“They have been waiting lifetimes for you, Kaelia, they want you and will stop at nothing to have you.”
The warning has rung in Kaelia’s ears ever since she first discovered she’s far from the ordinary girl who grew up in the coastal town of Margate. She has a power and the first time she shows it, death strikes. On the second, she loses someone she loves, and on the third, her mother disappears.
The ones she’s been warned about are the evil in the shadows, the terror in nightmares but she doesn’t know who they are nor has she seen them...yet. Kaelia learns her destiny has been secretly told and passed down through generations awaiting her. They speak of a name - Marrock - whose destiny is entwined with hers but first she must uncover who Marrock is, whether she likes what she discovers or not. Destiny foretells Kaelia’s the key player in a battle which has been brewing for centuries; she is the only one who can stop the world she knows falling into darkness.
Facing forces of depraved evil, magic, and myth, Kaelia’s search to fulfil her destiny and find her mother lead her from her home, through magical forests to unearthly realms. Who, or what, can Kaelia trust? Is she strong enough to survive the horror which awaits? One thing Kaelia knows for sure is neither she nor her life will ever be the same again...
