Mysterious Powers is a series about the magical community of the British Isles in the 1920s, living in a world changed by the Great War and its aftermath. Each book explores a different piece of the world, in the company of a different couple, exploring questions of power and what it means to have it or not have it.
- Elen and Roland in Carry On must figure out why Roland has been isolated from everyone he knows – and what is going on with his healer. Set in spring 1915 at the Temple of Healing.
- When a portal in the remote Scottish Highlands fails in the spring of 1922, Rathna (a fully qualified Portal Keeper) and Gabe (recently finished with his apprenticeship) are assigned to figure out the problem in The Fossil Door. Besides the challenges of a rocky landscape and a threatening possibly mythical monster, they both carry secrets they’ve never admitted to others.
- Thesan and Isembard expect the 1924-25 school year at Schola to be full of much the same as last year – teaching, other duties, and a pleasant time marking assignments with each other down at the pub on Saturday nights. Instead, the year brings an eclipse and all its changes, students up to something mysterious, academic politics, and a whirl of dizzying social events. Eclipse is a friends-to-lovers romance full of the change of perspective an eclipse can bring.
- Robin is rebuilding his life after a series of disastrous decisions and their consequences. Beatrice has lived with an inherited curse. When Robin overhears a conversation that must be about art forgery, he is too curious for his own good. Fool’s Gold has art, a custos dragon, and many mysteries in the deep vaults.
