For centuries, the Four Lands enjoyed freedom and peace, protected by a magical barrier from the dark dimension known as the Forbidding. But now the unthinkable is happening: the ancient wards securing the border have begun to erode - and the monstrous creatures imprisoned there are poised to spill forth, seeking their revenge.

Young Elf Arling Elessedil possesses the means to close the breach, but her efforts may be doomed when she is taken captive. The only hope lies with her determined sister Aphen, who bears the Elfstones and commands their magic. Now the fate of their world rests upon her shoulders . . .

When she returns to the small coastal town in northern California where she grew up right before Christmas to attend her sister's wedding, she decides to settle there. She intends to open a book store in a charming, but run-down and spooky historic house. While Kate is clearing out the basement an earthquake occurs, knocking down part of the wall and revealing a burial crypt. Kate turns to the handsome carpenter who is helping her renovate the house. But Kate begins to sense that neither the carpenter nor the law nor any other worldly power can help her arrest the evil that was released from the crypt. She will have to summon all of her supernatural power - and that of her six sisters - to destroy the evil that is casting a dark shadow over her hometown.Please note this story is also available in the Drake Sisters duo Magic Before Christmas
