Fifteen-year-old Karma is plagued by nightmares as she sleeps. During the day, she faces her own set of problems in the form of high school peers. Bullied; feeling alone and isolated, it is only in her imaginary world where she feels relevant. But as strange things begin happening in her small Adirondack town, it is becoming more and more clear that there’s more than meets the eye.

When she meets Drakkos, she is stunned to find he is the match for the Wild Boy she sees in her dreams every night. Soon, Karma will have to find out what secrets are hiding in the town, and what lurks in the shadows? With her new friend Portia and her brother Johnny, they discover a threat to our realm that only she can prevent at a great cost to herself.

To be continued in Book Two: The Valkyrie
