Poet Parker put the past behind her. At least she thought she did.Life on the streets wasn’t what she had in mind for her forever, and she jumped at the chance of joining Mystic Caravan Circus when an invitation was extended. She didn’t look back.That was 10 years ago, and now Poet is going back to the exact area she used to haunt, and she’s nervous. The friends she left behind are scattered. Some are dead. Some have moved on to other things. Some turned out to be something else entirely. Others simply disappeared into the wind.Unfortunately for Parker, forgetting isn’t easy...especially when a group of banshees start infringing on Mystic Caravan’s territory, and the creatures seemingly have ties to the people Poet left behind.Between the reapers also working on the case, a crazy family called the Grimlocks who can’t stay out of trouble, and the guilt weighing Poet down given the way she fled, she has her hands full.Someone is controlling the banshees, stealing girls from the streets, and creating a merry band of monsters. It’s up to Poet to find out who its is and protect two street girls who remind her of herself.Poet doesn’t want to look back but she has no choice...what she finds might be more evil than she ever imagined. 1.

The Mystic Caravan Circus is a place of magic and mayhem. Unfortunately for Poet Parker these days, it's also packed full of lies. It's been more than a week since she found out an unsightly secret: Her boss Max is her boyfriend's father. Despite giving Max an ultimatum, he's yet to tell Kade Denton the truth, and that's left Parker in a sticky situation. When the circus goes to Nebraska, Poet can't dwell on her personal problems for long because a body is found in a nearby field and it's missing arms, legs and eyes. Everyone agrees there's something off about the death - other than the obvious that is. But no one can figure out what kind of force the folks of Mystic Caravan are facing off with next. Between the emotional distress, her best friend Luke threatening to release embarrassing photographs, and a local police presence that is suspicious, Poet has her hands full. That's on top of a new clown that makes everyone suspect he's up to no good even as he leaves the female population salivating. The clues come together slowly, and when the end comes, the enemy is someone no one saw coming. What happens when the face of evil looks like a victim? And, more importantly, what happens when all of the lies are eradicated and Poet is stripped bare and forced to tell the truth? It's another fun-filled outing for the Mystic Caravan Circus - as long as everyone survives to see another day, that is. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly.

Mystic Caravan Circus is in flux.Things are shifting in the organization, new faces are joining the fray, and manager Poet Parker isn’t certain how to deal with it. Unfortunately for her, she doesn’t have time to figure it out. Kentucky is on the horizon, and a roadside accident that claims a family has caught Poet’s attention. She’s haunted by what she sees...and dreams that show her nothing but snapping teeth and flowing blood.They’ve been to the area before - Mammoth Caves is a big draw - but something appears to be amiss. It isn’t long until Poet realizes exactly what that something is...vampires. They’re nesting and taking over the entire town.Vampires are nothing new when fighting monsters with a paranormal circus. These vampires, however, are different. They’re stronger...and faster...and deadlier. In fact, they’re something older and more ruthless, and Poet has no idea how to take on this new enemy.When the vampires come for one of Mystic Caravan’s own, the time for debate is over. They live as a family. They’ll die as one, too, if need be. Poet has fought wars before but this one is going to get bloody. It’s going to take everyone working together to overcome this enemy. Even then nothing is guaranteed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/181570/bk_acx0_181570_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Northern California beckons the Mystic Caravan crew and they’re looking forward to some down time after their previous stop. Emotions are running high and the workers are desperate to return to their normal lives. Poet Parker and Kade Denton, for instance, have a new camper to move into and they’re both excited at the prospect of an adventure that has nothing to do with monsters. All that changes on their first night in a new camp when wendigo howls fill the air and trouble comes knocking at their metaphorical door. One wendigo is nothing to worry about but when ghosts start calling every night, only maintaining a distance because of the dreamcatcher, things take a turn for the worse. That’s when the ghosts start invading Poet’s dreams, leaving her on the precipice of death without outside intervention. All roads lead to a place called Falk, a forgotten logging town that died during the Great Depression. It seems the town is long gone but a bevy of ghosts remain, as does a secret so terrible that the entire foundation of the Mystic Caravan world is about to be rocked. A fight is coming, and both sides are readying for battle. For Poet, things aren’t as easy as they seem, though. What happens when the monster you think you’re fighting isn’t a monster at all and the so-called victims are the ones who need to be taken down? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly.

The show must go on...even when monsters are afoot. Poet Parker is Romani by birth and a fortune teller by choice. As a member of Mystic Caravan Circus, she's spent the past 10 years using her psychic talents to tell people what their future holds by day and hunting paranormal monsters by night. You see, Mystic Caravan is more than just a circus - it's also a force of good in a world that needs help fighting evil. Poet is set in her ways - and happy with her life - until Kade Denton shows up and upends the entire operation. He's loud and proud - and Poet doesn't like anyone telling her what to do. As the new head of security, Kade thinks his only job is going to be tackling drunken revelers when they get out of hand. He's in for a rude - and bloody - awakening. When monsters strike and the truth comes out, Kade finds he has to learn on the job with Poet as his somewhat reluctant instructor. Sparks are flying - both real and figurative - and when a truly terrible beast targets the circus for extermination, it's all magical hands on deck for the final showdown. Some things are born evil, but the people in Mystic Caravan were born to fight it. Prepare to be amazed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly.

