Jason Bennett never intended to change the world, his own or anyone else's. Then an ordinary family vacation sends the teenager to Teleria, an extraordinary world of might and magic. Thought to be a figure from an ancient prophecy, Jason gets caught in a dangerous tug of war between the ruling Circle of Nine and one of his own ancestors who opposes them.
Not exactly the vacation he had planned.
