When Anna Marshall wished she could be anywhere but Ames, Iowa, and anything but a singer and music instructor at Iowa State University, she did so at exactly the wrong time and found herself pulled from Iowa to the very different world of Erde.

Rising to power in Defalk may have been the easy part; now Anna will need all her skill merely to hold on to what’s she’s managed to accomplish so far.
