Read an exclusive excerpt:
Soft swirls of light rose, dissipating as they spoke. “The others are capable, but they need our help. Peace will not come easily. We must give them strength.” “Druth will destroy our home. He will hurt the gifted ones if the nectar finds him.” “They will not survive him.” “The others must seek the will for survival. They must understand their own power.” A transient suspension held the beings in the preserve. Faint flecks of light dotted the landscape. “In these two worlds, our ideas converge, yet collide.” “He must be stopped!” “It is true.” “Naculea must endure.” “It is chosen.” Now resting upon the succulent, running rich with the life-giving nectar, the beings absorbed its energy, glowing as bright as the sun. Thirst became a distant need yet again. “We must warn… the one.” “The one who sees.” “The one who sees and hears much.” “It is the only way.” Final clicks faded into silence.
