Nora Havard is counting down the days of her senior year till she can leave her small hometown of Ferndale, California. For three years she's been plagued with dark feelings of unexplainable mental dread that only ease when she is away from home, but now, 186 school days stand between her and a normal life away at college.  

 

The last day of summer vacation, Nora stumbles upon a dead body, starting a strange chain of events that will forever change her, mentally and physically. Secrets unravel, and she learns her family's in hiding from a world of magic, gods, mythical creatures and ancient power struggles that began when the world was young. Nora's quest for a normal life is no longer an option, as she must learn who she is, what she's capable of, and if she's strong enough to stop a threat from the other side of the Gate or be forced to choose which of her loved ones will live or die.
