When Rhodri is summoned to the Telling Pool, little does he know the consequences this is going to bring not only for himself and his family but also for the future peace of the land. While his father is fighting in the Holy Wars, Rhodri must confront his own battles at home and be braver and more resourceful than he could have ever thought possible. Leaving behind his ailing mother, the beautiful Sarah and his friend William, Rhodri embarks on an awesome and epic journey darkened by thieves, rogues, an evil-handed sorceress and his own haunting nightmares. It will take all of Rhodri's strength, intelligence and maturity to come out of this task alive. But Rhodri will find help in unusual and unlikely places and the difficult choices he makes along the way will shape his true destiny in this multi-layered and exciting fantasy novel.
