A young elf named Caelum is forced from her world of Zirconya into an unmagical realm called Earth. Ignorant of the life she left behind, she lives as a normal human being, but nothing could be further from the truth. After seventeen years of unknowing exile, a man from her real world, Maze, comes to escort her back, but without her memories of Zirconya, his tales only convince her of his insanity.
When holes begin tearing through the dimensional fabric between Earth and Zirconya, Caelum must find a way to remember her past life before Zirconya's existence is discovered. But how can she remember something she doesn’t even believe has happened? As if surviving high school isn’t tough enough, add the constant dogging by an annoying, though hunky, mythical man, and the appearance of a creature from her darkest nightmares, and you’ve got a troubled teen.
"Listen, Vicky," she cut in just loud enough for her friend to hear. "I know about Lockesith and Zirconya and the Sages. I know about them all. Don’t say a word to anyone else unless they know who Maze is." She began to speak in a panic as the dark man spoke with the teacher. "It’s all true. You have to believe it, all right? Please!"
The teacher turned and pointed to Chloe. The sinstarian glared at her as he neared. Chloe glanced at Vicky once more and flashed a half smile when she suddenly shot out of her seat, jumped from desktop to desktop and dashed out through the back door of the classroom leading her outside.
She ran along the edge of campus, Craban close behind. The other sinstarian came up from the side and joined the first. The pursuit seemed in slow-motion as she ran for her life.
Turning her head, Chloe saw the pair as they drew dangerously closer with each stride. The Sage faced forward again and saw Maze standing a few paces ahead. He held a large, silver sword which he lifted above his head and slashed the air before him, creating a tear similar to the one in the sky. Chloe had too much momentum and couldn’t stop herself before she reached the tear. Her eyes widened as she ran directly into it and the campus disappeared.