Mystic Caravan Circus is heading for the Midwest...and their first stop is Michigan. Hemlock Cove, to be exact. Poet Parker is looking forward to what she believes will be a quiet time. Hemlock Cove isn’t big, after all, and Mystic Caravan is essentially serving as the centerpiece for a paranormal festival in a town where everyone pretends to be witches. There’s just one problem...real witches are afoot, and they’re unbelievably powerful.When a body drops close to the circus grounds, Poet finds herself facing off with local law enforcement, the town’s only reporter, and an elderly witch who is set in her ways...and knows exactly how she’s going to do things no matter who agrees with her or not.Yes, Poet is about to interact with the Winchester witches, and who comes out on top is anybody’s guess. The only thing both factions know is that they have to work together to uncover a killer and keep their true natures under wraps. That’s easier said than done, especially when Nellie and Aunt Tillie join forces and decided to take control of the situation.It’s a battle for supremacy, with Mystic Caravan in one corner and the Wicked Witches of the Midwest in the other. Both sides are going to come out swinging...and cursing.Place your bets. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly.

Mystic Caravan Circus is heading to the West Coast, and while everyone is happy for the change of scenery, there's a pall settling over the group. Poet and Kade are in a good place and planning for a change, but it's something Poet can't focus on because she feels as if someone is watching...and whoever it is has evil in his or her heart. The festival location is different, and instead of space, the circus denizens have festival workers and artisans on every side. They're open and exposed, and hiding their secret has never been more important. When one of their own goes missing, Poet is determined to figure out exactly what's going on. The answers won't be easy, though, and there are all different types of evil. A fight is coming, and the enemy is different from anything they've ever faced. They're outnumbered and might find themselves outmaneuvered. Who will survive? More importantly, who will be lost to something even worse than death? Sometimes death really is better. 1.

Look out Sin City, here comes the Mystic Caravan Circus. The city that never sleeps has something lurking in the darkness and Poet Parker can't decide if it's friend or foe. The rich history of the area comes into play when research uncovers a mine disaster more than 100 years in the past...and a tragic outcome that still haunts the locale to this day. Between dust storms bringing forth a creature with glowing red eyes, screams in the desert and Poet's increasing conviction that they're not alone, the team has their hands full. That's on top of the fact that Max decides now is the time to make his move and get to know his son - who also happens to be Poet's boyfriend - in a new light and the unwelcome realization that Luke has seemingly become obsessed with gambling. Poet's attention is split in numerous directions, although Luke's quagmire is closest to her heart. She wants to help her best friend, even as he spirals out of control. He's not the same best friend she's spent the past few years loving, but she's determined to get him back...even if it means facing off with some of Las Vegas' most perilous residents. The mystical world of the circus is due to collide with the dangerous underbelly of the gambling world and the two sides might not be as far apart as they initially assume. When the dust storm settles - and the final battle is upon them - more than one person will be in danger...and Poet will have to make a hard choice to protect those she loves while sacrificing someone else to the unending darkness. It's the ultimate game, but money isn't the only thing at risk. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/097488/bk_acx0_097488_sample.mp3.

Poet Parker his having a rough time of it...and then some. She owes her boss Max Anderson everything for saving her from a life on the streets, but Mystic Caravan's favorite psychic is struggling because that loyalty caused her to lose a shot at true love. When the circus hits Brigham City, the nature lovers in the troupe are looking forward to visiting the Great Salt Lake while Poet can't shake the feeling that someone - or rather some dark thing - is watching her. Her discomfort doesn't ease back at the circus, where Kade Denton is busy pretending she doesn't exist while he grapples with the truth about his parentage. When a local boy goes missing, the police show up at the circus and announce that everyone is a suspect. The suspicion only grows when the missing boy turns up alive in an adjacent field. Even after returning him to his parents, the police refuse to back down and Poet finds the walls closing in. Between a shady cabin in the woods, local legends about saltwater monsters and angry ghosts that may be waging war on outsiders, and Kade's inability to stay away even though his anger still festers, Poet has her hands full. As always, though, the show must go on. The circus runs like a well-oiled machine...until trouble comes calling. Poet finds it's difficult to straddle the line between magical demands and emotional reality and when the enemy becomes clear she finds she might be the ultimate target. Can Mystic Caravan's band of merry mischief makers hold it together long enough to take down another foe? Only time will tell whether Poet's happy ending is within her reach...or if death with find her first. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly.
