Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy and keep hold of a love she never expected to find in Compulsion.
In Evil Fairies Love Hair, Ali and her middle school classmates are raising a flock of fairies to grant them wishes – but raising fairies is harder than it sounds! Mistakes are made, spells go awry, and soon Ali is up against hundreds of two-inch tall imps with big plans.
At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers.
