A centuries-old legend foretells of twins who will one day save the earth. Lysandra and Leondra have been raised by their parents with the notion that they could possibly be those destined twins.

A once kaleidoscope-colored land is now brown. Water sources have become nonexistent leaving behind only lethal bodies of water. Animals and people disappear beneath the tempting waters never to resurface.

As the world falls apart the twins become separated. Alone and injured, Lysandra ventures forward trying to locate and reunite with her family. Instead she slips beneath the river's surface discovering a new world where no human has ever survived before.

A prophecy. A dying world. Twins, Leondra and Lysandra are compelled to make the ultimate sacrifice for an entirely new world.

“I have to get out of here” Lysandra whispered as the ocean floor trembled beneath her. She tumbled out of the clam seat crawling toward the main doorway. There was no way she could formulate a thought to convince her body to swim with any amount of graceful coordination. The stupid octopus blocked her way making her growl with frustration. The King instantly reacted. He scooped her up rushing her away from everyone. He swam at a fast pace putting distance between her and the palace.

“Your Grace” the sentinels called in panic. “We will take her. There’s no need to place yourself in danger!”

Lysandra felt the splinters in her heart spread and fracture open. She could no longer ignore the cracks in her chest. Why had her father not told them that his tales held some truth? How could he have allowed the world to deteriorate as it had? She screamed out her frustration as the King gently put her down. Her tears came in torrents but she didn’t hold them back. This pain was an accumulation of everything she’d lost. She welcomed the anger and grief. This could have all been avoided: Phoebe’s starvation and dehydration, ultimately leading to her death… The loss of her family…. The hell she’d been through….

“Why daddy” she screamed at the ocean but it had no response. Instead Lysandra watched as the waves grew in height with the rain pounding in droves. With each scream she released hurricane-force winds that blew across the ocean. Her anger magnified; she felt the energy emanating from her skin as it leapt off and slashed lightning across the skies. It was a brutal release on the Earth but it offered her comfort for those brief moments. She wanted to care about what was happening but the overwhelming grief took over.

Strong dark arms wrapped around her body holding her tightly. His hard, smooth skin diffused the vibrating rage within her. He offered no empty words or useless promises. He just held her until the anger diminished and she regained control of her emotions. The moment she calmed down the hurricane ceased. She blinked in horrified wonder at their surroundings. She didn’t know how but she’d done that. She’d caused the hurricane.

His warmth seeped into her offering the comfort she so desperately needed. It had been so long since she’d just been held. He kissed her temple, making her shiver as she took a last cleansing breath.
