A Novel of the Silent Empire. The lush and beautiful forest planet of Bellerophon is home to a cacophony of noises, but its resident psychics are known as the Silent. Previously they could travel to the Dream, a telepathic plane of existence where they could twist the laws of reality. But that time is over… One madman's lust for power tore the Dream asunder. Now only a handful of the Silent can enter it. Kendi Weaver is one of them. As an election for the governorship of Bellerophon begins, Kendi is caught in the crossfire. Attempts on his life — and a rash of Silent kidnappings — point to a political enemy…or a personal one. Either way, the future of the Dream is at stake. And Kendi fears it may become a nightmare.
