The Perilous Gate by J.J. Eliyas
Just beyond your fingertips is another world. It's in the whisper of the wind, the sigh of the trees. It's the shadow in the mirror or the fleeting glance of something out of the corner of your eye.
All reality depends on frame of reference; what if one moment you were walking across a college campus or down a busy city street and the next you were fighting for your life in land where dark magic prevailed, the edge of sword determined if you lived or died, and your fate was linked to fate of an alien world?
Six friends become the catalysts for an upheaval of epic proportions, their very presence changing the world of Carn, even as it changes them in ways they could never have imagined. And their only hope of returning to the world they know is to find the necromancer who brought them to this strange land, through the Perilous Gate.
