To her friends, high school senior Liza Yang is nearly perfect. Smart, kind, and pretty, she dreams big and never shies away from a challenge. But to her mom, Liza is anything but. Compared to her older sister Jeannie, Liza is stubborn, rebellious, and worst of all, determined to push back against all of Mrs. Yang's traditional values, especially when it comes to dating.
The one thing mother and daughter do agree on is their love of baking. Mrs. Yang is the owner of Houston's popular Yin & Yang Bakery. With college just around the corner, Liza agrees to help out at the bakery's annual junior competition to prove to her mom that she's more than her rebellious tendencies once and for all. But when Liza arrives on the first day of the bake-off, she realizes there's a catch: all of the contestants are young Asian American men her mother has handpicked for Liza to date.
The bachelorette situation Liza has found herself in is made even worse when she happens to be grudgingly attracted to one of the contestants; the stoic, impenetrable, annoyingly hot James Wong. As she battles against her feelings for James, and for her mother's approval, Liza begins to realize there's no tried and true recipe for love.
High school junior Gigi Wong strives to be the best. After all, that’s what everyone expects of her—her parents, friends, and even potential colleges. Thankfully, her best friend, Kyle, is always there to listen with a smile and a delicious bowl of ramen. Still, with her future—and her dreams—on the line, how is she to stand out when her classmates seem so perfect too?
Her answer comes in the form of an app writing contest. If Gigi can secure the nomination to represent her school, she has a chance at a prestigious tech internship. That’s sure to get her applications noticed . . . All she needs is a winning entry.
When transfer student and new friend Etta confides that she’s struggling to fit in, it gives Gigi an idea. What if she takes what she’s learned from shadowing her aunt Rose, a professional matchmaker, to create a fun friend-making app? Perfect!
When Gigi's app goes viral at school, she's the center of attention--and a major scandal. She never meant to hurt anyone, let alone Etta and Kyle. Can she save all she worked so hard for and the relationships that mean so much to her?
As her ancestor’s form blurs in front of her and begins to fade, Morgana repeats the command she gave Sophia at the beginning of her journey.
“Trust in yourself. Find the crown. Save the realm.”
Sophia and the others are summoned back to Avalon by the Elders only days after being dealt a crushing blow by the Dark Ones. They are asked to continue the search for Laila's crown, but before they can a surprise attack shatters the bond between the five friends, leaving one imprisoned and the rest wondering just who might be next.
Realizing that the enemy has infiltrated their ranks, the Council locks down the realm while Sophia is whisked away under the protection of master guardian Remiel.
With pressure mounting from all sides, Sophia is pushed to her limits and makes a decision that nearly ends in disaster. Now, she must face the consequences of her actions and attempt to redeem herself in the eyes of those she loves. With help from unexpected allies and her own growing power, Sophia must stay one step ahead as she completes the quest for the missing relic.
Can Sophia overcome her fears and embrace her destiny, or will the Dark Ones finally succeed in tearing the Fearless Five apart forever?
“Find the truth within the word, revealed in rhyme and riddle; Release the power from the first, bring balance to the middle.”
At that, the Meriditom begins to spin rapidly, with a ball of light growing from within its center. As it enlarges, Sophia’s body starts to rise off the ground, her arms outstretched and her eyes glowing with a ring of gold.
When a series of unexpected events unfold before Sophia's quering, the Council decides to task her with reassembling the famed Origo key. Long rumored to unlock the location of Laila's missing crown, the key's pieces have been spread throughout the realm, discoverable only by a seeker with the purest of hearts.
Entrusted with the key's center element, the Meriditom, Sophia and her friends embark on a quest across the outer lands in search of the five remaining pieces. Between the grueling challenges she must endure at each location and the growing tension between Damien and Michael, Sophia begins to wonder if the magic she seeks is worth the sacrifice.
Will the Fearless Five succeed in completing the Origo key, or will a stunning betrayal stop them in their tracks and claim the life of another?
the time is near, the flower blooms from the stem.
A child of Fey, foreseen in lore,
with relics in hand, will power restore.”
Sophia has barely recovered from her battle with the Dark Ones when she receives word that her presence has been requested in Avalon. The Council of Elders, the realm's highest faeids, plan to perform a quering, a terrifying ceremony that could leave her lost in her memories forever.
To make matters worse, she must accept an offer to be hosted at the home of Ariella and Nathaniel Fey, who believe she is the daughter they gave up to protect. Things are even more complicated once Sophia arrives in the capitol city, with constant nightmares and an old promise threatening to derail her budding romance and tear the friends apart.
Still, the longer she stays in the realm, the closer Sophia feels to the magic around her. Her connection to the Lilith links grow stronger by the day, and soon the sacred relics reveal another secret.
Will living life as a faeid awaken long suppressed powers, or will the pressure be too much for Sophia to handle?
