Torn between two worlds, Rayna must decide which is greater—
her desire to return to her own world—or her love for the man of her dreams.

Following a strange storm, college student Rayna Powell finds herself in a dangerous land with mysterious powers she didn't know she had. But is her power great enough to confront the beasts within Nephredom's Gate? Can she save the land of Taren from destruction?
 
Accompanying Rayna on her reluctant quest is Arstinax—a tall, strong warrior who is as gentle with her as he is fierce in battle. In spite of herself, Rayna falls in love with him, which makes the adventures they share together all the more thrilling...and the stakes couldn't be higher! 
     
Excerpt
Taking heed to her watch's warning, Rayna quickly hid herself behind the corner of a brick wall and shoved her glowing hand in her pocket. Then she saw it. It stood over eight feet tall, and oozed a dripping, green ichor from every part of its scaly body. Its face resembled a nightmarish hybrid of boar, and lizard, creased and knotted like heavy clay molded into monstrosity. Its bulging eyes had lids that closed horizontally, and as the creature squinted in the daylight sun, only its elongated red pupils showed through. It was an undeniable rendition of evil personified. Its pointed-toothed mouth opened and closed repeatedly, as if rehearsing for its next meal. Rayna dared not breathe; she feared the sound of her own pounding heart would give her away...

LIBRARY JOURNAL REVIEW
When Rayna Powell seeks to avoid running into a woman standing in the middle of the road on a rainy night, the ensuing crash hurtles her into another world, where she crosses a barren, lightning-filled plain to emerge in a land that hails her as a god returned. Rayna reluctantly gets drawn into an ancient conflict between the folk of West Taren and their eastern kin. Confronting inhuman magicians known as Red Robes and their ruthless king, Rayna and her newfound allies uncover a startling secret about the world's origin. Baker's first novel combines a fantasy-type world with quasi-scientific underpinnings to create a sf/fantasy blend suitable for large libraries.
