Darcy has officially gone mad.
At least that’s what her parents think.
When Darcy finally sums up the courage to tell them about the other world named Alitheia, they think she has gone mad. Darcy has even gone as far as to tell them that she is married in Alitheia and that she is the queen.
Her parents are sending her to the psychiatrist but Darcy needs to get to Alitheia so that she can stop the evil Tselloch from rising and creating an all-powerful kingdom of his own.
Upon arrival at Alitheia, Darcy gets attacked by Tselloch’s men and is brought to safety by some trolls.
Darcy thanks them and is ready to get on her way when one of them stops her and tells her that Tselloch has sent things to kill her and that she will die if she does not walk carefully.
Darcy is very eager to be reunited with her husband Tellius and her other friends, but along the way, her journey turns into a murder wish as the many different creatures sent by Tselloch try to kill her.
Will Darcy be reunited with Tellius and her friends and be able to stop Tselloch? Will her parents believe her?

Darcy burned with the pain of knowing she’d failed. What happened when a prophecy didn’t come true? It must not have been much of a prophecy in the first place. And if they couldn’t trust in that, then they couldn’t trust in anything at all.
Five years ago, Darcy first received the prophecy of the Six, which stated she and her friends would save the land of Alitheia from a shadowy foe. For five years, she hasn’t known what the end will look like, but she certainly didn’t expect this.
Thrust back into Alitheia through unexpected means, Darcy winds up alone, scared, and without her recent memory. As she struggles to regain her lost memories and reunite with the ones she loves, she pieces together the prophecies and the oracles to find they all converge into one story, a story that tells her just how much she’ll have to give to save both worlds, and everyone she loves.
Pursued through Alitheia by forces desperate to kill them, Darcy and her friends take a journey fraught with danger that will lead them, inevitably, to the final confrontation with the Shadow. Armed with newfound knowledge of how the prophecy of the Six will play out, Darcy and the others must have faith in the face of mounting odds and adversity.
Ultimately, the greatest courage of all belongs not to those who give something of themselves, but to those who let go of what they could never control.
Filled with stunning losses, heart-wrenching reunions, unexpected twists, and the power of love and sacrifice, the conclusion to The Gateway Chronicles will leave you breathless and begging for more from author K.

Praise for The Bone Whistle
“I really enjoyed this series from the opening pages of THE SIX, where we meet 13 year old, solipsistic, angst-ridden Darcy, through to the final pages of THE BONE WHISTLE where we leave her behind, matured and likely as grown as she will ever be.” – Suzy Goodreads Review
