Acknowledging that she was different from everyone else wasn't difficult for Wendy Everly -- she'd always felt like an outsider. But a new world and new family is a hard for any girl to accept easily. Leaving behind the mysterious country of her birth, she is determined to fit back into normal life. But the world she's left behind won't let her go that easily. Kidnapped and imprisoned by her true family's enemies, Wendy soon learns that the lines between good and evil aren't as defined as she thought. And those things she'd taken for granted may have been lies all along. With the help of the dangerously attractive Loki, she escapes back to the safety of Forening -- only to be confronted by a new threat. It's time to make a choice -- can she put aside her personal feelings for the sake of her country? Torn between duty and love she must make a choice that could destroy her one chance at true happiness. 'Generated an excitement not felt in the industry since Stephenie Meyer or perhaps even J. K.
