A lovely farm boy. A girl with swallow's wings An ancient city buried in a volcano A mystery as old as blood and bone. There is more to Gabriel than the life he's ashamed of - the son of peasant winemakers, bullied relentlessly on account of his disabled mother. For Gabriel has a secret: the elaborate dream world he descends into a night - a grandiose, vivid existence - is becoming more real than his waking life. Everything changes for Gabriel when he rescues a wounded creature - a miraculous girl with swallow's wings - from the voracious pursuit of Alfio Gallo, a dangerous old enemy. Aided by the beautiful and mysterious Orlando Khan, Gabriel is conflicted by unanswered questions: who is the Dark One that dwells in the medieval tunnels beneath their city? is he just a figment of Gabriel's powerful imagination? And is the foundling really who she says she is? Wrestling with manhood whilst beckoned by ancient rites and foreign lands, Gabriel is about to make a deadly decision that changes the course of life as he knows it.... as long as he can decide which reality he's in.
