By Krysten Lindsay Hager

Narrated by Nicole Blessing

Cecily has always had a huge crush on singer Andrew Holiday, and she wants to be an actress, so she tags along when her friends audition for his new video. However, the director isn’t looking for an actress, but rather the girl next door – and so is Andrew.

Cecily gets a part in the video and all of Andrew’s attention on the set. Her friend begins to see red, and Cecily’s boyfriend is seeing green – as in major jealousy. A misunderstanding leaves Cecily and her boyfriend on the outs, and Andrew hopes to pick up the pieces, as he’s looking for someone more stable in his life than the models he’s dated.

Soon, Cecily begins to realize Andrew understands her more than her small-town boyfriend – but can her perfect love match really be her favorite rock star?

Everything else is uncertain and rumors abound.

Victoria might be the Chosen One, whatever that means. Her father might be able to help them, but only if they can find him. Coldhaven’s villagers might be able to offer them food and shelter. Some fool might be running around unlocking Darkland portals to raise an undead army.

The further Victoria and her companions get on their journey, the more dangers and betrayals they face. They must awaken Vic’s true powers or forfeit the world.
