Jennifer Malone Wright resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with her husband and five children. Between the craziness of taking care of her children, whose ages range from fourteen all the way down to six months, and being a homemaker, Jennifer has little time left for herself. The time she does have left, usually leading far into the night, is spent working on freelance work or her beloved fiction.
When she grew up, Jennifer always had her nose in a book. She has been writing stories and poems since grade school. This love of the written word and her strong interest in the paranormal is what has led to her first novel “The Birth of Jaiden.”
In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Jennifer is also a very proud military wife. Moving around the country for the last ten years has made her a bit of a nomad and she finds it difficult to be in one place for too long.
Jennifer is also the author of The Birth of Jaiden, a paranormal novel filled with action, suspense, and even a love story.

Here's an Excerpt!
“Come on. You said you wanted a demonstration of the water element.”
“Oh, cool.” I followed him through the trails until we reached a clearing where a tiny stream ran into a rather quaint little pond. Oddly enough, the pond wasn‟t frozen. Perhaps it wasn‟t cold enough.
“This is pretty,” I told him.
He just nodded and said nothing while he set down his bow and backpack on a large old tree stump. I watched while he turned toward the pond and narrowed his eyes.
“Look at the water, Chloe, not at me.”
“Oh.” I changed direction quickly.
The stream poured out of the woods and into the pond with gently running ripples of water. I almost didn‟t notice when the water in the center of the pond began to swirl. The swirling gradually picked up speed and grew larger until it looked like a whirlpool. But whirlpools go downward into the water. This whirlpool began to rise up out of the water. It rose up maybe six feet and then the water spilled over from the top like a fountain. I glanced at Gavin. He stood stock still, silent, his eyes focused on the water.
Slowly, the swirling fountain of water receded back into the pond. I stood there, enthralled by the magic Gavin could do with his power.
“You‟re amazing,” I whispered to him.
“No,” he shook his head, “I’m not amazing. I can just do amazing things.”
“Well… I think you‟re amazing.”
He turned his head and caught my eyes. “I think you‟re amazing, and you haven‟t done anything like that.”
Oh, little did he know. For some reason, his comment made me want to show him what I could do, but I didn‟t even know if I could do it on command. So far it had only happened when I was angry.
He stared at me so deeply I felt naked.
“Gavin, what I just saw was magical. You make magic.”

The action starts right away in the first book! It is a quick read but gives us the foundation for a great storyline.
The second book smoothly continues the story and is also a quick read.
The third book was a little longer and became a whole lot more intriguing. Many things happened and it was easy to get swept away.
The fourth book kept up the pace and had me eager to turn the pages.
The fifth book was really action packed and had me on the edge of my seat many times.
Book six tied this series up in a big bow and got us ready for the story to continue in a new series called The Arcadia Falls Chronicles.
I am so glad that I had all of the books in one instalment. It was convenient being able to jump from book to book without having to wait!
The plot had some romance, suspense, and action galore. It was a YA read.
I enjoyed this omnibus. Jennifer Malone Wright knows how to tell a story and keep you enthralled from start to finish. Each of the books got better and better!
I recommend this collection to anyone who likes vampire books, YA paranormal books or who is looking for a good story.
The entire collection can be read easily and will be over before you know it.
I am looking forward to reading the follow up series, The Arcadia Falls Chronicles.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Honestly, I enjoyed it immensely and I couldn't put it down until the end.
I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!
