A car was coming towards her. Surprisingly she didn’t see it and I couldn’t get to her in time. I saw it slam into her. I saw her fly into the air and land on her arm. I saw it yet I couldn’t stop it. I didn’t see the driver; it didn’t really matter at that moment in time. All I cared about was my mother. But something felt odd, like déjà vu.
Doli and Nymphandora are both running away from their past. They both find themselves in Chicago, and as they get to know each other, they realise they haven’t left their past behind; it has simply followed them. So what are they going to do? Are they going to run again or stay and fight?
Éabhla feels trapped. All that she wants is freedom, but they, her brother and her adopted mother, won’t let her have it. That is, until one day, she escapes! She’s free! She can have the adventure she dreamed of!
Oh, so she thought.
It turns out that in the real world and in her world, nothing is as it seems, no one is as they seem, not even her.
