THE CUP OF QUEENS
Time is running out . . .
Before long, every Landaffin colony will be exposed, explored, and exploited by humans, resulting in devastating consequences. Laura remains the Landaffin’s only hope, but first she must find the last forgotten colony if she’s to restore balance to both worlds—Landaffin and human.
With Brell at her side, and Todd and Thriss joining their plight, they explore the treacherous Alaskan wilderness. Enduring heavy snowstorms and fighting hungry polar bears, they push onward, barely escaping death. When Brell is lost, and Todd and Thriss mysteriously disappear,
Laura is left on her own to find help in unexpected, unconventional places. Laura must save her friends before Brell is sacrificed during the “dance of lights in the sky,” but little does she know, back home, her human family is being terrorized by the Landaffins who want her dead.
Laura must choose between both worlds. One choice will lead to a war without Landaffin magic, giving humans the unfair advantage. But the other choice could mean death to those she loves.
To maintain balance between both worlds, there is only one thing Laura can do—harness the power of the North, and finally restore peace and hope to Landaffia.
A truce has brought the Grove peace—but things are not as they appear.
Deep within a secret rainforest, live the keepers of unknown spells—a lost Landaffen colony with the power to keep Laura from fulfilling her fate by setting a trap and using Prince Brell as bait.
But Laura has become more Landaffen than human, her abilities sharpening as she infiltrates the forgotten and unforgiving Grove. She must learn to control the colony’s magic before their powers are at their peak.
If she fails, Prince Brell will die, and the joining of both worlds will be incomplete. It is Laura’s duty. Her calling. Faith must be restored, and the enemy defeated.
With a broken treaty and imminent conflict bringing death and war, Laura must build trust and bring order . . . before the PERILUNE!
Entering the woods is forbidden. To go in can mean a fate worse than death. At least that’s what seventeen-year-old Laura has been told. But living in a new town with nothing to do, she ignores her mother’s dire warnings and explores the forest near her home.
The trees entice Laura deeper into the woods. A mysterious, soothing voice calls her name, and she becomes lost. When a young man finds her, she thinks she’s saved. But he insists their meeting is more than a coincidence. For centuries, his colony has been waiting for a savior. With his alluring eyes and gentle smile, Laura almost believes his crazy story.
Caught between worlds, and with her life at stake, she doesn’t know who to believe or trust. Her heart tells her one thing and her head another.
Is it her destiny, or will her fate only postpone the inevitable?
