Every four hundred years, an all-powerful being is born. Known as the Mystic, this magical entity must maintain the balance of all realms and save the world in an ultimate battle.
For those within the magical realms, the role of the Mystic is legendary. However, the Mystic has been born in the human realm. She’s not only unaware of her unique destiny, she’s missing. Time is running out. Even if she’s found, no human has ever stood against a demonic realm and lived.
FBI agent, Kate Smith, has spent her entire life hiding from her psychic abilities. As much as she despises being different, she admits they’ve helped her solve some of the most brutal cases. But her latest assignment has her doubting herself. It’s like nothing she’s encountered before, and the gifts she’s grown to rely on aren’t working. Visions haunt her dreams, and questions about her destiny plague her. Worse yet, the answers she discovers are even more terrifying.
For twenty-eight years, Xander Montgomery has searched for the only being who can save all realms. But it’s not easy finding someone unaware of who she is and being stuck in the human realm isn’t helping his disposition. As a Guardian, he has one mission—protect the Mystic. When Kate and Xander finally meet, he’s convinced of one thing. If he can’t persuade the strong-willed stranger to follow him on a deadly quest, the world is doomed.
Just when Kate Montgomery thinks everything is going her way, more humans and magical beings are discovered dead. The Omega missed his chance to kill the Mystic, so the demons found new targets.
Not only does Kate have to prove herself to a new set of warriors and recruit them for the Rising, she and Xander must now venture back into the Human Realm to save as many as they can. She must also find a rare race of powerful beings called Seekers while protecting the Faery Realm.
Xavier, Angie, and Gregory have been left in charge of training all the warriors for the upcoming battle. But Angie finds herself trapped in an unsolvable love triangle, and things go horribly awry. Despair drifts through the hearts of all, when the traitor takes advantage of the many distractions and does the unthinkable.
Kate must go against the Council and launch an attack to restore safety to all the realms. If successful, she will forever be their hero and leader. If she fails, the demons gain control of the world and leave everyone in misery.
With knowledge of the plan to defeat her, Kate must convince the Council to allow humans to join the fight. Once again, she and her team will venture into the Human world to find a way for both realms to become a solid force against evil.
Her quest to attain ultimate power sends her on a journey to Ireland where the cost to attain the light might be her life or someone she loves.
All the pieces must fall perfectly for her to have any hope to maintain peace. If she falls, so does mankind.
