Alyvia Tippin is slowly finding her way as the Courier for The Merry Maids but their last mission on Jubilee broke open something in her memories that couldn't stay buried. It's time to tell her team where their Courier came from, and the truth isn't pretty.
She isn't the only one with stories to tell.
For The Merry Maids, the past can't seem to stay in the past as the team is targeted by people they know. Their deadly scavenger hunt in search of the disassembled Starkiller pieces is being haunted by people The Merry Maids used to trust.
When Alyvia left behind the safety of the Academy, she didn't realize how risky it would be to follow her dream of flying among the stars. Now that The Merry Maids are becoming the family she always wanted, there is nothing she wouldn't risk for them.
Even if the risk is to herself.

Now that she's discovered more about her abilities, the Council seems determined to add even bigger changes to her life. Despite The Merry Maids' protests, the Council wants Alyvia to train with the Shadows, to figure out how her Amplifier skills could be useful to their team.
At least she can stop worrying about her best friend now that she knows he is one of the Shadows.
As The Merry Maids' quest to find the Starkiller pieces nears completion, their course is set to collide again with Maks, and all of the horrors Lyv thought she left behind when she escaped Cayberra.
Change is inevitable.
Alyvia just hopes her team can survive.

On the day the riders came to town, they kidnapped Kella and brought her to Lord Perrin’s keep. To win her freedom, she must cure Perrin’s son from the magic poisoning his blood. Where Kella is from, it is dangerous if people find out that you are a magic-user. That’s why she and her mother had never settled in one spot for long—as soon as rumors started circulating about her abilities, she had to disappear fast. She never learned how to properly use her gifts. But at Perrin's keep she meets Taroy, who is tasked with guarding against her escape. He wants to protect her and keep her safe, but Kella is on her own when it comes to the magic that must be worked. In a race against time, Kella begins her journey to master the magic within and save Perrin's son—despite her fear that she is just not good enough to perform such complicated magic. Untested is a fantasy story for young adults that follows a young woman's journey of discovering that believing in yourself is a magic of its own.
