The dreamplague grips the elves of Tellest. It is the one thing that threatens their immortality beyond the tip of a sword, or the dancing flames upon the fingers of a hostile wizard. For eighteen years, Venathryn has been afflicted with the dreamplague. Slowly it has been festering in her mind, wreaking irrevocable damage to her in a place of supposed reverie. Finally having enough, her family employs the services of Maravek, the dreamwalker. Together, the two elves will find what horrors haunt Venathryn's dreams, and they will discover just how reliable our dreams are when they are plagued by guilt and regret.
