Maggie knows Quicksilver is more than just a violin. There is power here, as there is in Kara, and she knows she must protect them both from the evil that stalks them from the moment Kara and Quicksilver enter her shop. Maggie knows she must gather her forces for a desperate battle against evil. For it now walks the streets of modern New York in the form of Lucien Blank, and he wants what he senses behind the walls of Yesterday's Dreams, and he wants the power he senses in Kara O'keefe.
This synopsis report prepared by Charlene Austin
Family crisis brings Kara (main character) to pawn her cherished violin. This sacrifice 1) brings her to the attention of a power-hungry force that would use her abilities to its own end and devour her, and 2) introduces her to the Sidhe (elf) who will review Kara's own magical nature and become her protector and mentor. Kara must deal with the significance of this new knowledge of her own nature and what it means to her future, while at the same time staying clear of the back guys and protecting her family.
