Genie’s parents are getting divorced. And it’s all her fault. Her best friends, Beth, Mei, and Whit, convince her to make a wish at their small town’s antique fountain. Genie thinks it’s ridiculous, wishing for her parents to reunite. But she’s already ruined everything, so what can it hurt?
Turns out, it can hurt a lot.
The friends’ wishes draw the attention of magical beings, who capture Beth that night. In order to save her, the three remaining friends must trust a stranger who claims to know where Beth has been taken. All Genie, Mei, and Whit have to do is follow him through a portal into another world—Avalon, where legends like the Knights of the Round Table and the Lady of the Lake are real.
If they fail, Beth will be lost for good and the evil sorcerer who holds her will be free to terrorize both Avalon and Earth. Genie, Mei, Whit, and Beth must discover their own inner strength and unite together if they’re going to have any chance at saving both worlds and themselves.
After weeks of not receiving news from their knights in Avalon, the Questing Beast abruptly appears on Earth and attacks Genie, Beth, Mei, and Whit. With its appearance, magic awakens within them. During their fight, Beth’s magic fails putting them all in danger. Help from Avalon arrives just in time to remove the curse over the Questing Beast and reveal a woman from Arthur’s time. When she sets eyes on Genie, the woman claims to be Genie’s real mother.
Shaken from the experience, they soon learn the knights haven’t contacted them because they’ve gone missing. There’s an ancient evil running amok in Avalon, and the people blame the four teens--believing its Merlin who’s loose and destroying their world. To make matters worse, one of Avalon’s queens, Viviane, has disappeared while researching the connection between Avalon and the four teens from Earth.
Genie, Beth, Mei, and Whit will once again face the dangers of Avalon to clear their names, rescue the knights, and locate Viviane. Using the elements of air, water, earth, and fire, the foursome must pull together and learn to combine their magic. Can their mysterious connection to Avalon help unlock their powers? If they fail, the worlds of Avalon and Earth could destabilize and end life as they know it.
