The world of magic, ancient hierarchies and powerful family legacies had never been a threat for the orphan Nicholas Creed. But now, with the loss of his sweet oblivion, life has never felt so dangerous.
The year 1901, Nicholas finds his way to New York with hopes of a new start, and to escape his toxic sister. Instead he discovers Regium, a brainwashed powerful man with foul intentions, who needs his magic for an ancient spell.
After a Keeper, guide of the dead, Rebecca Cardinham saves him from an attack, he soon learns about the magic that is entwined in the world's ley-lines and how he seems to be at the bottom of an ancient hierarchy.
Nicholas struggles to control his ability to send people to sleep and manipulate their dreams, but without control, he is all too vulnerable. Corruption clawing rapidly towards him, Magicians with not-so-fake magic and mysterious allies, it seems his options are proving slim.
As Nicholas dives head first into danger, his childhood friend, Gus, and newest companion, Rebecca, dive in straight after.
Will those close to him only use him for control, even when he is unable to discipline himself? Will Regium and the mysterious puppeteer pulling his strings succeed in their cryptic mission?
I'm using Australian grammar so some things may be spelt differently from where you live.
I will use a bit of mild swearing (:
I tried to make it as historically correct as possible, but there may be some mistakes.
I'll try to update weekly!
