In an effort to mend the balance and save both worlds, the Fey create a new race. But only one out of the clutch of thirty-six eggs manages to hatch. Her name is Ki'tra and she becomes their hope. Seventeen years later, she faces a choice: live her remaining life in safety, or risk it all to wake the other eggs still unhatched. She chooses risk and leaves all she knows for the world of men. There she meets the human girl, Kristal, who’s blood holds the power to grant the eggs true life. Kristal is reluctant, but agrees to help her restore the balance between their worlds. Together they face new challenges as Kristal makes ready to go where no human has ventured in centuries, and an old menace returns to stop them….
