This is the story of a girl who once burned as bright as midday.
In a world known only as the Fringe, young Anya of the Cave-Dwellers has yet to step foot outside of her underground society. Following the disappearance of her parents, she becomes entangled as a Light Smuggler, stealing light from the cracks in the earth so her people can fight off the Stygian shadows that plague them at night.
Whispers of a strange leader known as the World Shaker echo throughout the Fringe. The hooded vigilante promises the overthrow of a rising kingdom, and when Anya is offered the chance to travel above ground on a dangerous mission, she finds herself at the center of a falling empire, whispered prophecies, and dangerous entities, all surrounding the mysterious World Shaker.
Aided by the boy Jay with mysteries of his own, Anya must rise with the dawn and discover the truth of the World Shaker before darkness falls and the Fringe is cloaked once more. . .
Anya’s hunt for the Light Kingdom has ensnared her in the center of the World Shaker’s reign. Following the disappearance of her companion Jay, the High Prince has revealed his identity and plunged her further into the secrets of the Fringe. Aided by newfound powers, Anya and her new friends Kye and Warren are to seek out a teacher that will unveil the secrets of the Solifeer.
But the High Prince has grown unstable, and the World Shaker’s power threatens the borders of the Blue Light District with every passing day. As Anya’s fire grows inside her, the balance between nations in the Fringe is growing thin.
Pursued by the World Shaker, Anya and her friends must move in a race against time. She will discover that the lands of the Fringe prove a dangerous game to play, shifting the line between reality and fantasy, and that nothing is as it seems. . .
The World Shaker book two Time Keep
Two years have passed since the grueling betrayal of one of their own. The Oracle has been cast from her Time Keep, her powers loosened and her mortality limited.
Following the disappearance of Anya, the Fringe is without a Solifeer. Her absence has carved a path for the resistance to rise. The Alliance is on the move. Alone and unaided, the Seer Kye bands with the Sol Alliance to become a leader within its ranks. As the Sol army grows, the High Prince sits upon his throne, a puppet to the enticing power of the Oracle and oblivious to the mounting power against him.
In the third installment of The World Shaker series, allegiances will be tested as brother rises against brother, a collision of light and dark that will mark the beginning of a new era within the Fringe. The Sol Alliance must resort to desperate measures as they fight without their prophesied hero against the Oracle, who will stop at nothing to regain what she has lost.
As the war with the Oracle rises, all eyes are turning to young Kye and princess Hazel for aid. The Fringe is severed in two, with scattered kingdoms declaring their allegiance to the Oracle and others standing with the disbanded Sol Alliance. Heading this movement is the mysterious coven known as the Sisters of Silver Grace. At their head sits the elusive Ember Digby, who is desperate to pull Kye and his kingdom to her side.
Anya and Jay earnestly pursue the Oracle inside the Otherworld basin. Alone and unaided, they must seek out friendship within the Neverborn people or risk the danger of the acidic Discarded jungles. Rumors of a raging killer called the Emerald Herald threaten their path, and Jay, still recovering from the Oracle’s revealed secrets, hopes to regain Anya’s dwindling trust. As the mystery of the Otherworld deepens, Anya’s intentions are disfigured. The journey to find the Oracle is only the beginning. She will stop at nothing to restore what was taken from her.
In this installment of the World Shaker series, the fight against the Oracle comes to a final, snarling conclusion. World Shaker, Solifeer, and High Prince must cast aside their differences to rise against a common enemy. With limits being tested, a single question rises triumphant, one that will come into play for the very victory of the Fringe—can Anya trust Jay?
