Yasmina, Vaisha, Laila and Rhutnya are the daughters of a powerful ruler of the 3rd Millennium Eblan Empire. They are also the direct descendants of a mystical primordial Goddess, a lineage which gives them supernatural abilities including the ability to time travel. When their father becomes plagued by a recurring dream and seeks the counsel of a dark warlock, the sisters are condemned to death for practicing mystical arts. Their only chance of survival is to flee to another time and place far away from the world they know. In Book I, Rhutnya (Ra), the youngest of the sisters, lands in Seattle and meets Duffle, a street surfer and Katrina survivor who recognizes a time traveler when he sees one. Though he’s sworn to a solo life after losing everyone he loved, Duffle is lured by the magical intrigue that surrounds Ra and vows to help her find her sisters. They embark on a road trip down the Pacific Coast to meet with Dr. Danika Nzinga-Weiss, a Stanford professor and noted archeologist who Duffle thinks might be able to help. Along the way, they discover that Ra’s shape-shifting sister Yasmina is high in the Cascades with a Hollywood couple forced into exile after double-crossing billionaire and Artist of Darkness Queen Nomi Seerge. Yasmina becomes a pawn in the couple’s attempt to regain their A-list lifestyle. Rescuing Yasmina takes Ra and Duffle, with the help of Weiss, her former TA, and Duffle’s peculiar friend Erin Fey, to tunnels deep within the cliffs of Mendocino where Ra must push the boundaries of her abilities to save her sister.

I could not put this book down. It was imaginative and multi-layered. Cooper has crafted a fine first installment for her trilogy. The characters have depth and the story really held my interest. I can't wait for books two and three to find out what happens to Ra and the other sisters, but I also know about the artistic process; it takes time to create something good. I'm sure it will be worth the wait.
