A fierce wind and a blast of green light during a strange storm causes everything to change for Katharine Bowers and Becky Thatcher. The girls wake up in Oren, an entirely different realm than their earthly city. They meet Enalie, a fading magical presence who sets an incredible destiny before them… then simply disappears. Left alone to fend off creatures that hunt them in the night, they must relay a magical heritage that doesn’t make sense, and – if possible – save a world that they know nothing about.
Three young Elementals discover they no longer have full control over their magic, a fact that is both unsettling and could put lives in peril. As a group known as the Coalition rises in power, its anti-magic sentiments spread from the small village of Sorc all the way to the kingdom of Areth. Amidst all this turmoil, Kat decides to take on a new quest, one that will affect Becky’s future. Venturing into territory more hazardous than any they’ve seen before, both girls strive toward a goal they know has little hope of success.
Morgaine is a clutz, a dramatist, and above all, a dreamer. Her goals for the 11th grade are simple: land the leading role in the annual school play and win the affection of Peter Barrie, the new Aussie heart throb. But when things fail to go as planned, Morgaine's carefully designed mask of dreams and fantasies begin to crack. Reality seeps in. Suppressed truths about her life rush to the surface and she has no choice but to confront them. As the boundaries between fact and fiction begin to blur, Morgaine must determine if she has the strength to live her life in a whole new way. Can she be the heroine she needs?

“And yet, here you are.” Ino uttered the comment before Kat could.
“Yes. Here I am.” Animosity was present in Andorla’s tone. “I am responsible for many students. Their welfare and abilities are in my care.”
If Andorla was making a point, Kat didn’t grasp it. “So?” Eyes narrowing, Andorla asked, “Did you send the girl back? Did you find a ‘crossing over place’ and make her an Inter?”
Marina’s brow quirked up. “According to you, Becky already was an Inter.”
“Just answer my question!”
No longer wanting to sit near the woman, Kat stood and moved across the room. “We don’t have to tell you anything.”
Andorla slammed down her teacup. As it hit the table, Lum-Num jumped. “You are fools. You have no idea what you’ve done.”
Mirroring Ino’s pose, Kat crossed her arms over her chest. “Sent a child home to her parents. Yes, we’re horrible people.”
Andorla shot to her feet, venom in her eyes. “If doing so caused this, then yes!”
“Caused what?” Marina asked.
Shoulders heaving, Andorla smoothed her skirts and sat back down. “Perhaps you do not know.”
Despite herself, she uncrossed her arms and leaned forward, showing interest. “Know what?”
On her feet again, Andorla stepped to the door. “Come. I’ll show you.” With a beckoning gesture, she left the house
