Mitra and her little brother, Babak, are beggars in the city of Rhagae, scratching out a living as best as they can with what they can beg for—or steal. But Mitra burns with hope and ambition, for she and Babak are not what they seem. They are of royal blood, but their father’s ill-fated plot against the evil tyrant, King Phraates, has resulted in their father’s death and their exile. Now disguised as a boy, Mitra has never given up believing they can rejoin what is left of their family and regain their rightful standing in the world.

Then they discover that Babak has a strange gift: If he sleeps with an item belonging to someone, he can know that person’s dreams. Soon Babak and his abilities come to the attention of a powerful Magus—one who has read portents in the stars of the coming of a new king and the dawn of a new age. Soon Mitra and Babak find themselves on the road to Bethlehem…

The acclaimed author of Shadow Spinner returns to ancient Persia in this spellbinding saga—a tale filled with the color of the caravansaries and the heat of the desert, a tale that reimagines the wonder and spirit of a lost age.

    " This was an awesome book, but not too memorable. "

    " I found this book had a slow start. However, toward the middle it picked up and I began to really enjoy it. There is a surprising twist about two-thirds through the book that I definitely didn't see coming. Overall, a nice read. "

    " For anyone who is entranced by the potential power in dreams. Fletcher's vivid period imagery and her depiction of the three magi propped my mind up on the back of a camel and sent it a- wandering. "

    " this book was really pretty good. It was not the story I expected and it turned out to be a cool version of the 3 magi. "
