The fifteenth of June. That was the day everything changed for Catherine Cole. It was an ending, a beginning. Who knew that three little words—your mother’s dead—could shatter a life so thoroughly, yet set in motion an even more devastating fate? Certainly not Cate, but that doesn’t stop it from showing up in the form of James ap Seoras, a rebel leader from another earth, desperate to save the land he calls home.
Soon, Cate finds herself a reluctant stranger in a foreign world, guided, protected, and challenged by James. Despite his plight, her only goal is to find a way home—a quest that grows increasingly difficult as she becomes ensnared in an ancient war between good and evil. Both sides vie for possession of her body and soul, twisting and turning Cate in ways she never imagined possible, until she no longer recognizes who—or what—she is.
She fights to find herself and regain the life she knew, but when a horrible truth is revealed, Cate is left in a free fall. She can only see enemies where once were allies. Home is a word with no meaning, and the lines between right and wrong are blurred past the point of existence.
Prophecy claims she belongs to the dark, but light refuses to let her go. Destined to tip a precarious balance and bring a war to its end, Cate must make a choice—but which side will she choose?
