Sara’s pretty sure her life is perfect.
Not only are she and Micah finally married, her father, who’d been missing since the Magic Wars, has been found. Actually, he just strode up to the manor’s front door, but whatever. Sara knows better than to look a gift horse in the mouth.
But Baudoin Corbeau isn’t content to return to family life. He’s decided that he will be the force of change in the Mundane world, and lead the Elemental resistance to victory with his children at his side. What’s worse, Baudoin doesn’t approve of Sara’s marriage, and makes every attempt to separate her from Micah.
After a visit to the Mundane realm leaves Sara, Max and Sadie imprisoned by the Peacekeepers, Sara’s doubts creep to the surface. Is her father right? Does she belong in the Mundane realm, not the Otherworld? Is Micah really the right man–make that elf–for her?
Was marrying him a mistake?
It’s been an interesting few months.
It all started when I cut out during my lunch break and took a nap in my car. I had the best dream of my life, starring a sexy man with silver hair. That man turned out to be Micah Silverstrand, and elf from the Otherworld. Even though I’d hidden who and what I was for most of my life, Micah had instantly known that I was an Elemental like him. Let me explain what a big deal that is. When I was a kid, Elementals and Mundane humans existed side by side, not quite in harmony but we got along well enough. Then there was a war, and the Mundane army won; ironically, they called themselves Peacekeepers. No matter what they called themselves, the Elementals still lost, and magic was declared illegal.
For me the wars were much more personal, since my father, Baudoin Corbeau, went missing and was presumed dead. A few years later my older brother, Max, was arrested for using magic and shipped off to some detention facility where we couldn’t even visit him. My dream man, Micah, helped me rescue Max. Along the way we learned that my younger sister, Sadie, was the Inheritor of Metal, as in the most powerful metal Elemental in existence. That was a shocker. We also discovered that the Elemental ruler, the Iron Queen, was in with the Peacekeepers. Together, Micah, my family, and I defeated the queen, and put a serious dent in the Peacekeepers operation, so that was good.
I also learned that my best friend, Juliana, was a Peacekeeper. That was not so good.
After the Iron Queen’s defeat, the Gold Queen was restored to power. Since the Corbeau’s were fugitives, my family and I moved into Micah’s home in the Otherworld full time—which meant that poor Micah went from living by himself to having a house full of in-laws in the blink of an eye. In addition to having more faces around the breakfast table, Max was hell bent on finding out what had happened to Dad. While Max was traipsing all over the Otherworld causing trouble, the Gold Queen held a grand event where everyone pledged a blood oath to her… Except Sadie, the Inheritor of Metal. It wasn’t Sadie’s fault. She just thought the blood was gross.
While Micah tried convincing the Gold Queen that the Inheritor wasn’t plotting against her, Max’s schemes to find Dad led us to the Goblin Market. We didn’t find Dad, but we did have a near fatal run-in with one of the Gold Queen’s henchmen. Micah almost died. I have never been so scared in my entire life as when I thought I’d lose him.
But Micah did live, and after a few weeks he was fully recovered. We celebrated by getting married, with Max walking me down the aisle instead of Dad. Then, in the strangest turn of events yet, Dad walked right up to our front door.
And here’s what happened next.
