When Effie gets stuck in the veil between her world and the next, she learns of long kept secrets; who Foster really is, who she is supposed to be, and maybe most importantly, that Hink has been keeping secrets of his own.
Saving her people is no longer just a calling. She has been chosen. The Guardian of the Arcanos is a protector of magic and Arcani, ensuring balance between the realms. No one can tell her what it means. No one even knows who the last chosen one was. She must come face to face with who she will become and the power of the Guardian's tome just waiting to be unleashed.
The spirits of Aether foretell her future with Foster, and the news leaves them desperate and heartbroken. Still, it reinforces her decision to choose to be with the man she loves. And, despite the three secrets she's told Hink has kept from her, she choose to believe that he is still her best friend--still the man who gave up his life to the Bellatores to keep her safe.
