But the years have washed away her hope. What are Mattie and Molly doing now? Where has life taken them? Will she ever see her brother and sister again?
Joan Sanderson's life is stuck. Her older sister, Allie, is starting a family and her younger sister, Tori, has a budding career. Meanwhile, Joan is living at home with Mom and looking after her aging grandmother. Not exactly a recipe for excitement. That is, until a hunky young doctor moves in next door. Suddenly Joan has a goal--to get a date. But it won't be easy. Pretty Tori flirts relentlessly with him and Joan is sure that she can't compete. But with a little help from God, Allie, and an enormous mutt with bad manners, maybe Joan can find her way out of this rut.
When sixteen-year-old Jensen Meadows finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient faerie war, she soon learns that faeries aren't made of sparkly goodness. They're vicious. And worse, they're after her. With the help of Liam Casey, she delves into their world to find her missing sister and begins to suspect that her whole life has been nothing more than a faerie tale.
But what if the truth is worse? In a far-future galaxy ruled by an anti-technology, theocratic regime, a young boy rescued from a backwater, working-class "outlier" world embodies a genetic errancy that might save mankind from its luddism and hypocrisy -- if the regime doesn't first seize him and consign him to the dreaded planet Lindenau, the repository of genetic misfits known as "nonconforms.
Strange infestations of bug-like creatures known as "armadillia" presage massive alien attacks upon planets and ships, obliterating the technology-hobbled Irredente forces who would defend them. Unknown to the Irredente, Henryk, a genetically-errant orphan, has the ability to communicate with the armadillia, the last vestige of an alien race from far beyond Irredente space. If he can escape the governing-class "conforming" humans who would consign him to oblivion, Henryk holds the key to transforming and saving humanity by discovering the nature and identity of the aliens stalking it.
With an array of compelling characters and elaborate, clock-works plotting, Book I in the Irredente Chronicles transports the reader on a voyage of discovery into far-future worlds -- and into the heart of science and consciousness. Worshiped as gods for their wisdom and power, they corrupted the realm of the physical and forever altered the course of history. But with the cataclysmic destruction of earth and rebirth of humanity, the prophecy went unfulfilled and eventually faded from the memory of our kind—until now!
What remain now are numerous fragmented worlds moving simultaneously through time, sharing a common history, connected only by a guarded portal.
