The story told takes place on a planet very similar to Earth called Endura. The initial presentation of the story is captivating and invites reading until the end. The prologue presents three important periods in the history of Endura: Late Antiquity, The Dark Age, and The New Age.

This fascinating story begins two thousand years after the start of The New Age. Doric and his imaginary friend Thane approached the forbidden zone, despite the fact that his father had told him several times.

After being attacked by a skine, an animal with powerful wings and claws, Doric discovers that he has an unbeatable healing power. His fractured arm and broken neck had healed and only traces of dried blood were evidence of the attack suffered.

After a year of what happened, a new imaginary friend appears in Doric's mind: Crogan, a human being, who was transmitting messages of bad omens. This makes his father's concern grow because of his son's vivid imagination. However, Doric watched as in his city Brackens things were changing. The poor harvests, the increase in thefts, missing persons, made the premonition that something bad was to come, despite the general appearance that everything was fine.

What I liked most about the book is that it keeps the interest awake from the beginning, with a fresh and interesting narrative. What I liked least is that the character is too young to tell those experiences from the beginning. It doesn't make sense to me.

Well written and intended for young adults, the book is presented with very good writing and grammar. I give this book a rating of 3 out of 4 stars{/b]
