In the process, they have a dark awakening when their typically predictable world collides with the complexities of the magical world. The twins face unimaginable dangers, thrusting them into an unexpected choice: to live as they always have or to learn the truth about their past and enter a world that is equally thrilling and terrifying.
More importantly, however, is whether they even have a choice, or will fate not only force this new magical reality upon them, but require them to sacrifice everyone they love in doing so?

Ancient human remains—all slaughtered in a long-ago massacre—cover the cavern floor, along with a number of brilliantly colored, granite crystals. The rare crystals are native to only one place on earth: a frozen mountain range in central Antarctica.
Could Native Americans have traveled to the frozen continent of Antarctica 800 years prior to the first known human exploration? If so how? And why?
There’s only one person who can get Leah to those mountains in Antarctica: her estranged husband and climbing guide Jack Hobson.
At their destination they make a stunning discovery that will change history and science forever. But Leah’s team is far from the only interested party.
As her secret makes its way to the highest levels of government, a race to seize the Russian-claimed Antarctic territory brings the world to the brink of nuclear conflict.
Before he’s kicked out, he’ll need to stop his host from hurting anyone else. It’s one of the rules if he wants more rides. More rides means more movies and fishing trips, and more of those little apple pies they sell at gas stations and convenience stores, because they’re just that good.
For a dead guy, it’s a pretty good gig…until someone changes the rules.
What if you discover that your brand new, shiny robot is self-aware, as Lucy Walker does with ‘Robbie?’
It is 2162. Brian Webster, the self-absorbed, unstable leader of Harrowgate & Webster Robotics, develops the most adaptive and responsive robot of all time, thanks to a revolutionary quantum computer processing ‘brain’ and groundbreaking Gen5 software. However, he installs the ‘Governor,’ overseeing software that monitors the robots behaviour adding a second layer of safety routines. With the ability to force compliance, the Governor essentially denies the robots their freedom.
Brian Webster ruthlessly exploits robots, colleagues, and even his own son, in his obsession to crush his powerful rival, Enorpa Robotics.
Lucy, and other concerned owners, demand that their robots be free of the Governor, defiantly pursuing a collision course with Webster’s ambitions of empire, unwittingly risking collapse of the entire industry with incalculable outcomes.
Robbie’s confused start-up precipitates an emotional journey of self-discovery, survival and enlightenment in an increasingly unpredictable and dangerous world. His only desire is to serve Lucy.
Ultimately, his is a surprisingly ‘human’ story, in which his emotional struggle to understand ‘freedom’ terminates at an unexpected and shocking conclusion.
