Click the covers to learn more about the books!

Amaya Wilson already thought her family was struggling to make ends meet when she comes home one night to find her father has lost his job. Hopelessness starts to settle in until her younger brother, Tyler, remembers a map and a story their grandfather used to tell them. A story of their ancestor who found and hid a Golden Gift up in the mountains.

Out of desperation to help their family get back on their feet, they head into the mountains with the newfound map guiding them, hoping to find the treasure he hid. What they find instead is not a pile of gold, but Darren, a boy who was put under a timeless sleep and has the ability to turn anything to gold with a touch of a finger.

But before the three of them can figure out what to do, they quickly discover there are people after Darren who believe he may be the key to a mystical book this mysterious group has been searching for.

All Amaya wanted to do was find some gold in the mountains to save her family, but what she got instead was a world of secret societies, supernatural abilities and a search for an ancient book that could make or break all of their futures.

Two weeks after her near fatal encounter with Lewis Atlas in the mountains, Amaya isn’t sure if she can keep juggling everything being thrown at her. Her parents are furious with her for running away with Tyler for days on end, Darren won’t speak to her and now she has an incorporeal boy named Mateo, who claims he’s been trapped in the emerald for centuries, stalking her.

Darren can’t stop thinking about his touch turning Amaya to gold and is now determined to stay away from her. The last thing he wants to do is hurt another person. As Cleo has him searching for more information on the pendant that may hold more secrets than they realize, Darren is haunted by his past and grappling with his growing feelings for Amaya.

Together, the team has to regroup and face not just what happened up in those mountains, but themselves too as new revelations are revealed and long buried secrets are uncovered. They have to get the Archive back from Lewis, free Mateo from his imprisonment and race to be the first to discover the truth about the pendant and the Archive before anyone else can get to them first.

Scarlet Phoenix is the fiery and explosive book 3 in The Archive Series.

Amaya is now the emerald phantom instead of the emerald’s keeper. Stung by betrayal and caught off guard by new discoveries, Amaya is forced to face secrets that are revealed and mysteries that are unraveled within her new prison. Visions of the past haunt her, and no matter how had she tries, she can’t seem to figure out what they mean.

Darren and the others have escaped the Aztec temple… but at a price. They’re forced to leave the crumbled ruins with more questions than answers and more than a few battered hearts. With Amaya now trapped inside of the emerald, their new goal is to get her out before she and Tyler have to get back to their parents. Darren can’t stop thinking about the kiss they shared and will do anything to free Amaya and get her back before it’s too late.

As the team is separated, lies are brought to the surface and a new villain surfaces, they all are left reeling. They must befriend old enemies to survive and work together to find out more about the emerald, about the Archive and a dangerous new organization intent on burning their world down to take the emerald for themselves.
