Stealing Magic, Book 1 in the Legacy of Androva Series

Jax is a fourteen-year-old magic-taker from Androva. He's also a rule breaker. He should not have opened a portal to our world in daylight, no matter how fed up he was with the rules, or how interested he was in Shannon.

Shannon considers herself to be ordinary. She loves escaping into fantasy books, but she never actually believed in magic. Not until the day she opens her eyes to find herself surrounded by it. And that boy, the one with the green eyes, who winks at her before he disappears into thin air. Who is he? Where does he come from?

When Shannon first touches the silver force field created by Jax, a treaty is broken, giving an ancient enemy the chance to regain his power. The two teenagers don't have much time to figure out what is going on, and they're going to need all of their combined magical ability to stand a chance of surviving.

The next ten days will be the most exciting and terrifying of their lives (so far!).

But how does she know whom she can trust? If she gets it wrong, she might end up paying with her life...

Jax and Shannon are back, and things are getting complicated!

Seeking Magic, Book 3 in the Legacy of Androva Series

How far would you go to find an explanation if you were still the only magician in the entire world, and no-one knew why? You could try reading some ancient history books. That’s pretty harmless, at least to start off with.

Or you could experiment with some brand new spells. That’s a bit more risky, but still nothing you can’t handle.

Or maybe you could go back in time two thousand years to question the one magician who might have the answer? That’s dangerous by anyone’s standards. You might get stuck there. You might die there. Or you might discover that you never become a magician at all…
Jax and Shannon return in another exciting adventure, where nothing is as it seems, and the past could be rewritten in a heartbeat.

Controlling Magic, Book 4 in the Legacy of Androva Series

Far away, on a world of rock and water, live a brother and sister. They have a special talent. So special that, when applied correctly, it enables them to live forever. Androva hasn't visited this world since before the Treaty. It was so horrified by what it found there, it closed the portals and never went back. 

Right now on Androva, everyone is trying to come up with the best Entertainment Spell for the Spring Festival. And there is also an important question to answer. Just how many magicians should Terra be allowed to have anyway? No-one realises that there is a deadly enemy lurking in the background. An enemy so devious that it can get your own force field to work against you.

Jax has been saying he wants to go to Imbera since the end of Seeking Magic. He doesn't realise that Imbera is actually coming for him. Be careful what you wish for...

Callax is fifteen, and he already knows he will never grow old. Twelve years after leaving the childstation he will be summoned to the Gathering, where life essences are taken by a deadly, irresistible spell.

But in protecting his younger brother Benedar, he was noticed by the Breaker, the evil magician in charge of the Gathering.

Surviving Magic, Book 6 in the Legacy of Androva Series

My name is Galen and I never wanted to know the future. Life as an underage magician on Androva was already complicated. Using illegal spells on professors, opening portals to strange new worlds, and trying to avoid being matched with the wrong girl.

Then I found the right girl and everything changed. I made some choices I can’t take back. I opened a doorway in time and now I know that a great evil is coming. I’m nearly seventeen and I’m a pretty good magician, but that won’t be nearly enough. No one on Androva will believe me – the runaway who chose love instead of duty. If I get this wrong, there’s a lot more than my own life at risk…

Engraved in Magic, Book 2 in the Beyond Androva Series

An ancient criminal. A deadly trade.

Every life has a price.

Art's fourth day as a magician isn't going very well. Returning to Xytovia to face the consequences of his actions was always going to be a challenge. But getting lost in an enchanted wood and accidentally opening a Dimension Cell creates a complication he and Serena didn't expect.

Inside the cell is a seventeen-year-old prisoner who says he's from a different Xytovia. A Xytovia before the war and before mage-sickness. He also makes an extraordinary claim about Art's magic. One that will change Art's life forever if it's true.

The subsequent upheaval catches the attention of a new enemy whose interest in Art's magic goes far beyond curiosity. While Art and Serena are distracted by their attempts to abolish Xytovia's Bonding Spell, they don't realise the danger. They're up against a unique and deadly skill set, and time is running out...

His rescuers, Art and Serena, are trying to put things right, but their actions are not welcomed by everyone. At first, Kellan's only allegiance is to himself. He's not interested in making friends, much less risking his life for them. Then he stumbles across a cry for help from the past, and he's drawn into a conspiracy that quickly becomes very personal and very life threatening. 

Kellan thoughts his problems were over when he was released from the Dimension Cell. It turns out they were only beginning...

Luca has a problem his magic can’t solve. The boy he’s loved since they fought side-by-side as gladiators in Ancient Rome is about to die for the last time. Luca’s only chance to prevent it is to make a deal with the Spell Tracker, who demands Luca’s own life as collateral.

Devin is a Light Mage on the run. When his boyfriend is accused of murder and sentenced to death, Devin manages to rescue him just in time. The two boys escape the magical dimensions for Tudor England, hoping to remain anonymous while they figure out what’s going on.

But witchcraft is a capital offense in the sixteenth century. It’s not the best place for a pair of seventeen-year-old Light Mages to hide, especially when one of them doesn’t know he’s carrying a deadly tracking spell. In order to have any chance of clearing their names, they’ll have to accept help from some unlikely sources and push the limits of their combined magical abilities.

The alleged murder could change things forever. Light Mages are the trusted protectors of the earthbound dimension. Discrediting them could turn magical society upside down. The stakes are high, and the potential prize is more than enough to turn any magician’s head.
