Tru died at a very young age, and when she was resuscitated, she came back with a powerful gift – the ability to travel to Shaolin, a parallel realm, in her dreams.Taus, her sentinel in Shaolin, was assigned to Tru the moment she was blessed with this gift, and has watched her from afar for the better part of her life. Taus himself was a child when he received his charge and was raised with his duties in mind: to physically and mentally prepare to defend Tru’s safety, should there ever be a need. But through the years, as he fortified his personal knowledge of her, he has grown to love her deeply.That love pushes Taus to his very limits of self-discipline and focus when he finds Tru in Shaolin, stranded in a corporeal state, having fallen victim to an insidious races curse as they sought to procure her gift. Encountering various mystical creatures in their travels, they traverse the dangerous magical realm seeking a cure – Taus stoically trying to save that which is his, and his feisty companion fighting him every step of the way. Coming from different worlds and experiences, Taus and Tru don’t see eye-to-eye on much, but to reach a minimum level of safety, they will need to find a way to break down their own defensive barriers and discover the intimate bond they share.
