A prequel to Laura Maisano’s hit series: Illirin…
The trials are looming, but Makai spends his days watching the portals to Earth and filling his sketchbook with drawings of his muse—a strawberry-blonde beauty named Heather. Although breaking the Schism is illegal, taboo, and all sorts of wrong, temptation to escape responsibility pushes him to cross over and meet his crush.
Once just isn’t enough.
Every few days, Makai skips school, sneaking onto Earth to spend time with Heather. Could he stay with her? He’d have to leave his friends, his family…his world. Makai’s free to choose his future, but everyone expects brilliance from the Winged Councilman’s son. He can’t disappoint his father, especially when Father’s office seems to be caught in the whispers of conspiracy. Eventually the danger following the Councilman follows Makai, and even Earth isn’t far enough to run.
