Black Dog, Book 1 Half-bloods with Thierry's skill set are given two options. They can join the conclave's marshal program, or they can pack their bags. Turn down the job offer, and you've just shredded your residency pass for the mortal realm and booked yourself a one-way ticket to Faerie. Texas is the only home Thierry has ever known, and she's not going anywhere. Even if it means following in her notorious father's footsteps as a peacekeeper. But pinning on the badge opens her eyes to the fact sometimes fae need protection too, and that sometimes humans are the real monsters.

Take a cultural peek into Jamaica, an island in the West Indies. This story 'Ackees, a Spider, and ... uh ... Breda Anansi?' is presented in English and Patois. Dialogues in the story give an idea of the banana spider as well as ackee, which is the national fruit that makes up the national dish along with saltfish. Breda Anansi, a folktale character passed down from African folks settling in the island in the 1600s, is featured in a fresh tale. The anthropoid animals, in the Breda Anansi tale, communicate mainly in the Patois/Patwa dialect. The handful of dialects is included in a glossary for those wanting to get acquainted with the casual language in the island. Illustrations include artworks by Sanai Hardison (9 years old) and Skylah Simms (4 years old).
