About the Book
Across the planet Adrian, dark magic is spreading upon the birth of an angel known as The Allia. The sole survivor of a race of angels and enemies of the demon lord Zxarvixar, a young Xavier witnesses the death of his mother by a fierce night dragon. Struggling to grasp peace and comfort, Zavier befriends the dragon, now called Nightmare, and is found by his new caretaker, Jacob Soars. He shows Xavier, through his teachings, that he is worth more than he thinks. With this, Xavier searches not only for love, but for his purpose. From here, two encounters change his life forever. His wife, Bonesella, and his closest, and most secret friend, Isaac. As he is caught between these two loves, Xavier discovers his true power – miraculous healing through surprising means. As he struggles to develop his power, he must fight to keep his family safe and find the strength to be true to himself and the person he loves most.
