War threatens to destroy the world of Anthelion unless the holy man, Goran, can solve his prophecy riddle. For every clue he finds, another obstacle surfaces. An orphan girl, Watcher, becomes his responsibility. As if parenthood itself isn't daunting enough, she keeps a bear for a pet and transforms into her forest surroundings to avoid socialization. Hope momentarily emerges when Goran finds Benaiah, the Chosen Son of the prophecy. Only he soon discovers Benaiah is a social pariah on the verge of embracing darkness.
When Benaiah and Watcher unexpectedly meet, the two outsiders find in each other a sense of belonging they've never known. Now their emerging love promises to bring about the very war Goran is struggling to prevent.

The minute the holy man, Goran, finds the little girl, Watcher, he's on his way to reaching the prophecy that plagues him. Middleton's attention to detail, beautiful visuals, and well penned characters make following Goran's quest a very entertaining pleasure. ~~Susan Stec, author, The Grateful Undead series.
