Elle Burton is an ordinary kid...or so she thinks. On her tenth birthday, she encounters Eunie Mae, a tiny, fairylike
being who comes from a world called Fiori. Other than some children under the age of eight, the only human beings who
can see Fiorins are guides—people who have been chosen to help protect the children of Earth.
Being a guide seems like the opportunity of a lifetime. Elle has always loved helping others, and now she'll have
magical assistance. But not everybody wants her to succeed. There are evil forces who do everything in their power to
keep the guides from offering support to those in need. Can Elle be brave enough to oppose them?
