What is this young adult dystopian fantasy about?



All good stories have a hero. “The One” who arrives to save the realm from darkness and evil.
But what if the wrong person takes their place by accident? Uses the magic portal destined for “The One” and locks them out of the realm in the process?
That’s a touchy subject for Sammy Ellis who’s woken to find herself in a forest of giant, glowing mushrooms.
Eden at the Edge of Midnight is the first book in a young-adult dark fantasy series (The Vara Volumes)


From the Cover

The Vara of Yima, the original Garden of Eden, sealed from the rest of the world and populated with the fittest of men and women. A secret paradise that 150 years ago became ravaged by smog that choked out the skies.

Now the Vara exists in a permanent state of darkness and its people need a champion, a chosen one to save them from the smog that threatens to fill the realm and poison its inhabitants.

That’s what they needed. They got Sammy Ellis instead. She isn’t important enough for her dad to stick around for, never mind saving a realm or junk like that. Her only responsibility was to help the chosen one open the gateway into the Vara, but not only has she entered the realm in their place, she’s also locked them out in the process.

Stuck in a twilight land of giant mushrooms, pursued by dark forces and still in her pyjamas, being unimportant back in the real world is starting to seem way more attractive.
