The Ever Afters

The Ever Afters 1: Of Giants and Ice

Happily Ever After can seem a long way off when you’re waiting for your life to really begin…

Rory Landon has been known her whole life as the daughter of a famous movie star and an award-winning Hollywood director. So it is a surprise and a relief when no one at her new after-school program seems to care or even know who her parents are.

That relief quickly turns to disbelief when Rory finds herself faced with a real live fire-breathing dragon on her first day and she realizes that at Ever After School, the kids look up to a different kid of celebrity. For example, Jack (as in the Beanstalk) and Snow White (like with the Seven Dwarfs) are not only real, but teaching Rory and her friends how to prepare for when their own tale begins. Never in the spotlight before, Rory is about to discover just what it means to have the starring role.

But is her tale destined for a happy ending?

 The Ever Afters 2: Of Witches and Wind

Once upon a time, there was a story waiting to be told…

Rory Landon has a Destiny. Everyone knows about it, but no one will tell her what it means. This is all very troubling considering the similarities between her and the infamous Snow Queen, trapped in her glass castle. No matter what it turns out to be, Rory is certain about one thing; she doesn’t want to be like her.But at the Ever After School program, you cannot choose your Tale.

Having been a Companion on her best friend’s successful Tale, Rory has finally found her footing in this new world, where fairy tales are real. But when a nefarious plot threatens all her new friends, Rory finds herself back on another quest, this time to the lost continent of Atlantis. With the clock ticking away, and a never-ending cast of characters interrupting them, Rory’s destiny might not even matter if she can’t get through this alive.

Of Sorcery and Snow
 
In a land not so far away…

At Ever After School, you’re only as good as the fairy-tale character that you’re destined to become. Rory Landon has been impatiently waiting for hers since she started two years ago.

In the meantime, Rory has someone else’s tale to worry about. The Pied Piper has stolen a thousand and one kids, including some of her friends from Ever After School, and led them into the magical realm. When the quest to rescue them is deemed too dangerous, Rory, Chase, and Lena decide to take it upon themselves to get them back. They know the Snow Queen is behind this and are determined to strike her where she least expects, her home fortress in the Arctic Circle. But Rory may have a way to go before she gets her happily ever after.

Of Enemies and Endings Cover
 
How will this tale end?

The whole fairy-tale world is on high alert. The Snow Queen and her minions are targeting Characters, and Ever After School is the only safe refuge left. Rory knows a final confrontation is inevitable, and she worries about the safety of her family and friends–particularly Chase, who has been acting very strange lately.

Will Rory be able to count on Chase when she needs him most? Is she strong enough to put an end to the Snow Queen’s terrible reign once and for all? Only one this is certain: it’s time for Rory to find out if her tale ends in happily ever after.
