**The hardback and paperback versions have the same story. The only real differences are the cover and some aesthetic changes in formatting in the hardback.***
"My name is Astra Downs, and in three days I may destroy the world."
The earth trembles and the stars fall. Things that were long forgotten return and Astra and her twin, Kato, are at the center of it all. Magic has been dead for centuries, but when Astra and Kato are born, it's a sign that something is about to happen. No twins have ever been born before—not in their country of Callenia or anywhere else on their continent. Beneath their skin prowls an unknown, ancient power and the closer they get to their eighteenth birthday, the closer it comes to breaking free.
When a handsome young stranger with connections to the Prince of Callenia appears in their nothing town of Timberborn, they may finally have access to the answers they've been seeking their entire lives. Soon, they're running for their lives from a fearful king and the trust of strangers and new friends may be their only chance at survival and controlling their manifesting powers.
