Artan is forcibly taken from his home and led on a journey that will change his life - and the fate of his world - forever.

Having read another short story by the author I found this one, also a set up for the book Eladria. This features a teenage boy with a hidden power, and an attack on his home. The details are set up nicely and the tension builds up to a rather scary climax. The first half of the story seems to be character driven and the second more action focused and surprising
