Child of the Portal is the third book in the Portal Series.
Susan’s mother commits suicide which releases her magic as she gives up her life. The realm she controlled is threatened, and destruction seems inevitable. Her closest advisor, the Naiad, has also vanished and her healing influence is sorely missed.
Susan’s own magic is developing as she approaches her teenage years. She struggles with her heritage as she begins to grow into the strong, young woman her mother would have been proud of. Even Lily is pleased with the teenager, even though she refuses to teach Susan how to safely use her family magic.
With the Naiad gone, nobody in control, and no-one prepared to fill either role, the magical realm is in flux. Chaos threatens when Lily is lost and assumed to have perished after her fall. It seems that all will collapse unless Susan can find Lily and bring her back to restore the magical balance. But is Lily still alive? Can Susan find the salvation that is needed for the conflict to end, and for peace to be restored?
If Lily can be found, only Susan has the gift to find her. If Susan succeeds, only the Naiad can save them. Lily must choose where and who she wants to be to everyone who demands that she be someone else. Susan must decide who she wants to grow into, and who she wishes to claim as her family.
Is Susan the child of the portal between worlds? or could it be another?
