The Night the Stars Fell

Book One of the Fire and Starlight Saga

"My name is Astra Downs, and in three days I may destroy the world."

Magic has been dead for centuries, so the fact that Astra and Kato have some sort of power crawling beneath their skin may a sign that something is about to happen. The fact that they're twins is even more significant since no twins have ever been born before—not in their kingdom of Callenia or anywhere else on their continent. The power they hold is unknown and ancient, either or a gift or curse from the gods, and the closer they get to their eighteenth birthday, the closer it comes to breaking free and destroying everyone and everything they love. 


When a handsome young stranger with connections to the prince of Callenia appears in their nothing town of Timberborn, they may finally have access to the answers they've been seeking their entire lives. Soon, they're running for their lives from a fearful king and the trust of strangers and new friends may be their only chance at survival and controlling their manifesting powers.

Scars: Alak's Story

A Fire and Starlight Novella | Book 1.5

Alak's world fell apart when he was ten years old. Since then he's been alone. He was content with his life until that fateful day shortly after his fifteenth birthday when he met Isabella.


Embervein was supposed to be just another stop along the road, another hustle, another city with alleys to sleep in at night. But Fate intervened, putting him in the path of the crown prince and his friends, including the lovely Isabella Bramfield. Isabella was a bright light in the midst of Alak's dark life, and for the first time in a long time he felt joy and hope. He had a future. He had worth. He had friends . . .

But nothing good lasts forever.

Jessalynn thought Callenia and all it stood for was solidly in her past, but when Princess Cadewynn shows up on her doorstep asking for help to raise an army, Jess has a big decision to make.

Stray: Kai's Story

Kai is fine with being alone, or at least he was until he met Astra and her friends. Now after years of being a lone wolf, he may have found his pack, even if they aren't all shifters. After all, what else would have him traveling into a foreign kingdom to take down a rogue shifter?


With the help of Eleni, a cynical shifter without a pack, Kai hunts down Hammon, a cruel wolf shifter with more power than one person should have. Soon Kai finds himself dangerously tangled in long forgotten blood magic that threatens to take everything from him.

Forced to face his grief and past, Kai has a tough decision to make. Is it worth risking his life to take out Hammon, or would he better off to let things work out on their own?
