Sasha is 14 years old and his life is normal, to say the least.
One night though, a strange dream turns his fate upside down. He is taken to a new world, one that is mysterious and dangerous and locked in the grip of a terrible war and ruled by supernatural powers. People control thoughts, cities are built on several levels and the secrets are as sharp as blades.
There, Sasha reconnects with abilities that have long lain buried, deep within himself, powers that make him exceptional, as well as an enemy.
He will have to fight for survival and to thwart his fate.
