The Gates of Avaelon

Summary

What do you do when what you thought was your childhood imaginary friend turns out to be not so imaginary? That’s the situation facing nineteen year old Melissa Crawford when she moves back into her childhood home. But though most humans lose the ability to see the Fae once they reach adulthood, reuniting with the young lord Zakkaerion is the easy part. Travel between the portals, or gates, that separate Earth from Avaelon, the world of the Fae, is only possible for a short time once every seven years, and that time is fast approaching. The situation is further complicated when Zakk receives word of his father’s death. Not wanting to be parted so soon after finding each other again, Melissa decides to return with him even though bringing a human into their realm is forbidden. What begins as a short visit, however, soon becomes a long journey as she joins her friend in a race against time and faces dangers as well as their deepening feelings for one another in a quest that may determine the fate of both their worlds.

Prologue

The air was still that cold January night. Frost had already begun to form on the blades of the withered brown grass, and the surface of the small pond that lay near the old ranch house had already long since frozen over.

Beside the trunk of a tall bare-limbed oak tree, the air shimmered slightly. It was no more than a brief glitter of shining light really; unless one had been looking intently at that exact spot, it would have been easily missed, and on this occasion there was no one there to see it occur.

It would also have taken someone with very acute vision to notice, in the faint glow of the moonlight, the two small places where the grass was being pressed down; as if someone were standing there beside the tree. And unless the person watching was either very lucky or very young, they certainly wouldn’t have seen the slender figure standing there, staring down at the house with a distant, wistful expression.

But on this particular night there was no one to see the figure as it moved across the field towards the old, sturdy building crafted from weathered brown boards, and no one to see the flash of blue light that surrounded it before it disappeared from view and entered the house.
