Crys (pronounced Kris) nosily opens a package from her aunt to her mother that contains an old undecipherable book. As Crys and her sister, Becca, look at the book, Becca goes into a catatonic state. Crys finds that her mom and aunt are hiding a big family secret that includes a secret society. Crys is willing to do whatever it takes to help Becca and she finds herself interrogating a guy named Ferrell who she doesn’t know if she can trust. Meanwhile, Becca has been thrown into another world through a different dimension, with only one guy that can see her and he has problems of his own.
This book is told from three different perspectives-Crys, Ferrell and Becca. I loved the story line because it has adventure, romance and mystery. I think this is the beginning to a new series that will be just as entertaining as Rhodes Falling Kingdom series. It does leave the ending open and I can’t wait to read more.
