Tris Carter Horne had dreamed of a beautiful girl with hair like flame and eyes of emerald green all his life. When he had grown, the dreams became nightmares so horrifying that he was afraid to sleep. Then the dreams became real, and he found himself battling a creature so savage it was beyond belief. Suddenly, he found himself falling down a brilliant corridor and heard the creature scream in pain. Then there was nothing but darkness. When he woke, he found himself in a strange land. What had happened, and was he safe? Would he see more of the creatures that attacked him? Suddenly, he was afraid. Very afraid.
