The holiday on the Greek Island of Mykonos was starting to feel like something Arian and Penny should have done a long time ago. But when Arian saw a delightful little girl swept out to sea by a rogue wave, she didn’t hesitate to rush to her aid. She fought the evil she felt with a long forgotten verse - saving Ermioni brought back memories that made her shudder. The gratitude of her mother, Helen was heartfelt; but it was the vision of Ajax which made her heart rate accelerate.

We travel from sun-drenched Mykonos (how I want to travel there for real!) to Melbourne, Australia as Jax (Ajax from the Battle of Troy) attempts to keep Arian Kendrick, the Faerie Queen, but she doesn't know it, from the clu
