Ariane's life is already a mess when she hears the singing. Two years ago, her mother disappeared. Ariane bounced around different foster homes until her aunt finally took her in. Now she's become the prime target of the meanest clique at school. And to top it all off, she is having frightening premonitions, and they are becoming more intense. The moment water touches her skin, she starts hallucinating--about a lake, a lady and a sword. When a staircase opens up in Regina's Wascana Lake and the water begins singing to her, she has no choice but to answer the call. Ariane learns she is a descendant of the Lady of the Lake, and soon the story she thought was legend becomes a real-life nightmare. She and her unexpected companion, Wally Knight, are charged with finding the scattered shards of Excalibur before Merlin can get his hands on them. The infamous magician, known in this world as software tycoon Rex Major, is trying to recover the pieces of Arthur's sword so he can reforge it and restore his limitless power.

Teenage Ariane has moved in with her Aunt Phyliss. She has developed visions whenever water touches her skin. These visions lead her to Wascana Lake where Ariane learns that she is a descendant from the Lady of the Lake. Ariane comes to realize that she is actually living what she thought was a legend. With the help of Wally Knight, the younger brother of one of the girls who bullies Ariane, they have to find the scattered shards of Excalibur before the real (evil) Merlin does (he now goes by the name Rex Major). Who will find Excalibur first? Find out in the first novel in the Shards of Excalibur series.
