On a trip back to his home country, Eli Hawke is betrayed by the one person he always thought he could depend on and captured by a rival magician believed dead. He is taken to a place where time moves much differently than normal. As if that’s not strange enough, he must come face to face with his own childhood horrors and his feelings for a man he once thought was his enemy. What do you do when friends suddenly become enemies and enemies become friends, and your own sanity comes into question? Even Eli’s friends and guardians may not be able to help him this time as his only ally is the spirit of his past incarnation.
