Eighteen-year-old Alex Chegasa, one of the first generation to be raised on post-apocalyptic Earth, was taught to embrace her magical gifts.
After the Orange, as the planet burned, magic trickled in. The bombs that had wiped out most life ripped open the barrier between worlds. Can the next generation, connected to the magic, be the solution to mankind’s problems or are they destined to repeat the mistakes of their ancestors?
Did the Orange, the very thing that ravaged the planet, also provide the solution? Or is magic more than a coincidence?
While Alex searches for somewhere to belong, in Massachusetts, she questions if survival is enough when she comes to understand that magic, used by the wrong people, could be more dangerous than the power of the generations before her.
Meanwhile, in a parallel story, we meet eight-hundred-year-old Fae, Billey NicNevin. With a past she doesn’t remember, she struggles to fit into Nuadh Caled (New Scotland) as it rebuilds itself. When she meets a woman whose soul calls to her, will she find her missing piece or tumble into insanity?
Are their destinies connected?
WHAT IF THE FANTASTICAL STORIES FROM ALEX’S CHILDHOOD WERE TRUE?

About the Author
Beverley J. Hall was born in Kent, England, although her family returned to Scotland before her second birthday, which explains her accent. She grew up in North Lanarkshire, surrounded by rolling Scottish hills with her nose in a book.
She returned to South East England to study Art and Design at both Winchester School of Art and Central St Martins, in London. It was here she discovered her love of story-telling, as she realized that, no matter the medium, it was something her ADHD brain could thrive in.
After teaching for many years, she was diagnosed with a chronic illness and found her voice. She finally took the massive leap and returned to study an M.A. in Creative Writing to develop her skill and embraced her love of books, both reading and writing.
