Morgorth is known as the Dark Mage of the North. Now all he feels is light and love as he pursues a budding relationship with Aishe, a dialen of the Ravena tribe. Morgorth hardly believes his good fortune. He has allowed Aishe into his home, his bed, his heart. He laughs more, smiles more, and feels happier than he ever has.
He should have known such bliss never lasts.
The Council of Mages, the ruling body over all mages on Karshian, knows he has Rambujek, a major stone of power -- won from a sorcerer. They also know his destiny -- to become the Destroyer. Fearful, they send two emissaries to take the stone from Morgorth, using whatever means necessary, including tricks, threats to those under his protection, and the threat of war. A war Morgorth knows he would never survive.
Conflict arises between him and Aishe. Their tenuous relationship is put into jeopardy, and their very beliefs are put into question. Morgorth doubts that he should keep Aishe in his life. Can he protect Aishe from his enemies, as well as the monster he might become?

Fifteen-year-old Tyler Buckspan lives with his mom and grandmother in 1960s Cassadaga, a Florida community where spiritual “mediums” ply their trade. The mediums--Tyler’s grandmother among them--read palms and tarot cards, conduct seances and speak with the dead. Tyler’s a loner, a bookish boy with few interests, until his half-brother Devin, nineteen and a convicted arsonist, comes to live in Tyler’s home.
For years, Tyler has ignored his attraction to other boys. But with Devin in the house, Tyler can't deny his urges any longer. He falls hopelessly in love with his miscreant half-brother, and with the sport of basketball, once Devin teaches Tyler the finer points of the game. In a time when love between men was forbidden, even criminalized, can Tyler find the love he needs from another boy? And is Devin a person to be trusted? Is he truly clairvoyant, or simply a con artist playing Tyler and others for fools? What does Devin really know about a local murder? And can Tyler trust his own psychic twinges?
