“If those bad guys—Meladyne—if they have this Key, they will . . .?”
“Unlock the greatest power in all the universe and enslave every man, woman, and child on this planet, destroying the earth and all life as you know it; there will be nowhere to go but Meladyne. Then they’ll leave the Sunolians, the spirits, and all the magical creatures here to die.”
Alyssa pulled the Key out of her pocket and held it up. “Unless I protect this little thing?”
Alyssa McCaw is a normal fourteen-year-old girl, perfectly happy with her life. But when one little key falls into her hands, her whole world is turned upside down. She suddenly finds herself whisked into a world full of the one thing she never would’ve thought possible: magic. At first, it appears to be a beautiful thing. But as Alyssa and her sister soon discover, magic, like all things, has a dark side. When her best friend Hazel is taken captive by a land of dark magic, it is up to Alyssa and her friends to rescue both Hazel and the world.
A classic tale of light versus dark, this book will pull you into a universe of love, betrayal, and, most of all, magic.
They wandered aimlessly for a while over the hard, cold ground. An inexplicable feeling of depression and misery began to spread over Alyssa, and she could tell her sister felt it too by the uneasy look on her face. She wanted to curl up in a ball and cry, she wanted to go home and let her mother hold her. She was so cold, so alone, so afraid . . . When the emotion had reached its peak and she was on the verge of sobbing, another thought occurred to her. It wasn’t fair that her parents couldn’t hug her and make her feel better. It wasn’t her fault Hazel was in trouble. But it was most definitely someone’s fault. The depression slowly molded into a deep loathing, an anger coursing through her blood and filling up her soul. She wanted to hurt someone. She wanted to kill someone. Someone had made her suffer, and now they deserved to pay. They should suffer too. The whole world should suffer and be tortured in the most brutal ways because she didn’t have her family, because her sister was in danger, and because her best friend had been captured.
