Keira Ryan is a guardian, a supernatural creature on which the myth of the tooth fairy was based. Not that you could tell by looking at her. She looks like any other high school freshman. She even has the same worries. Her best friend is dating a stuck-up cheerleader, and she’s crushing on a junior.
But there’s more (there always is)…Keira finds out she isn’t just any guardian, she’s the prophesied child “of sun and moon”, destined to bring about the end of the house of Gammen which rules over the Mogdoc Empire.
What’s a mogdoc, you ask? Think of a gremlin crossed with a swamp monster, then give it supernatural speed, agility, strength, and a taste for human blood.
Set in a picturesque rural, river town in southern Ohio, Of Sun & Moon has been described by readers as Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Harry Potter.
WHISPERING EVIL, Book 2
Keira Ryan’s best friend is acting strangely these days, but maybe it’s just that he can’t wrap his head around her unlikely new mogdoc ally or her new, hot guardian mentor. He’ll have to deal because it’s time to take on a new ruler of the Mogdoc Empire.
Despite her readiness, the guardian elders are cautious. Watch and wait are their orders, but when has Keira ever asked for permission?
MIDNIGHT CHILD, Book 3
Join Keira as she chases her destiny in this exciting third installment of the Midnight Guardian Series. While Keira searches, the mogdocs draw closer and a new alliance emerges to threaten the existence of her charge, the midnight child. A strange locket passed to her on Christmas Eve may be the key to unlocking secrets at the Great Serpent Mound. A history of trust is tested. A promise of passion turns deadly. A surviving evil creates doubt and there’s only one way to stop it…Find the Gift. Just what do you get the spoiled gremlin queen who has everything?
SHADOWS RISING, Book 4
For hundreds of years, these dark woods have held a secret. Every living part of it knows, from the top-most leaf on the tallest oak to the tiniest earthworm needling through the earth below. They see them. They hear them. They feel them. They fear them. They are forced to watch with no way to scream out. No way to stop the shadows.
Senior year has begun. Keira Ryan should be worrying about the two boys vying for her heart. She should be worrying about Prom. She should be worrying about graduation. But instead of a dress, she’s choosing which dagger to carry. An ancient evil is working to infiltrate our world, and she’s the only one who can stop it…the “Child of Sun & Moon”.
In this fourth installment in the series, Keira and her friends race against time to rescue her charge before The Harvest. They must hurry. Their enemies are bringing forth a new force to sway the balance toward evil. The shadows are rising.
SIREN’S CALL, A Midnight Guardian Short Story
While Keira’s adventure is told in Shadows Rising, this short follows Keira’s human friends, Jumper Johnson and Colby Hayes, as the boys find themselves in the center of history’s most magically dangerous city.
BOOK OF THE LOST, Book 5
DEATH. LOVE. WEREWOLVES. JEALOUSY. SHADOWS. PROM. UNIONISTS. BETRAYAL. A NEW EMPEROR. GRADUATION.
Whoever said senior year would be easy?
As senior year draws to a close, a new hope bound in leather promises to be the answer to the mystery of Keira Ryan’s destiny. The Book of the Lost is ancient and powerful. It is said to have the power to restore the balance of good and evil. It’s also unreadable and wanted by every bad guy between here and Atlantis. Enter the world of the Midnight Guardian where nothing is ever as it seems.
HOUSE OF GAMMEN, Book 6 & Finale
Forward to the Fall.
Do you remember the story told in whispers of the mogdocs, ancient creatures with a flame of contempt for humankind? As the mogdocs claw their way back into our world, Keira Ryan and her friends take a final stand.
With one friend trapped in time and the other chasing down a ghost, Keira Ryan must find it in herself to move past the damage caused by her misplaced trust and fulfill her destiny to bring forth the fall of the House of Gammen. Can she defeat the royal line before the gremlin-like creatures of Atlantis cross into our world?
All your favorite characters are back in House of Gammen, the perfect culmination of this teen, light fantasy series. Readers have fallen in love with the story based in magic, but set in the rural heartland of America.
