The four champions of Aralan are sent on a deadly quest deep into the Northern Mountains to find the long ago stolen crowns of the King & Queen. If all this feels like a cross between Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings, that's because it is.

The Traveler by E.B. Dawson, is a sci-fi fantasy novel set in what feels like a futuristic, technologically-advanced world. Whether or not that world is our future, or another, remains to be determined. Our main character, Anissa Robson, is starting in her new position as an intern to a politician. In this world, everything is automated and the people don't dream. Literally, they do not dream. Except, Anissa has started to dream more and more frequently of another place, a simpler life in a gloriously beautiful land.
