Elara Anderson has just moved to Scotland for a fresh start with her family. She is settling into college, making new friends. But on her 17th birthday, she must leave behind everyone she knows and loves after discovering that she is a witch, placed in the human world as a baby to be a societal experiment.
However, plenty of problems come hand in hand with her new life. Elara’s magic is dangerous and unpredictable, and with the risk of being exiled to Helabasus by her corrupted leader Forneus. Elara faces many obstacles in the witchy wonderland of Felicia.
She doesn’t know who to trust when her parents aren’t all they seem. Her feelings for her brooding guide Archer grow despite her loyal boyfriend Xander who is waiting for her at home. Which is an added complication, she hadn’t figured on.
Elara must come to terms with her new found witch powers while proving herself to Forneus and the other witches. But not everybody agrees with the experiment and some oppose the arrival of the heralded newcomer among them.
