In a world divided by fear, hate, and prejudice, Racine embarks on a journey to discover who she really is. After a life time of alienation and rejection because of the colour of her skin and her Black heritage, she discovers the ultimate truth of good is wrapped up in the magic of the Story. Stories have the power to change the world, but first, the stories need unlocking.
In this thought-provoking, profoundly moving call-to-arms fantasy story, Alison Clarke tells the story of Racine's self-discovery and coming of age through her exploration of the 'Story' throughout time and ages. As Racine travels from the Library of Congress through time and space to lands both magical and real, she unlocks the mysteries of her own heritage and comes to understand that there are more things that join us than divide us.

Authored by Award Winning Author Alison Clarke 'Writer of The Year 2017' (Diversity Magazine. Canada.)
A story full of magic, positivity, and a call to arms for women of all ages and from all backgrounds, to be the change we want to see in the world.
When Oppie and Aurie are faced with a terrible battle between good and evil, they discover that friendship and sisterhood are the most precious things in the world.
In a realm where magic and legend still exist, it's easy to think that when you're just an ordinary girl, you'll never get the chance to be written into the history books. But when Oppie, and her dragon friend Aurie, find themselves on a mission to defeat the evil, oppressive forces of darkness, in the form of the dragon, Royzendeus, they discover that history is never made alone. As they travel, their army of light grows, and Aurie discovers that as a girl, she is blessed with an entire sisterhood she never realised existed.
I woke up, gasping for air. I saw destruction; I saw terrified faces, and so much Fire. Everything was alight, but yet it was surrounded by such darkness. Voices, with sonorous tones swimming in sorrow and regret floated in the air. The time has now come. The time has now come. I was drowning in my own sweat. These nightmares were not unusual; they had become an almost nightly occurrence. What was I to do? What was my destiny? I felt the flow of the Ancestors. Soon, it would be time. IT WOULD BE TIME.
