SARA, a young sculptor in Louisville, Kentucky, dreams about a strange world every night. Where does she go? Is she just losing it because of stress? Sara’s twin sister, Marilla, lies in a coma while Sara struggles to graduate from the university with her degree in Material Arts. The class diva, Chantal, is hassling her. And on top of everything else, her best friend Peter wants to date. It’s enough to make anyone sleepwalk.
Choosing to defy the Conclave, TRYSTAN sets out, risking capture and mind control in order to obtain a magical lute through a shadow network. Far to the north, a young luthier-wizard named DANE meets a sinister stranger and barely escapes with his life. Dane’s fate entwines with Trystan’s. Both must follow the true Song with the help of an ethereal guide they only know as Sara, or see their world destroyed.
