In ancient Hawaii, young princess Leilani has an auspicious encounter with a sea turtle, her family guardian spirit animal, and soon after she unexpectedly falls in love with Kanoa, a commoner, someone who she is forbidden from. The young lovers believe they have the blessings of the gods so they try to find a way to be together anyway. But dark forces have other plans for Leilani. Leilani and Kanoa are separated and their lives each end tragically. Ever after, the naupaka flower, the symbol of their love, mourns Leilani and Kanoa by growing with only half its petals.
Centuries later, Liz finds herself navigating a new life in Hawaii, the land of her ancient ancestors. Between making new friends and new romantic pursuits, she learns of the naupaka flower and its tragic love story. She has a strange encounter with a sea turtle and learns that the sea turtle is her ancestors’ guardian spirit animal. And then she finds herself intensely drawn to a local man she’s never met before. Or has she? When she starts having vivid dreams about what seems to be a prior life, she wonders. But dark forces gather against Liz now, much as they gathered against Leilani so long ago.
Will Liz ever find the love she’s always wanted, or will she — like Leilani before her — be caught up in a tragedy as old as the naupaka story itself?

When a star dies, a new one must be born.
The Sun God chooses the village of Endwever to provide a mortal womb. The birthing of a star is always fatal for the mother, and Ceris Wenden, who considers herself an outsider, sacrifices herself to secure her family’s honor and take control of her legacy.

Inexplicably displaced in time, Ceris is determined to seek out her descendants.
Being a woman traveling alone brings its own challenges, until Ceris encounters a mysterious—and desperate—godling.

Together, pursued across the Earth and trespassing the heavens, Ceris and Ristriel are on a path to illuminate the mysteries that bind them and discover the secrets of the celestial world.
