Artist Jessica Stone has a death sentence, an inoperable brain tumor. As her health declines, Jess is compelled to paint the captivating image of a mythical realm protected by a crystal called the Rose Stone. A mysterious crimson glow infuses the canvas, and Jess wakes in the Commonwealth of the Rose. She meets Griffin, a warrior engaged in a struggle with the malevolent darkling, who seeks to control the power of the Rose Stone. With Griffin’s help, Jess evades the darkling’s assassins. Then the hallucination vanishes, and she discovers her connection to the Rose Stone may run deeper than mere illusion.
Torn between two worlds, Jess battles the darkling in one and a tumor in the other while struggling to determine her true reality. Is the Rose Stone a dream, a
hallucination, or a summons to something greater?
