Collecting comic book issues #1-4, this GRAPHIC NOVEL tells a brand-new story in Rysa Walker's CIRQUE AMERICAN universe! Bestselling author Rysa Walker (Timebound) takes readers on a time-hopping adventure in this stand-alone series set in her CHRONOS Files world. Written by fan favorite Heather Nuhfer (My Little Pony) and featuring pulse-pounding art from Agustin Padilla (Smallville). Nineteen-year-old Clio Dunne has lived a life of secrecy. Her world-saving, time-traveling parents have kept a low profile in a boring, small town...but Clio yearns for her own adventure. In the fall of 1931, Clio packs her bags and heads to the big, modern city of Chicago. While following her dreams of becoming a famous illustrator, Clio's own nascent skills as a time traveler are put to the test. A nasty acquaintance from her parents' past stumbles upon Clio in an unexpected place--the trial of Al Capone. Now Clio must jump through time to keep the past, present, and future safe.
This CHRONOS Files novella gives Timebound readers a glimpse at Kate in another timeline and helps set the stage for Time's Edge, the second book in The CHRONOS Files Series. Kiernan Dunne abandoned his family ties to help Kate fight the Cyrists, and he's never regretted that for one moment. But he doesn't understand why Kate can't remember that night in 1893 Chicago, when she turned back to face the killer chasing them through the smoky corridors of the World's Fair Hotel. Kate placed the CHRONOS key around his neck and made his eight year old self promise to wear it always, and that's a promise Kiernan has never broken. When Kate suddenly vanishes after a Cyrist-engineered time shift, that hidden medallion is Kiernan's only hope for finding her. He returns to the Cyrist fold to look for clues, but his search will lead him back to the question that has haunted him for years--what really happened after he left Kate at the World's Fair Hotel?
From the bestselling author of the Chronos series comes a page-turning novel of time travel, fast-paced action, and history-changing events. When two time-traveling historians cross paths during one of the most tumultuous decades of the twentieth century, history goes helter-skelter. But which one broke the timeline? In 2136 Madison Grace uncovers a key to the origins of CHRONOS, a time-travel agency with ties to her family's mysterious past. Just as she is starting to jump through history, she returns to her timeline to find millions of lives erased--and only the people inside her house realize anything has changed. In 2304 CHRONOS historian Tyson Reyes is assigned to observe the crucial events that played out in America's civil rights movement. But a massive time shift occurs while he's in 1965, and suddenly the history he sees isn't the history he knows. As Madi's and Tyson's journeys collide, they must prevent the past from being erased forever. But strange forces are at work. Are Madi and Tyson in control or merely pawns in someone else's game?
It's never wise to talk to strangers...and that goes double when they're dead. Unfortunately, seventeen-year-old Anna Morgan has no choice. Resting on a park bench, touching the turnstile at the Metro station--she never knows where she'll encounter a ghost. These mental hitchhikers are the reason Anna has been tossed from one foster home and psychiatric institution to the next for most of her life. When a chance touch leads her to pick up the insistent spirit of a girl who was brutally murdered, Anna is pulled headlong into a deadly conspiracy that extends to the highest levels of government. Facing the forces behind her new hitcher's death will challenge the barriers, both good and bad, that Anna has erected over the years and shed light on her power's origins. And when the covert organization seeking to recruit her crosses the line by kidnapping her friend, it will discover just how far Anna is willing to go to bring it down.
A psychotic killer hijacked her mind and her body. She's taking them back. Eighteen-year-old Anna Morgan is on the run from the very government project that created her abilities. Now they seek to weaponize the gift she doesn't want and can't control: the invasion of her mind and her body by spirits, some of whom have their own unusual powers. Her latest "hitcher" is a former top Delphi executive. Unlike Anna's previous guests, this one has taken over, and he's on a personal mission of revenge. The target is Senator Ronald Cregg, a corrupt, power-hungry presidential candidate. One of Delphi's creators, he's now manipulating the public into believing "psychic terrorists" are a scourge to be eliminated. There's only one way to stop him, but Anna draws the line at murder. Pulled into a dark conspiracy, Anna struggles to reclaim her body, mind, and soul as she and the other Delphi psychics join together to fight for their right to exist.
To stop her sadistic grandfather and his band of time travelers from rewriting history, Kate must race to retieve the CHRONOS keys before they fall into the Cyrists' hands, while dealing with her mounting feelings for fellow time-traveler Kiernan.
