Angel on High ♦ As the newest member of his order, Koji is eager to learn what it means to be an Observer. But looking and listening lead to trouble when he spots danger and overhears secrets.

This serial in ten parts is a prequel to Christa Kinde’s Threshold Series [Zonderkidz]. More details here.
Angels All Around ♦ When she was seven years old, Prissie Pomeroy fell in love with the mailman. Angels and demons collide over West Edinton, a small town where not everyone is what they seem.

Angels in Harmony ♦ Starched and pressed. Ragged and distressed. Poised and polite. Bouncing and bright. Angels have always served in pairs, but Baird is sure there must be some mistake when Kester shows up on his doorstep. The vividly energetic redhead couldn’t have been more different from his genteel new apprentice. Yet their rocky beginnings give way to a unique balance, proving that friendship can flourish in the unlikeliest of places, given time, trust, and the Twelve Days of Christmas. More details here.
Angels on Guard ♦ Guardian angels must guard their hearts, or they’ll be tempted to Fall. Even after three years, Prissie Pomeroy’s guardian angel only understood part of what it meant to watch over one precious life. The rest he learned on the day he almost lost her. In this companion story to the Threshold Series, scars are bared, fears begin and end, and angels fall. More details here.
