Raine Stewart is whisked to the fantastical land of Tandara, where a Dark Wizard is out for her blood, a demonic golem has orders to dispatch her . . . and she finds being a wizard, even a baby wizard, harder than she thought. Seeking sanctuary in the snow-capped mountains of Finlara, Raine, in short order, unearths a magic mirror, a dread curse, and a tragic, ill-fated love affair. Safety, however, is an illusion. War looms and the fate of the world hangs in the balance, but Raine hopes to survive with the help of magic and her friends.
