Break a mirror in your bedroom, and in some other world, a nation crumbles. — Mere folklore...or so Val thinks until a stranger with sand-colored eyes gives him a crystal amulet and a tale that will change the rest of his... more » life.
Six months earlier, Val had taken pretty Erin Wyler to the hospital in his ambulance. During a martial-arts competition, she'd suddenly become transformed, shouting that Mason, her opponent, was her age old enemy and would kill her...so she had killed him, before a crowd of spectators. Although confined to a mental institution, she has filled Val's thoughts ever since, especially after Mason's diary reveals a fantasy involving a sword wielding female foe who is the image of Erin. Now, thanks to the mysterious sandy eyed man and his amulet, Erin can travel to this other world, called Ends world. She is reluctant at first; since the alien planet has also been the setting for her lifelong fantasies, she knows its injustices and squalor. Yet her destiny can never be fulfilled if she remains on Earth.« less
