Some people say that fire and water don’t mix, but others say that opposites attract.

Ash and Cascadia seem like best friends and neighbors, but may or may not be actually dating. Most young people at their stage in life only have to deal with college classes and finding a job, and not a unique gift that will ultimately tangle them up in a web of intrigue, mystery, and action. This new adventure will help them develop new friendships and strengthen old ones, bringing them closer to God and ultimately to each other. Can they protect their identity, defend their faith, survive danger, and make it to Mass on Sunday?
