Danger. Protests. Rebellion. Push your limits. On a day like any other, an ordinary girl is yanked from her life because of an extraordinary gift: Magic. Enduring the harshest military training to harness her magic, she must learn quickly. But what happens when practice turns reality and her life and the lives of those around her are suddenly in danger?
Danger. Protests. Rebellion. All in the day of a sixteen year old girl. Danielle Kelson is not your ordinary
elf. An orphan, a rebel, and a total genius, Dan has more than just potential. . . She has magic. In a world where male dominance is not just socially acceptable, but necessary to survival, Dan discovers what it means to be alone. The only female with magic, Dan is forced to push her limits in order to find herself, and the secret to her magic’s existence.
Set beyond the stars of the Milky Way Galaxy, the story unfolds on a day like any other. In a matter of hours, Dan is jerked from her routine life and thrown into a world she does not understand where everyone hates her, and the secret of her magic is exposed. Against all the odds, and in the face of adversity, can she withstand the pressure? Or will the lies and cheating win?
Surrounded by men with magic beyond her own, who have physical capability and each other’s support, Dan is unavoidably isolated. Each day becomes a trial, a test of her ability, a door slamming shut in her face. Stuck in the middle of a corrupt system that is turned against her, quitting begins to look like a comfort. With her world gone to pieces, Dan must learn to accept this new way of life. Day after day, she is pushed past her limits, tricked into failing and immersed by emotions she never thought possible.
Amidst the haze of lies and cheats, support shows itself. Frog, Dan’s loyal companion since grade school, Jordan, a new found shoulder to lean on, and Rebel, her trainer. Under the guidance of the Commander, the trio connect in ways they never thought possible. Mystery unravels when Dan finds herself stricken with Jordan, when emotion is the last thing she needs. . .
Just as things begin to look up, disaster strikes and Dan finds herself suddenly pushed into the real world, where lives hang in the delicate balance between what she knows she can do and what she could do. With her magic raging out of control, but her mind racing and clear, Dan and her friends embark on the adventure of a lifetime. . . An adventure that may be their last.
With lives on the line, Dan must harness her magic, decipher who is good and who is evil, and learn to trust the ones she loves if they are to make it out alive. In a world where twisted dreams, secret romance, jealousy, and rebellion are all a part of the daily grind, will Dan find it to be everything she dreamed. . . Or her worst nightmare?
Light exploded all around her as Frog and Jordan bombarded the roof top with shots. The noise was deafening. Dan stumbled as the ground shook below her. She was close now. Three steps later, she was standing at the edge of the building. The wind suddenly caught her, just as she looked down. Her hair whirled in her face, and her heart pounded furiously.
“3 . . . 2 . . . 1. . .”
Dan turned quickly and jumped into the black void below her. Time seemed to slow as she hung suspended in midair for the smallest of seconds before the terrifying fall began. . .
