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 visions. Kyle thwarts danger. More than once, their strange new powers save the young warrior's life from the king's murderous plots. But their supernatural abilities soon make them easy prey for 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?
