A civilization is threatened, and she may hold the key to the world’s survival... As a child, Sali watched her mother vanish into thin air. Despite knowing what she saw, no one believed her—including her family and the police. Years later, she receives an anonymous note, hinting at her mother’s whereabouts. Unexpectedly, Sali is pulled into a dying world where she meets Yakhar, a young man who is next in line to rule over Centaura, a world of five kingdoms. A world that seems strangely familiar to Sali. But the looming death of the planet has unleashed a dormant threat. Together, Sali and Yakhar must convince the council of elders to change a centuries-old law to defeat a race of powerful beings, or Centaura, and Sali’s mom, may be lost forever.
