On Kate's fifteenth birthday, she decides to take a weekend trip to Chiccago with her best friend, Gus, but a cataclysmic flood sweeps through the city streets and sends her tumbling into a world completely different from her own. In this land, lightning bolts act as magical staircases...mythical creatures come to life...and the exciting journey takes her from one mysterious realm to another. It is here that Kate, a girl with special needs and challenges, will finally be forced to grow up and confront some hard truths about herself.

Kate runs into someone unexpected, and the teens are about to have the adventure of a lifetime! They will be whisked to the end-times, a distant land full of dangers and disasters where the evil queen Evrisx sets her sights on the young girl. Evrisx, with her unnatural powers and taste for human flesh, could not only harm Kate - she could doom the entire world with her actions!

Will the teens be able to escape the disasters and return home? Enter the land of myths and wonders with Kate to find out.

Review quote

"The setting is an important device in this novel, and TAN deftly weaves together technology and mythology to create a world that is both original and intriguing. Kate may not know or understand what is happening around her, but the world she is thrust into is beautifully described and loaded with allegorical meaning." - Booklife

"J.P.H. Tan's debut YA fantasy is a whimsical interpretation of the Christian apocalypse scenario that features clever and subtle incorporation of the more striking omens, such as the stars falling and the mark of the beast." - Readers' Favorite
