ebook CoverThe Phantom of New York, volume 1 – Peter and the Crown
by A.L. Janney
Genre: MG/YA Adventure
Release Date: December 2017


‘This is a story about vigilantes and magic.

About prophecy and hope.

About a boy and his hotel.

When twelve-year-old Peter Constantine wakes up in the Crown Hotel with a new identity, life is over as he knows it. But perhaps that’s not such a bad thing…

A dangerous man Peter only knows as “The Client” is after his family, so they’ve relocated to New York City. With help from unlikely friends living at the glamorous hotel, including the ghost on the tenth floor, Peter’s new life begins. Soon, however, he learns of a plot to destroy his new home, a plot only the Phantom can foil.

Peter and the Crown is the first book in the Phantom of New York series, an adventure for readers aged ten and up. If you like smart, funny characters and “can’t put it down” escapades, then you’ll love Alan Janney’s Phantom of New York series.’

Ava idly put her hand in the water and swayed it around against the gentle current of the river, which like her, seemed to relax in the tranquility of the woods. She felt something brush against her fingers, she looked down to find an array of colours, as her hand scattered a shoal of fish into disarray. Leaving her hand in the river motionless, some of the fish came up to her and started to tickle her with the brushes of their tails and bodies.

A fish rising to the surface caught her attention, it was floating unnaturally on its side, which baffled Ava. Than another one joined it and then another until at least ten fishes were bobbing along the surface, unmoving. A scene from ‘War of the Worlds’ flashed into her head, where dead bodies floated down the river unmoving, like these fish, whose eyes, with their blank stares, shot daggers through Ava.

Jumping up, she felt the air rush out of her and the familiar tightening of her chest begin. What had just happened?  Horrified she let out a strangled cry. Wiping river water from her face, only to realize it was her tears wetting her face. Trying to get distance from the dead fish, she tried to jump back across the river but without the momentum she had before she hit the muddy side of the bank.

In her frustration and panic she blindly scrambled up the bank, mindless to her ripping muddy school uniform. All she wanted, no needed, was to get away from the river and the blank eyes of death. Her dream came rushing back to her and she found she didn’t have enough air in her lungs to run. She just crumpled down to the forest floor, silently sobbing, waiting to wake up from this nightmare also.

She was vaguely aware of movement around her. The sounds of the woods seemed to engulf her as one of their own, as she blended in by her unmoving form. She heard footsteps and tensed, not wanting to have to try and explain everything. It took a moment to realise that who or whatever was making those footsteps was not human, so she started to relax.

Feeling hot breath on her face and a light snort, she blinked away her tears to see a deer staring down at her, its expression not too dissimilar as her own, surprise mingled with fear. But the deer did not back away, and Ava was too caught in her downward spiral to care all that much. It bent its head lower and she felt its lips brush against her forehead nibbling on some leaf or something which had landed on her. Still she lay unmoving and uncaring as a small voice in the back of her head was telling her there was a deer, a wild animal, so close.

The deer had stopped nibbling and Ava carried in her self-pity, which turned into self-disgust when she realized how pitiful she was. Then she heard a distinctive thumping sound, as if something had hit the ground hard. Turning her head to the side, it took her a few minutes to blink back her tears again, so she could survey the woods.

What she found was the deer’s eyes staring at her. Startled she jumped back, but even though she had made a sudden movement, the deer stayed motionless on the floor. The screaming started to build up in her head, it was so loud. Everything was dying around her, and she didn’t know why. She did know it was her fault, she was causing it. As in her dream, she was the only thing standing when everything she touched lay motionless, now and forever more.

Rowan transported us back to our cabana behind the palace. Of course, we had a formal room in the castle itself, but that was more for show. Rowan and I actually lived in this small round structure made of bamboo. It was simple, cozy, and perfect.

Once the red smoke disappeared, I noticed the thin line of moonlight peeping through the bamboo walls. After that, I noticed the touch of gentle kisses along my jawline. Rowan.

“I thought we were getting ready for the festival?” I asked. “There’s a lot at stake here.” Including my life.

“Caster culture is all about appreciating the moment. You never know what the next day will bring, let alone the next hour.” Rowan kissed a slow path down my throat. “And we have at least an hour here.” Rowan nipped at my neck, sending a jolt of desire through me. “And I want to take this moment with my mate.” He pulled my body flush against his.

I pursed my lips and did some quick calculations. “When does the Monkey Festival begin?”

“It started hours ago, but the chance to summon the trickster gods is still quite some time away.”

Rowan’s kisses were distracting, but I wasn’t sure at all about this Caster concept of enjoying the moment. At least, not this particular moment. Tonight’s festival took place at Trickster’s Haven, a village that was halfway across the continent. Although Rowan was strong with transport spells, it still might take us some time to get there. “Are you sure we shouldn’t leave now?”

“Positive. We’ve plenty of time before midnight. That’s when the summoning takes place.” Lifting my hand, he gently brushed his lips across my ring finger and mating band. A flutter of excitement moved through me. It was true. Being held by Rowan was something to savor. “Perhaps we could wait just a few minutes more.”

Rowan gave me his lopsided grin. “Now, you’re making sense.”
