Since their father left when the girls were only three, their mother had been everything to them, but now aunt Lucille wants to take them to Chicago to live with her and her husband. Determined to stay in Vermont, the triplets set out for the sanctuary of their childhood, to devise a plan that will keep them “home”. This sanctuary is a cave in the foothills of the Green Mountains that the girls always called the Grotto. Soon after arriving, they realize the Grotto has changed. When Raena’s beagle, Ichabod wanders off, the sisters discover that a previously blind tunnel has become a passageway to a strange land. Before her sisters can stop her, Raena spies Ichabod and plunges headlong into the new land to retrieve her beloved dog. Hesitantly, Raven and Rachel decide they must go after her.In this new land they are befriended by Leesan din Sharone and his grandson, Cere. Leesan tells them the land’s history and that it is called Vailmarsch. Upon hearing the name, the sisters automatically think “the land of shadows”. This translation comes from a secret language that as children they had used to communicate amongst themselves. When Leesan further explains that Vailmarsch means “Shadowed Land” in the ancient ones’ language, the sisters are shocked. How could this be? They had never heard the language spoken by anyone but themselves. But this is only the beginning of many strange discoveries for the triplets. Telepathic between themselves since birth, the girls soon find they have other abilities- magical abilities which mark them as the Oona Legere…the Ones of Legend.Thus begins the exciting yet dangerous journey where the triplets encounter wizards, seers and all types of strange creatures. Along the way, they enlist the aid of the quitrax who had served the Oona Legere in another lifetime, do battle with a horde of monstrous beings and discover things that had been hidden in their own past.
