When Gwen's father gets home late from work, it's just another typical night for the museum curator's daughter. Still, there's something strange about the artifacts he's brought home this time, something so unique that she can't help but touch them.

In a blinding flash, the artifacts vanish, and a mysterious man appears in their place. Only he's not a man at all. Forneus is a daemon, an intermediary between gods and man-and the guardian of the very artifacts Gwen has just unwittingly sent back to their places of origin around the globe. 

Gwen doesn't have time to absorb this before a new figure emerges: Phenex, the human-personification of the legendary bird, himself. The next thing she knows, she's being whisked away from the comfort of her home into a world beyond her wildest imaginings. 

When she thinks things couldn't possibly get any more complicated, she's proven wrong. Because those bizarre artifacts? They were protective seals to a place called Nowhere; a prison realm created by the gods to contain all of the malevolent forces Gwen has only heard about in bedtime stories. 

Now those very same forces are on the rampage, intent on revenge against the gods whom imprisoned them-and they don't care who else gets hurt along the way. Possessing innate powers she can't even begin to understand, it is up to Gwen, with the help of her two mysterious allies, Forneus and Phenex, to reclaim the lost artifacts before someone far more sinister does...

Drat! I hate when I'm faced with this conundrum: should I keep reading *claps her hands excitedly* or go to bed? :( Decisions!

Ooh. The first paragraph hit me. I liked it. The descriptions and syntax were well-used. I liked the verbs as it showed what type of character Forneus is. Also, the ending was very intense. I'm intrigued. Great read.

I love prologues like this! But do tell ^^" this guy just flapped on the ground like a slab of dead meat and he felt no pain?
                              I think you could add a bit of distribution to that- I mean description.
                              I love relaxing and immersive your style is!
