Miri has seen Akaros’ return—and James’ death. But James has been to Hell and back and refuses to let Akaros rob him of his future with Miri. Desi might not be there to save him this time, but James is determined to save himself.
A Desolation Novella.
Ali Cross grew up watching Bruce Lee movies and dreamed of being a kick-butt martial artist like Cynthia Rothrock. Well, she never became the kind of ninja she envisioned, but she does hold a black belt in awesome. She lives in Utah with her kickin' husband, two sparring sons, one ninja cat, one sumo dog and four zen turtles. And a cache of nunchucks, staffs, kamas and other dangerous ninja-weapons.
Ali moonlights as Alex Banks where she writes wild middle grade adventures set in the faraway places of her imagination.
What are you, if neither Heaven nor Hell wants you?
