Until a surprise visit by the last wizard of the outlawed High Council gives Donan one last, desperate chance to outmaneuver those trying to kill him. But to do it, he must appear to become the traitor he’s accused of being.
What if you were transported to a land without color? And the only one who could restore it was you? When Alvin gets a mysterious pack of gum for his birthday, he, of course, blows a bubble as large as he can. But when that bubble carries him away to a far-off land where everything is gray, he’s in for the adventure of his life, and more than a little danger….because he’s the only one who can restore the Kingdom of Color to its former glory.
The future of our civilization has always been in the hands of our children. What you may not know is that many years ago, a few of our young ones fought a quest against evil—an evil unlike anything anyone has ever seen under this sun. They didn’t know it, but their sacrifices allowed our forefathers—and us—to maintain our fragile ownership of this world.
This novel, from one of our most exciting young writers, is a powerful exploration of the limits of parenthood and marriage—and of what happens when a marriage’s success is measured solely by the children it produces, or else the sorrow that marks their absence.
