In order not to violate world treaties, they conduct Johnny's Sidhe training out-of-body, where he is whisked away in the night to all sorts of bizarre and grotesque tests of his mettle and shows an incredible resilience that's hitherto unknown among the Sidhe who have visited this plane. In Gwynydd, fae creatures are being murdered by human wizards from yet another parallel world called Logres, attacking fae shrines and stealing magickal artifacts. The Logrens have just stolen the Rift Wand, a means by which people can cross over to any parallel world.
The Sidhe have mastered this for untold eons, but once the Logrens learn its secrets, there will be no world safe from their search for weapons to effect their Operation: Sidhe rangers fail to retrieve the Rift Wand from Logres.
Their best hope of getting this out of Logres is Emma's witch clan, posing as royalty from another plane, unknown to the Logrens, as "Atlantis". The ancients prepare and give them artifacts of their own to accomplish their ruse.
Johnny is further trained in his Sidhe heritage and learns more about himself and his mysterious, but absent father. The world of Abred in the mid 's is a violent and chaotic place. The American President has recently been assassinated and the world powers are poised on the verge of mutual, nuclear destruction. Mordred's wizards want those warheads to hold entire worlds for ransom. No civilization in any universe will be safe. Neither will he allow the world that created these wonders to continue building more.
The Earth is counting down to its own destruction. In crossing over to Logres, they find a human civilization where wizards rule, witches are registered and people have been made to believe that they are in mortal danger of being murdered by the Forest Devils as portrayed by the media. Johnny enlists a gang of street kids in Ivory City to help them retrieve the Rift Wand. Getting Johnny in his clutches, Mordred rightly assumes the boy knows more than he is saying about the missing Rift Wand, and Johnny leads him into an inter-dimensional trap that only one of them will leave alive.

Things seem to be going well for her when she starts working for Fred Mott, the local human crimelord.
If Anne had used her gift of heightened intuition, sometimes able see into the future through dreams and visions, and looked ahead, she would have been stunned by what lay in store for her. When Mara finds a portal to her dream world, she realizes her suspicions were true. Ella and her daughter, Emma, open a gateway to the ancient Sidhe and make a pact for a Sidhe husband for Emma's daughter, Lorry. The hope is that the hybrid child of this union will prove to be the most powerful witch in the modern world, and will sway world leaders to become more tolerant of the Old Ways and its practitioners.
But the Sidhe prince who crosses over has a dark side, and nothing comes out the way they planned. The Sidhe must be destroyed or he will destroy them, and the child of that fateful union is a male, and not the candidate for future matriarch they had hoped. One by one, members of the family start dying off, including Ella Mae. Emma, who is not an adept, must assume the mantle of clan matriarch and retrieve her unwanted grandson to raise as her own, as a witch of the blood. Believing the child will bring nothing but death and sorrow, the rest of the clan are none too eager to receive a male hybrid into their midst, and Emma has her work cut out for her.

What is merely a dream and what is real is a question the reader will have to find to their own satisfaction because for Emma the distinction is a minor one at best.
