A benevolent baker ... a diabolical queen ... an ancient prophecy ... and a secret strength that can only be found in two very special people.
Hannah Wilkins is bitter. In addition to being teased at school about her weight, she has now been struck blind in a terrible accident, causing her to lose all sense of normalcy and her tight-knit family. She struggles through everyday, each seeming to grow worse than the last, until one fateful morning when her bus hits a deer and the resulting jolt sends her flying into another universe.
Brandon Pringle struggles everyday to fit in and function like the rest of the children at his school. Afflicted by a debilitating limp, he doesn't seem to be of use to anyone. When he is thrown from the school bus and lands on an unfamiliar riverbank, everything he knows about himself is completely overturned.
Tossed together in the unfamiliar and turbulent land of Crimilia, Hannah and Brandon must fight there way through the unfamiliar landscapes of jealousy, greed, temptation and hate in order to help restore peace to a land run by a tyrant. With the help of a few friends, and through the goodness of a kindly baker named Jamal, they might just succeed in freeing the citizens of Crimilia from the ruthless Queen Salak. Join author Meredith Burton for an unforgettable tale of faith, friendship and perseverance in the land of Crimilia.
From The Author:
“Fantasy novels are a wonderful way to stimulate imagination. Through fantasy stories, we become acquainted with characters who are embroiled in life and death struggles with evil forces. We are allowed to escape, even for a few moments, from daily life. We are allowed to imagine how we ourselves would react in certain situations.”

About The Author
Meredith Leigh Burton was born on July 4, 1983. As a result of a premature birth, she was placed under oxygen to develop her lungs. The three month's exposure to the oxygen led to the development of retinopathy of prematurity. Meredith attended the Tennessee School for the Blind in Nashville, where she enjoyed choir, theater classes, and participating on the forensics team. After high school, Meredith attended Middle Tennessee State University where she received her Bachelors' of Arts Degree in English and theater. She is a certified English teacher for grades 7-12.Meredith loves assisting with church activities, spending time with family and friends, and reading any book she can get her hands on. She is a chocoholic and Mexican food fanatic. She has always devoured allegorical books, and was first introduced to the fantasy genre by a teacher who whetted her appetite by taking her to the Narnia books in the elementary school library. "The kids in these stories go to another world," the teacher whispered enticingly. That was just the hook Meredith needed. Her favorite fiction book is To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, and her favorite nonfiction book is The Holy Bible. Meredith lives in Lynchburg, Tennessee with her parents and an adorable tabby cat named Simba. She has two precious nieces, Aliya Davine and Tristyn Layla.
