I can remember as a youth, nestled under heavy blankets on a cold winters night just delving into my favorite books. As a young man with no lacking for vivid imagination I often would craft my own costumes of my favorite characters from the stories. Brandishing my cardboard tube that you get out of the center of wrapping paper for a sword and wearing an old blanket I would play with my brothers in the backyard. Each of us would argue over who got to be the good guys and bad guys and usually as the oldest I got to be the hero more than once. :) This story reminds me of being young in the days of high adventure and endless imagination that behold a sort of magic one looks back on fondly with the warm summer glow of happy days gone by.Was this review helpful?

Somewhere there's a world full of magic and highly advanced technology. The sun has died long ago, and the world is divided in a dark half and a day half. The people of the day live to serve the seven seraphims, their gods, and the people of the dark live to serve their empress. However, due to some events in the past, Dark and Day are on the brink of war.
Somewhere in the twilight of the dark, there's a little boy named Jonothon Wyer. However, Jono is not a normal boy. He goes to school like all the other kids, but he has a dysfunctional heart and weak lungs. Therefor he always has to carry around a heart regulator on wheels and wear a breathing mask so all the dust and smog won't choke him.
However, there's a special program set up by the empress of the dark, that will fix any problems a child may have. But the price for this is a lifetime of servitude in the army of the dark. If Jono is not helped he will probably die, so he agrees to serve in the army, in exchange for medical help and an education on Windom Academy.
Then the whole story takes a dramatic turn when on his birthday Jono finds an ancient relic, which is supposed to be able to destroy Day ór Dark. This is also when Jono learns the bloodstained truth about the empress. He and the tumnkin Alexsayter Aquinas start a grueling journey to the land of Day, hunted by the minions of the empress.
Or at least, so it seems...
