Leo North has spent five years remembering. He has recalled the tediousness of attending military school and the oppressiveness of living with his pious, fearful grandmother and his younger brother. He has relived the moment when everything changed.
Five years ago, Leo found a blank book in the snow and was amazed when words started to appear on the pages. Passages wove together his family's past, the history of his country, Malonia - and that of a parallel world called England, where Ryan, the heir to the Malonian throne, had been exiled following the assassination of his parents.
At the same time, Leo's narrow path took some unexpected tragic turns and the mysterious book, initially an escape, became inextricably linked to him and his world. Leo has spent five years retracing his steps and filing in the blanks of the journey he made. This is Leo's story. This is the book.
