When 16 year old Kate Watzen sees her future in a dream, she can hardly believe the life of a Chosen could really be hers. Unlike the other teenagers on her home planet, she's had no training to draw out the legendary Gifts the galaxy's peacekeepers are known for. Despite her concerns, she goes to be tested anyway, only to discover she is exactly who the Chosen have been waiting for.
Moving from her small farming community to study at a school full of hundreds of aliens, Kate's Gifts begin to manifest, drawing her into the focus of a ruthless man, Lord Ruark, who wishes to use her abilities to gain access to an object of great knowledge and power, the Book of the Golden One.
Kate's unwillingness to help him leads to a confrontation endangering all those she loves, including her best friend, Ben, who will do anything to protect her, and the stranger who's been training her through dreams, James, whose mysterious past may lead her into more danger than she realizes.
Through these trials, Kate discovers the strength that has been dormant within her, showing her that she is anything but ordinary, and the small town life she had was full of mystery, adventure, intrigue, and a betrayal far beyond anything she could have imagined.
Two men love her, but her heart only beats for one thing: saving the galaxy.
It has only been a few months since Kate left her home 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 surprising villains, Kate's experiences have far surpassed anything she expected for her life.
Now as she 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 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 her familiar friend or the new relationship that seems inevitable, or will she choose duty above them both?
