Product Description

This compelling six book collection features over 1,500 pages of unexpected magic, enduring friendship, and relentless determination.

Join Bianca Monroe and her friends as they navigate war and the difficulties of growing up together in this clean, gripping YA fantasy series.

Inside this The Network Series Complete Collection you'll find the following novels:

Mildred’s Resistance:

Mildred Graeme is a witch that knows what it’s like to fail. She loathes small talk, struggles with magic, and grew up wretchedly poor. What’s easy for her best friend Evelyn, a wealthy, powerful socialite, is difficult for Mildred.

The two lifelong friends reunite at Chatham Castle where they fight together for the dream of a better world. Mildred wants to save the Network from political elitism, while Evelyn encourages it.

When Evelyn gains power and threatens to obliterate the Network, Mildred realizes that she must overcome her fear of failure to save the lives of those she loves, even if it means betraying her best friend.    

Miss Mabel’s School for Girls

Letum Wood is a forest of fog and deadfall, home to the quietly famous Miss Mabel’s School for Girls, a place where young witches learn the art of magic.

Sixteen-year-old Bianca Monroe has inherited a deadly curse. Determined to break free before it kills her, she enrolls in the respected school to confront the cunning witch who cast the curse: Miss Mabel.

Bianca finds herself faced with dark magic she didn’t expect, with lessons more dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Will Bianca have the courage to save herself from the curse, or will Miss Mabel’s sinister plan be too powerful?

Antebellum Awakening

Still reeling in the wake of her mother’s death, sixteen-year-old Bianca Monroe is forced to move to Chatham Castle. Not even the sudden appearance of ancient dragons in haunted Letum Wood nor her two best friends can distract her from the strength of her deep, dark rage.

Her grief puts her magical powers into chaos, endangering any witch around her. She has six months left to destroy the curse that will kill her and fulfill her contract with the most cunning enemy of all: her former teacher Miss Mabel.

Bianca must make a choice: learn to control her restless powers, or let the powers control her.

The High Priest’s Daughter

Despite swirling rumors of war, seventeen-year-old Bianca Monroe is living without restraint for the first time. With no curse to hinder her and her enemy, Miss Mabel, imprisoned in an impervious dungeon, she’s finally free.

Nothing lasts forever. The Southern Network attacks, launching Bianca, her beloved father, and everyone she cares for into a war controlled by the clandestine witch Angelina. Chatham City burns, Guardians die, and Bianca soon realizes the only witch who can save the Central Network is the conniving Miss Mabel.

Will setting Miss Mabel free save everyone she loves, or unleash a greater evil on the Central Network and all of Antebellum? Is Bianca strong enough to make the right choice?

War of the Networks

With the Central Network teetering on the brink of destruction, eighteen-year-old Bianca Monroe is determined to defeat Mabel’s powerful Almorran magic by finding the Book of Light.

Then disaster strikes. Mabel kidnaps Bianca, keeping her prisoner in the hot sands of the Western Network, Bianca soon realizes that things are not as they seem. Mabel is more dangerous—and unhinged—than she’s ever been before.

Will Bianca escape the clutches of her greatest enemy in time to find the Book of Light and save her Network? Or will Mabel’s madness consume Antebellum, making it burn in the raging black flames of Almorran magic?

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, Compelling Saga From Start to Finish 14 July 2016
By GS_Jennsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In this Omnibus Collection, the full wonder of The Network Series can be appreciated in one amazing reading indulgence. I'm reposting my reviews for the individual books below, but even beyond that, the whole truly is greater than the sum of its parts.

MILDRED'S RESISTANCE

Mildred is my hero. Mildred’s Resistance is a prequel to the other books in Cross’s Network Series, and in many ways it is a very different book. Mildred Graeme could not be more different than the heroine of those novels, Bianca. And as fantastic a character as Bianca is, Mildred now holds a special place in my heart. Quiet, studious, logical and from the most humble of origins, Mildred nonetheless steps up to become the leader and heroine her world needs when it needs her most.

Cross brings a wide variety of other characters to life in this book as well, most notably Mildred’s childhood friend-turned-adversary, Evelyn. The divergent paths these two women’s lives take demonstrate in a deeply compelling way the importance of the choices we make, of the difference between rising above one’s past and being consumed by it.

Mildred is a worthy heroine, far more so than most. Nothing is handed to her; she must fight, claw and scrape for every inch of success she achieves. By continuing to fight against increasing odds while displaying a level of grit, determination and certainty of purpose few possess, she inspires others to her side, though she never meant to do so. The sacrifices she makes for others—for everyone—were honestly heartbreaking to me. I’ve rarely felt this much empathy for a character, which is a testament to Cross’ ability to breathe life into her characters and her world.

