The Ancient Powers: The Savior
"The way this should have gone: Mom, Payton, Dad, and me living a fairytale happily-ever-after with a few bumps in the road, but thriving as a not-perfect-but-happy family. For most people, and most stories, that's how it would have gone. But life doesn't like to throw the happy things at me. I mean, it did for about nine years, I guess, but that's where the line was cut. No more happiness for Skylar. Time to grow up and face the reality: there's no such thing as a happy ending, no prince charming, no fairytales-come-true."
Skylar Blu is the girl who works at the bookshop with her father, the girl who constantly has her nose in a book, the girl who only finds peace in her own personal chaos, the girl who no one takes a second look at. She lives her life half in the past and trying to escape the present, wishing in all her heart for the return of her missing mother and sister. She's not happy and she doesn't know what's next for her.
But, when men wearing all black and carrying guns invade her house, calling her strange names and looking to kidnap her and her father, it's up to Skylar to rely on her own instincts and save herself and her family, but how, when she's never known herself to be strong enough to match a character in one of her own books?
