You might have neighbors that act like they’re not from planet Earth. But what if they aren’t? What if the fate of humanity depends on you—a High School senior with mediocre grades, a suspicious nature, and a few secrets—one furry and one illegal? On the same day her mother returns to rehab, Sydney meets her quirky foster family, complete with a lazy bloodhound and chickens. But she isn’t the only one new to this Seattle neighborhood. The strikingly handsome Rafael and his sister Harmony move in across the street. They try their best to fit in, but Sydney soon realizes there's something not right about them. What she ultimately discovers means nothing will ever be the same for her again. In fact, it won’t be the same again for anyone . . . if the ancient beings returning to Earth have their way. This new modern fantasy series introduces you to the mysterious and dark world of Tulpas, ancient beings from different dimensions, and the Brotherhood of the Snake. As Sydney’s world falls apart, she rises to the occasion with courage and unexpectedly finds her true love along the way. Grades 7 and up. 83,605 words 427 pages The Glass Wall is the first book in a series of four, with the remainder to follow: "The Brotherhood of the Snake", "The Inner Circle", and "The Egg" About the Author: Like many of us on this planet, Madison Adler is from another world. She spends every moment she can scribbling stories on sticky notes that her kids find posted all over the car, house, and barn. When she is not working as a software engineer, she is busy ferrying her kids to various appointments, writing lyrics for her husband's songs, taking care of the dog Tigger and his heart condition, attempting to tame her three insane cats, scratching her three Nigerian Dwarf Goats behind the horns or coddling her flock of thirty bizarre chickens from around the world. The "Glass Wall" is the first book of her new paranormal series about ancient beings, Tulpas and different dimensions. And as always, she can't help but add a good, clean romance into the mix. Madison Adler also writes Medieval Scottish Romances under the name of Carmen Cain.
