The 8th Day
Adventure, magic, and Arthurian legend combine in a roller-coaster ride of secrets and mythology. When Jax Aubrey’s father is killed in a car accident, a mysterious stranger shows up claiming to be his guardian. Jax isn’t thrilled; Riley Pendare never buys groceries, keeps to himself, and is full of secrets. Soon Jax discovers an eighth day—a day between Wednesday and Thursday, known as Grunsday—that only descendants of Merlin, Arthur, and the Knights of the Round Table can pass through. Evangeline, a girl who only lives on Grunsdays, becomes the target of those hoping to destroy the normal seven-day week, and it’s up to Jax and Riley to protect her. The adventure starts early and whizzes along at a brisk clip, with more about Jax’s past and the legend of Grunsday unfolding as the novel continues.
