A journey home…
New challenges to face…
An ultimate decision to be made…
Kara Howard faces her greatest fear when she returns to Earth. She is now the purple faced alien who is designated to represent her new world. All her work to reunite families will soon meet its final test.
No longer able to breathe her home planet’s air, her future must be made galaxies away. Her life is further complicated when the mission is jeopardized by betrayal. Once again, Kara must choose sides in the ambiguous allegiances between families.
She walks a tightrope of her own making between the two men in her life. But her ability to make a final decision is compromised by new challenges aboard the ship. The girl who liked to disappear into the shadows continues to standout, making her a target.
Kara Howard’s arrival on Zaratan is shadowed by Joffray violence. With the planet under siege, her loyalties to her new home will be tested. If the terrorists were not enough of a challenge to her allegiance to her guardian – her discovery of a new faction further complicates the situation.
The Pure Bloods have claimed Kara as one of their own. They are determined to end the practice of bringing children from other worlds to Zaratan. If Kara’s life wasn’t complicated enough, her feelings for Matt Sparks is tested with her growing attraction for Jim, an alien boy she met on the journey from Earth.
Kara must make a life-changing decision when the Joffray offer her an opportunity to be reunited with her family. Will she take it? If she does, how can she be sure it isn’t a deception.
Prudence ‘Prue’ Hardt never knew who her father was, only that he was from Magic, New Mexico, a town she hasn’t seen in twenty years. Fearful of the power that she might have inherited from any number of mystical beings that live there, Pru knows she has no choice but to track down her paternal DNA before it is too late. What she doesn’t expect when she returns home is to be drawn to a mysterious man, or to discover that her life is in danger.
Star Ranger Dreyden has been on one too many missions when he is ordered to a primitive planet to spy on a small town with unusual residents. His attitude toward his unwanted assignment changes when he spots a beautiful woman – and sees the patterns on her skin. Patterns that can only mean one thing – she is his chosen one. Resentment turns to cold determination when she is threatened, no easy task when she isn’t exactly appreciative of his efforts.
Prue and Dreyden must work together as Prue searches for her father and struggles with her new powers. Dreyden knows that it will take a touch of prudence to convince Prue to trust him. Will he be able to protect her from the dangers that threaten their future while she learns to control the power she wields?
I sat down recently with S.E. Smith who wrote the Magic, New Mexico series and who asked me to write a story for her Magic, New Mexico Kindle World series. I love this world and it was interesting to find out more about the world from Susan.
Three isolated towns across the world have been destroyed in a show of force by alien invaders. It is a clear warning of what will occur if their demands are not fulfilled. The fulfillment: Human children between the ages of twelve through fifteen years.
Kara Harper is an unremarkable fourteen-year-old girl who is selected by the aliens. She will be physically and socially orientated during the six months it will take to arrive at the planet Zaratan. The girl who liked the safety of being invisible, cannot help but stand out.
Matt Sparks, the boy next door, is also selected. Kara has had a crush on him for as long as she can remember. He vows to safeguard her. The closer they get to their destination, the more difficult it becomes to live up to his promise.
Kara is unsure if she has the strength to withstand the trials and physical changes she is forced to go through. In a new life, Kara will be torn. Will she be drawn in by an alien boy who has shown interest in her or by the powerful patriarch who sees her as the future of his race?
