Description: The Gift is a story wrapped up inside another story, and like a gift, the unwrapping is almost as important as what's inside. Inside this gift is a story of innocence betrayed and magic rejected. A boy named Tim is robbed of his childhood. A young king named Simon is tormented by hearing made magically acute. Both are victims of The Usher of the Night, once a boy like them but now pathetically twisted by his own ambition, and the malevolent creature of magic called Tomen. Together Simon and Tim must rid their land of the old near-forgotten magic perverted by the misuse of Tomen and The Usher.

The Gift is an exploration of the art of storytelling, a coming-of-age tale in a place and time when magic is not the ring to be grabbed but the poison to be shunned. This Gift is one that will be opened, read, and treasured for a long time to come.
