From the author of the Dream State Saga, comes this exciting new fantasy short story.
For years, Nathan has learned about summoning Melkai, monstrous beings from another dimension. He never thought he’d get to see one this soon. When Master Morrow begins his first hands-on lesson, Nathan realizes that there is far more to summoning than long lectures and old books.
These creatures are dangerous, deadly even. A Melkai loose in the human dimension could cause a terrible number of deaths, perhaps even destroy the castle that Nathan calls home. For the first time, Nathan wonders if he even wants to be a Caller.
When a summoning goes horribly wrong, Nathan must decide if his powers can be used for good or if Melkai are too dangerous to ever try to control.
