Adarae jolted as the feeling surged through her. She looked carefully at not one, but two little faces and felt the warm power within them. No one suspected it could be two, but the strength pulsing from them was undeniable. They stared back into her eyes.
Fifteen-year-old Erin and her twin brother, Bain, had never seen the secluded cabin in the woods by their home. Upon entering, they discover a magical world where pegasi, dragons and fairies are a reality.
The siblings soon find themselves with super-human powers, being taught the art of magic and sword play by mystical beings. It isn’t long before they are struck with a realization they are training to become elves.
Faced with the decision to leave the life they have always known for a world of fantasy, Erin and Bain confront certain demons that threaten to tear them apart.
A delightful fantasy! Slightly predictable, but fun and pretty original.
