Monica Avery Helions' life has been mostly normal, and she's fine with that. But now she's convinced that she's gone off her bonkers. Completely and totally insane.
What else could possibly explain how her mother came back from the ashes, and how she got picked up by an elf to travel to another world? Suddenly, she was plucked out of Earth and placed in a world where she would become a headmistress to a school of knights and those who practice magic.
However, a dark future lies ahead of Valiron. And as she spends more time in this strange new world, she realizes that it was indeed in danger and she can no longer neglect the fact that she is the chosen one who shall lead Avillion into battle with the satanic lord, Heildam.
This wasn't what Avery had in mind for her two months off of work, but as she gets acquainted with quirky twins, a bubbly red-head, a crazily smart warlock and an arrogant lord, she feels more at home than she's ever been in 12 years.
From walking through fire to fighting eight headed lions, Avery must survive the attacks and defend not only the school, but the heart of Valiron itself.
