Join two human siblings as they begin the journey of a lifetime. Alexis and Varren, 16 and 17 years old, live in the land of Ithaca, where six groups dominate the planet: elves, dwarves, gnomes, were-creatures, dragons, and humans.

Zhishuai Chen's "Discovery"

Teenage author's first book is an inventive fantasy geared toward young readers -- and is sure to be a hit!

The brothers lead a normal life until rebellion arises against the humans’ tyrannical ruler and the two are handed the "Book of Time" which can transport anything through time, making it the most powerful object in the land. The boys and their grandfather must travel across Ithaca to reach Karakorum, the rebels’ base, to deliver the book.

Varren possesses a form of magic called Persuasion, while Alexis has a talent even more potent and mysterious. When they finally reach Karakorum, a terrible secret is revealed. On their journey, the siblings see wondrous things, and they also experience love, anguish, injury, and death. But when there seems to be no mysteries left, when they finally reach Karakorum, Alexis and Varren hear something that would have been better left buried.
