Legend Seeker. Part-time Ghost Hunter. Time Traveler.

But when “Stormy” causes one too many public disasters, Rose is taken to Heartstone, an asylum for unstable magic. Its location? The heart of a haunted forest whose trees have mysteriously turned to stone.
They say the ghosts are bound to the woods … then why does Rose see them drifting outside the windows at night? And why is there a graveyard on the grounds filled with empty graves? Guided by her future selves via

Happy squeals, I loved this book! From the well-done world-building to the humor and fantastic uplifting story; I'm now happily following this author. Rose is fantastic and Marek amazing. This is a book for all ages, but you could start with middle-grades. (Keep away from beverages while reading, those surprise laughs can be dangerous otherwise.) Angels, ghost wolf, time-traveling, and I can't even list it all. There's so much to love about this book. I *need* them all. This is a set that belongs on my shelves, near Narnia and others I treasure.

Should kids enjoy spooky things?
It’s the question on many Christian parents’ minds this time of year. Should my kid see that movie, wear that costume, celebrate that holiday? From tots to teens, most kiddos have an undeniable fascination with Halloween. But should this be encouraged—or cut down quicker than the first victim of a horror flick?
Let me tell you a story. (Don’t worry, it’s not too scary.) Once upon a time, there was a young girl with a monster that followed her wherever she went. It bit at her constantly, venom flooding her veins with anxiety, teeth gnawing her courage to worried nubs. But her monster wasn’t really a monster—it was a debilitating health condition that took the girl’s entire childhood to diagnose.
For years, her fears and pain and panic seemed like her only friends. But then one day, the girl discovered a book se
But in the end—for there is always an end to such things—those books failed her.
They failed her because they didn’t point her to the only true source of bravery: Jesus.
And so, with this in mind, the girl grew up to write a book called Legend of the Storm Sneezer, a story about ghosts and time travel and the true meaning of sacrificial love.
Should kids enjoy spooky things? Maybe. Should kids enjoy spooky things that show them how the power of God’s love frightens any monster—or monster-sized problem? Absolutely.
