->''Three Stones, three young girls. \\
One will discover the Gift. \\
One will recognize the King. \\
One will convince the two others to die. \\
Of three Stones only one fate will remain.''

In Paris, a 14-year-old girl named Joa is succumbing to illness in a hospital. She is kept alive only by a "[[DyingDream dream]]" of a fantasy world, where [[RuleOfThree three girls]]--Jade, Opal, and Amber--are chosen by a prophecy to restore goodness to the world. The girls have nothing in common. Jade is the spoiled daughter of a Duke; Opal is a quiet, [[EmotionlessGirl seemingly emotionless]] strange girl; Amber is an impoverished but kindhearted peasant. Strangers at first and forced to go on a quest together because of the prophecy, they ultimately become {{true companions}} after their [[FireForgedFriends shared ordeals]].

Each of them is given a precious stone corresponding to their names and they attempt to unravel the meaning behind the stones and the prophecy. Their quest leads them to participate in a [[LaResistance rebellion]] against the evil Council of Twelve, travel through the [[MagicLand pristine, magical realm]] of Fairy Tale, and visit the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Death. They discover from an oracle that they must defeat the Council of Twelve for good in order to fulfill the prophecy and free the land. In order to do this, they must find "TheChosenOne" who will lead the Army of Light in the final battle.

This was written by French teen Flavia Bujor wrote the novel over 6 months while she was 13 years old.

!!This work provides examples of:
* ActionGirl: Jade can kick some ass with a sword.
%%* ActionSurvivor: Jade, Opal, and Amber
%%* AgentMulder: Amber.
%%* AgentScully: Opal.
* AllJustADream: OrWasItADream. It's not very clear how Joa's dream relates to the plot with Jade, Opal, and Amber, if it's actually all just a dream or a prophecy of some kind.
%%* AllLovingHero: Amber. [[IceQueen Opal]]
%%* BattleInterruptingShout: Opal and Adrien end a battle this way.
* BarefootSage: Oonagh, emphasizing a combination of wisdom and childlike innocence.

%%* BecauseDestinySaysSo:
%%* BigGood: [[spoiler: Elyador]] becomes this.
%%* BirthmarkOfDestiny: [[spoiler: Joa]] has one.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler: Janelle]], who also happens to be TheCorrupter: a seemingly nice and friendly girl who is actually a dark entity that has the power to turn people against each other; she pretends to befriend the three girls in order to sow discord among them.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: The main conflict is basically Good vs. Evil; the Army of Light doesn't have ''any'' dark side, and the Army of Darkness and the Council of Twelve lack ''any'' redeeming qualities.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Opal, Jade, and Amber respectively play this trope straight. However, the brunette (Jade) has the personality of the FieryRedhead, the redhead (Amber) might as well have HairOfGoldHeartOfGold based on her role and personality, and the blonde (Opal) is TheStoic (who turns out to be a StoicWoobie).
%%* BreakTheCutie: Amber.
%%* BreakTheHaughty: Jade and Opal.
* CassandraTruth: Neophilus is not believed when he foretells the Council of Twelve's takeover.
* CastingAShadow: The [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Army of Darkness and its associated Sorcerers of Darkness have darkness-based powers]], which we get to see when they "seal a town in darkness".

* TheChosenOne:
** Four in total: the three girls and Elyador; an ancient prophecy says that they will save the world. {{Lampshaded}} with Elyador who is explicitly referred to as "The Chosen One".
** The Ghibduls, the {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}s who hate all humans, have passed down a belief since the dawn of time that a man would come into their forest and lead them into a new era of harmony with other species.

* CreatorProvincialism: The City of Thaar, described as the last remnant of the past, is actually [[spoiler: Paris]].
%%* CreepyChild: Opal was one

* EccentricMentor: [[spoiler:The wise sorceress Oonagh is actually a small mischievous girl.]]
* EmotionEater: The birds of prey who guard Oonagh's cave. Why such a nice lady keeps them there or chooses to live in a cave surrounded by them, I have no idea.
%%* EmotionlessGirl: Opal at first.
* EvilCounterpart: The Army of Darkness to the Army of Light, and the Sorcerers of Darkness to the Sorcerers of Light.

%%* TheEvilsOfFreeWill
* FallenHero: [[spoiler: Elyador]] was described as a noble man who was seduced by the Army of Darkness, but eventually he realized the error of his ways and deserted. [[spoiler: He also got his memories erased]].
%%* FantasticRacism
* FateWorseThanDeath: Amnhor claims this happens to people who try to walk through the Seal of Darkness without magic.
%%* FireForgedFriends
* FreudianTrio: Played with. Amber is clearly TheMcCoy and Opal is a distinct [[TheSpock Spock]]. Jade, however, is not a typical [[TheKirk Kirk]]. She follows her Id (like a [=McCoy=]) but is hardly idealistic or compassionate. Moreover, she is always the last one to balance out conflict among the three, a traditional Kirk role, which Opal usually takes.
%%* GoodIsNotNice: Opal. Also- a distinct portion of the male characters.
%%* GreenEyes: Jade
* GrayEyes: Opal, of the cold and strong willed variation.
%%* TheHeart: Amber

* IDoNotDrinkWine: Elphorys munches his "sticky purple mass" while [[spoiler:Elyador]] eats his rather mundane bread and turkey.
%%* IndifferentBeauty: Opal.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: The Thirteenth Councilor plays this straight at the end. It gives the girls just enough time to figure out how to defeat him.
* KidHero: Jade, Opal and Amber trio first meet on their 14th birthdays when they go on their quest.
* KnightErrant: There is an entire class warriors wandering about called hovalyns. The Nameless One is one of them.
* {{Kuudere}}: Opal is EmotionlessGirl played straight initially, but she warms up. [[LoveInterest Adrien]] might have something to do with it.
* LaResistance: Led by Adrien against the Knights of the Council of Twelve to free the city of Nathrynn.
* LightIsGood: The Army of Light sides with the heroines.
* LonelyRichKid: Opal; her family is relatively well-to-do, but she has no friends, and is generally introverted.
* LonersAreFreaks: Opal sometimes got this treatment in her hometown; she was often given sideways glances due to being an introvert who didn't seem interested in making friendships. [[EmotionlessGirl She didn't care]].
* LoveAtFirstSight: Opal to Adrien, Amber and [[spoiler: Elyador]].
* MagicalBarefooter: Oonagh.
* MagicLand: Fairy Tale, which is explicitly described as a refuge for the magical creatures, and only people who believe in magic can enter it.
* MasterSwordsman: Jade is described as being able to best the most experienced of the Knights of the Council.
* MeaningfulName: Jade, Amber, and Opal's upbringing's and personalities seem to reflect on the history, composition, and folklore of the stones for which they're named:
** Jade has been noted to be valued in many cultures throughout history and was (and to this day still is) quite expensive, and people once believed that wearing jade would increase their bodily strength and longevity. The character Jade was raised by a wealthy family and more than capable of defending herself with swordplay.
** Amber is not technically a stone, but rather fossilized tree resin that has been attributed to love, healing and protection. The character Amber grew up on a farm so she loves being outside and she's the kindest of the three girls.
** Opals are reputed for being fragile and not rated very high on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, and during medieval times it was believed that wearing opal jewelry would keep naturally blonde hair from darkening. The character Opal is emotionally fragile and she's also naturally blonde.
** [[spoiler: Joa later points out that her name is the initials of Jade, Opal, and Amber]]. Also, [[spoiler: her ex-boyfriend is named Eli Ador]].
