Friendships are tested, new alliances are made, and the truth
of one woman's actions from over a millennia ago are revealed.
Kenna and Meegan are college students dealing with upcoming finals, needy parents, boy drama, and what to do with their lives after they graduate in a few weeks. What they weren't expecting was for Kenna to receive a powerful crystal necklace that ultimately changes their plans for a relaxing summer.
Strange things begin to happen to Kenna, like being the only one who can see and talk to the mysterious old woman with a golden aura. Or how in her dreams, a man with vibrant orange eyes keeps appearing who may or may not be real. Though, not all of Kenna's mysterious encounters are pleasant as she's haunted by massive beings carrying long swords and wearing armor covered in black scales.
Besides solving the mystery of where the crystal necklace came from, Kenna, Meegan, and their friends are taken to another world for a routine evolutionary assessment. The assessment gets sabotaged and causes more chaos for Kenna and her friends, especially for Meegan who is forced to open up and reveal her true identity and the magic she hides.
There's one name that Kenna, Meegan, the Sendarians, and the monsters who've been hunting Meegan and her family for over a century all have in common...
A Note From the Publisher
This story is science-fiction before anything. A lighter version of the science-fiction genre, but because there are aliens, alien worlds, and advanced technology, it's a science-fiction story.
The fantasy side of this story involves a special magic, a biological connection to cast amulas (similar to casting spells) and magic stones/crystals from an alien world.
Romance is a subplot to the main plot of two friends, Kenna and Meegan trying to understand what's going on around them after Kenna is gifted a mysterious magic crystal.
It's an intricate story with multiple points-of-views, all connected one way or another. I tend to write like I'm writing a TV series. I've always felt that supporting characters have stories too, and their stories help enhance the bigger story.
The bigger story being who is Isoldesse and why do the Sendarians worship her as their Goddess?
This book is the first book in the duology series, and I hope many readers love this story as much as I loved writing it and are hooked and eager to read book two!
