In one day Scai has gone from being considered just unusual by the
people of her little Welsh village to an outcast fleeing for her life. Left on
the church steps as a baby, she knows nothing of her history—or her abilities.
Did she really stop the rain just by wishing it to stop? But she is determined
to learn all she can. Travelling alone to find her family seems to be the only
way she’s going to find the answers she seeks.
Her journey leads her to the comical old knight Sir Dagonet, who
tells her that she is one of a magical people called the Vallen. Together they
continue on, joined by the handsome Dylan and the fiery Bridget on a new quest—to
find the fabled Merlin’s Chalice, said to hold all the power of the entrapped
wizard. Together, Scai, Dylan and Bridget discover that they are the long
awaited Children of Avalon, destined to save the world from power-hungry Lady
Nimuë—unless she kills them first.
Along the way, Scai finds magic—both in the wind and air that she can
control at will, and in the sweet ache of a first love that she cannot.
