The year is 1722 – electricity dances across the midnight sky hovering over a majestic tall ship deep within the Caribbean. The crew watches in terror as their Captain is brought back to life by a Celtic witch. Impending doom settles in the hearts of these salty seafarers as they glance at the sea and midnight sky. Sure enough, strange happenings follow their ship each night as clues are left about whom the Silver Moon Omen is intended for. Only one understands the apocalyptic sign, the same Celtic healer who brought their Captain back to life. Kathryn must gather clues from the ancient Celtic mystics, including a deadly voodoo priest from the Island of Tobago. Captain Phillips and his crew sail from Barbados north, plundering the high seas of the Spanish Main encountering the infamous Calico Jack and his cutthroats. Beset with an unexpected visitor and a malicious turn of events, the pirate Captains part ways into unknown territory leading to a certain demise for Captain Phillips. Is this the end of Kathryn and her Captain? Only the Silver Moon Omen knows for certain.

Seventeen-year-old Emily Adams unintentionally unleashed a shadow god’s dark energy power into the world and started an Apocalypse. But Emily is also the only one that can end the dark god’s reign. Though the powerful faerie magic of the golden torc is still coiled around her arm, self-doubt threatens to undo her. Emily wants nothing more than to feel the soft kiss of her one true love, but he won’t even speak to her. Her first crush is still quite dead and her best friend remains a prisoner in the dark god’s house of nightmares. A growing legion of black-eyed shadow people, devoid of conscience, roam the streets. Emily needs help now more than ever, but redemption seems far off indeed as she faces the expanding darkness alone. Emily will need an army of her own if she is to save the world from being taken over by pure evil. But will a small band of Lucent geeks and freaks be enough to send the dark god packing? Amidst chaos and ruin, will love blossom in Emily’s Heart?
