Sefia is in danger. Her parents were killed when she was a child and now her aunt has been kidnapped - all because of a strange rectangular object Sefia inherited. Soon she realizes that this object is a book - something unknown in her world - and that it is powerful and magical, and there are those who would stop at nothing to take it from her. As Sefia flees from assassins and attempts to rescue her aunt, she meets a boy with a dark past and a crew of swashbuckling pirates. And as she learns to read the pages of her book, the story contained within it begins to intertwine with, and even alter, her own journey. This is a book full of magic and adventure -- and look for a secret message hidden in the pages, too!  (Oklahoma High School Sequoyah Award, 2018)
