Keeping it Real is a book set not too far in the future, a future in which a particle collider has ripped open a hole in the universe, allowing access to several other planes of existence inhabited by a variety of fantasy staples such as elves, demon, and faeries. Lila Black is a cyborg built by the US government as a prototype after a disastrous diplomatic mission to the realm of the elves nearly killed her. She has been assigned to guard an elven rock star from assassins that persist in attempting to kill him. Little does she know that the plot to kill her charge is in fact a part of a greater plan by the leader of the elves to return separation to the planes.
