Willow Haywood has always been trapped between the worlds of the Light and the Dark. Her waking hours are plagued by her ability to feel the emotions of those around her. No matter how inward she draws, she cannot shut out the feelings of others. Sometimes she will see images – echoes of other people and places – that she can enter to influence the emotions of people she has never met.
By night, Willow experiences her only escape from this terrible insight – entering into the world of dreams. Most of these dreams are shared in blissful silence with a stunning blue-eyed boy. But every new moon she lives through something much darker: a horrific nightmare shared by another mysterious boy who is always shrouded by shadows.
One night, this shadowy figure invades her dreams outside of his appointed time. In this new nightmare, Willow is marked; a mark which follows her into the waking world and sets her on a momentous path through light and darkness, through fragmented myth and half-truths, through past lives and disturbing family secrets, all in the face of the ever-dominant Zodiac. What she finds will endanger the lives of those closest to her and will force her to make a decision that will change her world forever.
To make things even more interesting, her worst enemy, Toby Thompson, has also been selected. He is a werewolf.
But before Alice can even start at the Nocturnal Academy she must come to terms with her new identity, defeat Tobys old bully friends who have discovered the truth about her, and expose a local coven that wants to raise the Demon-Lord Vladrakov.

There are no minor gods.
Lilah Jones is officially thirteen. Unfortunately, the day comes with a few twists she didn’t expect. For example, her hair turned into a living rainbow and she was gifted with a golden necklace that randomly goes from being room temperature to as hot a supernova. On top of that, she has a dream that she remembers line by the line when she wakes up.
Seeking answers, Lilah meets two boys, named Cole and Adrian, who gladly clear things up. Remember the Greek myths you assumed were fiction? The old gods that you assumed were just someone’s imagination? You were wrong. They’ve been with us the whole time, fighting battles we didn’t even know existed, and they’ve returned. The Olympians are reuniting, preparing to fight the most dangerous battle they’ve ever faced.
The Father of Monsters is rising.

In the process, they have a dark awakening when their typically predictable world collides with the complexities of the magical world. The twins face unimaginable dangers, thrusting them into an unexpected choice: to live as they always have or to learn the truth about their past and enter a world that is equally thrilling and terrifying.
More importantly, however, is whether they even have a choice, or will fate not only force this new magical reality upon them, but require them to sacrifice everyone they love in doing so?
