Seventeen-year-old Enzi Montgomery had worn the stone around her neck for years. It was set in a cheap metal fitting, nothing fancy.
But it made her wonder if she was crazy.
Sometimes, when she had it on, she could disappear. She couldn't make it happen. It just worked on its own. But always at convenient times, like when she'd needed to hide again from Caleb.
Maybe she'd only been imagining it; insomnia could do that to you. The nightmares had never left since that day seven years ago and she'd never really learned to cope with them.
But what if she wasn't crazy?
When she finds out that someone else has been searching for the stone--someone from another world--she must decide what to do with it. Should she get rid of it? Or find out what other secrets it holds?
Gaedyen has vanished. The stone has been stolen. And nightmares continue to plague Enzi. But all that’s nothing compared to the coming battle.
Alone, abandoned, and out of options, Enzi must decide if she can trust the Crivabanians—a squirrel-like race who want her out of their realm. Struggling to keep her presence a secret, she develops an unlikely friendship with Veri, the sarcastically witty apprentice to the local healer.
When she overhears earth-shattering news about herself, she can wait no longer. She must seek the truth for herself, with or without Gaedyen.
But Enzi wages war in her own mind, fighting to break down the wall preventing her from mastering her power of invisibility. Legends of the great Cathawyr race and a diabolical weapon ripple to life in this riveting sequel to The Gwythienian.
"The Cathawyr is an action-packed, high-stakes, heartfelt ending to the Odan Terridor trilogy - a journey of strength, love, duty, redemption, and above all, healing. This is a thrilling conclusion you can't miss!"
Author of The Chaos Circus and The Starchaser Saga
With one enemy vanquished and a new villain on the rise, Enzi, Gaedyen, and Veri race against time to keep their end of their bargain with the Cathawyr realm. But when Veri becomes mysteriously ill and their deal proves impossible to keep, Enzi and Gaedyen must make a new plan to decipher the truth about the past and save their friend.
When one of the Possessors who died weeks ago turns out to still be alive and one of their trio is struck an ultimately fatal blow with the arkencain, their goals become even more challenging to reach.
As the three of them work to prevent a war between the realms, Enzi stumbles onto the chance to fight against her own personal nightmare back home-but she can only win if she joins forces with an old enemy.
Join Enzi and her friends on this epic journey of discovery, acceptance, and inner strength in the final installment of the Odan Terridor trilogy.

for the Odan Terridor Trilogy!!!
The new covers featuring the eyes of the creature in the book's title were just supposed to be a fun bit of art printed directly on the hardcovers underneath the dust jacket.
But fans raved about the new cover style so much that it has now become the permanent style for the series in all formats.
A huge thank you to my incredible cover artist, Ingrid Nordli!
The original blue covers will still be the dust jackets on the hardcovers, so you can choose between the original or the new covers by simply removing the jacket or leaving it in place.
A Spiraling of Thunder
Previously nicknamed Firedrakes and Aquasaurs, A Spiraling of Thunder is the first book in my time travel fantasy series. I'm working on this one in between the Odan Terridor books and I'm super excited about it!
We're talking time travel fantasy, dragons (because of course!), the art of tree weaving (which is a real thing!), and a badass lady with lots of paleontological tattoos.
There is SO much more to this story than the aesthetic can say. I'm really stoked about getting this story refined and out into the world!

Griffins and River Magic
Currently going by the working title, "Griffins and River Magic," my 2019 NaNoWriMo novel and sixth fully-drafted manuscript is in the works.
It was writing a certain scene in this book that made me cry more than ever before over something I've written giving me all the feels.
That's all you get to know for now :)
The Castors of Wrynford Saga
The Castors of Wrynford Saga is a five-book young adult fantasy series featuring an ensemble cast of human characters and their castlings, a variety of animals including an iguana, a black bear, a serval, and this crazy giant bird called a harpy eagle, which has the most attitudinous feathery hairdo I've ever seen!
Book one, Whisper of Weapons, is the only title announced so far. Each of the other four books does have a title though, and I'll be announcing them in my newsletter first!
Until more information is available, check out this blurb for Whisper and these character profiles for a little sneak peek at what's to come!
Whisper of Weapons
It’s Mella’s sixteenth year, and finally her turn to find out what animal will manifest from her chosen weapon to be her lifelong companion and comrade. Yet she fails to call her castling from her instrument of war, and instead brings her forth from a contraband instrument of music.
But when Mella gets caught and her illegal castling is sentenced to death by shattering, Mella uncovers an even bigger secret that could save her castling's life.
With the help of a long-forgotten prisoner, a mean girl, and some spiked punch, Mella takes a stab...at the wrong bad guy.
