All Leah wants is a nice normal life with her husband Owen. But Owen isn't normal. He remembers nothing from the first fifteen years of his life and Leah worries that one day his past will snatch him away.
But when it finally does, she refuses to let it.
On the day Owen disappears, Leah goes looking for him. She gets no further than the end of the driveway when a monster dog attacks her, only to be felled by an arrow shot by a stranger. An arrow. Then the stranger drags her out of immediate danger through a portal to Jilimar.
Jilimar: a world on the verge of madness and war.
Leah must learn to survive in this strange place where the touch of a wraith can cause murderous madness and staying out in storm season spells certain death. She grows fond of the kind strangers who take her in and teach her the rituals that help protect against the wraiths. The rituals keep her alive long enough to discover the secrets of this new world, and of the stranger she calls husband.
Then she learns that the danger threatening Jilimar will soon descend on Earth, and only she can stop it.
Marcelle Dubé writes mystery, science fiction, fantasy, contemporary and—occasionally—romance fiction. She grew up near Montreal and after trying out a number of different provinces (not to mention Belgium) she settled in the Yukon, where people outnumber carnivores, but not by much.
Dubé's novels include Backli's Ford and Kirwan's Son.
