Something is rotten in Nel Mezzo. When a rift in virtual reality sends an evil trickster into the real world, Celeste must conquer him before he destroys Nel Mezzo. But when the battle begins, the trickster banishes her to an alien planet across the universe.
Before Celeste can find her way back, there are matters of allegiance to resolve between the Original Creatures and the Outsiders who inhabit this curious planet. Caught between two opposing factions, Gabe confronts inner demons implanted by the Outsiders, while Celeste learns the mysterious ways of the Original Creatures. It doesn’t help matters that one of the creatures is a handsome, shapeshifting empath who is determined to win Celeste’s heart.
With or without Gabe, Celeste must find a way to return home before time runs out. Nel Mezzo is not the only place in danger. The inter-dimensional rift now threatens the future of Earth. Can Celeste save them both?
