A brilliantly crafted modern tale from acclaimed film critic and screenwriter Cargill—Sinister, Deus Ex—that charts the lives of two boys from their star-crossed childhood in the realm of magic and mystery to their anguished adulthoods
Dreams and Shadows takes us into another world other than our own—one no closer than a kiss and one no further than our nightmares—where all the stuff of which dreams are made is real and magic is just a step away. Once bold explorers and youthful denizens of this magical realm, Ewan is now an Austin musician who just met his dream girl, and Colby, meanwhile, cannot escape the consequences of an innocent wish. But while Ewan and Colby left the Limestone Kingdom as children, it has never forgotten them. And in a world where angels relax on rooftops, whiskey-swilling genies argue metaphysics with foul-mouthed wizards, and monsters in the shadows feed on fear, you can never outrun your fate.
