Passages #1: Darien's Rise
"Where in the world am I," Anna wonders.
One minute she and her brother Kyle were exploring the creepy
abandoned house outside of town. The next minute, they were hurtled
into another world… pawns in a power struggle between a mad king and
his valiant general, the rightful heir to the throne. Anna sees

slave traders, kidnappers, and other bitter foes of faith. Are they
at the mercy of these strange powers forever? And why does the
Unseen One—the deity so revered by the faithful—seem powerless to do
the one thing they most want: to return them to Odyssey?
