A cryptic prophecy. A dangerous quest. An explosive family secret. And a crow with a white feather who is more than he appears…

Mortal peril is twelve-year-old Ty Baxter’s new normal when he teams up with the weird girl from school to help an injured bird and suddenly finds himself trapped in a strange, magical world.

Now the target of a brutal tyrant with unfathomable power, Ty grapples with a life-altering revelation about his past and the implications of an ancient prophecy. As he struggles to control his own emerging magical Talent, Ty embroils himself in a desperate gamble to help his new friends save their missing family before the emperor uses his dark sorcery to transform them into birds, enslaving them forever as soldiers in his enchanted avian army.

And if he survives all of that, he’s probably still going to get grounded—if he ever finds a way to get back home.

“Vivid in its imagination, well-developed in its characters, and filled with satisfyingly complex twists and turns.” Midwest Book Review

Two children touched by prophecy. A dark sorcerer out for revenge. And a mystical artifact that might have all the answersif it exists at all.

Plagued by nightmares after his encounter with the evil Emperor Blackthorn and tormented by the revelations about his mother’s death, Ty has become obsessed with his magical training. When he learns of a mystical object with the power to show him whether he really is the one destined to end the dark sorcerer’s reign, he is determined to track it down—no matter the cost.

But when his quest takes a shocking turn, will Ty still find the answers he needs, or will his relentless hunt for the truth only jeopardize both the worlds—and all of his friends?

Now hunted through lethal surroundings by the emperor himself, Ty finds himself in the biggest fight of his life, determined to finally put an end to the dark sorcerer’s reign of terror.

But when everything goes terribly wrong, will the people he cares about most be the ones to pay the price?
