“Keaney is sure to gain a big readership with this first title... It will captivate readers with a taste for suspense and psychological thrills.” — School Library Journal
In Tanegar, a sinister island where the laws of the mysterious Dr. Sigmundus hold sway, dreaming will get you locked up and branded a lunatic. Dante is a lowly kitchen boy. Bea is the privileged daughter of physicians. They aren’t meant to meet or share ideas, or, most dangerous of all, their dreams. But with the arrival of a notorious prisoner to the island's asylum, their worlds collide. Together they begin to question whether the promises they’ve based their lives on have been spun from lies and illusion — and if now is the time to break them.
