In a world where everyone falls asleep as soon as the Dark falls, there are a select few who remain awake. The famous "Dreamcasters" of the realm have the prized ability to actually "dream while awake." Soon-to-be-eighteen-year-olds Lyght and Mikael are one of these chosen few, and seek to confront the mysterious Dark with their abilities. At least, before a surprise arrives in their hometown. More
Things are different at night.
When the Dark comes, life is good. While asleep, everyone lives out their wildest dreams. Life becomes perfect, and there are no worries. None at all, unless you happen to be awake.
For some people, living in the world known as the Dreamscape is one giant contradiction. There are some cursed, yet blessed few who just can’t sleep, no matter how hard they might try. For them, life just doesn’t seem to add up. There are certain… things that happen at night that you have to be awake to experience. For when the Dark is present, things disappear, shadows creep, and nothing is as it seems. When daylight returns, humankind returns with it.
It is this dichotomy that young soon-to-be eighteen-year-old Lyght has inhabited his whole life. Along with his friend Mikael, Lyght literally lives on the boundaries of the world while it sleeps in ignorance. People like them cannot sleep, for they have the rare, prized ability of “Dreamcasting” – the ability to dream, in a sense, while awake. Not knowing what they will find, these two virtual brothers face the Dark head on, using their unnatural abilities to take upon themselves the role of the vaulted “Legends” in the Dreamscape – heroes who protect the world as it slumbers in silence. In this grave task, they are strained to their limits. But very soon, they are in for the surprise, and ride, of their lives.
Sometimes, however, the unknown is better left that way.
