A Gift of Poison
Bestselling Amazon author of THE FROST CHRONICLES, Kate Avery Ellison, delivers a fantasy novel packed with clever betrayals, surprising twists, and many moments of delicious vindication for its scrappy heroine. This is a must-read for fans of Sarah J. Maas’s THRONE OF GLASS, Maria V. Snyder’s POISON STUDY, Megan Whalen Turner's THE THIEF, and Sabaa Tahir’s AN EMBER IN THE ASHES.
Briand just wants to survive.
Oh, she's clever. She's quick with knives and even quicker with cards. She can scramble up a castle wall. She can ride a bad-tempered stallion with her arms tied behind her back.
But her odd, unseemly skills have never been enough to protect her, for she's an orphan, no better than a guttersnipe in her uncle's eyes. Because the lord of the manor despises her, everyone else feels free to as well. The guards, her cousin's tutor... Even Kael, the handsome, enigmatic young steward who has protected her from her uncle’s wrath too many times already, sees her as nothing but trouble with a sassy tongue and pretty green eyes.
But when Briand unexpectedly--and accidentally--gains the power to control dragons, she becomes the weapon to winning the kingdom's bitter civil war.
Terrifying magic users called Seekers are now hunting her as Briand plunges into a world of danger, betrayal, and secrets, with only a motley band of rebel fighters to protect her. Or have they kidnapped her? It's hard to tell sometimes.
Briand's going to need all her cleverness to survive.

Cam Mackintosh is in his last year of a science degree at Melbourne University when he is offered the opportunity of a lifetime, the chance to help establish an entirely sustainable community on an island off the coast of Australia following a deadly outbreak. The community is presented with a clean slate; a completely new eco-village, protected from the outside world, but with much of the knowledge and technology of today. The community on August Island thrives and is established on modern values of gender equality and cultural inclusion.
In their second year, Cam overcomes his personal challenges and finds love with Freyja. Life is idyllic until Freyja goes missing. Cam follows her to Scotland using Antipodes, an ancient secret, referenced by many cultures throughout history. There he connects with another sustainable community on the island of Lewis, much like his own. Strangers become friends, and he realises he has found his forever home, the place where he is genuinely "of the land". His new friends include Fraser, who shares his passion for sustainable agriculture and Laetitia, a psychologist turned teacher with a challenging past. Despite his contentment, his loyalty and commitment to Freyja continue to haunt him, and Cam travels outside the protection of the communities in search of Freyja and other communities like theirs.
Now with 26 four and five-star reviews on GoodReads, Antipodes is described by one reviewer: While this falls into the ‘dystopian’ fiction genre, it sits nicely next to Kyle Perry’s The Bluffs and The Survivors by Jane Harper. The character development is great and I’m itching to know what happens next! If you ever watched The Beach, or read Handmaid’s Tale or Outlander, there are elements of both in here that make it a totally enjoyable read. (Fairlie, GoodReads).
To discover the truth,
she will bleed.
Was it suicide? Two months after finding her stepmother’s corpse, Maddy is still unconvinced. Magic users like her stepmother don’t spill their blood without purpose.
Blood magic is illegal for minors. But both of Maddy’s birth parents are long dead, and the truth is all she has left. She starts her investigation with a few familiar spells—finding lost objects, summoning the dead.
Soon, she draws the attention of a man with an unexplained connection to her stepmother—a man with power so big and so lethal that it shouldn’t exist. But who’s going to believe a grief-stricken kid when she claims impossible magic killed her stepmother?
Maddy must decide what the truth is worth. Her friends? Her freedom? Or even her own life?
The power of memories.

When dark secrets are revealed, Hudson must confront the truth about his idol and himself. Bruce Michaels isn’t who he seems. Hudson is nearly lost. And in the end, they may be more similar than different.
The search for meaning.
Different paths, converging in a web of alcohol, fights, and romance. Worlds collide one summer in Anywhere, USA. The question is who will make it through.
EVERYTHING, SOMEWHERE is an ambitious, sprawling look at the stories, people, and places forming the nuanced landscape of rural America.
Ivan the Giant
Ivan Morrow has spent his short life waiting for things to happen. Now something has happened. An unknown ancestor has entrusted him with something of great value and it has gone missing. But who stole it and how to get it back? He's grown extraordinarily over the last year since turning eleven, but his mind is stuck in a kid-sized brain. Now he must match wits with a desperate thief if he is to honour the trust placed in him by his distant relative.
"IVAN THE GIANT uses a concrete mystery to spur abstract philosophical musings, resulting in a unique coming-of-age detective story." - IndieReader
"A measured, engrossing story that turns philately into a quiet mystery." - Kirkus
The Keystone: Finding Home
“Sixteen years as a nomad…
I used to love it, just the three of us, a team, moving to the next adventure. Now, when my dad changes jobs like some people change underwear, it just gives me a stomachache.”
Grace Thompson is used to moving—and losing. She’s already lost her mother, her home, and any hope for a normal life. But when her father is abducted from the streets of San Francisco, Grace is determined to get him back. She thinks she is alone until she meets four strangers whose parents went missing at the same time. The teens work together to track down the clues to their parents’ pasts with only an alien stone to guide them. With the kidnappers closing in, the only way to save them is to unravel the secret her mother died to protect her from.
This is a fast-paced, action-packed, young adult adventure story with a touch of romance. Fans of mystery, low angst thrillers, alien stories, contemporary sci-fi, travel, girl main characters, found family, and friendship fiction will love The Keystone!
The Keystone: Finding Home is Book 1 in the Elements Series but is a complete story with an HEA and no cliffhangers.
