Despite the devastating loss of her mother as a teenager, Liv Worthington has grown to become a successful newspaper editor-living a normal workaholic life in New York City. But her secure and comfortable existence changes the day she meets Wes, a handsome stranger who has been following her.
This chance meeting with Wes turns Liv's life upside down and forces her grandmother to reveal a long-held family secret-a secret linked to her mother's death-that could have even more dire consequences. Liv discovers that the fairytales her grandmother spun years ago about another world called Lysterium are actually true. For more than sixty years, she has been harboring Lysterium's book of prophecy, a tome that speaks about a woman in the family who would overthrow the evil Umaro and restore peace to Lysterium.
Liv discovers that she is the woman spoken about in the book-the key to Lysterium's salvation or demise. As her past unravels, Liv must make a difficult decision that will not only greatly affect her future, but Lysterium's as well.
