For Amos Kent, it began as a relaxing evening sail on Puget Sound. But in a matter of minutes, a violent storm erupted, threatening life and limb. A blinding flash of violet lightning exploding over his skiff turned everything to glowing neon, making time stand still. Then there was only blackness and silence. When he awakens, Amos is in a very different world, where a telepathic dog named Grick becomes his guide to a fantastic realm filled with strange creatures and deadly danger. Their encounter with the sorceress Balera of the night dwelling Karaxians leads them into a beautiful but chilling landscape. Amos and Grick have to make their way to the ancient city of Binaltro in hopes of finding a way out of this bizarre world. Is it a dream, or has he really been transported to this strange world? Amos must find the answer to that question. His life depends on it.
