Taylor Swift’s folklore.
Luma Grey feared the creature stalking the corners of her sight was a sign of madness—until the day he sang.
For years, the eerie figure that only Luma sees has surfaced at the worst possible moments, sabotaging her attempts at securing the approval she’s always chased. But when the creature sings for the first time, making her look unhinged before both her professional and romantic interests, Luma seeks answers outside of her head to be rid of him at last. Her investigation takes her from Cornwall to Eidolia, a realm of living myths far removed from humanity’s scribblings. And while the wall between realms has been sealed for decades, Luma alone manages to cross it.
Penetrating the wall lands Luma in a fight for her freedom, as rumors claim her arrival foretells Eidolia’s destruction. With the help of a cockatrice whose family is stuck in the humanlands, Luma discovers the voice that guided her to Eidolia is that of a siren. But to find him and regain control of her mind, she must prove she’s no death knell come to trigger their extinction.
Unless, of course, she is.
A BREATH OF SILVER
YA historical fantasy with a speculative twist (OUTLANDER meets NEVER LET ME GO).
In London’s future, a young historian uncovers the forgotten Underground and flees through it to save her dying commune, only to emerge in 1692, seeking what links her town and this time.
In 2138, on apprentice historian Bryn MacBride’s eighteenth birthday, she finally makes a discovery—maybe even one that will shape her isolated town’s future: an underground door in the ruins. Behind it is an entrance to the forgotten London Underground, buried and contaminated after a magical disaster destroyed the city. After five years of working beside her best friend and mentor Thomas, Bryn’s sure this will secure her a place in the history books. But hours after informing Thomas, Bryn finds their research office burning to the ground, with Thomas inside.
Days before, Thomas had made his own discovery, that their idyllic artisan commune of Cimmersea was built on a dark secret. Desperate to protect the last of Thomas’s work from a council who would silence truth to protect their privileged lifestyle, Bryn flees to the underground, traveling through deserted train tunnels until she emerges outside Cimmersea’s borders. In the year 1692.
Seeking answers among her ancestors in the Scottish Highlands, Bryn must untangle Cimmersea’s sinister link to the past while questioning everything her beloved mentor believed. But the bloody Glencoe Massacre looms, giving Bryn a choice: bring help back to a future that could imprison her, or leave her legacy in a breathtaking past that tempts her to defy all they held sacred.
WORLD INSIDE A GIRL
YA fantasy for fans of Laini Taylor, Rachel Vincent, and Holly Black.
A Cornish teen hopes to keep her lifelong nightly dreams of a succubus secret from her best friend—until she becomes one.
18-year-old Elowen has learned to bury her strange truth, even as she longs for someone to accept it. Every night since childhood, Elowen’s dreamt of a succubus named Storie, whose peaceful race in the realm called Eidolia is nothing like human folklore describes. Having splintered her family with the stress of her troubling disorder, Elowen’s told no one else—not even best friend Brie. But their final seaside summer together in Falmouth, England is threatened when an Eidolian tattoo appears on Elowen’s scalp.
Soon, flesh-and-blood Eidols, various beings from Storie’s realm, emerge around the globe. Worldwide panic blooms, and possessing a visible link she can’t explain, Elowen flees Falmouth to protect Brie, but makes a shocking discovery.
Elowen was Storie, and the dreams are her memories. Eighteen years ago she became a changeling, sacrificing her first life to take over a dying human child’s body on a mission vital to Eidolia. With fragmented memories and desperation to halt the spreading chaos, Elowen must resume Storie’s mission—even if it means risking the only human friendship she’s ever known.
