Dreading her first day at a new school, Alex is stunned when she walks through a doorway and finds herself stranded in Medora, a fantasy world full of impossibilities. Desperate to return home, she learns that only a man named Professor Marselle can help her… but he’s missing.

While waiting for him to reappear, Alex attends Akarnae Academy, Medora’s boarding school for teenagers with extraordinary gifts. She soon starts to enjoy her bizarre new world and the friends who embrace her as one of their own, but strange things are happening at Akarnae, and Alex can’t ignore her fear that something unexpected… something sinister… is looming.

An unwilling pawn in a deadly game, Alex’s shoulders bear the crushing weight of an entire race’s survival. Only she can save the Medorans, but what if doing so prevents her from ever returning home?

Will Alex risk her entire world-and maybe even her life-to save Medora?

The Misshapes

Posted 19 February, 2015 by Alex in book reviews

Some people have powers.
Some people do not.
And some people just might change the world.
Sarah Robertson is one of those people.

Sarah is no ordinary girl: she can control the weather with her emotions. But in Doolittle Falls where superheroes walk the streets (and fly over them), Sarah’s powers aren’t enough for admission to the prestigious Hero Academy. Not to mention that her mother is a notorious Supervillain and the archnemesis of America’s favorite Hero, Freedom Man. Instead of being accepted to the school of her dreams, Sarah is marked as an outcast with powers – a Misshape.

Now she’s stuck with a ragtag group of fellow Misshapes, her dreams of heroism on hold indefinitely. Yet Sarah is determined to harness her powers to win a place at Hero Academy. But the path to greatness won’t be easy. Her brother’s rebellious streak is starting to wear thin, she has an intriguing (and smoking hot) new mentor, and an unexpected romance blooms with superstar Hero Freedom Boy. And when Doolittle Falls comes under threat of annihilation, Sarah has to prove there may be more to the Misshapes than everyone thinks.

And she may just kick some Supervillain butt in the process.

But someone doesn’t want Cassie to become Pythia, and is willing to go to any lengths to make sure the coronation ceremony never happens- including attacking her mother before Cassie is even born.

The Dark World

Posted 4 February, 2015 by Alex in book reviews

Paige Kelly is used to weird—in fact, she probably corners the market on weird, considering that her best friend, Dottie, has been dead since the 1950s. But when a fire demon attacks Paige in detention, she has to admit that things have gotten out of her league. Luckily, the cute new boy in school, Logan Bradley, is a practiced demonslayer—and he isn’t fazed by Paige’s propensity to chat with the dead. Suddenly, Paige is smack in the middle of a centuries-old battle between warlocks and demons, learning to fight with a magic sword so that she can defend herself. And if she makes one wrong move, she’ll be pulled into the Dark World, an alternate version of our world that’s overrun by demons—and she might never make it home.
