The Envisage

By M.M. Warren

Without early memories or a family to tell her who she is, Andelyn instinctively knows that her life is in constant flux because she is hiding from someone dangerous and impossible to identify. When strangers kidnap her, Andelyn’s only way to escape is on an abandoned boat that rushes her through a secret underground river passage leading to Meridia, a mysterious land hidden inside the earth.

Buried deep within the walls of the palace there, Andelyn discovers a legend about the Envisage: a person with the uncanny power to save or destroy Meridia with their thoughts. But why doesn’t anyone seem to know who the Envisage is, and why are they so afraid to find out?

With the unresolved mystery of who she was running from in the first place, Andelyn begins to wonder if all of this could have something to do with her. Is she hiding from this Envisage that people seem so afraid to speak of? And why?

This much is clear: sometimes you risk more than your own fate when you find out who you are, especially if what you should have feared most is what you are capable of—and especially if fear changes everything.

The alternate world of Meridia is carefully concealed, deep underground. When Andelyn runs from strange kidnappers, she discovers a hidden river cave that leads her to this secret world of endless possibilities and powers beyond her understanding.
