Gwenda Bond - Lány ​a kötélen
"Üdvözli ​nézőit a Cirque American! A tizenhat éves Jules Maroni álma, hogy kötéltáncos édesapja nyomdokaiba léphessen a magasban. A Repülő Garciák jelenléte azonban könnyen keresztülhúzhatja a lány számításait. A rivális Maronik és a Garciák ugyanis hosszú évtizedek óta esküdt ellenségként kerülik egymást… Jules azonban nem hajlandó tudomásul venni a családi drámát, és csakis a drótkötélre összpontosít. De amikor felfedez egy pávatollat – egy hírhedt, balszerencsét hozó tárgyat – a jelmezén, Jules kis híján elveszíti az egyensúlyát. Miközben egyre több titokzatos, balszerencsét hordozó talizmán bukkan fel a színen, Jules rájön, nincs más választása: segítséget kell elfogadnia, mégpedig a legváratlanabb forrásból: Remy Garciától, aki mellesleg a Cirque legjobb légtornásza. De mitől óvja annyira nagyanyja a lányt? Mit tartogatnak Jules számára a Nagy Arkánum lapjai? Meg lehet-e változtatni előre megírt sorsunkat?"

Gwenda Bond - Fallout
Lois ​Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis. An Army brat, Lois has lived all over—and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won’t be that easy. A group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They’re messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it’s all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy.

Gwenda Bond - Girl ​in the Shadows
Eighteen-year-old ​Moira Mitchell grew up in the shadows of Vegas’s stage lights while her father’s career as a magician soared. More than anything, Moira wants to be a magician too, but her father is dead set against her pursuing magic. When an invitation to join the Cirque American mistakenly falls into Moira’s possession, she takes action. Instead of giving the highly coveted invitation to its intended recipient, Raleigh, her father’s handsome and worldly former apprentice, Moira takes off to join the Cirque. If she can perform alongside its world-famous acts, she knows she’ll be able to convince her dad that magic is her future. But when Moira arrives, things take on an intensity she can’t control as her stage magic suddenly feels like…real magic. To further distract her, Raleigh shows up none too pleased at Moira’s presence, all while the Cirque’s cocky and intriguing knife thrower, Dez, seems to have it out for her. As tensions mount and Moira’s abilities come into question, she must decide what’s real and what’s an illusion. If she doesn’t sort it out in time, she may forever remain a girl in the shadows.

Amid the rising tensions of the new decade, Terry Ives and Martin Brenner have begun a different kind of war—one where the human mind is the battlefield.
