But when her aunt gifts her a magical sapphire amulet that has been in the family for generations, everything in Alana’s world is about to change.
Propelled into a land plagued with mythical creatures, Alana—broken and lost—faces fear and fights. When fate knocks, she must make an impossible choice—stop a wicked parallel universe from ruling Earth, or send a loved one into a fiery inferno.
THE MAGIC GAME
Thirteen-year-old Adelina wants nothing more than to escape the curse The Prince of Darkness cast over her village, and to find her missing parents.
One day while traveling through the dark woods, she discovers the border that keeps her and all the villagers of Dimshire in, and all the outsiders out. Trapped under a dome devoid of color, magic, and sun, she vows to one day break down the borders.
Then THE MAGIC GAME arrives in Dimshire, turning the cursed town into a spectacular circus. Before the game ends in five days, Adelina must decide if using magic to save the town is worth the risk of disappearing like her parents.
