She refuses to give her name, and gives birth to a baby girl. But immediately after the birth, she disappears, leaving the baby alone in the hospital. The child, named Dani after the midwife who delivered her, is put up for adoption.Twelve years later Dani is living with a foster family. A vulnerable and unworldly girl, Dani is an inconvenience and always being blamed for things that aren't her fault. After being wrongly accused of performing an act of petty childish spite, Dani is sent to a children's home. The home is full of difficult children, who bully and victimise Dani. Terrified of both the children and the grown-ups, she runs away.Dani spends several nights on the streets of London, begging for food. When a stranger offers her something to eat and a place to sleep, she accepts gratefully. But what she does not know is that this man is a brutal pimp who tries to drag Dani into a violent, drug-fuelled world of prostitution. Soon she is plunged into an unimaginable nightmare of abuse that she truly believes will never end.But there is one person out there searching for Dani; one person who has her best interests at heart; one person who will do anything to save her. It's just a matter of whether she can find her in time…

To find more, we will need to visit new dimensions, seeking those who also have potential."<p>As they walked, Hammer pressed Drexl with questions. "How can I have potential? I'm just a clone!! What will the dimensions be like? And what about my first question; what kinds of mana are there." Drexl turned around, but instead of the hate and annoyance that Drexl expected, he looked proud and happy.<p>"I will answer one of your questions at least: there are six types of mana." He held up six fingers to demonstrate. "They are categorized by color. There is Black, Blue, Red, Green, White and Colorless." He pointed to the Terminus card. "Take a look at the top right corner: what do you see?"<p>Hammer looked. "Well, there's three bubbles. Um, two of them are white with suns in them, and one of them is grey with the number 4 in it." Drexl nodded. "Yes. This means that to cast this spell, you need to use 2 white mana, and 4 colorless mana."<p>Hammer nodded. "Okay, cool. Now, you said
