Sophie Foster is a telepath who is living in a normal world but she doesn’t always feel like she fits in. Soon it’s clear when a boy called Fritz tells her why. It turns out she’s an elf but she’s not convinced. She didn’t have pointy ears or look anything like an elf. But she soon has seen enough in the elven world to know it’s true.
As if things can’t get any crazier Sophie finds out that her human parents aren’t her real parents! She is the first elf to be raised in the Forbidden Cities (the human world) in decades. She’s forced to leave the world and everything she knows and come to live in the elven world with Gary and Edaline, two elves who agree to adopt her.
Elves aren’t the only things who live in her world either. Goblins, Trolls, Dwarves and other creatures lived there too. As if things couldn’t be more stressful Sophie Foster has to take a test to see if she can get into Foxfire, a school for advanced and skilled prodigies. ..
Sophie Foster discovers that everybody (or most people) have a talent like for instance, she was a telepath and Edaline is an Empath (to be able to feel what somebody's emotions are. Sophie passes the test to get into Foxfire but she feels lonely until she meets Dex and Keefe. She also discovers that she was given her powers by a mysterious group of people called “The Black Swan.”
After half a year at Foxfire Sophie passes her midterms. Hardly. Near the end of the school year she and Dex are kidnapped! Their kidnappers throw the tracking device that Sophie had with her into the ocean. Without it there’s no chance of being found and rescued. After they escape weeks later they end up in Paris where they find their way back from there. On the way they discover Dexes ability was the ability to manipulate machines or also called being a Technopath.
