The Xandi Series
The Amber Key: Book One of the Xandi
When a dangerous, hooded figure threatens someone with certain death, the average, sane person does what they ask. But Molly McClain isn’t the average, sane person.
Deep below the earth, on a hidden island, runs a maze of tunnels where something deadly waits, its secrets hidden away for generations. Secrets the inhumanly-powerful Xandi have sworn to protect. Secrets Molly and her friends are determined to uncover.
An explosion had led Molly and her family to this small island in the Pacific Ocean. The local detective ruled it an accident, but Molly knows better. Something sinister is at play. Something is happening in the dark tunnels. Molly will discover the truth, whatever the cost.
When they find the professor’s ancient journal, their perilous quest begins.
They visit an “invisible” village, get trapped in an underwater cave, and almost freeze to death in the heart of a volcano. Terrible traps lurk around every corner. Challenging puzzles stand in their way. They must collect all the segments of the amber key if they are to reach the cavern laboratory before their faceless enemy. Or before Molly’s hooded figure follows through with his threat.
If they fail, the whole world could fall.
The Forest of Faces: Book Two
Jake and Archie have finally earned enough trust to be allowed to guard Professor Xandiver’s secret laboratory all by themselves. It’s a great honor, an extraordinary privilege. Who would’ve guessed it’d be so boring. Until…
A dark figure mysteriously appears in the middle of the cavern and steals a small device from a nearby desk. Then, just as quickly as he appeared, the thief suddenly vanishes into thin air.
To set things right, Molly, Jake and their friends must travel through one of the mysterious doors in the generator room to a strange, foreboding land. There they face giant panthers, raging whirlpools, and mythical creatures lurking outside an underwater maze.
Molly and the others search for the thief while struggling to evade the deadly Xandi guarding that land. Meanwhile, Archie has been captured by the enemy and faces excruciating torture if he doesn't reveal the secrets of their power.
Numerous questions arise. Who really turned the people in the Forest of Faces into trees? What lies in the bunker that is rumored to hold the most powerful weapon ever known? Are the Xandi that live there truly the villains the Gardener claims, or is the Gardener the one who can’t be trusted?
Molly and her friends must stop the evil that threatens to rise. They just have to figure out who the evil ones are first. The wrong choice could mean the end of the world.
