Prince of Dreams is the second novel in the magnificent fantasy series Seven Brothers, which draws upon the rich legends, cultures, and traditions of the East to create an epic tale of kingdoms lost, nobles enslaved, families reunited, and gods reborn.

It began when Llesho was seven, and the Harn invaded his family’s mountain kingdom of Thebin. His guards slaughtered before his eyes, he was carried off and sold into slavery on Pearl Island, as far as he knew, the sole survivor of his royal family.

At fifteen, visited by the specter of his newly dead mentor, he learned that his brothers were still alive and had also been sold into slavery. And so began his quest to earn his freedom by becoming a successful gladiator, and then to travel the lands finding and rescuing his brothers so that together they might raise an army and win back their kingdom from the cruel and barbaric Harn.

But each success led Llesho into still greater peril, and even with the aid of two of his brothers, the trickster god himself, a young witch and her even more powerful father, several of his fellow gladiators, and the Emperor Shou, Llesho was not certain he would be able to reach his goal. Not when both the Harn and the evil Master Markko were set on his death, and not when the very gates of Heaven seemed to be shut against him. Only if Llesho could learn the truth about his own mysterious heritage and the powers locked inside him did he stand any chance of saving his own people and reopening the pathway between mortals and gods....

About the Author:

Curt Benjamin is the author of the Seven Brothers trilogy. He has a degree in art from Antioch University. In his spare time, he is a designer and children’s illustrator.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this sequel to The Prince of Shadow (2001), Benjamin provides plenty of rousing fantasy adventure rooted in the traditions and philosophies of East Asia. Llesho, the prince who escaped from slavery in the first book, is on a quest to find his four (out of six) older brothers still missing, raise an army and free his homeland, Thebin. Master Den the trickster God, the Emperor Shou, Adar (the first of his two brothers with whom he's been reunited) and a host of others accompany our hero on his mission. When the enemy Harn who haunt his dreams capture his companions, two of his brothers whisk him away to assist the dream readers of Ahkenbad, who are dying from drought. Aided by Pig, a Jinn in the dream world, he is able to secure a water supply, but his old enemy, the magician Markko, murders the dream readers. When the good magician Habiba arrives, the two of them attempt to free Llesho's friends and the emperor from the Harn. Joining forces with the Southern Khan, Llesho takes instruction with their shaman to learn to master the dream world and change shape. While many characters are little more than names, Benjamin is adept at blending the various fantasy elements into a vivid, richly detailed narrative. Those who haven't read The Prince of Shadow may have trouble getting their bearings at first, but once they do, they'll enjoy the pell-mell ride as much as existing fans.
