Keita thought that being a princess was nothing but trouble even before the power-hungry Stygians took over the Spectra kingdoms. Now she’s on the run, hunted at every turn, and able to trust only a few other royal exiles. Her Sprite abilities, including the power to change to animal form, are not enough to defeat the Stygians, whose oaths have given them the abilities of all six clans. Only joining forces with the other exiles can give her the strength to change her dangerous life. Christie Valentine Powell's The Spectra books follow Keita and her friends across the clans in this young adult fantasy novel you don't want to miss.


Mira would rather climb mountains alone than hide in the confining village, despite warnings of griffins. She met a griffin, and he didn't harm her—in fact, he saved her life. But his friendship isn’t enough to protect her or her village.


Griffins unlock abilities in their human captives. Mira’s new ability to translate seems useless compared to her friends’ fire, water, and healing—until she discovers that she and her griffin friend can communicate. Their bond threatens griffin culture and human rebels alike. Caught in between, Mira and her griffin must teach their species to communicate before both sides are destroyed.


The world hates dream-roving abilities. To survive, three exiles need a family.

Indra has lived in dreams since her mother’s death. Joining other dreamrovers would tether her to reality, but she’d gain the family she always wanted—if they survive.


Walker escaped court life after his family was executed for dreamroving. Helping other rovers build a new home might make up for his past mistakes.

Fifteen-year-old Norma must decide between her dreams and her family. 

As persecution grows, all three struggle to defend their new family. Hatred runs deep, and escape is no longer an option—not even through dreams.

Coming Soon!


A human soldier and a Spectra healer.

A princess with a forbidden power and a man lost in dreams for a hundred years.

Two girls who need to find their way home.


The Spectra Crown Tales will be a series of fairy tale retellings, with the descendants of the Keita's Wings characters. The books can stand alone or be read together.


Look for them starting 2022.
