16-year-old Milla loses everything in an instant—her family, her home, her life as she knows it—over a sacred scroll that can merge her realm of Asper with Earth. Ignited by grief, she sets out for vengeance but discovers she’s no match for the murderous queen who seeks to rule both worlds.

Undeterred, Milla takes a forgotten portal to Earth so she can master her craft without being hunted and return for the kill. While there, she bonds with 17-year-old Parker who believes in her and her unfathomable stories when no one else does.

But when a spell her father cast to bury her memories begins to wane, Milla glimpses into a past she doesn’t recognize. A past so unthinkable, it derails her future. Secrets and lies, love and hate, friends and foes—the lines are blurred and she’s left questioning everything.

Should she still do what she set out to? Or risk everything—Earth, Asper, Parker—for the sake of hope?
