Children of Avalon
Kyah ignores her boring life by keeping her head in the clouds. The twenty-five-year-old orphan is on the verge of being fired from her dead-end job for excessive daydreaming when one of her fantasies becomes a reality. A shimmering portal forms before her very eyes, and an unbelievable green-skinned man shoves Kyah through to the other side. She’s barely had time to comprehend this new world when a group of ancient beings send her on a sacred quest…
In a village of masked men, each man is compelled to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. A man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever. Seventeen-year-old Noll’s childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her. She is in fact the goddess of the mysterious lord of the village, a man who refuses to let Noll have her right as a woman to spurn him.
