Fireflies Trilogy


Fireflies Trilogy

Experience the journey of a love story that stretches from the far reaches of the universe to the Appalachian trails of the northeast.


Pine Grove has always been a peaceful place, and sixteen-year-old Marley feels right at home in the Appalachians. Things change when a close encounter of the third kind leaves a glowing mark on her shoulder, and a new boy shows up at school. A peculiar glimmer in his eyes reminds her of fireflies, both captivating and scaring her right out of her boots. When he reveals that he’s a host for alien symbiotes, it sends her running in the opposite direction...that is, until he catches her.

Meanwhile...Will is entering yet another school midyear. He has his usual problems: acclimate to a new school, deal with his assigned FBI agent, track a compatible human, all while appearing the normal teenage boy. He can’t believe his luck when his search leads him to Marley, a girl more agile in the woods than in a mall. He reminds himself that he can’t let what happened to his last assignment happen in Pine Grove, not to her...


In Fireflies Will and Marley found each other. Now, in Razers, they discover how much they are willing to risk for a future together.

Seventeen-year-old Will doesn’t want to kill Marley, but if they take their relationship to the next level, he could do just that. The alien symbiotes living inside his body are deadly to ordinary humans. Determined to find a cure, Will leaves Marley to start her senior year at Pine Grove High alone.

But Marley isn’t alone...

Sam Wyatt is a strange and potentially dangerous alien host called a razer. While he looks like a typical teenage boy, he’s far from it—he’s lost the ability to think for himself. At least up until now. Now there’s one thing he can think about, one thing all razers in Pine Grove think about—Marley Hunter.


Will found love with Marley, in Fireflies. Then, in Razers, he lost her. Now in Mystics, the exciting and anticipated conclusion of the Fireflies trilogy, he learns that sometimes not even death can separate a love that transcends space and time.

Will, a teenage host for alien symbiotes, is ridden with grief over the death of his human girlfriend, Marley. That is until he meets the mysterious Abigail, who is a spitting image of her. He soon uncovers a secret government project that will rock his world, sending him head first into a dangerous alien conspiracy even bigger than his own.

Abigail doesn’t remember anything before the accident that left her in a coma. Thrown into an unfamiliar life, she finds herself a participant in a scientific experiment and the company of men with dangerous secrets. Even more unsettling is how she feels when she’s with the dark-haired boy who lives in her dreams…
