Anna is sixteen and lives in the Kingdom of Cabir, a land ruled by fierce, emotionless Equidrones. Her days are spent avoiding her abusive Equidrone brother and learning potions from her mother, the Queen. One fateful day her father, King Xynon, discovers her mother’s secret room and she and the Queen are forced out of the Kingdom, escaping for their lives. Tragedy and magic lead Anna to another land, the Kingdom of Zirdan, where she finds love and warmth and makes some very unusual friends. Yet her peace is shattered by a series of unexpected events and she is given the blame. Leaving her happy home and her love behind Anna journeys to the fenced land of Lados to try and clear her name. Instead of vindication she finds another kind of existence, one that is both exciting and suffocating. As her confusion and fear intensify Anna’s past finally catches up with her and she must discover her true identity and face a mighty battle in order to save her friends and unite the Kingdoms. With victory comes sacrifice and she has already lost so much.
