Pedig Dana valójában arra vágyik, hogy úgy élhessen, mint a többi fiatal lány az ő korában.

Ahol a mágia és a modern technológia békésen megfér egymással, nem úgy, mint a város lakói, akik bármire képesek a hatalomért, akár gyilkolni is. Anyja - saját bevallása szerint - éppen ettől akarta megóvnia lányát, amikor terhesen elmenekült Avalonból. De kit érdekelnek az avaloni politika halálos útvesztői?

Jenna Black - Varázsütés
Hiába menekült el anyja otthonából Dana Hathaway édesapjához a távoli Avalonba, egy hajszállal sem lettek könnyebbek, felszabadultabbak és mókásabbak a mindennapjai. Nem elég, hogy az életét egy bunkerszerű rejtekhelyen kell töltenie, félelmetes testőre még az engedélyezett randikról is sorra elijeszti az iránta érdeklődő fiúkat. Nem vitás: egy vérbeli kamasz lány ezt nem hagyhatja annyiban, itt az ideje, hogy kereket oldjon. Elvégre nem kuksolhat otthon a legjobb barátnője születésnapi bulija helyett, ahol mellesleg ott lesz a szerelme, Ethan is… Csakhogy szökésével Dana még nagyobb bajba jut: időközben ugyanis a Rémkirály és gyilkos csapata, amit birodalomszerte Vad Hajtás néven emlegetnek, megszállja Avalont. A vérszomjas, természetfeletti hatalommal rendelkező Rémkirály, a kegyetlen férfi, akitől állítólag még Tündeföld királynői is félnek, már régóta rettegésben tartja a tündevilágot. Az egyetlen dolog, ami miatt nem dúlja fel és hányja kardélre a birodalmat, ahol egymás mellett élnek a tündék és az emberek, egy törékeny egyezség a Tündekirálynővel, aminek a felfedését bűvös átokpecsét akadályozza meg. Dana ezúttal mindenki másnál szorultabb helyzetbe kerül. Nem számíthat védelemre, hiszen köztudott, mennyire gyűlöli őt – és ritka Tündejáró képességét – a Tündekirálynő. Márpedig az ellenállhatatlanul vonzó Rémkirály kiszemeli magának Danát. De vajon csak a halálát kívánja, vagy sokkal sötétebb terveket forgat a fejében?
