  • Orphans Wish

    $12.99

    A reimagining of the beloved folktale, Aladdin, set in medieval Germany.

    Orphaned and alone, Aladdin travels from the streets of his Arab homeland to a strange, faraway place. Growing up in an orphanage, he meets young Lady Kirstyn, whose father is the powerful Duke of Hagenheim. Despite the difference in their stations, Aladdin quickly becomes Kirstyn’s favorite companion, and their childhood friendship grows into a bond that time and opposition cannot break.

    Even as a child, Aladdin works hard, learning all he can from his teachers. Through his integrity, intelligence, and sheer tenacity, he earns a position serving as the duke’s steward. But that isn’t enough to erase the shame of being forced to steal as a small child-or the fact that he’s an orphan with no status. If he ever wants to feel equal to his beautiful and generous friend Kirstyn, he must leave Hagenheim and seek his fortune.

    Yet once Aladdin departs, Lady Kirstyn becomes a pawn in a terrible plot. Now, Aladdin and Kirstyn must rely on their bond to save her from unexpected danger. But will saving Kirstyn cost Aladdin his newfound status and everything he’s worked so hard to obtain?

    An enchanting new version of the well-known tale, The Orphan’s Wish tells a story of courage and loyalty, friendship and love, and reminds us what family really means.

  • Parable Of A True Knight

    $30.99

    What is the first thing that comes to your mind when someone mentions a knight-in-shining-armor? Perhaps you think of a valiant warrior dressed in plate armor (naturally), galloping across the land with his noble steed looking for wrongs he can right. Or maybe you image him facing a mighty dragon with sword and shield in hand, braving the fire-breathing monster fearlessly. You may even envision him rescuing a beautiful princess who has been locked in a castle tower by her ruthless uncle until she agrees to marry him. All of these things and more encapsulate the dreams of young Benjamin Knight. And, as he is likely to explain to you, he is not a true knight. That’s just his name.

    Benjamin has been raised in a loving home in a medieval setting and wants nothing more than to grow up to become a true knight. That opportunity presents itself in an unlikely manner one day when he meets a young man, Joshua, advertising the Jousting Tournament that is coming to town. Joshua recognizes Benjamin’s genuine love for the traditional knight-in-shining-armor, and takes him under his wing, teaching him that his understanding of knights, while quite popular with the masses, is incomplete.

    Our young hero struggles with many of the same worldly temptations we all face along the way; greed, selfishness, a sense of worthlessness and a desire to quit when things get too difficult. In the midst of his journey, he encounters an evil man who draws Benjamin into an equally evil plot to overthrow the kingdom. He is then given an ultimatum: Assist in the plot and have your dreams come true or refuse and lose everything that is important to you. What choice will he make?

    This book weaves and illustrates the instructive lessons Joshua demonstrates with the colorful and active imagination of a young boy. Readers should be able to relate with Benjamin and his adventures and hopefully glean from this parable some encouraging truths and moral principles to apply to their own lives.

  • Parable Of A True Knight

    $10.99

    What is the first thing that comes to your mind when someone mentions a knight-in-shining-armor? Perhaps you think of a valiant warrior dressed in plate armor (naturally), galloping across the land with his noble steed looking for wrongs he can right. Or maybe you image him facing a mighty dragon with sword and shield in hand, braving the fire-breathing monster fearlessly. You may even envision him rescuing a beautiful princess who has been locked in a castle tower by her ruthless uncle until she agrees to marry him. All of these things and more encapsulate the dreams of young Benjamin Knight. And, as he is likely to explain to you, he is not a true knight. That’s just his name.

    Benjamin has been raised in a loving home in a medieval setting and wants nothing more than to grow up to become a true knight. That opportunity presents itself in an unlikely manner one day when he meets a young man, Joshua, advertising the Jousting Tournament that is coming to town. Joshua recognizes Benjamin’s genuine love for the traditional knight-in-shining-armor, and takes him under his wing, teaching him that his understanding of knights, while quite popular with the masses, is incomplete.

    Our young hero struggles with many of the same worldly temptations we all face along the way; greed, selfishness, a sense of worthlessness and a desire to quit when things get too difficult.

