Sample image The Darkest Lie, Book One in the Shaerealm Series. 15 year old Thane feels like he doesn't belong in his own life. He isn't good at anything, really, and sometimes all he wants to do is disappear. Then he meets Remi, an energetic girl who decides to be his friend and bring him out of the shadows of his own life. Being her friend means being noticed, and suddenly everyone is paying attention. His chemistry teacher might be trying to kill him and a secret organization is trying to recruit him. Thane discovers nothing about him is as ordinary as he thought, including his ability to hear the music of the universe and manipulate the strings that hold it all together. But it all comes with a price. When Remi's life and the world of the Shae are threatened, Thane has to decide whether he has the power to withstand the leviathan inside and if his song is enough to save them all. The only burden he carries is the fate of all worlds.

Sample image The Sound at the Edge, Book two in The Shaerealm series. Thane found the power of his Song in time to save his best friend Remi, but in so doing, burned it out. He's left part dragon, part human, and songless to start over again in Sanctum to train himself to control the monster that rages within. Remi comes along and discovers her mother is alive. Trapped in the Shaerealm and held captive, Remi's mother might have found a weapon that could change the balance of power in the realms forever. But Sanctum won't save her. It's up to Remi, Thane, and anyone else they can convince to come with them to break all the rules and bargain with the ancient ones to find a way across the void of space and escape to a world where all the laws of nature have changed. If they succeed they'll reunite a family. If they fail, they and anyone with them will die. And if they can't make the journey in the right way at the right time with the right people, the Weave itself may unravel and drag all their worlds into unmaking.