Surrounding Mildred’s personal story is a rich, complex and exciting tale of a society on the brink, of conspiracies, magic, power struggles, resistance and, ultimately, revolution. Themes of the value of hard work, personal and educational freedom, self-worth and perseverance mean it is also an uplifting, inspirational story.

MISS MABEL'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS

The author paints a vivid world where magic is everywhere, but the star of the novel is unquestionably Bianca. Though the story begins, as great stories often do, at the moment the main character's life changes forever, it becomes clear over the course of the novel that she has led a very interesting life long before we meet her.

Bianca is the kind of character young girls should (and need to) look up to. Clever, resourceful and talented, she exudes a quiet strength and resolve through the most difficult of circumstances and simply refuses to give up, even when all seems lost.

I look forward to seeing her face (and hopefully conquer) the even greater challenges which still await her.

*

ANTEBELLUM AWAKENING

A Stunning Tale of Sacrifice, Joy and Finding True Inner (and Outer) Strength. As someone who does not make a habit of reading YA fiction, to me one of the most interesting (and enjoyable) things about Antebellum Awakening is that though it is a young adult novel, it never shies away from serious, difficult topics. The struggle of how to deal with loss, move forward and grow stronger, the reality of facing evil in the world, the heavy weight of responsibility and the nature of sacrifice—all these themes run like intertwining rivers through the book. The author handles them all with a respectful, understated touch, which has the inverse effect of magnifying their emotional impact.

This is not to say that Antebellum Awakening is a depressing book. There are dark moments, yes, but there are also moments of levity, humor, beauty and, most importantly, extreme badassery :). The struggles Bianca and those close to her face lead up to a heart-stopping, thrilling climax that is among the best I’ve read. The final 25% of the novel ratchets up the intensity to a fever pitch and keeps it there to the final page.

Sword fights, old magic gone wild, dragons—and at the center of it all stands one young woman who, when it matters most, discovers just how strong she can be, in truly spectacular fashion.

THE HIGH PRIEST'S DAUGHTER

The new novel in Ms. Cross’ outstanding Network Series delivers everything we’ve come to expect from these books, and so much more.

Bianca Monroe has barely begun to catch her breath following the dramatic events of Antebellum Awakening when war comes to the Central Network, pitching everyone she cares for into danger. It also throws her into mortal danger, but Bianca never did care about her own safety ;).

The stakes have never been higher, and this plays out in more action, more conflict and more interpersonal drama than we’ve seen in the Network Series to date. Bianca must deal with betrayal and loss, and come face-to-face with the darkness festering in the hearts of her enemies, in order to save those she holds dear.

Bianca isn’t perfect - in fact she's kind of adorably flawed - but she is strong, capable and self-sufficient, and when her family and friends are threatened, you won’t find a more determined, fierce protector. She’s a force of nature, one warriors and leaders alike discover they must respect – or get out of her way.

*

WAR OF THE NETWORKS

The Network Series began in Miss Mabel’s with a girl fighting to free herself from the clutches of a dark magic—fighting for her life. It ends with a young woman fighting to free the world from the dark magic, so that all may live.

Even as Bianca’s journey has grown over the course of the series from a very individual struggle to an epic one, it has always remained a personal story. We care about saving the Networks because Bianca cares about saving her father, Merrick, her circle of dear friends, Letum Wood.

It would be very easy for the author to paint the enemy that Bianca and those close to her fight against as pure, unmitigated evil—and the enemy certainly commits enough evil to deserve it—but Ms. Cross doesn’t take the easy way out here. This is a story about empathy, forgiveness and choosing to rise above darkness rather than be consumed by it, easily as much as it’s a story of good triumphing over evil.

War of the Networks is an enthralling finale, and readers could not ask for a more fitting conclusion to the series. And that closing scene! Beautiful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable Series! Not to be Missed! 27 July 2016
By Lois R. Langweiler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Network Series is an amazing fantasy read from start to finish. The author plunges us into a world full of magic, witches, wizards and DRAGONS! All the characters are amazing, but I am in awe of Bianca, the spunky (sometimes delightfully snarky) heroine of the series. (Although I do love Mildred too!)
Just when I think Bianca is going to get her head above water and be able to take a breath, something else happens to the poor girl. This young lady is absolutely resilient and will rise to the occasion every time. I wouldn’t change a thing about the series. Remarkable job Katie Cross!

It was a slow read for me after the first book. Give me more character developmemt and less fluffy details about the character's surroundings.
