Sixteen-year-old Desirae Cradle knows how to survive in the human world, but knowing and doing are two different things.
Until her mother disappeared under questionable circumstances, Desirae lived as part of a magical community kept secret from humans for more than 4,000 years. But not all of Desirae's people live on Earth. Some live in the Otherworld, exiled there after an ancient war. They are known as the Faye and still seek a way back to Earth.
With feelings of abandonment, and no other family among her kind, Desirae makes her way in the human world using the only skill she has-knowing how to cross between Earth and Otherworld. She is recruited to participate in illegal activity helping her kind cross over. But when a crossing goes bad, and she accidently allows a dangerous Faye onto Earth, Desirae has to do something she swore she never would - go back home.
Determined to not only fix her mistake but to mend old friendships, Desirae returns to the community she abandoned. But the Faye are after more than she thought. With lingering questions about what really happened to her mother and the discovery that her friends have changed even more than she has, Desirae finds that stopping the Faye and regaining her friend's trust might not be as easy as she hoped.
This is a completed work, approx 75,000 words. I plan to post at least once a week
