The Hidden Realms
Lucy is a girl living the high life in the 21st century Melbourne. She has a boyfriend and is used to the conveniences of the modern-day lifestyle. After exploding at her co-worker during a meeting, she goes to the bathroom only to watch her ears form delicate points.
She stopped believing in magic and fairies a long time ago but now? It may be the only logical explanation.
that night she finds a mysterious note asking for Lucy to meet by the snow-covered tree in the middle of a forest. At three o’clock in the morning. Lucy goes, only to meet one of the many queens of the realms, Rebelle. Rebelle reveals that Lucy’s mother was an elf and lived in the realms for several years. Lucy inherited her mother’s elf blood and now, the same people who killed Lucy’s mother are after her. The only way to guarantee Lucy survives is for her to follow Rebelle back to the realms and live out the remainder of her life there.
She agrees and for the first year in the realms, her life is carefree and simple. In another part of the realms, however, chaos and war brews. And a rebellion stirs.
Soon Lucy finds herself tangled up in a scheme set up by the corrupt government - The Council. The Council calls its scheme ‘The Highborn Scheme.’ It involves taking groups of individuals with influence on the thrones from their homelands and placing them in a realm not even the royals know exists. The new realm is desolate and isolated, and those that live in it are unaware of what is going on outside.
They are given three years to hand over their political power and if they refuse, they will be murdered.
Lucy is thrown in with a group of royals, their guards and several others. All of which refuse to hand over their influence.
After the mysterious disappearance of several of the highborns, it becomes clear to all that this is no child’s play. And in a world where Werecats and vampires command the night and nature is controlled by magical realmers nothing is taken lightly.
Lucy soon becomes aware that her new friends are hiding secrets, some of which could get them killed.
Soon the organiser of the scheme - Felicia Aubern, begins to get suspicious of both Lucy and her new companions. So, in desperation they make a vague attempt to escape, only to find themselves on the run and wanted criminals with hefty price tags on their heads. Not only that but it quickly becomes clear that the moment they step out of the realm old enemies are after them. And the people that murdered Lucy’s mother are closing in on her.

Hey @nick I’ve come back through and redone my summary completely. I’m hoping this is better, I honestly can not do formal/informative writing to save myself nevertheless, I hope I have made a better impression. Thank you!
