The sequel to Torii:
Everything in Mayuri’s life has changed. She used to be a misfit teen, struggling in school. Now she’s the heir to the throne of an ancient Elf clan in charge of protecting earth, and the mysterious Torii. Each door, or gate, has its own story, but no one quite knows exactly how they work. Mayuri has given her heart to the equally mysterious Jason, who’s been studying Torii for over 300 years. Now she’s pregnant, but Jason isn’t the only possible father, and she doesn’t know who to choose. Far away, the Elf Prince, Raevon, is power hungry, and is feeling more threatened by the return of the queen, and the rebirth of Ashwin. With the help of the beautiful vampiress, Devani, he must decide what to do next to keep his reign over the entire Universe. What will he decide?
