Sophie Briggs and the Guardians of the Tree

Sophie Briggs and the Guardians of the Tree

Sophie Briggs has made it to her junior year at the School of Roots and Vines, but it isn’t all fun and games for the Defenders.

Change is coming. Some good and some… not so much.

Friends are breaking up – will Sophie have to take sides?

Sophie and Marcus are struggling, too. Marcus is pushing Sophie and the rest of the gang away, worried that being a Templeton will put them all at risk. He thinks he needs to do this by himself.

Does he have to go it alone?

Both Sophie and Marcus have taken on jobs at the EBI, unbeknownst to each other, hoping to help mend a bruised heart. Fate might just have a different plan in store for them.

Something dark is brewing again in Mammoth Cave. We’re pretty sure it’s going to take more than Marcus to put an end to it.

Can Sophie convince Marcus and the rest of the Defenders that they are better together so they can prevent another disaster?

About the Author
Martha Carr

with Michael Anderle

Okay, I'm a late bloomer who's a big DC comics fan and spent my childhood summers on the Jersey shore in the U.S. but have had a weird wanderlust to live in different parts of America ever since. That's enough about me. Need to feel inspired today? Looking for something to make you root for an ordinary hero? I'm all about that in everything I write.

I love a good tale that makes me wonder about things and I love a story even more that leaves me feeling inspired or like I'm capable of doing more than I realized. That's my goal with everything I've ever written. Some of the stories I tell involve twisting, turning thrillers and others have a lot of magic.

There's something to be said for getting lost in another world and coming out the other side feeling a little better about yourself or the possibilities in front of you. That's basically the best part of life in a nutshell, no matter what kind of story I'm setting out to tell.
