Forest Magic series, by Diane M. Haynes
Book 1 – Rift Healer
After a minor earthquake, the enchanted forest in Bidwell, MA, is infested with monster-spewing rifts. Gisele’s great nephew, the gifted Micah, and his distant cousin, Selena, arrive to assist. Together with Gisele’s summer students, twins Haley and Lacey, they will try to help the magical forest. Much to the consternation of the beautiful Selena, Micah identifies Haley as The One whom he’ll share his future. But after witnessing a terrifying display of Micah’s Gift, Haley cools to his advances and unexpectedly discovers her own Gift– she can heal the earth. Monsters, mayhem, and teenage angst follow the small group as they confront evil in the forest and a dangerous prediction that ‘one will fall’. Will they heal the rifts in time? Can they save the unicorns? And is Haley really destined to be with Micah?
Book 2 – Sirocco
While on a Christmas visit to Bidwell, MA, sixteen year old Haley Miller sees a disturbing vision in her new crystal ball. With her sister Lacey and Lacey’s boyfriend, Taylor, she concocts a daring and dangerous plan to change the bleak fate of their elderly mentor, Gisele Westerfield.
Entering Gisele’s snow-filled enchanted forest, the teens attempt to locate the legendary Sirocco, an ancient creature reputedly able to cure all ills–unaware that the price for its service is far too high.
Their ill-conceived adventure promises excitement, danger, monsters and perhaps the scariest moment of all–Gisele’s fiery reaction to what they’ve done.
