Nothing is ever as it seems… to glimpse beneath the surface is to see a world revealed. On the surface, Siofra is just a normal Irish teenager into music, boys and fun. But slowly Siofra starts to realise that she can no longer take anything for granted. Beneath the surface, there is myth, mystery and magic at play, and she is at its centre. Travelling through ancient realms of light and shadow, Siofra must find her destiny and save her people… if she can.
