Overview

Jeffrey Allbright sells his Wisconsin family farm and leaves his fiancee behind to look for his brother, Jared, who was declared Missing in Action at the Battle of Cantigny during World War I. With only a handful of documents, a photograph, and a lead from a distant German cousin who fought on the other side of the war, he travels to France to begin his search.


After learning from the dead that his brother is not among them, Jeffrey travels to Morocco where he encounters conniving dragomen, the horrors of slavery, and a brewing anti-colonial revolution.


As Jeffrey becomes swept up in events both in the real world and in the world of dreams, the borders between sanity and insanity disappear. He travels to a place where angels and demons are not quite what they seem, dreams and waking experience co-mingle, time has no place, and danger lurks both without and within. The very powers of heaven and hell hedge up the way, testing the strength of his psyche, resolve, and love. He is helped in his quest by Mahanjero, a mystic African guide, and Burroughs, a strange mortal living in the dreamlands. But can he trust Burroughs or Mahanjero as he slips in and out of the waking world and the uncharted regions of dream? More importantly, can he trust himself to discern between what is real and what is not? Only Archangel Morpheus holds the answers.
