Far across the sea from the mortal world lies a vast wilderness where phoenixes have existed for a thousand years. They guard the dream garden, a sacred place of untapped spiritual power. Now that Dominic of Landers has vanquished the warden of the western seas in a magical fight and broken the spell binding the phoenixes to their land, they are free to mingle with the society they left behind so long ago.
The flock of ancient firebirds emerges briefly to help Safire, Merius, and their family defeat an enemy invader from another realm. However, rather than engage with their distant descendants, the elder phoenixes retreat back into the mysterious place they have called home for a millennium. Safire and Merius, curious about their rescuers, decide to visit the reclusive group.
No one expects what occurs next, of course. Those readers who have followed Safire's and her family's adventures in the Landers Saga and Phoenix Realm books know how much trouble Safire, Merius, and their children can cause. Now add a sarcastic unicorn, a mean old bat, a slightly wicked trickster with too many handkerchiefs, and a philosophical tiger-man to the mix and see what happens. For those who find such antics entertaining, read on. You won't be disappointed (I hope;)

About the Author
As a child, Karen suffered frequent bouts of insomnia. The only way she could settle into sleep many nights was to imagine stories that played out like movies on the dark ceiling over her bed. Since her mean parents refused to replace the TV after the cat blew it up by peeing on the cord, all Karen had left to entertain herself in the lone wilds of the Minnesota wilderness were books and her own stories. As Karen grew, the stories grew with her. One day when she was fourteen, she told her mother one of these stories for probably the hundredth time. Her mother, who knew Karen very well, turned to her and said, “You know, Karen, you keep talking about these stories, but you never write them down. You keep saying you’re going to write a novel, but I don’t believe that you will.” This comment infuriated Karen so much that she started writing her stories down and hasn’t stopped since.
