Madeline's always had a purpose. Lately, it's been to make partner at her high-powered law firm, something that she's chased relentlessly for years.
Fate, and some pretty powerful magic, change all of that in minutes.
She and her assistant Simon are pulled into another world, where magic and prophecy are real. The people of the Summer Lands are under threat from a blood feud, and it has been foretold that Madeline will play a part in the quest to save them - even if she's not exactly willing to get involved at all.
Their ruler, Lady Arabela, needs her help, and time is already running short. Their quest has to be done by the next full moon, or her land will be overrun and destroyed. She's not used to taking no for an answer, especially not with her subjects' lives as stake. But Madeline's not used to being so completely off-track, and she doesn't take orders from anyone - not even someone with magic and an army at their disposal.
Today, however, the life or death of a nation rests with her.
