Description

This a story about a boy and his brother and the complexities of growing up when language and learning don't come naturally. Tom has strange dreams that creep up on him when he doesn't expect them. And these dreams don't just happen when he goes to sleep: they can happen any time. Sometimes he uses them to help him deal with problems but other times he has no control at all. When he finds himself in a different world inhabited by creatures of legend he is forced to take stock.In this world the dead row longships; demons can be seen walking in the daylight; there are sorcerers, part human part reptile; and here there be dragons. Tom's dreams are not just experienced by him. His brother Sam has them too and so do his parents. They are also watched by the Titan, Prometheus, as he searches for a way to escape the punishment that the Gods have unleashed on him. Bound to a rock, he seeks relief from his daily torment in dreams and it is in those dreams that he sees the young boy as he moves between his own world and that of myth. Whilst Prometheus in his own world is handsome and majestic, in Tom's world of dreams he is The Watchers, a hideous and monstrous creature, blackened and scarred by fire. There he is a thing of horror and so to Tom it is a serious concern that this creature seems to be trying to break through into his real life. But Tom is not alone. His younger brother Sam also moves in and out of this mythical world and his powers as a Sibilant (part wizard and part reptile) provide Tom with help at need. An even greater surprise is that his parents can see into this world and his father appears in dragon form whilst his mother is a sorceress. Is that enough to overcome the power of one of the ancient gods?
