Civil war is brewing in the depths of Katie’s heart.

When her brother Jack is presumed dead after a ferocious jungle storm, the fourteen-year-old is scared, but more than that she’s angry, furious that a so-called loving God could do this to her family. When performing a routine search-and-rescue mission with hopes of finding Jack, her helicopter malfunctions and crashes into the labyrinth of the Congo rain forest. Suddenly alone, she must brave the terrors of the wilderness. What was a nightmare becomes a reality and Katie knows that if she ever wants to make it home alive she is going to have to be broken–broken like clay in the hands of the Potter.

Their former selves became shadows, and in the shadows they lost their souls. 

Lizzie and Zach are your average American twins–they were, at least, until they found out that their long-dead father was not the man they thought he was. He was an astronaut, they knew. That he was an international spy–they had no idea.

Movement. Shadows. Disappearing persons. These all lead to the dark, dead-end alley beside their new house, in a city their father had never been to. Confused, and angry at their dad, the twins refuse to follow in his footsteps. Until their dog, the last gift he ever gave them, disappears, and they decided to investigate. What–and who–the alley holds will change their destiny.
