Fourteen-year-old Khioneus Nevula is beginning to realize something strange is going on. Adopted from unknown parentage, he has always been marked as different by his purple eyes.
Now a winter break that should have been nothing but goofing around with his best friends is haunted by some other presence—ghostly apparitions appear to him in the dark of night, the surface of his mirror ripples like a pool of water, and he dreams of a girl with a long blue braid who invents fantastical devices.
Drawn into a mystical land, he meets his twin sister, a proficient mage, a slightly mad scientist, and a princess. In this land where he is a prince, he finds himself and his friends caught in a war between the inhabitants of Elkloria and an ancient and powerful evil.you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.

“Rishab Borah’s brisk, inventive storytelling channels a coming-of-age tale that dazzles like lightning.” Alvaro Zinos-Amaro, author, When the Blue Shift Comes
“The story is told first-hand with very enjoyable touches, sometimes humorous, other times conveying the urgency of facing an ancient corrupting power.” ―Cynthia Parkhill, Santa Rosa Library
"Escape into a gorgeous world crafted by a passionate, intelligent, imaginative wordsmith. This is no debut. It's a magnificent feast of the imagination. This adventure moves at light speed and is brimming with mythology, science, magic, fantasy, teenage angst, and heart. Follow Khi, Nessa, Metara, and Max on a journey that will leave you breathless long after the last page." ―Mark Pelletier, Book Talk
