Bill Mays releases a new tale set in his fantastic world of EL. This is the story of a young would-be music student that wants nothing more than to be accepted into The Emerald Spires Academy of the Arts. It is the finest artistic school on the continent with lists of those waiting to enter enrollment from across the world. Aeloo, daughter of a simple maid, has found her way in albeit as a handmaiden to the headmaster's daughter. Her life takes a surprising turn when the school falls into the path of a power-hungry nobleman of a shunned province. Politically motivated abductions lead to a whirlwind of an adventure for the young girl and a handful of her friends both old and new. Somehow the fate of an entire country drops into her hands and she has very limited time to figure out how to set things right and avoid a full-scale civil war. Luckily, Aeloo has a quick wit and penchant for getting out of bad situations. She will be forced to mature at a rapid pace as danger, mystery and romance seek her out. Legends of heroes long gone and a gift of musical talent jump to the forefront as her once simple life takes a turn towards the impossible. Will she be strong enough to handle the stress, or will disaster claim the country of Rapect?
