ART: Amber Eyes

Book 02, Aboard the Train

The Johns family tree was truly magical. Some said it was because Ian’s great-great-great-grandfather had married a woodland fairy. Since then, men and women in their clan sometimes showed signs of magic. Those with dynasty level talents considered the Johns’ ability a quaint quirk. But Ian was proud of his inheritance.

—Byways, Book #1, On Your Marks: The Adventure Begins

Changers. Readers of the Byways books quickly discover that Ian Johns and his three sons aren’t typical. Not only do all three boys have different mothers (making them half-brothers), they’ve each inherited their father’s magical talent. As “Changers,” they can transform into an animal. Ewan’s animal form is an elk. Even when he Changes into his animal form, Ewan’s eyes remain amber … yet another Johns family trait.
