After nightmares begin to seep into Cael's waking life, a mysterious stranger arrives offering to help. But that help comes at a steep price. Taken from their families, Wynn joins Cael on his journey across the Five Kingdoms as they struggle to find reason behind the powers they've been cursed with.
Unsure of their guide, Landon, and fearful of those around them, Cael and Wynn experiment with their abilities alone. The dreams they share offer a dangerous new gift, one neither of them could have expected.
As they try to navigate their new connection they find themselves questioning their choice to follow Landon and what his true motives are. When the ominous rebels confront them, will they betray the man who protected them or will they fight to save his life?
"...a meticulously imagined world that aims for the grandeur of an epic fantasy saga, one with the breadth of a J.R.R. Tolkien or J.K. Rowling novel...[and] the story offers enough heart, action and charm to be worthy of the author's impressive ambitions." - BlueInk Review
"[A] highly entertaining coming-of-age novel... punctuated with stories within stories [reminiscent] of Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. I certainly wait for the next book to tie the loose ends at the end of the story[!] - OnlineBookClub Review
"[Set in a] vast landscape filled with magic, intrigue, epic characters and plenty of action." - BlueInk Review

I loved reading this book as it was like diving into a new incredible world. I like that Cael is born into a hard working class family, but soon finds he is more different than his family, friends, and most people around him.
This book is so incredibly captivating; bringing out most emotions throughout the book and the way the store was told, forming a emotional rollacoaster for the reader.
I love the relationships and insight Cael has. He is so in tune with his feelings as well as the things and events around him. I also love the stories told inside of the story; this history of the story's past gave me as a reader a much better understanding of the story and brought me that much closer to both Cael and Wynn.
I rather enjoyed the author's writing style as it is easy to read while also being to affect you emotionally.
There's not much I dislike about this book, if anything at all. I recommend this to most audiences, maybe to readers 12 years and over because of some of the frightening events and slight violence.
This was a great book and I highly recommend reading it. Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to read this book.
This was an incredibly captivating read! I love diving into new worlds and really enjoyed the writing style and characters of this book.
Cael was the typical hardworking, normal person until he finds that he is not very normal at all.
I did find the pacing quite odd with a bit of filler in the middle, but an overall good story to enjoy!
