What if the world holds more dangers—and more wonders—than we have ever known?
And what if there is more than one world?
Jonathan is perfectly ordinary. But then—as every good adventure begins—the king swoops into port, and Jonathan and his father are enlisted to find the cure to a deadly plague.
Jonathan discovers that he’s a prodigy at working with a new chemical called fantillium, which creates shared hallucinations—or illusions.
And just like that, Jonathan is knocked off his path.
