The kingdom of Gayome is at peace now thanks to the Tira
Nerienne and her husband the dreamsinger Durgan
Ketassian. When the Elasians invaded Gayome, the people
gathered under their monarch's banner until the enemy was
forced out of the country. The land is returning to its'
former state and the ruling couple's child Dariana is
First Daughter able to use the life stones she wears
around her neck to heal people. She doesn't feel worthy
of being First Daughter because she can't dreamsing like
her father or believe she can rule like her mother.
One day everyone that Dariana knows disappears and Relezar
Vare informs her that she must talk to the hooded stranger
to know what happened. She learns that the evil Cha'Kwain
once banished from Gayome in the Beginnings has attempted
to return by twisting the time thread to change Dariana's
present and future. It will be a place suitable to these
evil beings so the First Daughter and Relazar Vare must
travel into the past and stop the Cha'kwain at the moment
the time tear is supposed to happen. Both accept the
mission knowing it could mean their lives.
The Gayome of Dariana's time is a beautiful pastoral place
that will remind the reader of an Eden without the
serpent. The Cha'Kwain in this world represents the
serpent that was banished in the beginning. Their attempt
to return to Gayome can only be successful if the people
give in to the darkness and the two protagonists are the
only ones who can foil their plans. There is a lot of
symbolism of the creation myth in DREAM TRAVELER, a
fantastic fantasy written by a very talented writer.
