The Crystal Orb
While out hunting in the woods near her village, Alia stumbles upon a dying mage.

Accompanying her on the quest are her twin sister, a warrior, and an old friend. But the road to the elven capital is dangerous, and their ultimate mission to protect the orb proves even more perilous. After a frightening vision of the future, Alia is torn between trusting her oldest friend or the man she is falling for. Facing an uncertain fate, Alia must find a way to foil a plot to destroy mankind before it’s too late.
