The Portal Prophecies Series
A Keeper's Destiny
What if the World as you know it wasn't the only World? What if all the creatures you have heard about in stories did exist? The Portal Prophecies follows an ancient race sworn not only to protect all creation in different realms in existence, but to keep them separate from each other as well. When a battle ends badly, it's up to Willow and her friends to step in. But can these young teens discover their hidden past, overcome the deception of their leaders, decipher the prophecies, and save lives in countless worlds or will they be too late?
A Halloween's Curse
Why do prophecies have to speak in riddles? Willow's destiny led her to a whole book of them. If that wasn't bad enough a gypsy witch shows up and utters words that made even less sense. Was it a curse or another prediction?
With Mike still missing, and Halloween approaching quickly Willow will need all of her friends to help connect the events of the past with the present or there may not be a future. King Cornelius' plan to dominate every realm is woven into the mystery that surrounds every corner they turn. Following the clues will lead them on a journey through the spookiest time of the year.
Willow and her friends are back and find themselves under the scrutiny of the magical inhabitants of the main world. Everyone seems to be against them including the directors, the mayor and Keith Quidnunk, the intern journalist for 'The Empowered' newspaper who none of them have ever seen. At the same time Lance has asked for Willow's help but she will have to survive King Cornelius' wrath.
Join Willow and her friends to find out what wonders await them as they explore frozen lands. Can they save Santa and Christmas from destruction? Can they avoid being sanctioned by the magical community?
It’s the final meeting of the camp before Willow and her friends find themselves whisked away to different schools hidden all over the main world. When Cassandrhea Tibbins interrupts, changes in plans are set in motion. With ‘The Empowered’ newspaper, run by the Quidnunks, continuing to pipe out damaging articles about Willow, there is no choice but to hide her from everyone. Never has she felt so isolated and helpless. It will take all of Willow’s strength to muster enough courage to face old and new enemies without the support of her allies.
This fourth book of the Portal Prophecies series, delves deep into the understanding of magic and self-discovery. The plot continues to twist and turn as Cornelius’ ideas dive further into madness. Will Willow be able to handle this new pressure of hiding everything about herself from assassins, reporters, and new enemies or will she end up on the run from everyone? Will she be able to figure out the meaning of the latest prophecy alone?
With Hilary gone, Willow finds herself at the mercy of the elves. There is some strange connection between the elves and recent events. The elf realm holds so many answers she so desperately needs. It won't be easy though. Strict rules have been broken and someone needs to pay the price. In her journey to discovery, she is guaranteed to meet new friends and find new adventures. Unfortunately, there is also a new enemy lurking in the shadows. Can the prophecies help her this time? Will anyone rally to her side?
Meanwhile in the main world, Malarchy sets his sights on Hilary's old job. Can he use new found power to help Willow and the rest of the camp? Or will he side with Kasper and the other directors? Don't count King Cornelius out either. He's guaranteed to have his hand in something sinister.
This fifth book of the Portal Prophecies series, is jam packed with fast paced adventure that you won't want to miss. Finally, Willow's past is beginning to make sense. The only problem is figuring out what is real and what is not. Can Willow take things as she perceives them? A wrong choice could potentially be deadly.
The cards are stacked against Willow. Two evil kings seek destruction; The Department of Secrecy wants to imprison her; the memory potion has everyone in disarray; and she is running low on allies. Can she overcome the odds and bring balance back to the realms? It all comes down to one final battle – winner takes all.
When it's all said and done, who will be left standing? This epic conclusion to The Portal Prophecies series will provide all the answers readers are itching to know.
Escape To Darkness
This series is the perfect addition to any Vampire fan's collection.
Space travel. To some it is an advancement; a way to meet new races, learn new traditions; explore new cultures - a chance to expand the mind with knowledge of the unknown. To others, it is nothing more than a new outlet of resources to exploit and destroy. To the naive and trusting it is a recipe for disaster. The question of whether or not venturing into the realm of the stars is worthwhile, is a topic that will be argued for generations to come.
The Universe - vast and never ending. It recycles within itself. What happened before comes full circle and occurs again. Some call it fate - others destiny.
