Not even Kaspian himself knows precisely what happened to him during his unaccounted-for ninety-six hours -- though he does remember a light, three evil leprechauns, his dead father, and a frighteningly seductive angel-like being. The adults who control the sullen, disaffected teenager's immediate destiny view his disappearance -- and his silence about it -- as acts of passive-aggressive rebellion to be nipped in the proverbial bud.
But Kaspian believes his memories and emotions are precious treasures belonging to him alone. Now he must staunchly defend them from his born-again stepmother, a megalomaniacal alternate education tsar, sexually ambiguous counselors, corrupt Washington politicos, and wacko ufo abduction theorists. Recent events suggest that the laws of what's possible on this living Earth are constantly changing. And Kaspian must find his own way into the heart of the Great Mystery.

Fifteen-year-old Kaspian Aaby walks out of a repressive summer camp for troubled teens and into the Maine woods. He awakens the next morning to find that four days have passed and he is 60 miles from where he should be. It was no dream, his strange nocturnal experience of mysterious beings that may be malevolent fairies or aliens, an angel, and the ghost of his dead father. Frightened, Kaspian's born-again stepmother exiles him to an authoritarian private school in Virginia, where obsessed alien-abduction investigators, extremist educational theorists, and paranoid politicians seek to use him for their own purposes. But Kaspian has allies and abilities that even he has not guessed at.
Richard Grant is the acclaimed author of Through the Heart (which received the Philip K. Dick Award), Tex and Molly in the Afterlife, and In the Land of Winter (in which Kaspian plays a small but crucial role). --Cynthia WardAbout the Author:
