Epic Fantasy #151; In a world under three moons, in the
courts and villages of three kingdoms, the fates of the
Dreamers are at stake. Only Dreamers can bend the power of
the gods and perform the magic that holds chaos at bay.
The Dreamers are always few in number, born of rare unions
between ruling Shapers and peasant Keepers. The Shapers no
longer believe in magic. The practical Keepers no longer
see any need for it.
The Dreamers need to find Shapers and Keepers who will
love each other, but love between the rulers and the ruled
is harder and harder to come by. While the Dreamers battle
against extinction with the help of only King Sene of
Sitrine, the rest of the world is plunged into power
struggles and turmoil. The death of a princess sends
another, Vray of Rhenlan into exile, results in the murder
of the queen of Dherrica, and plants the seeds of
revolution in Jordy the carter and Dael, captain of the
royal guard of Rhenlan. If the world no longer needs
dreamers, they think, why do we need Shapers, either? If
the world no longer needs Dreamers, Prince Damon of
Rhenlan thinks, why bother with tradition and the vows
that keep a man from obtaining all the power he can?
The rare and tender love so necessary for the birth of
Dreamers does manage to blossom between a few couples amid
the conflict, but are these small sparks enough to hold
back the darkness of war and waiting chaos?
