Clarinet Reid is a pretty typical teenager. On the surface. She’s smart, but a bit of a slacker; outgoing, but just a little insecure; not exactly a mischief-maker … but trouble tends to find her wherever she goes. Also? She unwittingly carries a centuries-old Druid Blood Curse running through her veins.

Now, with a single thoughtless act, what started off as the Summer Vacation in Dullsville suddenly spirals into a deadly race to find a stolen artifact, avert an explosive catastrophe, save a Celtic warrior princess, right a dreadful wrong that happened centuries before Clare was even born, and if there’s still time— literally—maybe even get a date.

This is the kind of adventure that happens to a girl once every … never.


Once Every Never is a refreshing, spirited read where humor abounds alongside unparalleled world-building and my favorite – hot guys. I laughed and bit my fingernails with Clarinet a.k.a. Clare as she navigated an unknown world of blood, mystery, and magic.” – Aprilynne Pike, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wings and Spells