  • Onyx Stones : Mystery Of The Underground People

    $30.99

    When a mysterious boy arrives at her bedside, a despairing young accident victim resents his intrusion. Twelve-year-old Cricket Dalton is convinced her life is over. What good is living if you can’t move or feel anything below your neck? And, worse yet, you’ve been relegated indefinitely to a dreary nursing home. The mysterious Josh makes Cricket talk, and he nearly force-feeds her pancakes to get her to eat. Then, one day, Josh introduces Cricket to his magic onyx stones. With one click of the stones, the two of them fly to a city on an unknown planet. There, Cricket and Josh are forced to escape from a heartless crowd. As they flee, they encounter other people in hiding-people who survive on nightly dumpster raids and a promise that one day a savior will come for them. Their plight reminds Cricket of Biblical End Times’ prophecies on Earth, but their future seems more hopeless. Cricket’s heart breaks for the little children trapped in the sunless underground labyrinth, and she and Josh devise a way to bring them food. With every visit, Cricket criticizes their God as having abandoned them. But, little by little, through the fugitives’ stories of past persecution and rescue, the underground people convince her that hope does exist. They convince Cricket that the timeline of the prophecies indicates their rescue is near–to be preceded by a massive earthquake that will either bury or deliver them.

    Back at the nursing home, other changes are taking place. A new black nurse becomes Cricket’s staunch defender and champion. A misguided nursing home director has taken extreme measures to uncover why, some mornings, Cricket’s gown and bed socks indicate she has been walking. Is your paralysis a sham, Missy? the woman challenges. How can Cricket explain about the onyx-stone adventures and how, while on them, she can, indeed, walk? Surely, no one would believe her. But the new nurse, Marlene Grace, takes a chance. And Marlene Grace’s dedication and love promise to make Cricket’s quadriplegic life full and blessed.

    That promise is threatened, however, when, on a startling trip back to the planet, Cricket and Josh join their underground friends in a panicked race to escape the collapse of the labyrinth. The earthquake has begun . . .

  • To Best The Boys

    $17.99

    In a new fantasy novel from Mary Weber, bestselling author of the Storm Siren series and the Sofi Snow books, one girl makes a stand against society and enters a world made exclusively for boys.

    Every year for the past fifty-four years, the residents of Pinsbury Port receive a mysterious letter inviting all eligible-aged boys to compete for an esteemed scholarship to the all-male Stemwick University. Every year, the poorer residents look to see that their names are on the list. The wealthier look to see how likely their sons are to survive. And Rhen Tellur opens it to see if she can derive which substances the ink and parchment are created from, using her father’s microscope.

    In the province of Caldon, where women are trained in wifely duties and men are encouraged into collegiate education, sixteen-year-old Rhen Tellur wants nothing more than to become a scientist. As the poor of her seaside town fall prey to a deadly disease, she and her father work desperately to find a cure. But when her Mum succumbs to it as well? Rhen decides to take the future into her own hands-through the annual all-male scholarship competition.

    With her cousin, Seleni, by her side, the girls don disguises and enter Mr. Holm’s labyrinth, to best the boys and claim the scholarship prize. Except not everyone’s ready for a girl who doesn’t know her place. And not everyone survives the maze.

  • 48

    $17.99

    Henry VIII’s Tudor court meets time-traveling teen assassins in this riveting thriller.Twins Charlie and Alex Douglas are the newest time travelers recruited to the Forty-Eight, a clandestine military group in charge of manipulating history. The brothers are tasked with preventing Henry VIII from marrying Jane Seymour and arrive in 1536 feeling confident, but the Tudor court is not all banquets and merriment: it is a deep well of treachery, torture, lust, intrigue, and suspicion. That makes it especially dangerous for young people who refuse to know their place–young women who might, say, want to marry for love instead of status, or young men who would feel free to love each other, if it weren’t forbidden. Told in alternating perspectives among Charlie, Alex, and sixteen-year-old Lady Margaret, a ladies’ maid to Queen Anne Boleyn, The 48 captures the sights, smells, sounds, and hazards of an unhinged Henry VIII’s court from the viewpoint of one person who lived that history–and two teens who have been sent to turn it upside down. Includes an author’s note touching on her inspiration for the book and the research she did to bring the Tudor Court to life.
