A young-adult fantasy adventure unlike anything you’ve read before.
Imagine the Neverending story, spliced with Howl’s Moving Castle viewed through a Guillermo del Toro fever dream.
‘The writing is incredibly slick and polished, the universe so rich, vibrant and complex, the story so fascinating and well-paced. If this book exploded overnight and became a massive success, it would be well deserved. ‘ Goodreads Reviewer, five stars.
There exists a secret realm outside our own, the original Garden of Eden, sealed from the rest of the world and populated with the fittest of men and women. A paradise that became ravaged by smog that choked out the skies.
Now the realm exists in darkness and its people need a champion, a chosen one to save them from the poison that cloaks the land and threatens to smother its inhabitants.
That’s what they needed. They got sixteen-year-old Sammy Ellis instead. Her only responsibility was to help the “chosen one” open a gateway into the realm. But, not only has she entered the land in their place, she’s also locked them out in the process.
Sammy finds herself lost in a twilight land of giant mushrooms and pursued by dark forces. Can she find a way home so the true chosen one can return or has the realm been doomed by her actions?
