On her return from Yetzirah, the magical world she and her twin sister Elena first visited as children, Elise discovers that a butterfly has come back with her. But this is no ordinary butterfly. Crafted of silver wire and sapphires by one of the pocket wizards it should not have been able to cross the barrier, and it should not have been able to fly without magic, yet it has done both of these things.
This event, and others which follow, lead Elise and her friends to believe that the barrier between our world and Yetzirah is weakening. If the barrier falls it would mean the end of both worlds. To reach the only one who can help Elise needs her sister’s help, but will Elena help save a world in which she no longer believes?
