A fierce wind and a blast of green light during a strange storm causes everything to change for Katharine Bowers and Becky Thatcher. The girls wake up in Oren, an entirely different realm than their earthly city. They meet Enalie, a fading magical presence who sets an incredible destiny before them… then simply disappears. Left alone to fend off creatures that hunt them in the night, they must relay a magical heritage that doesn’t make sense, and – if possible – save a world that they know nothing about.

“Becky Thatcher, turn that light off and go to sleep. Not only is it a school night, you have a math test tomorrow.”
Becky wrinkled her nose and reluctantly closed her Harry Potter book. Reaching from her bed, she flicked off her bedside lamp. Out in the hall, Dad waited until the room went dark before footsteps announced a retreat to his own bedroom.
Fluffing her pillows in mild annoyance, she pouted about the unfairness of bedtimes. Math tests too. Not school—she loved school. It was just that English was her preferred subject, as well as Art and Music and even sometimes Social Studies. Math was a dull and uncreative subject. Fractions didn’t make a lick of sense. She doubted she would score well on that test tomorrow.
She could have gone to sleep as Dad instructed without too much distress. It wasn’t the first time she’d read J.K. Rowling’s famous work. She wouldn’t be tossing and turning in agony all night, desperate to know the conclusion.
Except it was Sunday night, the end of the weekend, and Becky wasn’t the least bit tired. Since she wasn’t ready for sleep, and had no last-minute homework to complete, there were only two things she could think to do: read or draw.
