Jane is the only one who notices all the strange things happening: like a squirrel packing a suitcase, a blind man who can drive, and that adults, including her parents, appear to be hypnotized by technology.

When Jane is attacked by a man with raven black wings, she escapes with her younger brother to a magical land at the center of the world called Hotland. With the help of a cat-person called Gaius and a dragon named Finn, Jane learns that she is the only one who can defeat an evil King bent on destroying civilization.

HOPE'S END and HOPE'S WAR were published in 2001 and 2002.  Here is the way The New York Times described them:

"The setting is a planet colonized by followers of a mad genius who is the cloned avatar of the English visionary poet William Blake . . . [who] was treated badly by the corporation that brought him back to life as a promotional gimmick. So he became a homicidal megalomaniac who slaughtered billions while almost conquering the earth before being exiled to a distant planet to try again."

"Michael!" she called. "This isn't funny!"

There were words scrawled in the sand of the tank: HE IS COMING.
