“A captivating fantasy story with a well-thought-out plot…”

— Wayne S. Walker, Home School Book Review

“There are some obvious protagonists and some obvious villains, but Gaskins creates a nice ambiguity around several of the key characters. The plot itself is interesting and engaging with multiple levels of motivation that drive it along. Mainly, this is a group-of-friends quest story that is fun and well told.”

— Phanwadee, online reader review

“I enjoyed the book and I am absolutely amazed at how such a young author can write so well. I definitely see her going far in her writing career, and I can’t wait to see what stories she publishes next.”

— Tia, Homeschool Literature.com

Coming to bookstores May 15, 2019. Pre-order your copy today.

Book One: Banished

Haunted by dreams. On a quest for answers.

Christopher Fredrico loved the quiet life of a scholar-in-training. Plenty of spare time to spend with his friends. But the night Crown Prince Tyler came to dinner, everything changed.

Falsely accused of stealing a magical artifact and banished under threat of death, Chris leaves the only home he knows.

But as he and his friends travel towards the coast, they find a riddle that may save a kingdom — or cost them their lives.

Book Two: Hunted

She tried to warn them. They wouldn’t listen.

As a child, Terrin of Xell barely escaped a spirit from the Dark Forest. She knows better than to rely on magic. But with her schoolmate Chris accused of a magical crime he didn’t commit, she couldn’t let him face banishment alone.

So Terrin gets caught up in Chris’s quest to recover an ancient relic, with only magic to guide them.

Naturally, everything goes wrong.

What lurks in the shadows, hunting Terrin and her friends? Or did the magic itself turn against them?

Book Three: Betrayed

How can a knight fight magic?

Trained by the greatest knight in North Raec, Sir Arnold Fredrico dreamed of valiant deeds. Save the damsel. Serve the king.

Dreams change. Now the land teeters at the brink of war. As a fugitive with a price on his head, Arnold struggles to protect his friends.

But their enemy wields more power than the young knight can imagine.

Book Four: Revealed

A gift she never wanted. A curse she can’t escape.

Alone in the dark, Nora of Yorc feels the dungeon walls pressing in. Even worse, the duke’s sorcery weaves itself around her, unseen and deadly. But as the spell tightens, shy, fragile Nora breaks — and something new takes her place.

Or something old beyond memory.

Nora joined this quest to help her friends. But can she stop herself before the wildness within destroys them all?

70+ Things To Do with a Hundred Chart

Do the holidays mess with your schedule? They sure do with ours!

Every year, we get busy. Distracted. Just can’t focus on lessons.

We love easy activities that require minimal preparation so we can pull something out and play when we’re having one of those no-energy days.

If that sounds good to you, too, then you’ll want to check out Denise Gaskins’s new ebook 70+ Things To Do with a Hundred Chart: Number, Shape, and Logic Activities from Preschool to Middle School.

Long years ago, when Denise presented workshops at homeschooling conferences, she used to share a list of seven ways to play with a hundred chart. The all-time most visited post on her Let’s Play Math blog offers 34 playful activities. Now she’s more than doubled that total for this book.

So many ways to play! One of them is sure to be perfect for you and your children.

Take your child on a mathematical adventure with these playful, practical activities.

“Wow … I had to be careful not to get obsessed with doing all the games.

“I so wish I had been taught math like this rather than ‘memorize, memorize’ and ‘that is just the way it is — do it, don’t ask questions.’

“I look forward to using this resource with my granddaughters. They are middle-school and high school level but love to play games. I love challenging their minds, which makes the games great no matter what age or school level.”

— Judy St. John
