The Darkest Hour
About the Book
All 15-year-old Alice and her sisters Emma, Clara and Lily wanted to know was where they came from. Who had brought them to their secluded orphanage home and why did they each wear a mysterious golden pendant? The question seemed simple enough, but when posed to their strict headmistress Ms. Craddock, the girls discover far more than they expected.
Now Alice and her sisters find themselves on a dangerous question to free the kingdom of Algernon from the grip of a demon ruler, before he conquers all the lands of Fadreama. Guided by a powerful wizard, the girls make their way across the kingdom meeting friend and foe alike, all the while realizing that destiny never brings the expected. Pursued by a witch and running out of time, Alice must learn how to harness the power of her inner light in order to stop the terror before it is too late.
