The Onchei are back.
And trouble looms…
The Onchei want to learn what happened to their brethren on Algoran from the only survivor, Zeetra. Yet they learn instead she has broken the Onchei’s highest law: never intermarry or have children with another race. For this, she now faces execution.
Jordan SnowFire fears the Onchei will blame the Mokta and seek retribution soon. Only an ancient heirloom, which contains the ultimate Onchei knowledge, can save the Mokta…except it’s on Earth, a world she hasn’t seen in decades.
Jordan sends her son, Arrow, and her friend’s daughter, Maska, to rescue Zeetra while she travels back to Earth to seek the Onchei artifact. What tie is there between a thousand-year-old object and Jordan’s ancestors? Could this explain why she and her mother were originally abducted and brought to Algoran?
In the skies of Algoran, a final confrontation looms between the Onchei and the Mokta. And on Earth, Jordan finds more than she could have possibly imagined…

Read the Excerpt and enter this amazing world!!
A few minutes later, she watched Bopol walk outside the hut and light the Observance Torch. After the Gulstaa War ended and she nearly lost herself in grief, Jordan had ascended the Mokta Mountain searching for answers from God. Half out of her mind, she had been humbled, comforted, and encouraged by the response she had received. And since then, she had created a system to allow her to pray and seek wisdom from Him whenever she needed to without leaving the village. She had maintained this method for forty cycles.
The Observance Torch was the same as any other torch, but it was adorned with red jula crystals, reinforced with twine, and its top was dipped in animal fat and dusted with crushed dry jikpal leaves which made the flames take on a violet shade. When the Observance Torch was lit, it told the villagers passing by her hut not to enter, since the Chieftess was seeking wisdom and guidance from the Father of Spirits whom she called God.
As a girl, Jordan had seen people pray on television shows, movies, and a few times at school after tragedies occurred. Yet she had never understood the importance of prayer until nearly dying on this world so far from the one she was born on. On the Mokta Mountain, she had felt the presence of the Divine and seen His power firsthand. Over the decades, she had learned to trust in Him.
She lowered herself onto her knees and bowed to the floor, arms stretched before her, and spoke aloud.
“Mightiest of the Mighty, I need your help,” she began. “My people need me. As their Chieftess, I am responsible for their survival. The Onchei will be angry when they learn what SnowFire — what my gemta — did to their people on Algoran. They will want revenge on the Mokta. They have weapons and technology I cannot understand nor fight.
“If I try to do this on my own, I will fail. And my people will die. My family will die. Please, do not let that happen! Show me what I need to do, how to handle this.”
