About the book: 
On one side is a naive, sheltered 12-year-old girl, on the other, a revenge-seeking sorcerer. One knows nothing of the world or the hidden power she carries. The other has thousands of years of magic and a ruthlessness that knows no bounds. Oelsa’s childhood shatters when her father is kidnapped. If he is to be rescued, she must do it. But how? With the help of a shape-shifting raven, a brave woodsman, an old wizardess and her sassy cat, Oelsa sets out on a quest that will test her courage to its limits.
Meanwhile, Anvyartach, the Shadow Lord, must regain his lost powers before he can wrest Oelsa’s secret weapon from her. While his henchmen hunt for the girl with the Key, he uses dark magic to create a powerful weapon, FireIce, which feeds on raw emotion and incinerates its victims. When the FireIce takes on a life of its own, only the Key’s primeval magic will stop it.
As Oelsa and the Shadow Lord gain strength and support, the balance of control of Idelisia teeters between the awakening of an invincible, ancient power and the regeneration of a malevolent tyrant. The winner takes all and the lives of all will be affected forever.
