Aniol is immediately attracted to Kaji, but his past experiences and abuse make it difficult to trust Kaji. Kaji's attraction and need to keep Aniol safe is overwhelmed by his need to be close to Aniol. As Kaji and Aniol become closer, the situation on Duiem begins to spin out of control, and somehow Aniol is at the very heart of the matter. What is Aniol's past and could the legend of the gatekeepers be involved? Is it possible that the legend about the Land of Gold and the Land of Silver be true?

Ms. Auster has written an incredible tale that takes the reader on an incredible journey that spans two worlds. The mystery behind Aniol and his ultimate destiny ensnares that reader as the plot unfolds. The growing attraction between Kaji and Aniol is strengthened throughout the many difficulties they have to overcome together. The difference in the two worlds and how the gatekeepers kept the worlds stabilized was amazing. The magical components of the story add mystery and wonder to the story. Thanks go to Ms. Auster for an incredible story that will remain one of my favorites.
