Smart Books for Smart Kids (Loving Birds Helps Too) – For Kids 3-8 Years Old.
 
Ruby, a young phoenix, has always been captivated by the people living in nearby cities. Unfortunately, ancient law states that phoenixes and people must remain separate in order to maintain the world’s magical balance.
 
When a little boy needs rescuing, however, Ruby decides saving a life is more important than upholding an outdated superstition. The Phoenix Council says that if Ruby grants her new friend his heart’s true wish that he will forget their encounter and order will be restored, but what about Ruby’s heart? Is she ready to lose the best friend she’s ever had?
 
Join Ruby in her tale of magic, friendship, and adventure.

Nearly a century before Frendyl Krune found the Blood of the Sun, his favorite uncle, Melroc, was ordered by King Gretryc to discover some way to trap the Pretender king, Marac Aneys. The discovery of a spell guarded by its legendary keeper would lock the Pretender in an everlasting slumber. Now it’s up to Melroc and his brothers to find the spell and stop Marac—or the Amüli Kingdom will fall.

Amid the chaos left in the wake of the half-blood plague, Nicholas’s only son was born Unsouled, and he’ll do anything to change fate’s design.
 
His research has revealed a potential way to resurrect an Unsouled infant, but the cost is high. The decision he makes could lead the people into a new golden age, where the Unsouled curse is but an old, frail nightmare—or cast the die for a greater terror to seize the Amüli Republic.

No one knows who Cassia is, but her beauty and talents as an actress and dancer captivate the local scene. Tanya is mesmerized, and they quickly form a relationship. A close friend warns Tanya about Cassia, but she brushes him off.

And the secrets her lover is hiding are deeper and more damaging than Tanya could imagine.
