“May our futures be of dreams, for I know the nights to be rough.
Our enemies will know only nightmares, trapped in dreams of dust.”
James Scanlan is not like other mages. He was born to a family of NoMs, a family without magic. Blessed with magic, Scanlan has flourished as a mage, performer and some would say, a person. He has travelled the magical world and encountered marvels of human innovation, and villains of the vilest kind. All manner of people have agreed on one truth; James was too good for the lowly Frontier. And yet, in his heart he yearns to go home. Frustrated, with the status quo of the Mageocracy, James longs to return home to Melbourne, Australia; a bastion of the Oceania Frontier. There he knows he can make a difference. Or perish trying.
Follow James as he returns home, set on fixing the status quo, setlling old scores, and finding peace with who he is. It may all come crashing down but until that nightmare unfolds, with friends by his side, James Scanlan will pursue his Dreams of Dust.
