The Empire values obedience. But Melody Pickle has never been obedient.
Melody’s last day in her sleepy hometown starts innocently enough, with a boring day in school followed by a lovely afternoon in the park. However, when a mysterious portal bursts open, Melody ends up trapped in a magical world ruled by an evil Emperor. Confronted with werewolves, fairies, cursed shadows, and powerful witches and wizards, she desperately seeks to escape one of the Emperor’s prisons.
In this novella, Melody must make a choice: trust the allies she meets or try to escape on her own, and the consequences of her decision could be deadly.
