A secret room. A secret stash. A secret hope.
Nick likes secrets and he’s good at figuring out puzzles. He’s sure he’ll find a treasure soon, so Grandfather’s inn can stay open, and . . . maybe he and his family could live there too.

He discovers a box with historic old Notes and follows its clues to the cipher-symbols on an ancient sampler. He meets a wonderful coonhound who might become his pal. So far, so good! All he has to do now is explore those ruins in the woods with his new friend, Beckly—and dig out the treasure. But things get scary when the clues lead nowhere, and Mom can’t get well, and someone sets fire to a guest cabin.

Wait! What about the verse he read in one of the Notes: “What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.” Trust God? How does that work, anyway? Maybe he’d better find out.

Only two seasons matter in Coho Bay, Alaska – cruise ship and winter. Caribou King, owner of The Broken Antler Gallery, is hip-deep in tourists when her old college pal Taylor shows up asking for refuge, saying she has no place else to go. Cara is cautious; Taylor was the wife of one of Alaska’s most renowned artists––Jonathan Snow, who was mauled to death by a bear the previous year. Why would his widow want to return to the location of her tragic loss? Something about Taylor’s story just doesn’t ring true.
Of course, she may not be the only liar in town. Taylor’s former father-in-law accuses her of killing his son in front of a diner full of people, except he may have had a stronger motive. A handsome boat captain seems to fancy both Cara and Taylor but he can’t make up his mind between them ––or between lying and telling the truth. The local constable mistrusts everyone, but may have a reason to be mistrusted himself. Will Cara help her old friend Taylor, or will doing so get her into a heap of trouble? When a headless body is discovered in the bay, Cara wonders just who she can trust in this tiny town.

What does it take to be a hero? Strength? Magic? Or just plain dumb luck?
Glolindir thought he had it all figured out until he came face-to-face with his first monster. It might have been the end for the young elven wizard if not for:

Lloyd, the spiritblade as talented as he is reckless.
Seth, the mysterious halfling whose knives are nearly as sharp as his tongue.
Aksel, the stoic gnome whose very touch can heal.

Unfortunately, that was just the beginning of their troubles. The little town of Ravenford is in desperate need of help. Before Glo and his friends know it, they are up to their necks in monsters and worse.

It all comes to a disastrous head when they confront an eerie presence in the ruins outside of town. What they discover there hints to a darker force behind it all: a force that has not been seen since the time of the dread Thrall Wars.

Enter a world of magic and adventure in this witty tale of heroes in the making. Action. Intrigue. Humor. Perfect for fans of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Dungeons & Dragons.

“The characters are exceptionally well developed and the battle scenes are entertaining and polished. What I loved most is that this is a series I can read with my young niece, who loves tales in the spirit of Dungeons and Dragons and The Lord of the Rings.” – Readers’ Favorite Book Review ★★★★★

“Like Lord of the Rings, there’s plenty of action scenes and humorous dialogue. If you love classic fantasy with a great cast of characters, you’ve got to read this book.”- N. N.Light’s Book Heaven ★★★★★

Sword and Sorcery doesn’t get any better than this.” – Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★
