Claire Martinson and her sister Sophie have decided to stay in Arden, the magical land they discovered. The sisters are the last descendants of the royal family, and only a true heir of Arden --- with magic in her blood --- can awaken the unicorns. The sisters journey to Stonehaven, a famed Gemmer school high, so Claire can train in the magic of stone. Then, Sophie uncovers dangerous secrets about the people they thought they could trust. With Arden on the brink of crumbling, can Claire prove she is the prophesied heir and unlock the magic of the unicorns before it's too late?

But things are back to normal as they move into Windermere Manor...until the sisters climb a strange ladder in a fireplace and enter the magical land of Arden. There, they find a world in turmoil. The four guilds of magic no longer trust each other, the beloved unicorns have disappeared, and terrible wraiths roam freely. Scared, the girls return home.
