Two Worlds of Provenance (Two Worlds, #1)

Her fate lies just one world away… “Two Worlds is The Mortal Instruments meets Narnia.” --Amazon reader “Remember that dagger I gave you yesterday?” How could she forget the dagger—a token of her missing mother? Had it only been yesterday? It felt as if the whole world had changed overnight. As a matter of fact, it hadn’t. But instead of one world, now there were two. When sixteen-year-old Maray Johnson explores her new neighborhood, she hardly expects to see a medieval sword fight—especially not one that leaves her first responder to a severely injured boy, who despite all bone-deep wounds, has the nerve to kidnap her into an alternate dimension. This is Maray’s first trip to Allinan, a world with a falling apart monarchy. It is also how she meets Jemin Boyd, a guard of dimensions, who patrols the borders between the worlds, and seems to have a particular issue with the way Maray looks. Who is she, and why does everyone she meets look at her with either adoration or hatred? With each new discovery, Maray is left to wonder if she will ever get back home from Allinan. She only hopes that Jemin can help her uncover the truth, before the fates of two worlds are sealed… Two Worlds is bestselling author Angelina J. Steffort's new young adult fantasy romance about forbidden love, loss, and court intrigue that keeps it reader on edge with its fast paced, action packed style. -- Praise for Two Worlds: "In five words: the epitome of YA fantasy. Steffort's Two Worlds of Provenance and Two Worlds of Oblivion contain all of the elements necessary towards creating a thoughtful, engaging, thrilling fantastical read for teenagers (according to Writer's Edit) and even more. Magic system? Check. Well-developed setting? Check. Cast of complex characters? Check. A central conflict? Check, check, and check. A system of government? Check! Thanks to Claire Bradshaw at Writer's Edit and my own opinions, I can attest that Two Worlds of Oblivion is a well-written, thrilling, emotional book that deserves to be read. This series is definitely on my reread list, and I look forward to the next book!" -lifesanovelty blog "...We found Steffort's approach to this genre wildly unique and fresh, her characters were detailed and in-depth and there was something undeniably addictive about this story." -Dancing Bear Books "A smoothly executed fantasy that feels buoyant even while exploring themes of abandonment and redemption." -Kirkus Reviews "Steffort (The Wings Trilogy, 2019, etc.) brings narrative sleekness to her latest YA fantasy, balancing romance, humor, and unique takes on familiar monsters." -Kirkus Reviews -- Also in this series: Two Worlds of Provenance Two Worlds of Oblivion Two Worlds of Redemption Two Worlds of Dominion

A teenage girl campaigns to abolish a ban on Santa Claus, and finds herself battling political corruption.

All six-year-old Michael wants for Christmas is to welcome home his missing father. Stating his wish in a letter to Santa would be the norm for one so young. Only, the jolly old elf is nowhere to be found. The Supreme Court has ruled that Santa Claus does not exist. Lawmakers have banned displaying his likeness and singing songs that mention his name. Outraged, Michael's teenage sister launches a spirited campaign to force Congress to repeal the ban, insisting that believing in Santa is every child's right.

Antigone Finch
Bright young socialite Antigone Finch is not your average, demure sixteen-year-old. When she finds herself unexpectedly expelled from school and betrothed to her first Cousin Charles, she is forced to take drastic action. With the help of two feisty friends, Antigone leaves the gas-lit streets of London and boards a steamship bound for India. But, has she really escaped? What happens next will change everything.

Antigone becomes ensnared in a cross-continent plot that threatens to thrust Europe into war. An ancient Indian artefact, an unbearably handsome Sikh spy, Austrian Secret Police and a London chambermaid tease apart this cloak and dagger thriller.

Chasing the Sun
The new boy. The quiet girl. Will they find love during the solar eclipse?

Neb Connelly has looked forward to the solar eclipse for as long as he can remember. When his only friend in his new town invites him on a school camping trip to watch it, he’s there. And only 67% of his wanting to go is because of the quiet girl on the group text his friend started. She gets his jokes, doesn’t mind when he geeks out about the eclipse, and for the first time in months, he’s ready to chase more than the sun.

Recently single Sage Winters fears she’s too damaged for love, but her self-help-loving best friend drags her on a “path of self-healing” — which apparently includes going camping with twenty classmates to see the solar eclipse. And Neb, who she’s never met but whose silly space jokes turn her insides to mush, will be there. But when they finally meet in person, another girl stakes her claim on him. Does Sage run the other way to save her heart, or risk it all for a chance at happiness with this space boy?

Book one in the Campfire Series, Chasing the Sun, is a lighthearted romance with space puns, Portland shenanigans, and enough feels to totally eclipse your heart.

In the Grip of Time
A musical gnome, an orphaned princess and a powerful mage all desperately seek the Ancient Device, but who will get to it first?

Sawwse Bohge, a wispy-haired, restless gnome, dreams of running away from her Blue Forest home and becoming the greatest musician in the land.

Mirrah, one of the world’s most powerful wizards, finds a magical relic said to bestow the user with control over time. The relic is cursed with a spell that starts to erode her mind.

The King of Dorienne is cruelly murdered, and his daughter, Princess Eugenie, would do anything to turn back the clock.

As Mirrah and Eugenie do battle for the Ancient Device, Sawwse joins forces with the Actum Tempus guild. All three are clutched within the grip of time, but as the Device pulls them deeper into its deadly snare, the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
