    High school is rarely easy, especially for a tall, somewhat gangly Native American girl. Add a sprinkle of shyness, a dash of athletic prowess, an above-average IQ, and some bizarre history that places in the guardianship of her aunt. Then normal high school life is only an illusion.Kai Tiva faces an uphill struggle until she runs into Riley Beth James, the extroverted class cutie, at the principal’s office. Riley shows up for a newspaper interview, while Kai is summoned for punching out a classmate. Riley is the attractive girl-next-door-type whom everyone likes. Though a fairly good student, an emerging choral star, and wildly popular, she knows she’ll never live up to her older sister. She makes up for it with bravery, kindness, and a brash can-do attitude.Their odd matchup is strengthened by curiosity, compassion, humor, and all the drama of typical teenage life. But their experiences go beyond the normal teen angst; theirs is compounded by a curious attraction to each other, and an emerging, insidious danger related to mysterious death of Kai’s father.Their emerging friendship is tested as they navigate this risky challenge. But the powerful bond forged between them has existed through past lives. The outcome this time will affect the next generation of Kai’s people.

  • Javen: Legacy of the Seers

    R. Barrett

    language (, Dec. 25, 2016)
    Malcasters now rule Cartenia, through slavery, bloodshed and their ‘curse’. Occasionally, small warrior bands rise against them, letting the Malcasters know they are opposed. But they’re outnumbered. It's a hopeless situation, and they know it; for in Cartenia justice is a commodity and life, half-price.The Trealingers, Illencers and Seers all have such bands; though the Seers are unique because of their abilities, their secrets, and the fact that at one time they controlled Cartenia. Much diminished due to relentless Malcaster violence, the Seers mostly hide in their last remaining fortress Some, however, scattered among the townships, live undercover and do what they can.To say the Malcasters seek the Seer's stronghold is obvious; that they've spent years looking is a given. But when they finally track down an old woman Seer and her grandson, Javen, they keenly anticipate the culmination of their search and its inevitable conclusion -- the Seer's hidden fortress. But timing is everything, and they're just a little late. Now, the tracker seeks Javen, and he's not the only one on the boy's trail.

  • Javen: Legacy of the Curse

    R. Barrett

    language (, Aug. 20, 2017)
    It's fall and rebellion's in the air. The Overlord is dead. The remnants of his household fight for his throne. Upon the Overlord's miraculous return, factions form, lines are drawn; war is inevitable. Malcaster leadership's in flux, but the hunt continues for the boy, Javen. He and a friend are eventually seized, and Javen is faced with an impossible choice -- betray Empyra or save his friend.War looms as the Overlord's household turns on itself. Cartenia groans and writhes under the Malcaster's control and there is no relief to be had. Battle-worthy boys and men are placed under the curse in readiness for the conflict. Towns are decimated, property stolen, families ripped apart, the price for someone else's greed. Empyra is a long way from Javen's cottage, and not just geographically. Before long Javen discovers that the Seers are a group with many secrets; some involving him -- and some secrets are better undisturbed. Javen faces new challenges: gossipers, humiliation, betrayal and traitorous secrets. But they are all stripped away when he is faced with the ultimate decision. He must set aside all that he thinks important, to save that which is precious.
