"A captivating book with a superb mix of fantasy, romance, mystery, emotion, and drama... I really loved the fantasy elements. But the book isn't all fantasy or mystery; there's a great deal of emotion as well.... a fun romance to watch unfold." - Aeicha, Word Spelunking review
PYXIS is a fresh take on contemporary fantasy, teen romance, and young adult paranormal. The PYXIS SERIES, a unique new teen series, weaves together a world of dreams, magic, love, and danger.
Corinne lives an average teenage life working at her dad's cafe, hanging out with her best friend, and trying to forget a falling-out with her almost-boyfriend Mason. Then she discovers she and Mason are haunted by the same dreams of a dark force that consumes everything in its path. Pursued by shadowy figures and a dangerous woman with secrets from the past, Corinne must find out who her grandmother really was. In her quest to unravel her family's history, she learns she is destined to protect this world--and the dark world of her dreams. She races to find the answers she seeks before her nightmares break free.
