is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly
disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia
unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and
transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinelsâ€”magical
knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the
gateway booksâ€”rescue them from a demonic hound.
Jumping into some of the world’s most beautiful libraries would be a
dream come true for Gia, if she werenâ€™t busyÂ resisting her heartÂ or
dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds.
Add a French flirtÂ obsessed with Arik and aÂ flingÂ with a young wizard,
and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik’s world and
her own, before both are destroyed.
