Marie Waller is a seemingly normal twenty-something woman who feels her life is going nowhere. She craves a life of adventure, but is too cowardly to make it happen. She resorts to wishing on stars instead. As if things aren't bad enough, the worst thing imaginable happens: Her wish comes true. Caught somewhere between fantasy and insanity, she is appointed with the task of finding her long-lost ancestors, who are scattered and hidden among secret worlds. Even with the aid of a mysterious stranger, uniting her four diverse yet equally twisted siblings poses its own set of challenges as they deal with merging tempers and betrayal among their ranks. Marie and her newfound family eventually find common ground, only to unearth a brutal truth about their bloodline. Marie discovers a long hidden evil in their past as she uncovers the secrets of her mother's untimely death and her father's disappearance.
