Inspired by the legend of Tristan and Eseult, BRIGHT RAVEN SKIES (releases 8/25) is the third book in a lush fantasy series about warring countries, family secrets, and star-crossed lovers.
Branwen has given herself over to the darkest parts of her magic in order to protect her kingdom, but in doing so, she may have lost herself—and the two people she loves most. Tristan and Eseult are missing. As Branwen searches for them, she must also hide the truth of her terrible actions from the night they disappeared. But there are those who don’t want the Queen and her champion to be found; enemies who plot to bring a new reign into power and destroy the fragile peace Branwen has sacrificed everything to secure. Bright Raven Skies is the thrilling conclusion to the lush and soaring romantic fantasy trilogy.

Manuela Azul has been crammed into an existence that feels too small for her. As an undocumented immigrant who's on the run from her father's Argentine crime-family, Manu is confined to a small apartment and a small life in Miami, Florida.Until Manu's protective bubble is shattered. Her surrogate grandmother is attacked, lifelong lies are exposed, and her mother is arrested by ICE. Without a home, without answers, and finally without shackles, Manu investigates the only clue she has about her past—a mysterious "Z" emblem—which leads her to a secret world buried within our own. A world connected to her dead father and his criminal past. A world straight out of Argentine folklore, where the seventh consecutive daughter is born a bruja and the seventh consecutive son is a lobizón, a werewolf. A world where her unusual eyes allow her to belong. As Manu uncovers her own story and traces her real heritage all the way back to a cursed city in Argentina, she learns it's not just her U.S. residency that's illegal. . . . it’s her entire existence.
