Her raging scars and chronic pain made her different. Her courage made her savior of 2 worlds
Agnes Ann Cavanaugh was always different from the other girls. Not just because of her scars, or the nerve damage to her legs... She can sense when people are lying, just by looking at them. And she can read almost any language, even ones she doesn't speak.
Things get even stranger when Agnes interns with a professor of ancient texts. She is assigned to translate an ancient tablet, written in a dead. But before she can decipher its mysterious markings, a horde of monsters and a librarian with a ghostly aura attack from the shadows!
Rescued by an old man named Temnon, and his shapeshifting cat, Agnes is whisked away to a magical world known as First Earth. Lost and afraid, the teenage girl is thrust into a magical conflict, centuries in the making. But as the forces of good and evil clash, she discovers a darker power lurking behind the scenes, manipulating events for its own fiendish desires to steal her magic.
Can Agnes find the strength to summon her inner light, and defeat this demonic entity once and for all? Or will both earths fall before it's terrifying power...
Journey to a world of strange creatures, heart-racing adventure, and wondrous magic. Fans of J.A. Andrews and Lucia Ashta and Brigid Kemmerer will love this coming of age fantasy series.
