Blurb for Zenko 

Melody Hastings has gone missing. 
Sick and suffering from a teenage mishap, Melody is a child in a woman’s body. The town of Woodland Creek turns out to help her father find her—but with Running Deer State Forest in their backyard, the search is going to be hard. 
Ava Tsukino knows where she is. 
No one will believe her if she tells them, because Ava harbors a secret like so many in Woodland Creek. She is a kami, a Japanese spirit who takes on the shape of a red fox. Ava knows there is very little time to find Melody, because someone is after the woman’s blood at the full moon. 
Blaze Riordan can find her. 
But he and his father are under the thumb of his grandmother. Forced to follow a path she’s picked for him, he feels trapped and afraid to break out her safe, predictable, planned world. He wants to get away, but doesn’t know what he can do to prove he’s his own man. 
Until a little red fox leads him deep into the woods, begging his help to find the missing woman...




Excerpt 

The acorn dropped onto his book, and he was immediately confused. He was sitting in a grove of maples. He looked up, but not in time to save his heart from jumping into his throat. 
Ava Tsukino dropped out of the tree and landed in front of him. 
Blaze tried with all his might not to scream, but it really didn’t work. He caught his heart with his hand and tried to calm down. 
Ava laughed and sat down next to him. “Sorry.” She wasn’t; she was full-on laughing. “I’ve seen you here a few times.” 
“I’ve never seen you,” he answered. 
“You’ve never looked up.” 
Blaze gaped at her. “You still climb trees like that?” 
“I never stopped.” Ava’s honey eyes twinkled with pure mischief. “I like to sit up there and watch people. You are quite the studier.” 
“I love reading.” 
“And football if I remember.” 
“Not even. I’m going to quit the team...well, as soon as I get the guts up to tell my grandmother.” 
Ava turned and studied him carefully. She searched his face and roved over his hair. “You loved the game growing up.” 
“Until Grandmother made it mandatory.” 
“If she hadn’t?” 
Blaze tapped on the book he had in his lap. “I would have outgrown it naturally. Instead of resenting it and her.” 
Ava picked up one of the other books he had with him. “Our grandparents are so very different.” 
“What are you studying?” 
Ava laughed again, and Blaze remembered that one of his favorite sounds as a kid was the sound of Ava Mizuki Tsukino laughing. It always sounded like windchimes in the distance. “Forestry of course! I love my trees.”
