Motley Education By S.A. Larsen

Motley Education
S.A. Larsen


Ebony Charmed has never seen a fire giant. She’s never chatted with ginormous ravens, been friends with a light elf, or held a relic vital to the underworld in her hand. Her less-than-average spirit tracking genes are enough excitement for her, but cause her to be the bane of sixth grade at Motley Junior High: School for the Psychically and Celestially Gifted. Her parents argue so much about her inabilities that her dad moves out of the house. And she would never survive without her best friend, Fleishman, even though he’s scared of his own shadow and insists on bringing his slimy, legless lizard everywhere they go.

That’s all about to change when Ebony receives a stick to transform for her Deadly Creatures & Relics project. If she does well, her success might reunite her parents. And with Fleishman’s help she’s sure to win. But strange things begin to happen. Mystical doors appear and a crusty rock giant steals the glowing stick. Even worse, a girl from school vanishes and Hela, Queen of the Underworld, reveals the stick’s true identity—named Gillingr, it’s used to guide spirits to their next destination. Ebony realizes there’s more at stake than simply getting her parents back together.

The two friends must brave the nine doors of Yggdrasil to find Gillingr before spirits are lost, the Well of Urd dries up, and Ebony loses all hope of uniting her family. But a dark elf lies in wait for them and he has other plans … plans that include creating a new world of spirits without them in it.

Membrane by Michele Corriel Available Now!

In the multi-verse people may look familiar, but no one is who they seem.

In a small town in Montana, Sophie lives with her quantum physicist mother, and her equally brilliant, but dangerously obsessed, step-father.

Her father disappeared years ago under mysterious circumstances, but Sophie is still haunted by memories of him that seem so real she swears she feels his presence one night as she drifts off to sleep.

Realizing that somehow her missing father is trying to send her a message, Sophie decides to take a big risk.

With her friend, Eli, Sophie must discover what strange experiment her father did and understand the startling impact it has on her world and another, just across the membrane dividing the multi-verse.
