Syn must now return to the Garden to save a loved one held captive by a madman and the odds are against her. The secret world is overrun by the terrifying Creepers. Her one-time allies have turned their backs on her. And worst of all, the healing powers of the Garden are no more. This time Synthia fears fighting alone, without respite from her life-threatening illness.
The last time Syn visited The Garden, death was held at bay.

No One Dies in the Garden of Syn (Garden of Syn #1)
Release Date: April 26th 2016
Synthia (Syn) Wade is a teenage girl who struggles with cystic fibrosis, an incurable life-threatening disease. One day she is pushed into a pond by an unseen figure and wakes up in a new world – a mysterious garden where illness and death don’t exist.
Welcomed by the garden’s residents and now free of her symptoms, Syn decides to stay. But, before long, she realizes that this apparent utopia holds many dangers and dark secrets.
Surrounding the garden is a fog that Syn is warned never to enter. She encounters bizarre creatures that defy reason. And always lurking in the shadows is a masked woman – a woman who may have a connection to the disappearance of Syn’s parents many years ago. A woman whom no one will speak of, but whom everyone fears.
While No One Dies in the Garden of Syn, Syn will soon discover that some fates are worse than death.
Beth and I hold our flares in front of us for protection, but they are of course useless. The Creeper snaps its mouth shut and stares into my frightened eyes, then at my Beth’s. Its putrid breath nauseates me.
“We don’t want to hurt you,” I tell it in desperation, using the kindest voice I can. Perhaps it will recognize the tone of sincerity. The Creeper looks from me to Beth and back to me. Either this is working or he’s trying to decide which one of us to eat first.
Blood from the Creeper’s wounded shoulder has splattered my face. The cop is on his knees, holding a revolver with a smoking barrel. The beast faces him defiantly and I don’t dare breathe. Before the cop can shoot again, the Creeper spreads its wings, flies high into the red sky, circles around, and descends back in our direction. No, I’m wrong. Not our direction. Straight for the cop! He digs his talons into the man’s shoulders and whisks him into the sky. I close my eyes and cover my ears until his blood-curdling screams are out of earshot.
