Henry Murphy may have been unaware of the world he belongs to, but his memory will soon be put to the test as the fate of his family depends on him finding the light, which will give him supernatural powers. Henry’s parents ran away after discovering the location of the furnace —something that gave Nekura uncontested power over everything living. Nekura soon caught up with them, and now it's up to Henry to save his family, and he can’t do so without finding the light and the location of the furnace. Charley is the only person helping him through this turmoil, an orphaned girl who didn’t let her troubled past take away her will and determination to survive in an otherwise unforgiving world. Will Henry Murphy get to the furnace before Nekura destroys his parents, this world, and the realm that he belongs to? Each step he takes can change his destiny forever —and he must be careful as he fights off evil creatures that he can't touch.
