The Anomalous Activity Department has plans to finally conquer Neverland by bringing the final battle to the vulnerable island. The children will have to rally fairies, mermaids, and allies from other magical realms to stand a chance against the shadow-casting army of grown-ups heading for them.
The black-coat soldiers are far from their only problem. Lasiandra is missing. No one has seen her since Gwen left her at the lakeside with Jay, and the mermaids searching have found only grave omens in the stars. With the island on the cusp of a war that threatens to strip the land of its magic, the last thing Peter and Gwen need is the ancient flagship that appears on their horizon, sailing pirates straight for their shores.
When the battle begins amid old and new enemies, Gwen's maturity will be a double-edged sword. She will either grow stronger or grow up... maybe both.
About the Author
Audrey Greathouse is an active member of the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators and seven-time winner of the National Novel Writing Month challenge. Her BA in English Language and Literature comes from Southern New Hampshire University, where she completed her honors thesis on Victorian children's literature.
In 2013 she sold her first young adult science-fiction novella, Dr. Derosa's Resurrection, to Mad Scientist Journal for serial publication. She currently writes for Telepathic/TLDR, a silicon valley literary venture which will be released in the autumn of 2015.
Initially from Seattle, she is enjoying the footloose lifestyle her freelance fiction writing affords her. Audrey is a classically trained pianist and unconventionally trained circus artist, specializing in fire eating and aerial silks. Her long-term goals as an author are to make a modest living writing novels and to build a following that will dress up and participate in her avant-garde art projects. She hopes someday she will be able to tour with other musicians and circus performers, building a traveling cabaret around her stories. Her short-term goals include steadily building her readership and traditionally publishing her YA fantasy series, The Neverland Wars.
