Small town girl, Molly Bennett, moves to Los Angeles where she becomes an 
outsider while attending Beverly Hills High School. It seems life cannot be any more dreadful. Then one day after school, something magical happens. 

On a secluded hike in the Hollywood Hills, Molly chases her disobedient mutt and only friend into a hidden cavern. She stumbles upon a strange glimmering gateway that transports her to Arkana, a planet that is the cradle of an advanced human race. There, teenagers navigate amazing flying vehicles, compete in perilous games for glory, and possess supernatural powers. While Molly tries to wrap her mind around this unbelievable discovery, she meets the alluring and mysterious Victor Sorren. He is a Sentinel Apprentice, whose hatred toward people from Earth is beyond understanding. 

Yet every time Victor unpredictably saves Molly’s life, his heart draws closer to hers, no matter how much he tries to fight against it. It further complicates things that their growing friendship is strictly forbidden. Earth people are prohibited in Arkana, yet Molly continues to cross through the portal to Arkana to see Victor. Torn between their double lives, they go down a dangerous path, from where there is no return and multiple endings. 

Would you fight to be with the one you truly love? What cost would you be willing to sacrifice for that

We do anything for the ones we love...

Since Molly Elizabeth Bennett has been living in exile bereft of all memory of her past, she only knows the world to be an unfair and brutal place. Inside Terraka City, where control, violence and humiliation keep people in abject fear, her faith in humanity has faltered. But just like the forest after a fire, she also rises from the ashes.

Meanwhile, Victor Sorren embarks on a hazardous rescue mission with Little Pete and Annabella to find his beloved Molly, unaware that she doesn’t remember him. For a mixed-blood Motley Terraka City, where only purebred species have the right to live, is a dangerous place to be. Yet the three friends follow Molly’s footsteps even though they jeopardize their own lives with each step.

Four friends. Scattered in four different places. All of their lives in peril. The Imperial Guards hunting them. The Emperor wanting them dead. They just want to find each other and leave this city of shame. But with the stakes so high, wishful thinking may not be enough to save them.

Will they all be strong enough to survive this deadly mission into Terraka territory?
