Cyra Delphin grew up hiding her “Wildside” connection from other people. Her parents feared for Cyra's safety if she revealed her seemingly otherworldly talents. However, as an adult though she tried, the call of Wildside proved too much for the scientist especially when her fiancé Larry stole two years of hard data from research she conducted. Cyra seeks Humans Under Ground (HUG) feeling these individuals will share similar talents with her.

Her quest takes her to Nevada where Cyra meets Thomas Marrowbone, a lonely inhuman wizard. As Thomas helps Cyra learn just why she feels so different from humans, they fall in love. However, he has mission to fight goblins and does not want her to come. Cyra will do anything to help her beloved win.

As with TRAVELER, the world of OUTSIDERS is filled with mythological creatures that seem so genuine that the audience will demand Melanie Jackson takes a DNA test. The story line is action –packed from the moment Cyra meets Thomas. That duo is a delightful pair who realizes that with one another they have found something rare and sacred, but duty calls first.
