In the world of Temis, where the Familiars have separated themselves from the other humans, eighteen year old Aruna finds herself exiled from home for not conforming to society, something that she did not even have control over. She is thrust into a dangerous wilderness where she is lost and alone. But she meets George, a mystical fox that grows a second tail after an encounter with a vicious animal.
As Aruna searches for a new home, accompanied by her fox, her undeniable destiny lies before them and pulls them into the ancient war of the Celestials, the demi-gods that once ruled the wild.
Even while they are pitted against these higher beings, and a family that Aruna can no longer trust, they continue the search for a place that they can call home, and people that they can call family.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Foxes have followed me around all my life. I can’t explain it, but there did come a point where I couldn’t deny it anymore. So when one particularly scruffy fox showed up on a weekly basis in my yard, I had to name him, and he became George. George visited me so often that I couldn’t resist writing a story of the adventures that we would have together. This small start then turned into a full length fantasy novel of much more epic proportions than I could have imagined. Thank you, George!
