Dreams and Shadows
"Everything is energy that can be altered simply by willing it to be altered. It's as if we are God's waking dream, each gifted with a small piece of his consciousness; the beauty of that arrangement is that we create the dream for him. If you can understand that, if you can wrap your mind around it, then you can conjure up anything you want from out of the ether. Provided this is material enough to do it.”
C. Robert Cargill's fantasy novel Dreams and Shadows (paperback by Orion Books) tells the story of Ewan, stolen from his family by fairies when he was a baby, and Colby, a boy who comes across a djinn while playing in the woods. When the two boys eventually meet, they get entangled in a battle between magical forces and their lives are forever altered.
