Raine Stewart is convinced she’ll die young and alone, the victim of a mysterious illness, until a man in a shabby cloak steps out of her library mirror and demands she help him defeat a bloodthirsty wizard. Sucked through a portal to Tandara, where magic and monsters are real, Raine flees the evil wizard on her trail. Her companions—a warrior, a wizard, a tenderhearted giant, and a prickly troll—are determined to protect her. And Raine may have powers of her own . . . if she lives long enough to learn how to use them.
