Book 1: The Infant Prince

Bullied middleschooler Jack Grayson has always felt like an outsider, as though the doesn't really belong in this world.

Turns out, he's right. He's actually from a magical otherworld called the Now.

Eleven years ago, he was hidden in this ordinary world, switched with a human baby to protect him from the fairling sourceweaver who killed his parents.

And now, he is told, he must return to the land of his borth to save the Now from a living abomination that, even now, oozes its way across the realm, corrupting the land and enslaving its people.


Book 2: The Amphibian Portal

Jack, TIja'l, and Orange continue their quest for the portal that will transport them to the Now. But guardians galore await. The servants of Obsidia'nar, the korvidae, have amassed an army of enslaved crows, and they guard the entrance with mniacal zeal. Is is only through craftiness, desperation, and an accidental bit of ancestral magic that our trio is able to open the portal and escape to the Now.

But traps and temptations await in the space between worlds. And even if they make it to the Now, they don't know where they will emerge or how they will confront an enemy whose growing power seems insurmountable.

The answer may lie in a magical gift from a decidedly strange stranger with dark secrets and a connection to the ancient prophecy.


Book 3: Revolution in Anjhelius

The third installment of the epic Return to Now series plunges to the unexplored depths of the sea, to the troubled city of Anjhelius, weaving a tale of heroism, sacrifice, and the power of story.

The waters of the deep are not calm. The manta clan trambles on the verge of violent rebellion. And Nuala, leader of the rebels, has plans for the Prince.

Seeking only a way to the mainland of the Now, Jack and Tija'l become embroiled in her treasonous plot, one that promises to save her people from opression and tear her family apart.

"Who says you're supposed to be the hero, Jack?" Nuala asked, surprised. "You are part of this story, certainly. But a victory will require many heroes."
