They Called Her Alivia

A princess born to stop the return of Abaddon must learn her place in the magical realm of Brightenbeam. Through the assistance of twelve warrior fairies from an ancient race, she must survive the constant threats of black magic that attempt to claim or kill her. Tales told over the ages say that he is the angel that rules the bottomless pit, the destroyer. Even with the help of her school friends and familiars, will they be enough to stop Lord Guthrie from acquiring the twelve amulets and releasing Abaddon from his prison beneath the world tree? Her challenge is not only finding all the amulets but in perfecting her abilities with earth and white magic. If she fails and he is released again, he will destroy both the magical creatures and the mortals.
