    Black Valley is The Wicker Man meets Silent Hill: a dark fantasy novel drawing on ancient Celtic Myth and grounded in post-industrial North Wales.
     
    1918: The Manager of a Welsh slate quarry at Cwm Du (Black Valley) pushes ahead with plans to open up a new slate face in a natural cavern in the mountains, despite the protests of his workers and the wise woman of the village, the Druidess Myfanwy. The resulting explosion not only unleashes underground water to flood the quarry killing hundreds of quarrymen, it also brings with it the ancient race from the Otherworld below: Gwyllion.  
     
    To save the world from the wrath of the Gwyllion and the pestilence they carry, Myfanwy seals Cwm Du from the outside world: Cwm Du becomes a forgotten lost valley shrouded in myth, guarded by her daughter, Becca, the new Druidess.
     
    2020: a hundred years later: Becca's only female descendant, Laura, is bequeathed a cottage in the village of Cwm Du, beside the now flooded quarry. Laura travels to the cottage with her boyfriend Jimmy. 
     
    Laura and Jimmy enter Cwm Du to find a place where the Gwyllion are suddenly returning, threatening the inhabitants and the outside world. Laura's unexpected role is to become the next Druidess, but can she do so and save the world when the Gwyllion are at her door?

It seemed simple enough, until Marguerite wakes up one evening to find herself at the wrong end of a sword. Now she realizes she's in way over her head. 
    Julius Notte wants to protect Marguerite, and not because someone just tried to take her head off. She doesn't know it yet, but she's his lifemate and he's determined to woo her. It's been over five hundred years since he last courted a woman, but surely the techniques haven't changed. Now if only he can keep her alive—so to speak—so they can have that happily-ever-after.

    “High emotional stakes and an intriguing premise make this first entry in Foster’s new trilogy a solid next read for those who enjoyed Pierce Brown’s Red Rising or Veronica Roth’s Divergent." -- Library Journal 
    An alternate reality that feels all-too-real, The Rift Uprising is the explosive start to a new trilogy that blurs the line between parallel universes—not to mention YA and adult science fiction—from acclaimed lyricist and storyteller Amy S. Foster. 
    Normal seventeen-year-old girls go to high school, binge watch TV shows all weekend, and flirt with everyone on the face of the Earth. But Ryn Whitaker is trying to save it. 
    Ryn is a Citadel. A soldier. A liar. Ryn and her fellow Citadels were specially chosen and trained to guard a Rift—one of fourteen unpredictable tears in the fabric of the universe that serve as doorways to alternate Earths. Unbeknownst to her family, Ryn leaves for school each day and then reports for duty as an elite, cybernetically-altered soldier who can run faster, jump farther, and fight better than a Navy SEAL—which comes in handy when she’s not sure if axe-wielding Vikings or any number of other scared and often dangerous beings come through the Rift. A fine-tuned weapon, Ryn is a picture-perfect Citadel. 
    But that’s all about to change. 
    When a young man named Ezra is pulled through the Rift, Ryn finds herself immediately drawn to him, despite her training. What starts as a physical attraction quickly grows deeper, and Ezra’s curiosity throws Ryn off balance when he starts questioning the Rifts, the mysterious organization that oversees them, and the Citadels themselves—questions that lead Ryn to wonder if the lies she’s been telling her family are just the surface of a much bigger lie told to her. As Ryn and Ezra desperately try to get to that truth, they discover that each revelation blurs the line between the villains and the heroes even more.
