*WATTYS 2016 WINNER - HIDDEN GEMS* "In the beginning, there was the cold and the night..." Two thousand years ago, the Prophecy of Fire and Light foretold the coming of the Queen Empress who would lead the Empire through a time of peace and tranquility. Instead, a forbidden love for the Empress raged a war that ravaged the land, and the death toll rose until the final, bloody battle. Centuries later, Alexandra, an average twenty-something from Boston, finds herself stuck in this unfamiliar realm of mystery and magic, where betrayal and revenge will be as crucial to her survival as love and honor. As the predestined Queen Empress, only Alex can determine the fate of the Empire, and her decisions alone could tear her new home, and her heart, apart at the seams.
