Two mysterious hidden cities would provide the answers that would affect everyone on Earth. The quest to locate these cities was essential to the planet's heartbeat. The discovery of an extraordinary centuries old painting found in a cave high in the Carpathian Mountains made world headlines. A billionaire industrialist named F. F. Barry was extremely taken upon seeing the portrait of the frighteningly beautiful woman. Although he offered the museum a fortune for the painting he was turned down.

A tall handsome charismatic man named Rowan made an offer to F. F. Barry. He would aid Barry in destroying the elusive city called Unitas, which was protected by an enemy that they had in common. He would also produce the woman from the portrait that had captured Barry's heart. In addition, he would offer him immortality.

The most dangerous and loyal changeling to the blood Queen Kara not only still lived but became the most powerful changeling on the planet. He was called Toes. His whirlwind attacks with his long bladed foot talons had decapitated many a foe. Rowan noticed that Toes was bigger and more powerful looking and was accompanied by a unique woman known as Lady Lamprey. Toes developed a chivalrous connection to the unique woman who was unlike any other he had ever seen. She was being called a she-serpent and a water dragon by over 40 castle troops during a medieval attack. He rescued her and vowed to help her in her quest to locate the city of her origin known as the Land of the Hidden Lakes. Her mother left her an unusual two bladed knife that would only open when in her hand. Its handle carried strange markings that no one seemed to recognize.

Two teenagers named Valentina and David were armed with a notebook written by a remarkable woman named Emily Westwood. It contained the clues to locating Unitas, the city that F. F. Barry wanted found and destroyed. They vowed to find this city and warn its inhabitants of the impending danger.

- Where was Emily?
- Where was the Land of the Hidden Lakes?
- Who was responsible for the three terrifying aliens that came to Earth from the Shadow Planet?

Answers are often found when the imagination discovers knowledge on the other side of reality's realm.
