About the story
In 'The City of Silver Light', Keira Leichman spent the night lost in a wild snowstorm that struck Cassidy Heights. But what really happened that night? Not even Keira can be sure. What she does know is that she's been having strange dreams since the accident, and now she's stuck with a broken ankle and the possibility of never playing soccer again.
Unfortunately that’s not all that’s changing. Just when did she stop thinking of Jake as ‘Miles’, and start thinking of him as Jake? What was his relationship with Cari, the beautiful ice-girl who mysteriously appeared just before the snow-storm, only to disappear again shortly after. And why are Jake and Daniel, his younger brother, keeping secrets from her?
Keira is certain it all has something to do with the old brass telescope Jake keeps in his pocket. Daniel warns her to stay away, but Keira is determined to unravel these mysteries. When she looks through the telescope, and sees the City of Silver Light hanging in the sky, she is drawn across the Bridge of Ice to Shar.
Now Keira is marooned in the City of Silver Light with Danie with no way to get home. But that is the least of their worries, for the secrets they discover in Shar are more dangerous than Kiera could ever have imagined. The Guardians are plotting something and the fate of both Shar, and the Earth, is in Keira’s hands.
