Ephemeral: A Journey Of Souls
Ephemeral: The concept of things being transitory, fleeting-existing only briefly.
* * *
Sweet and delicate Everette Grein believes that everyone deserves a second chance. Growing up in a small village, she harbors no hate in her heart. Overlooking the negative, and only seeing goodness in peoples' heart. To her, life is beautiful. To many others, life is cruel. Because with her special ability, there are certain repercussions. Apathy, emptiness, a certain dull look in the hosts' eyes-are just one of the few symptoms. For some, a Second Chance equates more pain.
The gift of revival always comes at a price. But not all share her ideals. Some believe second chances shouldn't exist. That the laws of nature, the laws of Gods, should be adhered.
Eventually, life in her melancholy little village is put to an end. When the Queen of Felencia-a woman without a King-summons her for a very special task, Everette sees it as an opportunity. Knowing fully well she will be used for her powers, she decides to go regardless. But little does she know, under Queen Maviare's protection, nothing is what it seems.
Between the Queen's struggle with building alliances and maintaining her reputation, Everette has gained the attention of people that wish for her to simply disappear.
When the equilibrium begins to crack, there will be consequences. In this new world, Everette will learn, that the gift of life-will always follow death.
