Ryan Dalton and Andrew S. Chilton sign in San Diego

Arizona author Ryan Dalton starts his young adult science fiction trilogy with The Year of Lightning, in which 15-year-old twins Malcolm and Valentine Gilbert discover the abandoned old house across the street from them in their new town holds a secret machine – one that can control lightning. How can they possibly protect themselves and their classmates from freak lightning storms? And who controls the skies, and why are they attacking the town?

Publishers Weekly’s review of Andrew Chilton’s updated fairy tale middle grade book The Goblin's Puzzle states he “combines the unpredictability of a Monty Python skit with traces of the Brothers Grimm as he zigzags among the stories of an unnamed young slave, who escapes his master and soon becomes tied to a mischievous goblin; Plain Alice, the daughter of a sage desperate to follow in her father’s footsteps; and Princess Alice, slated to rule West Stanhope if she can elude both a dragon and marriage to the treacherous Duke Geoffrey.”
