The “Time Stones” series:

Book I: Quillan Creek and the Little War

Jessie Mason has troubles enough in her young life. Orphaned and shunned, her aunt has been the one constant in her life. But when her aunt inexplicably disappears, and Jessie discovers her mother’s Time Stone, events at the upstate New York children’s home lead Jessie into mortal peril.

Her escape is a summons to a world of conflict, upheaval and fear, 250 years in her past, to three unlikely companions, Tip, Kes and Abe, and to the aged shaman, Nishkamich, who promises an education in the powers of the stones which they each possess. Battling disbelief, Jessie reluctantly agrees to remain in the hostile Onondaga village and listen to the shaman’s instruction.

She warms to the strange new life and the growing bond between her unpredictable fellow apprentices. But when Tip and Abe reveal the paths of destruction and violence which brought them to the village, the friends must consider that their stones are being ruthlessly hunted through history.

In frozen forests, their friendship, their wits, and the very limits of their endurance, will be tested by nature’s unforgiving winter and one man’s determination to seize what is theirs.

Book II: Quetzalcoatl

Since finding her mother’s Time Stone, Jessie Mason’s life has been one challenge after another.  Together with her fellow travellers, Tip, Kes and Abe, she is beginning to understand the incredible powers that the stones bestow on them. However, escape from the woodlands of 18th Century New York extracted a heavy price, for they left behind their aged mentor, Grandfather. Now Jessie must lead her friends in the hopeless task Grandfather set them: hunt down and destroy the Time Stones. As her consciousness awakes in the timeless void, she knows her leadership has already failed. Tip has severed the link which bound them together, Abe has disappeared, and she and Kes have arrived at some unplanned place and time.

Jessie quickly learns their destination is the centre of an empire; one in turmoil as it struggles to comprehend a changing world. With an act of self-preservation, she and Kes are unexpectedly thrust into the heart of a fractured Mexica nobility, desperate to halt the advancing Spanish conquistadors. Trapped and awaiting the inevitable clash of cultures, Jessie is immersed in a way of life, fascinating and disturbing in equal measure, that she knows will be brutally extinguished.

Abe’s sudden appearance places the friends on opposing sides, as Tenochtitlan, the fabulous capital of the Mexica, descends into savage violence. But Abe brings startling news, the man pursuing them through time, the man responsible for their predicament, is close at hand. They just have to find him, and his stone, in the chaos of battle.

With world history changing direction around them, Jessie and her friends are forced to decide which is more important: stone or escape. Finally, they discover only one course of action remains, they must fight to survive.
