princess-heir to the empire until she married a prince of a rival
realm. Prince Kacha has won Medeoan's heart, and with the aid of
his mentor, a subtle and ambitious sorcerer, plans to win Isavalta,

flees, determined to win back her crown. She can only succeed if
Avanasy, her oldest friend and most powerful ally, will return to
help her. Because Avanasy loves Ingrid Loftfield and she loves him,
together they must cross the vast gulf that separates our world
from the magical realm of Isavalta. to rescue Medeoan, and fulfill
a destiny far beyond Ingrid's wildest dreams.
