Description: As far as Andy Smithson knows, he is a more-or-less ordinary 10-year-old boy, neglected by his overachieving parents and annoyed by his pampered older sister. What he doesn't know is that he is also the latest in a line of rulers of the land of Oomaldee and the one destined to save that kingdom from a curse put on it 500 years before Andy's birth. Andy is magically pulled into Oomaldee while washing dishes one evening, and the adventure begins--an adventure that includes fire-breathing dragons, a lisping wizard, flying horses, people-eating giants, and many new and delightful friends.
Maggie Kean life is turning upside down. First, there’s her ongoing relationship with the sexy detective, the man who drives her crazy outside of the bedroom and, well, equally as crazy inside the bedroom. Maggie knows that her feelings for Sam Villari have grown way past anything she’s ever experienced before, but that doesn’t stop her from fighting it.
Then there’s the ongoing struggle with her father, a man who abandoned her emotionally the day her mother died. But now, years later, he’s reaching out to Maggie, hoping she can forgive him--hoping it’s not too late to get past the hurt and anger to rebuild their bond as father and daughter.
Description: It has been twelve years since the guardian star came down from the sky, hunting the elusive child destined to save the ailing sun. The end of the land is nigh, while darkness slowly rolls over the looming horizon. The creeping fog harvests an army of beastly children, and the sun will set one last time over the kingdom of Bune.
But there is hope. And it comes in the form of a twelve-year-old boy with a wooden leg, chosen to save the sun from its untimely death. Unfortunately, young Luca has no idea that he's the one.
And so the heart-pulsing adventure begins when Luca and his friends Vehru and Pabru are thrown into a frightening world of creatures both deadly and beautiful, caught in the middle of a cosmic war between gallant stars and darkly shadows. Follow Luca as he comes of age, struggling to advance in mastery at the prestigious Blade School of Daví while pining for the heart of his affectionate crush, Lereh of Heatheranla, all before being confronted by a mysterious woman, claiming Luca as her own and bringing with her an army of shadowed warriors bred solely for one purpose--to bring about the death of the setting sun.
