Rhys is 10 and he has a problem. There's a Darkling on his bed and it needs his help.
Rhys lives with his mum in a house that could use a lick of paint and a bit of love and he was called a daydreamer by his teacher at school.
But out of the corner of his eye Rhys saw things moving, in the hedges, in the trees and then when he looked closer he found things.........
Haunted by the dying Darkling he tries to find the magical Nexus to help the Darkling and his people return home.
