'When the Dreamwalker's Child walks in Aurobon, then shall the East be in the ascendant; a plague shall descend from the sky and the Earth will fall into shadow ...' Sam Palmer hates living in the country - he doesn't have any friends and life is dull. Until a bizarre bicycle crash leaves his body in a coma. Now he has far bigger problems. Sam wakes in Aurobon, a world similar to his own, and discovers that his accident was part of an elaborate abduction. Dark forces led by the brutal Odoursin need him for a deadly agenda, one that threatens to reach beyond Aurobon and into his own world. Aided by the fearless Skipper - an adrenalin-loving girl pilot - and on the run from insects the size of fighter jets, Sam must join the fight against Odoursin and find a way to return home. That's if the terrifying marsh dogs don't kill him first...
