About the book:
Two years ago Trotter discovered that she was a goddess and saved the entire pantheon of Realm from a dark god in the process. But that didn't stop the gods from banning her from Realm and - worst of all - from her parents when she refused to honor the Accord and declare a dominion. Now even her lonely refuge in Aevum has been destroyed when the world itself is violently tilted away from the sun and plunged into permanent night.
Angry and desperate for someone to blame, she's ready to battle whatever demons she might find behind the destruction. Instead of evil, however, she discovers another world even older than Aevum and filled with people the gods created, then abandoned and left for dead.
Trotter will be forced to choose a dominion that will let her save both of the worlds she's come to love, even if it means giving up one of them permanently. Yet throughout her journey she is unaware that the terrifying darkness growing within her means that another dominion has already chosen her...
Trotter is still coming into her own and getting used to her powers when something awful happens to Aevum, the stars are in the wrong place, the tide is coming at the wrong time and then they are in permanent darkness. In going to the gods to discover how the world flipped so fast and left them in darkness with many dead and all panicking, Trotter discovers a whole world the gods created, then left to die in darkness. The leader of these people caused the worlds to flip over, switching who was in darkness and who was in light, but making a mess of both sides of the world.
Trotter has been refusing to claim a dominion over anything, which has all the gods upset with her, and has wanted to live among her friends and people in Aevum, but she feels a kinship as well with the people in Novum and feels her loyalty being torn.
Through trial and error, the people of both worlds must unite within their groups to go against a god, create a new balance and find a way to continue on. Trotter is a normal teenager in some ways, losing her temper with her parents and wanting time to be herself, plus sleeping great periods of time, but she has a lot more responsibilities on her shoulders and has to make some tricky decisions.
What happens when one is not able to choose their own destiny, but must deal with the one given to them through circumstances and fate? What if those you care for the most come to fear you? How do you reconcile yourself with a life that you find you must lead? It will be interesting to see how things fare for Trotter and this world in the next book.
