Oksa Pollock is a normal thirteen-year-old girl, starting a new life in London.
New lives, new friends, a new school and new adventures.
But bizarre things start happening around Oksa-she finds she can produce fire from her hands, move objects with her mind, and even fly. Finally the truth emerges...her family fled Edefia, their magical, hidden homeland years ago. And more than that: Oksa is their queen... Oksa will be thrown into a wilder adventure than she could ever have imagined.
She must triumph over her enemies. The whole of Edefia is counting on her. A new family moves in near Vitello, only they don't have a cool boy for him to play with, just a yucky girl. And it won't be fun to play with a yucky girl and her crazy hamster.
