Branded an Abomination, yet unable to protect herself, Gaven submits to the blue fairy of Torv, and under the fairy's expert guidance, she easily harnesses the magic seeping through the earth. But when her father reveals the truth of her origins, the gentle trolless is crushed.
With nothing left to lose, Gaven and two squabbling friends flee to the fringes of human a settlement, and then across the ocean in a desperate attempt to outrun her past.
But Gaven knows the blue fairy is out there, lingering along the horizon, waiting to take her revenge.
Blue on the Horizon is the first entry in the Legends of the Aurora series. It all begins with Gaven, but each title in the trilogy encompasses a complete story. However, to truly understand the deeper mystery at the core of the trilogy, you must read all three books.
