Heroes aren’t born, they’re made
Like everyone else her age, Kourtney Woods struggles to balance: maintaining decent grades, having a social life, and getting enough sleep.
With one particular exception – Kourtney doesn’t have a social life – she has superpowers.
Five months ago, Kourtney Woods discovered she has unnatural abilities. A destructive combination of telepathy and teleportation, making her Skylight City’s newest Lightermember and the leader of her very own team of supers.
Unbeknown to the rest of her squad, Kourtney is her school’s infamous outcast.
This social standard inevitably creates unforeseen conflict amongst the team members – rivalries soon bloom within, and discord threatens to erupt.
However, when high profiled villains start raining down on Skylight City like wildfire, Kourtney’s team of high school supers are forced to put aside their differences and work together.
To save their home from a villain they never saw coming, they’ll need every bit of superpower they have.
This is The Rise Of Kidwolf.
A modern retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.
After six months of being away, Rosalind returns to her hometown of Rosewood, but a lot has changed. Rumors are going around, and dark secrets are revealed, and on top of it all, there's been talk about a mysterious wolf roaming the forest she calls home. Who's lying? Who can she trust? And will she make it out alive?
Noah Hart and Theodore Garner could not be more different.
Their similarities start and end with their gradually-ending senior year at Woodside High School, a place where they walk the halls in a perfectly happy completely-ignoring-each-other manner.
As a half-Japanese trans kid living in Georgia, Noah has his own whirlwind of issues on the daily… and he certainly doesn’t need Theo and his “band of goons” adding to the mix.
Theo is eagerly awaiting a lacrosse scholarship at a college where he’s free from his predictably overwhelming parents.
But when the country is plunged into a sudden shut down due to a monstrous solar storm, their issues become very similar.
Despite how nauseating the idea is to both of them, Noah and Theo find themselves forced to cooperate in order to survive after stumbling into one another amidst an apocalyptic America… but the change in feelings was certainly not mandatory.

A long time ago, this world was very different. Magic existed, and monsters roamed free. In this old world, there dwelt a people named the Kin. These people were warriors, men with abilities no other's possessed.
They alone stood against the tide of darkness that threatened to drown the world so many decades ago. But now, there is only one left.
He is the last of the Kin, and a great burden falls upon his shoulders. His powers are the only thing able to save the world.
But more than demons work against him. The king of Malory, an evil ruler called Marix, seeks him out, wishing to utilise his skills for his own ends.
