Riverkeep

Martin Stewart

Stewart’s first novel draws upon folklore to create an action-packed fantasy world set on the fictional shores of the treacherous Danék River. For generations, the river has been tended by the Fobisher family who have kept it free of hazards and recovered corpses from its bleak depths. As Wulliam approaches his 16th birthday, he knows the time has come for him to inherit the grim position of Riverkeep from his father. Unlike the other men in his family, Wull dreads the job. But then the unthinkable happens and his father is attacked by a watery parasite that slowly eats its victims from the inside out. When he hears that a cure lurks in the belly of an enormous sea monster, Wull embarks on a dangerous journey to find the creature. Along the way he collects a motley group of traveling companions, faces death, and finds courage he never knew he possessed.

Emily France

In her debut novel, France blends the supernatural and the spiritual in her entertaining mystery. It’s been two years since Riley Strout lost her mother and while it's not getting any easier, she has received friendship and support from the members of her after-school counseling program. Riley, along with Jay, Kate and Noah understand each other’s pain and share a bond so deep that they are more like family than friends. When Riley thinks she sees her dead mother in the supermarket, she's convinced she's losing her mind. Then Kate and Jay both confess to seeing their dead loved ones too. Riley suspects their visions may have something to do with the ancient Saint Ignatius cross, a relic belonging to Jay’s late father. When Noah goes missing, the others discover he's been researching the history of the cross and its mysterious connection to the afterlife.
