Publisher Description

Every time Alora goes to sleep, she wakes up on another world, a magical world, a world that's about to collide with Earth in a very big way. Alora's the only person with the power save them both, only, she's not sure she should.  

Alora's life has been anything but magical. Since her parents died, she and her brother have been on the run from a creepy, doggedly determined social worker. In a few more months she turns eighteen, but until then, they're stuck hiding. It's hardly surprising that she dreams every single night of another world, Terra, where she possesses telekinetic powers.

What Alora can't explain is how, when she breaks her arm in her dreams, she wakes up with the same (very real) injury on Earth. And if her dreams aren't real, shouldn't they be more fun? Since only men on Terra are supposed to be able to move things with their minds, Alora spends all her time there hiding her powers.

But when her best friend on Terra is threatened, Alora uses her powers to save him, inadvertently killing the attacker. The next day on Earth, the exact same man she killed on Terra walks into her workplace. . .and drops dead. Suddenly, she's being hunted in both places. Alora must discover how Earth and Terra are connected and how far she'll go to save a world that may not deserve to be saved.

★Trade Reviews ★

"The premise [of Anchored] is not only the right blend of imagination, mystery, and hold-your-breath action, but is entirely unique and leaves the reader wanting more. This is a 10 out of 10." --Publisher's Weekly.

"This fantasy series opener finds its rhythm early and then breezes along, keeping readers enthralled. [This] novel is a winner," --Kirkus Reviews.

"The best part of [Anchored] was the non-stop, action-packed, exciting plot. This book has it all: suspense, mystery, love, action, romance, war, you name it. And it is all perfectly combined to produce the perfect story and the perfect beginning to what I know will be a fantastic series," Readers' Favorite

"Wow, this book takes hold and doesn't let go. Fast-paced writing, an awesome storyline, and ridiculously fun world-building make this a new favorite of the year. Plus, Egyptian mythology! A must-read for fantasy lovers," USA Today Bestselling author M. Lynn

"I have no idea how Bridget did it, but she tangled reality and dream fantasy together effortlessly. This is one of those books you will go back and read again and again! I cannot wait for book 2," USA Today Bestselling author, J.A. Culican

"I can honestly say I've never read anything quite like this. I found myself rooting for this funny, self-deprecating protagonist from the first page. The story's solid and compelling, and pulls at your heartstrings every step of the way!" USA Today Bestselling Author Robin D. Mahle

"This action-packed novel is a dose of both fantasy and reality. The writing is infectious, jam-packed with emotion, and the tangling of two worlds--the real and the dream--is masterfully done," USA Today Bestselling Author Cortney Pearson

"What a fascinating and intriguing urban fantasy read! The characters are beautifully developed, even those only briefly in the story. This is a wonderful story of different worlds and strong family ties told superbly!" In D'Tale Magazine
