Strong, insightful, cunning and brave... Are words that did not describe Julie Hargrave. She was a timid girl - Julie made her way in life by going through it unnoticed. Never before had she stood up for herself. Not even when the cops handcuffed her and threw her in the back of their squad car at prom. No one believed her when she said the clique of popular girls had used her as a punching bag. Julie didn't fight back... it wasn't in her nature. But, all of that changes when the safe, lonely world she calls home is ripped away. Julie is propelled into another realm. The new reality is one of light, beauty and magic, where her new life demands she becomes someone she's not. For, below the magical kingdom lurks a great evil. The darkness beneath the treetop world threatens to destroy all of the newly discovered light and magic in Julie's life. And for once, she must fight for not only her life, but the lives of everyone in the bright new world. Or, die trying.
