THE MAGIC SHOE SERIES
Wren Larkin has a lot of things working against him––too tall, too thin, and living in a house that looks like an old boot. His only friends are a group of noisy crows that are always bringing him random trinkets. Needless to say, he’s not the most popular kid in town.
But things change when a girl named Maria moves to town and instantly befriends Wren. Maria continues to do the unexpected when she defends Rusty, the resident bad boy who might not be as rebellious as Wren thought. Wren soon learns that it isn’t just coincidence that bought the three of them together when he discovers a shoe workshop under the heel of his house that’s holding––or perhaps hiding––three pairs of magical shoes intended for each of them.
When strangers arrive on Wren’s doorstep looking for the shoes, Wren and his new companions have no choice but to flee to Underfoot, an underground settlement full of magical creatures. In just a matter of days, Wren is immersed into a whole new reality that’ll take him on an incredible journey and reveal a lineage that might be better left secret.
Compass to Vinland
Clarity of Sight
Maria is struggling in Underfoot. A hooded figure haunts her dreams, her mind-reading abilities have grown so powerful that even her closest friends avoid her touch, she’s seeing strange threads of light everywhere, and her parents are still nowhere to be found. Having been banned from returning to the surface for the time being, she anxiously awaits word from the search party that went looking for her parents and the other missing Vins.
During what was supposed to be a joyous occasion, an evil entity strikes, creating chaos in the underground settlement, and Wren is captured by the Wrathful, along with Eyota. In order to escape the mayhem and rescue their friends, Maria, Rusty, and Pan must journey up top, find allies, and fight the enemy. Along the way, Maria finds answers to her never-ending questions and discovers fate is far more powerful than she realized.
