Thrown into a new world where nothing is as it seems, Chess is reunited with a long-lost childhood friend, Tom Williams. With Tom's help, she must work out who to trust as vying forces race to control her. But first she must find her own power and stop waiting for other people to save her.
She is the one she's been waiting for.
The first in a thrilling new trilogy.
