Only the Seekers are allowed to journey from their small village into the fantastical, untamed wilderness of their island known as the Wild Realm. Once there, they obtain magical items for the village and use magic to protect and heal the incredible creatures native to the Realm. When one of the elderly Seekers retires, leaving a vacant position, Bryn knows this may be her chance. There's just one problem: Only boys have ever been Seekers. And the training master makes it clear he will not be training a girl. But then Bryn's biggest rival for the Seeker position, a boy named Ari, shows up at her door. He reveals the baby dragon he's been hiding, and the two strike a deal -- if Bryn helps care for the dragon, Ari will share all his training with her. Even as the two bond over their love of magical animals and their secret trips into the Wild Realm, Bryn doesn't completely trust Ari's motives. Especially as she suspects Ari may know more than he's letting on about the enemy clan stirring up unrest in their village. When all these secrets come to a head and the stakes are at their highest, Bryn realizes it's up to her to save her family -- and the Realm." --Ages 8-12.Grades 3-7.

"The moment the plane touched down at Ministro Pistorini Airport in Buenos Aires, Joachim von Hartmann knew in every fiber of his being that he was home. It was almost as if his heart and soul, and even his body, knew it. He had left as a boy of seventeen, twenty-five years before, when he moved to France with his mother, and new French stepfather. Eight years later, he went to England on a lark, which turned into a worthy career for the past seventeen years. His roots are now firmly planted in Europe, but he realized as he breathed the air of Buenos Aires that his heart had remained here"--When Joachim von Hartmann moved from Buenos Aires to Paris with his mother in his late teens, his twin stayed behind... and entered a dark world.

Olivia White has given ten years of her life to her failed magazine, and has come to Paris to reinvent herself. Joachim takes a job working for Olivia as a lark and enjoys the whimsy of a different life. Then he learns the family history he never knew: a criminal grandfather who died in prison, the wealthy father who abandoned him, and the dangerous criminal his twin has become. Stripped of their old roles, Olivia and Joachim are first employer and employee, then friends... then a man and woman who reach a place where the past doesn't matter and only what they are living now is true. -- adapted from jacket

But only a couple of months into his new career, Julian's evening is disrupted by a visitor. Edward, a Polish émigré living in Silverview, the big house on the edge of town, seems to know a lot about Julian's family and is rather too interested in the inner workings of his modest new enterprise.

Silverview is the mesmerizing story of an encounter between innocence and experience and between public duty and private morals.
