Giels has grown up believing he was destined for two things: One, becoming the Lead Storyteller of his tribe, and two, marrying his childhood sweetheart, Cleo. But all his carefully laid plans fall apart when their eccentric tech genius friend, Erikal, builds a miraculous new flying machine and offers them a journey beyond the ends of the known World.
Tomorrow was supposed to be Giels’s moment. Prove his knowledge of the ancient stories for the shamans and secure his future in tribal leadership. But now all Cleo can talk about is this new adventure . . . and her growing affection for Erikal.
They leave before dawn. Will Giels honor his commitments to his parents and risk losing the love of his life? Or will he abandon everything he’s worked for to stay by her side, even if that means passing into lands no mortals were meant to enter—at the whims of a madman?
One thing is for certain: There are darker secrets behind those ancient stories than he ever dreamed of—and everything he thinks he knows about reality is about to change.
