The Traveler's red, hourglass figures that mark Cletis Dungarvan's youthful shoulders remind him constantly he is a mutant. But why him? When the lid of the ancient box burns with the phrases of a second prophecy, Cletis, Garth, and Abish Dungarvan know their winter's peace has ended. And when the mysterious woman of light places living objects inside Cletis's palms, a path of peril opens before him--a labyrinth he is compelled to navigate against his wishes. Thrust into the realm of a new prophecy, and at the mercy of powerful Travelers, Cletis is forced to risk his life to discover his true identity and his potential control of earth and Time. But a Traveler who is a Breathcaster--one with power to restore life--has never existed. Until Cletis Dungarvan. Be that a blessing or a curse, Cletis will soon discover.
