When the galaxy is threatened by a sinister creature known as Lord Ruark, sixteen-year-old Kate Watzen, one of the Chosen, will have to hone her new-found abilities and gather her strength in order to stop him and save everyone from destruction, but doing so won't come easily.
With her best friend Ben being used against his will, and the new boy in her life, James, trying to convince her to leave Ben behind, her mission to find the last Nexus and save the galaxy seems even further out of reach.
If she can combine her special Gifts with others like her, they will overcome the evil that is brewing, but getting past all of the hurdles that stand in her way will require she steel her resolve and power forward. Can this girl from a small farming community muster up the strength and courage to move forward before it is too late?
It has only been a few months since Kate left her small farm to attend a training school for the Chosen, but in that time Kate's life has been turned upside down. From Words of Power and magic building through her fingers, to allies like the Nexus and battles with grotesque villains, Kate's experiences have far surpassed anything she expected for her life.
Now as Kate faces imminent battle, she is devastated to find herself thrown away from the fray and into an unknown world. Will she return in time to save those she loves? Or will she lose everyone to the those who hunt her?
In the midst of the war brewing with Lord Ruark, Kate is also in the middle of a battle for her heart. With Ben admitting his love and James ready to take things to the next level, will Kate choose the love that's grown stronger over the years, or the fire that ignited overnight?
When the dust cleared and all was done, Ben was left alone to pick up the pieces of his life. Find out what happened in the seven years that passed between the final battle and his departure from Tevan and Lydia.
