Description
Unknowingly, Alika and her friends, Ruth and Heather, stumble into a world they didn’t know existed and their destinies now hang in the balance. Alika's loyalties are tested when she is forced to choose between saving her friends and fulfilling an oath that she never meant to take. Alika Clark is a klutzy fourteen, soon to be fifteen, year old who is homeschooled. She spends most of her free time reading, daydreaming, and hanging out with her two best friends Ruth and Heather. One leisurely walk in the woods and the three girls lives are changed forever. They are kidnapped and catapulted into the world of a person who calls himself Lord Mortac. This strange world resembles a medieval society with magic and antiquated customs. It’s also right at the doorstep of modern everyday life as they know it, just waiting to interrupt with a wave of chaos. Alika must recall what her friend, Owen Skile, warned her against the last time they saw each other, and she unexpectedly meets a young major in the army who will save her life and capture her heart. In the first book of the trilogy, follow these old and new friends as they twist their way through betrayals, cunningness, and lies barely escaping death as their journeys slowly lead them to truth and undiscovered mysteries that no one expected to find.
