|Plot Summary of The Augur's Voice|
During a suicide attempt, Sarah Tims is snatched from this world and “crossed over” to Equidistant, where she must defeat the Werd, a powerful entity that threatens the cohesion of the universe. With her psyche vacillating from near-hysteria to frigidity, she can barely manage to focus let alone tame emotions that in Equidistant turn into creatures of destructions. Sarah must find the Circlet, crafted by the Augur. His embedded voice can destroy the Werd or return it devoid of its powers to earth. Due to an unknown link, Sarah is the only one who can activate the voice. With the help of Monger and Trapper, proficient creatures, created from her rage and despair, and two Ephermeral (elves) siblings, Fhlanaet and his sister Leas, Sarah sets out on her quest.
