What if, once upon a time, I had taken that leap of faith?
Our choices not only affect us, but send tremors of change that can alter the destiny of others. Especially if you happen to construct a time-travel portal…
My name is Arizona Darley and my mom did just that.
When Olivia decided to go back in time to find the one man she was destined to, she catapulted Arizona’s life into rollercoaster of confusion. Fusion is the highly anticipated conclusion to the Portal Chronicles, which began with the YA bestseller, Portal.

Character interviewed by Imogen Rose:
It’s been a few months since I interviewed the charming, but intimidating Jagger Deveraux. I was hoping to interview Arizona, Kellan, or David, but they are next to impossible to pin down. Not that it was particularly easy to arrange a time with Jagger, but I have his number and my whining capacity is legendary, known to bring the most unyielding paranormal to his knees, though it has absolutely no effect on girls, including my own daughter. Anyhow, it’s now three in the afternoon, so he’s late. Hmm. Not happy. Oh, wait! I feel a cool breeze!
As the door to my office opens, the breeze sends shivers through me, and I know I am blushing just a little. I hope he doesn’t assume I’ve got the hots for him. I don’t. Really. :/
Jagger: “Hey! Sorry, I’m late! Got held up by Rupert. And I have to go back. I’ve only got time for a few questions.” He combs his silver-tipped hair back with his fingers and throws me one of his roguish grins.
Moi: “No worries.” Pffft! I wave him to a chair. “How did you get here?” It’s not like he hangs around in Princeton.
Jagger: “I Wandered over. I was in London at Alfred’s house.”
Moi: “Well, thanks for taking the time to come. I really appreciate it.”
Jagger: “I was a bit surprised when you called. I am but a small player in Fusion.”
Moi: “True, but I was delighted when you turned up at the very start! I sort of wish that you could have stuck around. Where did you go?”
Jagger: “I was merely tasked with accompanying Rupert to London. So that’s what I did.”
Moi: “What’s going on that Rupert had to resume his duties before he was supposed to? We didn’t really find out anything about what was happening in the other dimension.”
Jagger: “You will in Uprising. Suffice it to say that there is ongoing turmoil, and I am very involved with it. In fact, I need to return to London very soon.”
Moi: “Can you tell us anything at all about it?”
Jagger: Shakes his head.
Moi: “What happens when Olivia, Arizona, and Kellan travel back to the other dimension? Are they walking into trouble?”
Jagger: “Very much so. Rupert did mange to secure Mountain View. However, the rest of the world is in chaos.”
Moi: “Will we ever find out what happens to them? I mean, we did get a sneak at what happens ten years from now, but what about until then?”
Jagger: “You will find a lot of stuff out in Uprising.”
Moi: “I know you have to go, but before you do, can you tell me if Cordelia is okay?”
Jagger: His face darkens, and he stands up. He comes over and kisses my hand, and then he fades away.
