In the town of Eden in northwestern England stands the exclusive boarding school known as Archangel Academy. Ancient and imposing, it's a place filled with secrets. Just like its students. . . For Michael Howard, being plucked from his Nebraska hometown and sent thousands of miles away is as close as he's ever come to a miracle. In Weeping Water, he felt trapped, alone. At Archangel Academy, Michael belongs. And in Ciaran, Penry, and especially Ciaran's enigmatic half-brother Ronan, Michael finds friendship deeper than he's ever known. But Michael's only beginning to understand what makes the Academy so special. Ronan is a vampire--part of a hybrid clan who are outcasts even among other vampires. Within the Academy's confines exists a ruthless world of deadly rivalries and shifting alliances, of clandestine love and forbidden temptations. And soon Michael will confront the destiny that brought him here--and a danger more powerful than he can imagine. . . Michael Griffo is an award-winning writer and one of six playwrights whose career will be tracked by until 2010. He is a graduate of New York University, has studied at Playwrights Horizons and Gotham Writers Workshop, and has written several screenplays.

Lesson 2: The people we love most may be the ones we know least. . . Archangel Academy is more than a school to Michael Howard. Within its majestic buildings and serene English grounds, he's found friends, new love, and a place that feels more like home than Nebraska ever did. But the most important gift of Archangel Academy is immortality. . . Life as a just-made vampire is challenging for Michael, even with Ronan, an experienced vamp, to guide him. Michael's abilities are still raw and unpredictable. To add to the turmoil, the ancient feud between rival vampire species is sending ripples of discord through the school. And beneath the new headmaster's charismatic front lies a powerful and very personal agenda. Yet the mysteries lurking around the Academy pale in comparison to the secrets emerging from Michael's past. And choosing the wrong person to trust—or to love—could lead to an eternity of regret. . . Michael Griffo is an award-winning writer and one of six playwrights whose career will be tracked by until 2010. He is a graduate of New York University, has studied at Playwrights Horizons and Gotham Writers Workshop, and has written several screenplays.

An American boy at a British boarding school discovers his own identity—and acquires a new one as a vampire . . . The boarding school known as Archangel Academy possesses a legacy of secrets known only to a privileged few. For in this peaceful, charming part of England lives a population of vampires at war with one another—and young Michael Howard is caught in the middle of it all. When Michael left his small Nebraska hometown to enroll at Archangel Academy, he couldn’t have imagined how much the experience would change him. Back home, he’d been bullied for being different—and he’d been mortal. Now, Michael is a vampire with a destiny that was foretold long ago, and a group of friends with their own mysterious abilities. But he has enemies too, some of them hiding in plain sight. Being strong enough to defend himself isn’t enough. Michael must find a way to protect his entire race of vampires. Dark forces within the school will drive everyone to take sides in the escalating violence. And for all his new powers, Michael will discover that love, jealousy, and vengeance have a danger of their own . . .

From the author of Save Yourself, this dark, suspenseful tale of the twisted relationship between a brother and sister is “wicked fun” (Los Angeles Times). Beautiful, brilliant, and inseparable, Josie and Jack Raeburn live a secluded, anarchic existence in their decaying western Pennsylvania home. The only adult in their lives is their rage-prone father, a physicist, whose erratic behavior and frequent absences leave them isolated and dependent on each other for companionship. Without a moral compass to guide them, Jack leads Josie into a menacing world of wealth, eroticism, and betrayal. He encourages her to seduce a local boy for his own ulterior motives—but reacts with fury when a bond grows between the two. As the two venture out into the wider world and Jack’s sociopathic tendencies emerge, Josie must decide which is stronger: the love and devotion she feels for her brother, or her will to survive. From its opening page to its shocking climax, this contemporary Hansel and Gretel story is a “sharp portrait of an asphyxiating love and a legacy of madness . . . Darkly gothic and supremely readable” (Publishers Weekly). “Packs a powerful punch . . . Readers won’t soon forget the chilling, unexpected ending.” —Booklist “Deliciously intense . . . One of the most haunting novels I’ve read in years.” —Lauren Grodstein, author of A Friend of the Family

They had no idea they would be heroes. Neither did the wizards who brought them to Thera. Tom is sixteen when his younger sister, Jessie, vanishes before his eyes. Her loss, coming after an accident that left him in a wheelchair, causes his family to disintegrate. But Tom learns that Jessie's disappearance was not an isolated event. Long ago, wizards created a rift that shifted Earth's once-abundant magic to a separate world called Thera. Now, a terrible war rages there: some wizards strive to reunite the worlds, while others believe doing so would destroy both spheres. Both sides are stealing children with magical talent, like Jessie and Tom, to aid their cause. Desperate to bring Jessie back, Tom allows himself to be changed into a centaur so he can cross to Thera. Once there, he learns that he and his sister are pawns in the wizards' ongoing war. Rather than be manipulated, Tom and Jessie wage their own battles to save both worlds and return home.
