Lillian always loved stories about myths and monsters—until she found herself inside one, fighting for her life.
A Sister Lost
When Lillian was ten, her older sister disappeared. Days turned into weeks, and weeks into months. Lillian looked out the window every morning, hoping to see her sister walking up the street. But she only saw empty sidewalks.
Two years later, Lillian felt her sister calling to her. She couldn't explain it. It wasn't a dream, and it wasn't her imagination—at least, she hoped not. Lillian felt herself called to the beach where her sister had disappeared. She asked her best friends, Katy and Maisy, to go with her.
A World Found
It was late at night. The beach was empty—except for a mysterious boy who seemed to be waiting for them. His name was Jack, and he claimed to be from a mythical world called Lanodeka. Lillian realized it was Jack who had been summoning her. He promised to bring Lillian to "the monster realm" where her sister was in great danger.
Jack led the three friends into an underground portal. But something had changed since Jack was last here. Now the portal was guarded, as if someone—perhaps Lillian's own sister—didn't want Lillian entering Lanodeka. But why?
The mystery only deepened as Jack led Lillian and her friends through the tunnel, chased by Medusa herself. They escaped into Lanodeka, but it was like escaping into a dream. Here, monsters were real.
Threat of War
Soon the three friends find themselves caught up in a civil war—with dragons and griffins on one side, and elves and rocs and harpies on the other. But what was the war about? How was Lillian's sister involved? And what terrible secret seemed to be hiding behind everything in this strange world?
To find the answers to those questions, Lillian must find her sister. And to do that, she must cross a sea guarded by Krakens and sirens, race through a dark forest haunted by elves and chimeras, and pass mountains ruled by griffins and rocs.
But what else can she do?
With Katy and Maisy by her side, Lillian begins an adventure that will challenge everything she knows about what's real and what's myth, and force her to choose sides in a war that may determine the fate of not only Lanodeka, but Earth as well.
