Book 2: Secrets & Lies (JUNE 2022)
One year has passed since The Isle came to reside above Castle, Washington. The remnants of Hollowshine have been searching and preparing for the dark wizard faction to strike. Little do they realize the enemy has always been one step ahead…
Hanna has found her footing in life. After graduating college she’s found a job she loves and her relationship with Caspian is at an all-time high. Everything has finally fallen into place; except she can’t shake the feeling something isn’t right. Deep in her soul she can feel a change coming. Hanna questions Caspian as cracks in his backstory begin to show. Has the trust she’s put in him been misplaced? What is he hiding? Worst of all, what has her family been hiding?
Caspian finally has it all. He continues to search for the dark wizards while sparing enough time to be with Hanna. Having the best of both worlds is easier than he expected… until tragedy strikes. Thrown back into the life he almost escaped, Caspian is forced to decide between his duty and his new life on the surface.
