Seventeen-year-old Harriet (Harry) Lawson finds her life is about to change dramatically when her mother inherits Domus Inter - a grand house in Wales - from a mysterious man called Jack Lloyd. But after her family moves to Domus Inter, Harry soon realises the changes will be far more drastic than she had thought when Jack Lloyd's solicitor and a disturbing young man who calls himself Mord take a special interest in her. The two men tell her an unbelievable tale - of murder, and another world, and a magic pendant called the True Heart.
Harry has never felt like she belongs in this world, and she is about to find out why. Not knowing what to believe or who to trust, Harry’s desire to discover her true identity will embroil her in a conflict as old as memory. The legends of this world are the prophecies of another...but have they been interpreted wrongly?
