Hailey Heartstone did not have an ordinary childhood. The only daughter of a merchant sailor, she grew up climbing ship’s rigging, balancing high above decks, but lately Hailey struggles to find the balance in her life. She fears that her days on the sea are coming to an end and that a course has been plotted for her that will end in a stifling arranged marriage. But all that is about to change.
In one fateful moment, Hailey’s life is ripped from its safe and predictable course and thrust into a storm of peril. She stumbles upon an ancient book and unlocks a dangerous power that thrusts her into a world full of deadly mists and phantom pirates intent on recovering what once was theirs.
Kidnapped from her family, Hailey must face true fear as she is forced into a journey to protect the power that she found and seek out those willing to help her save all that she loves before it is too late.
In this thrilling fantasy adventure, a young girl gifted with untapped abilities unlocks a dangerous power and must find her inner strength in time to fight the battle of her life, to save her family, and protect all that she holds dear. Fraught with twists and turns, H.N.Klett weaves an exhilarating adventure filled with magical powers, pirate clashes, hidden treasure, and unlikely friendships.
