Three worlds exist alongside one another. While each one has its own problems, seemingly separate, in a magical way, they are all connected. On one world, magic and madness are two sides of one coin. Ruled by dragons, the world's towns are culled of the mad and the magically gifted in the rite of Election. Those chosen are taken away, never to be seen again, as if they never existed. Galen is a man whose dreams are filled with magic and madness both, so while he is horrified to be Elected, it is unsurprising. Being elected brings him into contact with other chosen people and involves him in a quest to save all three worlds. On one world, the fairys live, and their fate is tied to a princess. On the third, the goblins and their machines rule, but for some reason, the machines are being problematic. All three worlds' fates rest in the hands of 'madmen' and dreamers. ................ *** The Hickmans have created a highly complex world system. At its heart is love and loyalty. At times it may be difficult to see how the three plotlines interconnect, but it is a challenging read for the academic fantasy lover. ***Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
