At a rapid pace, Princess Ebba grows into a smart child. Hulde notices that this curious girl resembles Atta more and more – and that is not a gift. When they discover an abandoned bird’s nest in a rabbit cave, Ebba wants to go on a trip just like her father. But, is she as brave as him?

The epic conclusion to The Gods and Kings Chronicles.
Cinders and ash.
That is the future that awaits the world if Evelyn cannot control the limitless power residing in the heart of the Guardian Stone. But she is running out of time. A dozen conspiring hands are trying to claim the Orb of Azure for themselves, and worse still, she must now contest with a god.
Half a world away, Captain Bently’s quest to awaken the Guardian has failed. The cost of the journey has been high. Prince Desperous has been killed, and the mysterious wizard Ivatelo has proven more dangerous than anyone supposed possible. But a more dire truth haunts Bently’s mind — the Guardian is not the savior they seek.
THE GUARDIAN STONE tells of the struggle to save the world of the living from the dominion of the undead. But with all eyes focused on Luthuania and the final battle with the necromancer, none have noticed that an even greater menace is lurking in the Shadows, the most treacherous of all.
With the specter of defeat looming high, there is only one certainty — the world is going to burn. Will the Guardian Stone be Laveria’s salvation or the spark?

Just because it’s happening in your head doesn’t mean it isn’t real…
All Renee Ward ever wanted out of life was two things: Good friends to share her love of fantasy and fairy tales, and for magic to be real. When her family moves to the quaint coastal town of Waterside, it seems as if her dreams have finally come true. But after a visit from the mysterious Blake Carter, Renee’s new utopian life suddenly turns into a never-ending nightmare.
With the line between fantasy and reality blurred, the teens find themselves the unwilling pawns in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Their very survival now hinges on Renee’s overactive imagination. Unfortunately, that’s also what got them into this mess.
The serial killer’s victims have one thing in common. They share their names with plants.
In South Carolina, children swap stories of a monstrous urban legend to liven up a sleepy summer–not realizing a very real predator lurks nearby. When 17-year-old Dusty Miller is marked as a target, he’ll need to untangle kids’ tales from true dangers in this rich Southern mystery.
Her whole life, Alexia Garcia has been told that she looks just like rock star Kari Kingsley. But being a famous person’s doppelganger hasn’t turned out to be the teen fantasy you’d expect. People look at Alexia like she must be as ditzy as her counterpart. One day when Alexia’s photo filters through the Internet, she’s offered a job as Kari’s double. This would seem like the opportunity of a lifetime–or at least a way to make some fast cash–but Alexia’s mother has always warned her against celebrities. They can’t be trusted. They’ll use her.
Alexia can’t resist the siren call of fame. Who could say no to Hollywood, hot guys, and . . . um, did we mention hot guys already? She flies off to L.A. and gets immersed in a celebrity life. Not only does she have to get used to getting anything she wants, she also romances the hottest lead singer on the charts and finds out that her own father is a singing legend. Through it all, Alexia must stay true to herself, which is hard to do when you are pretending to be somebody else!
This Prince and the Pauper retelling is teen comedy at its best.
Publishers Weekly has called Janette’s YA contemporary romances “Hilarious.”
Donja Bellanger, suffering after the death of her father, finds herself in dire straits when her mom takes a new husband. Forced not only to move to a strange city, but to share a room with her glamorous, new stepsister, Makayla Hampton, her life spirals out of control.
Makayla lures her from goth to glam straight into an exclusive club, not only for wealthy elites but Immortal Descendants. Donja crosses paths with Torin Mancini and he’s too damn handsome to be real.
Torin, who has concealed his identity as a powerful ancient sprit known as an Iridescent for eight hundred years, sets his eyes on Donja; there’s something about her blood, something he can’t walk away from. He’s not alone. A deadly predator has picked up her scent.
Stalked, she reaches out to Torin, but the lure of her blood has him on edge. As Torin battles his heart desires and feelings he thought buried and gone, one thing is clear: they have as much, if not more to fear of each other, than the predator who would have her life.
Is love enough? Can she accept him for what he is and better yet, can he control his hungry, hungry eyes?
A beautiful love story with relentless action, elite battles and steamy moments… unforgettable!
