A young girl named Anna who lives in ancient Britain starts her life as a happy child with loving parents. They live in a small village that goes unnoticed by both the Romans and the Saxons, who are fighting each other for control of the land. Anna’s happiness is tragically cut short by the death of her father and shortly after that, the death of her mother. Anna is forced to move live with her cruel uncle because he is now her closest living relative. Years later, when she is a young teen, Anna stumbles upon a mysterious cave that pulls her into a new world inhabited by strange creatures who are just as surprised to see her as she is to see them. Anna learns these creatures are the people of Suan and finds that many of them are very disturbed by her presence. Even though Anna she can’t explain how she came to be there many of the Suan believe she could be the beginning of an invasion from her world. Anna is brought before King Maaz of the Suns and after she tells her story, the King decides that she is telling the truth and is no threat to his people. As with all societies, be they in our world or another, things aren’t always quite as they seem in the land of Suan. There was a plot to overthrow the King, and those behind it saw the presence Anna, and the suspicions about her, as a tool that could be used to that end.
