While visiting his ailing mother in the secure wing of a psychiatric hospital, Luke Boyle eavesdrops on a delirious patient, Sye, who is desperate to return to his world of monsters, magic and gods. Sye’s mutterings are so bizarre that Luke befriends him and records Sye's story, with a view to stealing ideas to liven up his failed fantasy novel.
From the day he saw his own reflection in a pail of water, Sye knew that he was different. If only he'd known just how different, perhaps he wouldn't so easily have rejected the horned people of Westwinds Castle, who put aside their prejudices to follow him. Or laughed at their ancient prophecy. Maybe he wouldn't have sworn revenge on his childhood friend or scoured the world for clues to his origin and a place he could call home. It would have saved so many lives.
As it was, fear and logic proved poor weapons against myth and monsters. Not that Sye failed to find what he was looking for. It's just that he didn't realise the sacrifices involved or the fact that his fate and that of the world were connected. Until it was too late, and everything, even the safety of Luke’s world, was at stake.
