The Gossamer Sphere, Book One: The Gossamer CrownBy: Melissa Conway
Format: ePub Un-encrypted (DRM free)
Aboard a scientific drilling vessel taking core samples from an ancient impact crater, student intern Kevin Guzman has one of his prescient feelings just before an earthquake sends a tsunami radiating out from under the ship. Now a strange woman has requested his help in saving the world. Sheâd like him to believe that millions of years ago an asteroid struck the earth and converted it into an enormous communication satellite for the denizens of some distant galaxy. But the messages havenât been coming through, so the Gossamer Sphere is about to âtuneâ itself-and destroy the planetâs crust in its efforts. Kevin is skeptical, but given the odd things that have been happening to him lately, intrigued. All Caitlin OâConnor has to do is demonstrate her shapeshifting abilities, however, and heâs a believer. Caitlin introduces him to Lizbeth, the magicianâs daughter with nimble pickpocketâs fingers, and Zach, whose weapon of choice is sarcasm, but whose martial arts training is more effective. The teens arenât pleased to discover theyâre descended from shapeshifters themselves, and Caitlin isnât exactly endearing herself to them. After centuries of watching those sheâs loved grow old and die, sheâs put up an enigmatic front, but she needs their help finding the Gossamer Crown-the only thing that can stop the destruction. Crafted from the alien biometal that gives the sphere its power, the crown either kills whoever touches it, or changes them forever.

The North Sea
After Zach had gone out of his way to give her that sweet peck on the cheek, Lizbeth thought she wouldn’t be able to fall asleep. The rocking motion of the ship and her bone-deep exhaustion combined to work its magic however, and she woke feeling refreshed, if not exactly fresh in her borrowed clothes.
She had no idea what time it was when she cracked her door and peered out into the corridor. They were supposed to all meet with Bill sometime this morning to figure out the next move.
The door to the cabin across the way opened and Zach leaned out. He held a finger to his lips and swept his other hand for her to join him inside.
“What?” she whispered.
“Come in and tell me if you notice anything different about Kevin,” he said softly.
As soon as she crossed the threshold she sensed it. Kevin was a lump under his utilitarian grey blanket; the only part of him visible was his distinctive mop of brown hair. Lizbeth felt him, though, just like she felt Caitlin and Griffey. It was as if overnight he’d obtained the same sort of tingly aura the shapeshifters had.
