Halan was once a powerless princess. Now she’s taken her rightful place as queen of the Magi Kingdom—but she wonders if she’ll ever be the ruler her people deserve. And Nalah used to be a powerful pauper. Now she’s the Queen’s Sword—but the more Nalah’s powers grow, the more unruly they become.
One vision changes everything. Nalah embarks on a quest across the desert to harness her powers, while Halan must travel through the Transcendent Mirror to help the Thaumas of New Hadar.
As a dark threat draws closer, can Nalah and Halan reunite to save both worlds—and the future of magic?

She came up with the idea for Halan’s and Nalah’s worlds while walking on the sand one day, when she imagined that each grain had the potential for magic.
