When a Valkyrie falls from the sky to tell two normal teenagers, Laina and Will, they have the fate of two worlds in their hands, they are shocked and skeptical.
But with Gods and Goddesses placing wagers, Valkyries joining the fight, and powerful Witches and Wizards taking sides, trouble is brewing. Behind a veil lies a mirror world to Earth, one that runs on magic. But as magic begins to seep out of Htrea and fewer are born with the Talent, the Tainted, those without the ability to do magic, are being persecuted and exterminated. Htrae is run by a mad Empress and a force of rebels -- including Will and Laina's fire-wielding warrior-general sister, Rowan and her best friend, the cheeky Wizard Wiz-kid, Joel -- is garnering warriors for a fight. According to prophecy, the fate of the war of two worlds lies in the hands of one of three siblings: a son or daughter of the remaining bloodline of the Kingdom of Aary. Will they be able to fight together to survive and win the Witch War?
