A Stranger Magic (Book 1):
Sam Dalcome thinks he is so completely average that no one ever notices him. Until he discovers a mysterious stranger outside his home. Bewildered, he tries to uncover the stranger’s intentions. But Sam is sidetracked when he and his friend Travis discover a secret passageway deep in the town’s quarry that leads to a hidden cavern. What they uncover next will not only change their lives forever, but will uncover the first clue to a deadly Dalcome family secret. Sam finds himself drawn into a world of mystery and magic he never knew existed, which brings him closer to a destiny he never knew was possible.
Revenge of the Viper (Book 2):
The Great War of Haven ended thirteen years ago but Alisa Dalcome is about to discover that the war did not end for her. Placed on Earth as a sleeper agent for the Majesty of Haven, Alisa had one objective—protect the portal keys at all costs. In the wrong hands the magical keys could jeopardize the safety of everyone on Haven. But Alisa’s relocation was more than just Majesty business; it was also a chance for her to escape her enemies, enemies that still wanted her dead. Alisa wasn’t thinking about herself when she left Haven, she was thinking about her children Sam and Sarah. The Great War had already taken her husband Rylan; she would be damned if she would let it take her children too. But what Alisa didn’t count on was her inquisitive son Sam and his friend Travis. Sam’s world has turned upside down after discovering magic is real. After barely escaping the caves Sam begins to piece together the past day’s events when he stumbles onto his mother’s secret past. With the clues mounting, Sam must dig deeper to uncover the truth that could change his life forever.
But Sam doesn’t realize that his mother’s past has already caught up with them. Hidden within the shadows nearby is Haven’s most malevolent predator—the Viper. A hunter forged from the blackest of magic, it watches, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Can Sam uncover the truth in time or will his mother’s past collide with the present placing them all in grave danger?
My Review of book 1 :
The premise of the book is one of magic and mystery based in a small town. This book draws you in and captures your attention. The ease of reading it and how you get to know Sam and Sarah and their characters are developed is so well that you really feel you get to know them. I enjoy this fantasy/fiction genre and really wanted to get to know Sam, Travis and Sarah and the mysteries that they uncover.
The premise of the book is about a single mother raising her two teenage children in a small little town. Sam and his older sister Sarah constantly fight like siblings usually do. When weird things start happening for both children, they are scared to tell anyone for fear of not being believed. Whenever Sarah gets really angry strange things begin to happen and around the same time Sam notices a stranger larking in the dark near a tree across the street. When Sam and his best friend Travis take their monthly trip to the caves they discover a new tunnel and they couldn’t not be prepared for what happened inside the caves that day.
It really drew me in. I had to know what was going on with Sam and Sarah and who the stranger was outside Sam’s window. I was trying to guess what was going on and how it all fit together. Once I started seeing it fit together I wanted more! When I came to the end I wanted more! I need book 2! What is going to happen next?
My Review of book 2:
This was my first tome reading this author my sister had told me about his first book and I was going to read it and never did . Now having the chance to read both books I am happy I did . I love this author and I cant wait for the next book to come out.
Sam Dacomes world as he knows it will be turned inside out, when he learns that what he thought about magic is actually true. Sam and his best friend Travis barely escape the caves and while cleaning out the garage Sam comes across his moms hidden box of her past. In the box he finds a ring, letter and 11 pieces of onyx and he starts to put the pieces of the past and today’s events together.
He learns pieces of his moms past which she has had to keep hidden in offer to protect her children , after her husband was killed and the truth will change his life forever. Sam doesn’t realize that digging around her past has put them in contact with the danger shes tried hard to keep them from, and the past is onto them now.
The viper is made from the blackest of magic and is now watching and waiting for his chance to attack them, things as the family and Travis are about to turn out so different now. His moms past outs them in danger and three lives will be changed forever.
