Danny North Star and Alice Sinclair are two women living in two alternate realities but who share the same fight to win the freedom to live their own lives and choose their own fates.
As Alice battles with herself over whether she's as crazy as everyone says she is or if it's the world she lives in that's insane, she loses herself in Danny's story, told to her through an enchanted journal only she can read.
It's a cautionary tale of just how far those in power will go to keep their place on top - and the steep cost to be paid by those the powerful exploit who strive to change their fate.
Reading Danny's accounts of enslavement and torture at the hands of one magical society, Alice realizes she shouldn't be asking herself if she was crazy or sane...
...but whether or not madness was better than the alternative.
