Seventeen-year-old Aes has lived his entire life in backwater-central, Horizon Banks, Nebraska. Where nothing new happens. Ever.
Until a couple of mysterious strangers show up.
Now the drowsy streets of his small town are vanishing, literally, before his eyes. And he's haunted by dreams about living another life, in another world. The hot-and-cold daughter of the mayor tries to stab him, but she doesn't know why. Not to mention the birds...
Whatever's going on, one thing's for sure, if Aes doesn't find a way out of his small town, it'll kill him.

How would you know if things are real, unless you was given an alternative that made you question your reality......A.M.Yates has given us another family of characters, adding to the Gates, Keepers and Guardians faction. In this book we follow a male, main character as he battles against Reality, but which reality is real, and which of his friends are also real? You become absorbed from the first words of chapter one and find another riveting original way, these new characters stories come together. You get such a vivid story telling voice ingrained in your mind that as places and worlds change, you seamlessly flow with them. You feel the suspense, pain, elation, sorrow, worry mixed in with a longing, a hope, a wish, a love that can’t be. It was great how the previous characters from the previous books are now coming together and I can’t wait to re-visit Brend & Ollie and the gates family, Kiri and the clans, Ase, Sparrow and Zale. How much I have enjoyed this series, I’m looking forward to the conclusion... I just need a heads up when the next book is to be published, so I can plan not sleeping or engaging in anything but the ingenuity and suspense of A.M.Yates and the Horizon Cycle Series.
I've read all this author's books and love them. Worth the read!!!
This is masterful world-building. The first two books of the Horizon Cycle are amazing, but separate tales. This book brought the two plotlines together and I can't wait to read the next book!
