Nachtay brothers Itstokay and Adrian learn early that the course of one’s life can shift dramatically in a single instant. After their father is badly injured during a hunt to gather food for the family, he sends the teen-aged boys away to master the skills they will need to survive. Under the direction of the King of Nightmares and the King of Dreams, they develop the expertise needed to prevail against a once ally species turned enemy through a grave misunderstanding. The brothers progress rapidly, until Rayckton spies infiltrate their camp. The boys are separated; each brother fears the other is dead.
Itstokay, the younger, is enslaved and endures tremendous hardships, comforted and encouraged only by occasional visions of a mysterious and lovely young woman intent on helping him. Adrian is thrown into a dungeon.
The gripping tale unfolds through the chronicles of both the righteous Itstokay and the tyrannical Erlich, king of the rival species and Itstokay’s fiercest foe. As they move closer to their epic showdown, the brothers are reunited through the dream skills each mastered. They join forces, along with allies recruited by Itstokay during captivity, to try to restore peace and tranquility to the land. The outcome will change their world forever!
