There’s a man-made storm coming, like a rip in the world, and it’s called the Cusp. 

Struggling to fit into the destiny she’s accepted, Nalena Maxwell has been left with one objective: she must find her murdered grandfather’s Memory. Stolen and hidden away by her own father over seventeen years ago, the Memory could be the key to ending the Cusp and destroying the Ianua’s rival community, The Fury.

Driven by each individual’s selfish desires, The Fury has always lacked the loyalty and organization it needs to be an actual force of power.

Until now.

Someone masterminded the Fury’s massive attack on the Ianua, slaughtering twelve of their thirteen community leaders, the Addos. Now there are rumors that the 13th Cura, to which Nali belongs, has gone to the Fury, manipulating the last Addo in order to control the other 12 Curas.

As the Cusp brings the Fury and their own communities against them, Nalena’s Cura must preserve the Ianua, but finding the key to the Cusp isn’t as simple as it seems. 

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle :

There is something about Misty’s writing and this series that is begging to be published.

I really believe this world that Misty has built for me. The characters are ALL brilliantly written.

Zane is absolutely hilarious. He knows his stuff, but he can be the biggest larikan.

Mark and Brandon, Garrett’s youngest brothers, they get issued orders , do as they are told , but in their down time they are bickering and pounding each other like normal boys, yet they are Contego.

Nok, a new character, I want me a Nok, he is the funniest little fellow and he isn’t meant to be funny, he is Verita. He pops up from his many tunnels, a little guy of few words. I did laugh out loud in a scene to do with a Free Ball and Nok and a hole. One of the traits of the Verita is the master of disguise, lol!

There was a scene that had me all, well, I don’t know quite what the words to use. Nervous, agitated, not able to sit still whilst reading, due to what Misty had this bunch of new characters doing. Whahhhh!!! Or Whooop...whoooooop!

Misty writes such a wonderful detailed plot, she really does cover all her bases. I have pages of notes when reading both her books in this series.

The imagination and originality are to be commended. I am rather baffled as to why this series has not been snapped up by a publisher. It’s kind of a wonder of the YA book world for me.

There are more of the awesome curveballs thrown into the story that Misty loves writing and I love being flung about in another direction. Lovely twists and one I didn’t see coming, and I think quite rightly so.

Awwwww, some sad parts that had me tearing up and the funny laugh out loud moments.

I absolutely adore Nalena and Garrett. They are just so spot on for each other.

I am looking forward to reading book 3 as there is so much more story ready to burst from Misty’s imagination . The Furys have unleashed trouble and who can the Ianua trust??

Well, this is a rather big question!

Visually in my mind Cornerstone and Keystone run like little movies. Action and humour, fast paced, story continually moving in a new direction, but it all weaves together nicely.

All the characters keep me smiling or surprising me. Misty really has a wonderful gift in writing.

There is this beauty about certain parts of Misty’s imagination, when translated into her storyline. I am trying to think of the right words. It’s like she has a spiritual side to her with the whole thing with the Ianua and Addo, Nok, Veritas ,and these groups that have to keep the world in balance and this group of loveable characters that bring this story really to life.


“Great. It’s the tampon brigade,” Zane says. He leans over to whisper in my ear, “Beware, the evil twin.”

“Holy crap,” I say. Zane just turns and grins at me. He farts at the same time.

“Now you’ve got it,” he says.

“I knew one day my prince would come.” Zane puffs in a really weak, girly voice. He bats his eyes at me.

Zaneen and Zane shoot down through the ceiling almost immediately, in a rain of dirt and leaves and pebbles, wrapped in each other’s arms and locked in a kiss. They scramble to their feet and skitter apart, gaping at one another.

“Dang it! I thought you were Robin!” Zane snaps, spitting on the ground.

“I thought you were Garrett!” Zaneen says, jumping around and wiping her face as if it’s been doused with acid. It takes a few seconds before we all realize that no one else is coming through the hole.
