Thanks to some epic bad luck, Vera tumbles through the gate separating Earth from the other realms of the world. Beyond Earth, the world is full of magic. And completely off-limits to humans. Vera’s new protector, Kale, is the cranky, overbearing, irritatingly attractive Guardian responsible for executing humans who stray beyond their borders. Turns out, her kind broke the world a thousand years before.
Chassie thought she knew the prophesy but has a growing suspension that she has not been told everything. Someone is watching her and she has a feeling it isn’t Rasul. She is so focused on discovering the true prophesy that she has dropped her guard against the one person she shouldn’t have. The Amaru abilities are a deadly as the Qiáo abilities but the clan war between them will be the least of her concerns. The real battle has begun and she is not prepared.
