A Gathering Tempest
Fourteen-year-old Alexander has a secret. Several, in fact. He’s in love with Jade Cleopola. He covers up for his violent, drug-addicted father. And he often goes hungry. His friends at school wouldn’t understand—they’re high-class mer like Jade. But Alexander has bigger problems than the latest gossip and the parties his friends live for. When his father’s irresponsible choices leave Alexander facing a blade-wielding debt collector, Alexander discovers himself trapped in a tangled, ever-tightening net. He must find a way to survive in unfriendly currents.
The imp Federico has gone missing, and only Jade and Davril can get him back. They have to hurry, though. The evil witch Angela has kidnapped the little rascal for her own purposes, and whatever those are, they can’t be good. She wants to destroy the Fae and bring the Shadow to our world.
