The Thirteenth Hour
by Joshua Blum
''The ancient clock in the Land of Dreams struck thirteen, and the dreams, now free, soared back to Earth under first vesper’s light.''
And so begins ''The Thirteenth Hour,'' a tale about dreams and wishes, wild hearts and childhood promises, and the quest to find the unsung hero that lies in all of us. In it, Logan is a young man who must leave his sleepy village to be a soldier in King Darian IV's Imperial Army. Although immediately at odds with military life, Logan’s tour is surprisingly extended when he is picked to be specially trained for a mysterious quest to find the secret to eternal life, catapulting him alone into an epic adventure he had previously only thought possible in daydreams and fairy tales. Along the way, he discovers a little about dreams, love, growing older, and that maybe, just maybe, he's up to the task that's been set before him after all.
