Seventeen-year-old Alexis Mackie only ever wanted one thing—for the boy next door to finally notice her. But a split second is all it took to change everything. When she travels to a remote Canadian island with her geologist parents to monitor seismic activity, she finds herself trapped in the ‘epicenter’. Alone in a cave struggling to free herself from the rubble, she stumbles into a mysterious land full of tropical forest and mythical creatures…
Stepping into unfamiliar surroundings, she’s saved from the deadly claws of a vicious beast by a handsome stranger who offers to help her find her way home. But with rebels closing in on discovering her true identity and the ruling Magistrate sealing up the portals to their secret realm, Alexis fears they may never let her leave.
