She has been Marked as special by the vampire Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers.

Sol is a highly gifted six-year-old; his adoring mother believes he is destined for greatness. Yet he is also unsettling, chillingly un-childlike. He bears the same birthmark as his father, grandmoth- er and great-grandmother had before him. When Sol and his family make an unexpected trip to Germany, terrible secrets start to emerge. Narrated by children in each generation of the family, "Fault Lines" traces their history back through the years, from California to New York, from Haifa to Toronto and Munich. As dormant family secrets are awakened, shock waves reverberate from a hidden past into a fragile present. Domestic in focus and epic in scope, "Fault Lines" is a vibrant, richly drawn and captivating piece of storytelling. It shows what can happen when past and present collide. Birthmarks are not all that can be passed down through a family line

But it soon becomes clear that defence is no longer enough. The queen has a dragon on her side, and is plotting a terrible revenge on all those who have defied her. A daring plan, a reckless quest and a mysterious prophecy text the friends' wits and courage to the limit as they plunge into an adventure packed with suspense, shocks and danger and ending at last in the battle that will decide Rondo's future forever. Praise for The Key To Rondo: " ... a very neatly written distillation of fairytale elements that combine, collapse and reappear like a dream had after an evening spent with the Brothers Grimm, Madame Leprince de Beaumont and Walt Disney. Talking pigs, malevolent ducks and menacing swans bustle through its pages, family mysteries are solved, allies are found and lost, and extravagant evil and deception is punished. Great fun."--Sydney Morning Herald
