THE LEGEND OF THE LOST CHILD
Life has never been easy for Jace, but things have definitely become more complicated. Learning about his new found powers while trying to figure out where he belongs in his new home leaves him more confused than ever. With the constant threat of Elashor looming over him, Jace must learn to master his abilities to protect himself, his friends and his new home.
A journey of finding the missing pieces of the puzzle that will complete the real picture of his life. A quest to find answers to unsolved mysteries and change the dimension of thoughts and find out his history.
A highly engaging and fast-paced read of a kind that will give you a breathtaking reading experience. Like its predecessor, this book also does end on sort of a cliffhanger. While there was more of a curiosity element pertaining to the first ending, the next part of the series promises vengeance or retribution.
Annie O’Connell is a busy mom of four boys, a Family Physician in New York City, and now the author of The Lunar Codex, Book One of the Codex Chronicles.
Wanting to take a break from the real world, she would immerse herself in fantasy genre audiobooks while on long road trips with her 16-year-old son. Ultimately, this passion would help to create her lead character, Jace Northall, and his journey to discover who he truly is.
When she is not saving lives or creating drama for poor Jace, she enjoys traveling with her family, listening to audiobooks, watching cheesy Rom-Coms, and crocheting lopsided blankets

Meet the Neighbors
They say that a person’s earliest memories form around the
age of two. For me, I was three years old.Things prior come back to
me in bits and pieces but are mostly feelings of happiness and love.
My most concrete memory in those fragile first years was “the talk”

twin bed, surrounded by my menagerie of stuffies—Ellie, Dog,
Bunny, Bobo, and half a dozen others there in place but lacking a

talking and knew that something was wrong. Aunt Cora was the
epitome of calm and had an amazing way of making everyone feel comfortable and secure. However,as I listened,I could sensethetears

Islid off my bed and instinctively took Bunny. He was a well-loved
white rabbit my mother had given to me when I was six months old.
Bunny was my most trusted confidant, with a faded blue ribbon
around his neck and a crooked ear from my insatiable habit of rubbing it on my nose when fatigue or fear was near.
Moving closer to the door, I could feel the soft plush of the
baby-blue rugsquishing between my toes. AsIinched my way closer,
I could see them through the small opening in my large wooden
door. Although I don’t remember the full content of the conversation, the tears in Aunt Cora’s eyes and the concerned look on my
UncleRoman’sface as he held her close have stuck withme all these
years. This was the pivotal night of my life. This was the night that
both my parents died, and I became an orphan.
