The books below are presented in the order in which they were written:
Brinley has spent most of her life lost in her own imagination, teaching bullfrogs to do gymnastics and pretending to be invisible. Now, when a magic bell from another world summons her across time and space on a journey to find her mother, she will discover real friendship, face true evil, and overcome her greatest fears in order to save the ones she loves.
When Brinley arrives in Aberdeen, she finds that all is not well. The Magemother—guardian of the mages—is missing. Hugo, a reluctant prince, is on a quest to find her. Together, Hugo and Brinley team up with an eccentric young bird keeper named Tabitha and set off to solve the mystery of the missing Magemother. Just maybe, Brinley will find the answers to her own past along the way...
Tabitha is pulled into an adventure all her own in this short follow up to The Mage and the Magpie.
Tabitha, whose job it is to keep an eye on things, is doing her job a little too well one night and finds herself alone with Archibald when he is kidnapped by the Queen of the Nymph Kingdom. When she tries to save him, she finds out that there is more behind the Queen's actions than meets the eye. In order to save her friend, she must navigate a series of tests, face her worst nightmare, and learn to understand the secrets of her own heart.
In one summer Brinley has gone from small town girl to Magemother, a powerful figure in the magical kingdom of Aberdeen. Now she must find the missing mages and restore their power before the evil festering in the Wizard's Ire has a chance to escape. Meanwhile her newest mage is drawn into a battle for his soul that may just tear him apart.
The sequel to The Mage and the Magpie, this story also takes place after the events of The Empty Throne.
In this epic conclusion to the Magemother trilogy, Brinley ventures into the upside-down world of Inveress with a traitor at her side. Meanwhile, trapped inside the Panthion, Hugo searches for the truth that will save him from destruction. Together, they will find danger and death, loyalty and friendship. Together, they must save the world, and cross the bridge to nowhere.
The Bridge to Nowhere is the third and final volume in Austin J. Bailey's Magemotherseries: an epic middle-grade fantasy adventure series with witches, shapeshifters, mystery, cliffhangers, and awesome kids.
