Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the year 2098 America isn't so different from the USA of today. But, in a post-9/11 security-obssessed world, "secured" doesn't just refer to borders between countries, it also refer to borders between states. Teenagers still think they know everything, but there is no cure for cancer, as Kelsa knows first-hand from watching her father die.
 
The night Kelsa buries her father, a boy appears. He claims magic is responsible for the health of Earth, but  human damage disrupts its flow. The planet is dying.
 
Kelsa has the power to reverse the damage, but first she must accept that magic exists and see beyond her own pain in order to heal the planet.

Synopsis:

In a high-tech, high-security world where bioterrorism threatens to cripple the ecosystem, magic is the last thing on anyones mind. Something bad is happening to the world. Trees are dying. Cancer is on the rise and becoming more aggressive. When Kelsas father dies of the disease, science offers no answers. Then, fifteen-year-old Kelsa meets the most beautiful boy shes ever seen. But hes also very strange. Claiming to be a mythological Raven, he goes on about magic, impending ecological disaster, and his need for Kelsas help to save the world.

Maybe hes crazy. But what if hes telling the truth?

Synopsis:

Something bad is happening to the world. Trees are dying. Cancer is on the rise and becoming more aggressive. Kesla saw that first hand as she watched her father die from the disease. Science offers no answers.

Then fifteen-year-old Kelsa meets a boy. He's the most beautiful boy she's ever seen, but he's also very strange. He claims to be Raven, the mythological creature. He keeps going on about magic and an impending ecological disaster and insisting the Kelsa must help him save the world.

Maybe he's crazy.

Or maybe he's telling her truths people have forgotten. And maybe she should help him, even if doing so means risking her own life.
