“A girl with a deadly lung disease…
A boy with a tragic past…
A bargain that brings life, but may cost more than anyone can imagine…”
Written by Matt Mikalatos, The Crescent Stone: Sunlit Lands Book One, is a story about a young girl with a terminal lung disease and a boy struggling with guilt. Both want better things, to make their ailments disappear, and one day a stranger from a magical, distant land gives them a way out. But is it worth it?
This is the first book in a series, which I know will make readers anticipate book two! Check out Matt Mikalatos’ other young adult books on his website.
A Touch of Gold
Annie Sullivan weaves a captivating tale based on an old Greek myth. Princess Kora lived a wonderful life, until she was afflicted with a curse caused by her father, King Midas.

She and her newly found love are thrown into a adventure to retrieve her father’s golden treasure, which only she can find because of her “curse”. Will Kora find the gold in time? And will she find a lasting love?
