Aerisia begins in the real world and gets interesting with the appearance of a stump. No, really!
From the corner of the main character’s eye, this stump might be a bear, a wolf, a stray dog, a monk in flowing robes…
Love the departure from the norm with that last item, and the setup for magic.

“He was Simathe, he was the High-Chief, and he would serve his homeland by serving his Artan.
And if she hated him for it, then she did.
So be it.”

The mystery of other worlds is not one Hannah Winters ever thought she’d solve. However, the day she spots a brown-robed stranger with a magical staff in a neighbor’s field is the day she also discovers Aerisia, a magical land beyond Earth’s sunset.
Here in Aerisia, Hannah is believed to be the Artan, a legendary heroine prophesied to deliver Aerisia from the Dark Powers. Plenty of people, including the Simathe, a race of immortal warriors, and the Moonkind, people of the Moon, are willing to help her discover her true identity, but Hannah’s just an ordinary girl from Earth. She doesn’t have any latent magical abilities and she’s not the Artan. However, her allies aren’t seeing it that way. Neither are her enemies. In fact, Hannah’s life is in jeopardy nearly from the moment she arrives in Aerisia. And becoming the Artan may be the only way to survive…
