It is just a book. But when Frankie breaks the spine on the ancient tome, her life changes. The tale unfolds when she begins to read:
In a time long forgotten, people are held captive by cruel, half human creatures. One woman holds a secret close to her heart. Ashra must discover the purpose of her gift, before the oppressed human race is destroyed. An unlikely ally comes to her aid. Strangers bring her a message from a far off land. Ashra and her band of misfits set off in search of answers. Together, they uncover secrets from the past, face ever-present danger, and hone powers they never knew they had.
Ashra and Frankie are separated by millennia, by fiction and reality, but in the end, the barrier shatters. The book holds the future; Frankie is the key.
