The tides have turned and tensions are on the rise. Kobi has come of age and his abilities are even more powerful than anyone had feared.

Raili is stronger, too, and something is seriously wrong. When Kobi and the Zirians enter Cella in the dead of night to stage a secret rescue of Raili, everything goes as planned until Kobi fines a very different person than he expected.

Kobi must find a way to save, t only Raili's physical being, but his mind as well, before it is too late for them both.
At a very young age J. S. Council found reading difficult. In school, children laughed at her when she read aloud because her mouth would utter words her eyes did not see. She lost confidence and became uninterested in books all together. But her love of creating life on blank pages never ceased. Excitement soured through her fidgety little body every time her teacher mentioned the words writing assignment. Of course, at the tender age of nine J. S. Council had no clue she could make a living doing what she loved and certainly didn't think she could do it with all her troubles with reading in general. Accompanying her mother, an avid reader, to the library regularly over the next few years, her disdain for reading slowly began to subside-even if her loathing for reading aloud still lingered-and she started to tread the waters of literary imagination. But it wasn't until J. S. Council's third year of junior high school that she truly dove into the ocean of pages filled with adventure, suspense, and mystery. Page turning novels like the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling, The Claidi Journals series by Tanith Lee, and A Wrinkle in Time series by Madeleine L'Engle were her inspiration, not only to submerge herself into these different worlds, but also to broaden her own mind as she gave birth to new fictional life. During J. S. Council's sophomore year of college at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, she discovered the bachelors program for aspiring Creative Writing Majors and jumped at the opportunity. After college J. S. Council moved to Japan and wrote most of her debut novel, Airion: Return to Zire and all of her second novel Airion: Light and Dawn-the first two books of her four book series. Japan was a peaceful place to just sit and write, but life in Japan was also filled with adventure. However much she loved it there, she had to return home to do what she loved most. Write.
