Amber Stone, once a child prodigy, has just become curator of a special collection of Macedonian artifacts for the Seattle Museum of Natural History. Chloe, a prodigy of a different sort, holds a position at the museum focusing on tribal art. The two become fast friends, united by Amber's unsettling dreams and Chloe's unorthodox ways of dealing with them. Two strangers arrive in town, bringing with them a prophecy recorded more than three-thousand years ago, a prophecy that places Amber directly in the midst of a battle that has spanned a millennia.

Describe yourself what is your worst and vest quality?
My worst quality would be that I am really impatient. It’s hard for me, especially growing up in New York, to be patient with those that just can’t seem to think as fast as me. My best quality would have to be my sense of intelligence. It has allowed me to graduate with advanced degrees at such a young age and to be able to travel.
What is the one thing you wish other people knew about you?
I think people must really think I am naïve because I’m too smart in the book sense and not in the world sense. Just because at first I didn’t know that vampires, witches, and werewolves existed doesn’t mean that I am naïve. My eyes were not open at the time.
What is your biggest secret something no one knows about?
Hmm. I guess not a lot of people know that I was adopted. In fact, it wasn’t like I came out and just said “Woo – guess what? I’m an orphan.” My parents adopted me when I was an older child, but they treated me kindly and I loved them. But, no one knows that I am ashamed of my birthmark. It’s strange, not like a circle or anything. But, it does represent my destiny and purpose.
What are you most afraid of?
These are really good questions (laughing). I’m probably most afraid of Valentine. He’s the hunter but there is something about him that makes me shudder. I feel like I know him and am disappointed in him but I do not know how or why this is the case. Valentine just gives me the creeps.
What do you want more than anything?
I want to fulfill the prophecy. I want to bring peace to all of us.
What is your relationship status?
You could say that I am taken. I’m in love with Michal. He’s my lover, my maker and he is connected to me through these markings I have on my body. They connect me to Marcus, Chloe and Michael. They all connect through the birthmark.
How would you describe your sense of fashion?
Well, I don’t dress as gothic as Chloe. I’m a little more conservative but I’d like to think that I dress sexy! I love to show off my curves and all.
How much of a rebel are you?
Not at all except I’m learning to fight, thanks to the prophecy.
What do you considered to be your greatest achievement?
Probably the day I turned 20 and graduated with a few advanced degrees from college.
What is your idea of happiness?
Isn’t happiness subjective? Oh look there I go again. I’m called “genius girl” by Chloe for that reason (giggles). I think happiness comes when you are in complete peace with everything.
What is your current state of mind?
I am a genius girl! No, seriously, my mind is filled with memories of the past lives that were led before Illyris merged with mine. It can be confusing but I’m sane. I’m genius girl!
What is your most treasured possession?
I wear this pendent like amulet
What is your most marked characteristic?
I would have to say it’s this birthmark. It’s so unusual but as I am learning about my destiny and all, I’m learning that it’s tied to it. It is a crescent shape and I try to keep it hidden. People think it’s a tattoo but it’s not.
What is it that you, most dislike?
I really, really, really dislike cauliflower. Isn’t that the funniest thing I could dislike?
Which living person do you, most despise?
I don’t think I really despise anyone. I mean, the world is full of different people, human or supernatural. I believe in peace and unification.
What is your greatest regret?
My greatest regret is not visiting my folks more while I was in college. But I was such a bookworm that I couldn’t stop studying.
What is the quality you most like in a man?
I would probably say his honesty. A man who can’t be honest doesn’t deserve to be around me. But if you want to know physical traits, I would say his shoulders. The broader, the better!
What is the quality you most like in a woman?
I prefer women to be strong and courageous.
Who is your favorite hero in fiction?
I always loved Wonder Woman, growing up.
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Sometimes I wish I could remove my birthmark. It’s just that no one else has a birthmark in a weird shape.
What is your motto?
I like to remind people of justification and peace. There is a reason why we do things and we need to remember why we do them.
