Feathered Quill says: “Captivating is an understatement. This series has rightfully carved its niche beside some of the most popular YA’s written. I see an “Ohr” theme park in our future. Bravo!”

Children of the Volcano is filled with mystery and a beguilingly rich magic system, a dark allure that keeps the narrative tense, and a masterly example of the elements of epic fantasy.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Jose Cornelio (5 STARS)

Feathered Quill says: “This book is absolutely mesmerizing and just goes to show that, even when the author has already written two books in a series, the next book can truly be even better. All I can say is I can’t wait to see book 4 and, if we are all very lucky, a motion picture that may be the beginning of the best movie series ever!”

“One of the best young adult epic fantasy series of the decade…” ~ Rabia Tanveer, Readers’ Favorite Books Reviews (5 STARS)

The world’s future lies within Kole, but what will salvation cost him?

War has begun. Only the united front of six gods can fell Aterus’ corruption. Yet the only one who can bring the gods together and save Ohr is missing.

When Kole leaves his world behind in search of a hidden god who can save Ohr, he faces floating islands, crumbling lands, and distorted gravity. With the portal home set to reopen in mere hours, Kole must navigate this strange landscape, release the god, and find his way back before the war is lost.

After dark secrets of his past come to light—what he truly is and will become—will Kole want to return? Or will he leave Ohr to its fate?
