Forced to flee the Godlian Invasion, two princes of Korshan are flung to their separate destinies. The warrior Prince Talland to seduction and betrayal by the Godlian Questioner s daughter, and dream-reader Prince Orland to his mother's birthplace of Nef Island: where Godlian clerics are secretly burning the ancient library, and where no one of the royal lineage should ever feel safe. Exiled among indigenous healer-women condemned as witches, Talland must learn from them enough courage and wisdom to create and lead a rebellion. Orland must somehow escape Nef Island with the ancient wisdom scrolls safely aboard ship. Hiding in the northern mountains or on the southern archipelago sea, two royal brothers must learn to embrace each other's opposite natures in time to outmaneuver a brutal fundamentalist empire.

Gary Glickman is the author of three novels, Years From Now (Knopf,1987), Aura (Haworth Press, 2004), and The Scrolls of Nef (Hand to Hand Press, 2015). Twice the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and a New York Foundation for the Arts award in fiction, he is one half of the songwriting duo, the Dream Brothers, composers most recently of an album of song-settings of Walt Whitman's visionary lyrics, Full of Life Now. A body-centered psychotherapist, he lives in Santa Monica, California, and the Big Island of Hawaii, where he hosts healing and contemplative retreats between volcano and ocean, in the cleanest air on the planet.Review:
This is an enchanting, enthralling book that, by some magic of storytelling, let me understand mysteries of my own life. Tyrant princesses, estranged queens, a warrior brother and a young hero who learns through myriad strange adventures that threw a brilliant light on my own passage in the world. A cross between the fast-paced fantasy writer Ursula K. LeGuin and the keen psychological witness Marcel Proust, Glickman pulls you into his dazzling world so entirely that you will want to stay up all night reading, and saying thank you. --Bonnie Friedman, author of Writing Past Dark, The Thief of Happiness and Surrendering Oz
Glickman weaves a psychological insight and compelling imagination into a story full of powerful incident and rich characters. I didn't want the story, or his insights, to end. --Rob Perkins, author of Into the Great Solitude and Talking to Angels.
This is the kind of book I love recommending to my friends. The author weaves a story of such fierce beauty and dire tenderness that by the end of the story, even the raggedy places inside you have been mysteriously rewoven. This is a Wisdom Tale for the ages, and for all refugees of the heart longing for the welcome of Home. --Penny Key, Psychotherapist
