Nineteen year old Harlow Whittaker has always sensed that she was different. Being able to travel to different worlds while she slept was something that she didn't share with anyone, not after the weird looks that her family gave her when they learned of her midnight excursions. After meeting her three appointed protectors however, she learns just how unique she actually is. Her birth was foretold, her birthday marking the day that the first Human Soothsayer was born. Her powers would supersede any other future seer and she would possess the abilities to save the worlds. As the first human soothsayer she must abandon her world. Unable to say goodbye to her family or even tell them where she is going, Harlow begins her voyage to Carnelian Comba where she will be united with fellow soothsayers and learn her true identity. Beyond those facts however, Harlow has no idea what is in store for her or how she is supposed to save the worlds. As the attacks on her life grow in frequency it becomes apparent that something especially evil is at work. An antagonist that has the ability to infiltrate the minds of others and who seems eerily familiar wants her dead. As Harlow tries to come to grips with the constant threats to her life, and her budding feelings for one of her protectors, visions of her family in turmoil begin to occur regularly. Even with the welcomed distraction of falling in love, Harlow cannot help but agonize over her decision to desert her family. In order to discover her fate she must embark on this precarious journey that could mean saving the worlds.
