The Balloonmakers Duology

 
 

The Girl with the Red Balloon (Book 1)

Ellie Baum feels the weight of history on her when she arrives on a school trip to Berlin, Germany. But history becomes all too real when she gets yanked back through time by a magical red balloon to 1988 East Berlin.

Nobody knows how she got there, not even the members of the underground guild who use balloons and magic to help people escape over the Wall. Now as a stranger in an oppressive regime, Ellie must hide from the police with the help of Kai, a member of the underground rebellion, struggling with his own uneasy relationship with the powerful Balloonmakers and his growing feelings for Ellie. Together they search for the truth behind Ellie's mysterious travel, and when they uncover a plot to alter history with dark magic, she must risk everything—including her only way home—to stop the deadly plans.

The Spy with the Red Balloon (Book 2)

Siblings Ilse and Wolf hide a deep secret in their blood: with it, they can work magic. And the government just found out.

Blackmailed into service during World War II, Ilse lends her magic to America's newest weapon, the atom bomb, while Wolf goes behind enemy lines to sabotage Germany's nuclear program. It's a dangerous mission, but if Hitler were to create the bomb first, the results would be catastrophic. Then Ilse uncovers a spy who threatens both of their missions.
