What if finding the truth means you’re not who – or what – you think you are?

Born to a wealthy Virginian family, privileged Jordan’s got her life all planned out. Get her PhD in forensic linguistics, make her State Senator father proud. Find the perfect Virginia man to marry and pop out a few more Kacy’s.

If only Jordan could let the past rest.

When your mother disappears without a trace it carves a gash that bleeds a long time. Jordan has never given up hope that her mother is alive. So when Jordan’s old nanny shows up with a mysterious locket containing a portrait of Jordan’s mother, Jordan believes her hope was not in vain.

When the locket opens a portal to an alternate universe and a stranger hurtles through to earth, it’s not her first clue that something very strange is at play. Teaming up with Sol, a disgruntled courier who’s lost his wings, Jordan embarks on a haphazard quest. Facing off with interfering barmaids, terrifying harpies, and disorganized elves with a penchant for inventing magic they can’t reverse is only the beginning.

Can Jordan find her mother and learn the truth about her disappearance? And what happens if the truth is far from what she expected?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I loved this new magical world the authors created. There was just enough mystery without dragging it out too long. The environments, people, creatures and fighting scenes were described in detail which effortlessly made you part of the story. There was no lack of imagination and I finished the book in one sitting.


Such a great story. Ms. Knorr and Ms. Carr have created a world that has blown me away. The characters are fantastic, likable and relate-able. The conflicts are believable and the world is similar but different than our own. They’ve artfully mixed urban and epic fantasy and the result is fantastic! Definitely worth the read.


A well written story involving a portal to a fantasy world that becomes a rich setting for the journey of self-discovery for Jordan, a grad student and only daughter of a Virginia politician. Jordan’s character is likeable and easy to relate to and the author does a good job of describing this new world through her eyes. As the plot unfolds and more information is revealed, the pages turn quickly, making this an enjoyable read that leaves the reader anticipating the next book in the series.


Awesome book!!! I loved it so much and was disappointed when it ended. I need more. Please write faster, I need to find out what happens next.


This was a very well thought out book with a great story line. Interesting characters that operate between two worlds. The main characters are well rounded and interesting so the book moves very quickly.

Martha Carr

Okay, I’m a late bloomer who’s a big DC comics fan and spent my childhood summers on the Jersey shore in the U.S. but have had a weird wanderlust to live in different parts of America ever since. That’s enough about me. Need to feel inspired today? Looking for something to make you root for an ordinary hero? I’m all about that in everything I write.

I love a good tale that makes me wonder about things and I love a story even more that leaves me feeling inspired or like I’m capable of doing more than I realized. That’s my goal with everything I’ve ever written. Some of the stories I tell involve twisting, turning thrillers and others have a lot of magic.

There’s something to be said for getting lost in another world and coming out the other side feeling a little better about yourself or the possibilities in front of you. That’s basically the best part of life in a nutshell, no matter what kind of story I’m setting out to tell.
