Elana becomes the key to a dangerous plan to turn back the invasion of Andrecia by an aggressive young space-faring civilization.

Georyn, youngest son of a poor Andrecian woodcutter, knows only that there is a terrible dragon on the other side of the enchanted forest. In his mind, Elana is the Enchantress from the Stars who has come to test him, to prove he is worthy of defeating the dragon and its powerful minions. Ultimately, he must pit his innocent faith in her magic against foes who have come from a world beyond his comprehension.

Forced to assume responsibility for undoing the damage, Elana finds that only she–at great cost–can prevent an immediate war of annihilation.

Unaware of the fate that has befallen Crossroads, TripStone’s comrade Ghost and his pregnant wife Piri search for a home where they can raise their hybrid child in peace. But no place is safe, and Piri risks giving birth in the deepest heart of danger.
