Aurora Turnleaf is just another farmer’s daughter when she stumbles upon a magnificent city built entirely of see-through crystal. It appears out of nowhere, in a part of the forest she’s never ventured into before. Her guide is Iragos, a light mage, who introduces her to Kayne, the squire – or mage in training – for a dark wizard name Kronos. Unbeknownst to Aurora, Kayne has just stolen the Ythra Orb from the Hallowed Hall on behalf of his master and hidden it in her pack. Suddenly Aurora is thrust into a life or death quest to help Kayne find the mystical land of Morgis, where the Oracles who created the Orb can secure its safety. The path to Morgis itself will be treacherous enough, but those who seek to follow them will make it all the more life threatening. For on their path is the deadly Kronos, who has crafted a fierce legion of vicious minions to intercept Kayne and Aurora at every turn. Meanwhile Aurora and Kayne must battle both the elements and Kronos’ dark magic to complete their quest. Along the way, the two teens from very different worlds must learn to work together to overcome obstacles, one of them being their mutual attraction.
At last there is a final showdown between Kronos and Iragos, but is it one of the powerful mages that win or Aurora and Kayne using their "Entwined Courage" to defeat the darkness and keep the Orb in the light?
