If last night was real, Ariel should be dead. She’s not, but her mother has disappeared, there are bruise marks on her neck and the hideous beast in the photo looks frighteningly familiar.
You can’t send police into a tunnel that doesn’t exist after a villain they can’t see, so when shadow demons kidnap her mother, Ariel has to mount the rescue mission herself. She enters a hidden layer of reality where rocks move, reeds whisper, people fly and sadistic demons who feed on fear are hunting her. If the quirky old guide who’s teaching her to locate and unleash her inner power knows why the slimy beasts are so keen to kill her, he isn’t telling, and she’s not sure she really wants to know.
While she’s battling murderous earth spirits, treacherous terrain, and self doubt, Ariel falls in love with Nick, a Warrior whose gaze sometimes feels like a caress and sometimes like a sledgehammer. If she touches him, she risks being zapped with a bolt of electricity more in character with a downed power-line than a sexy guy. Not only that, but Ariel can’t afford the distraction of an intimate relationship, and he has a girlfriend already. She vows to stay away, but he doesn’t seem to share her reservations. Will she get it all together in time to defeat the demons before they kill her and enslave her mother?
Ariel’s journey challenges her perception, tests her awareness and takes her deep into her heart and mind to confront, and ultimately transcend, her fear and anger.
