Orion is a young man who has no idea of his true origins. After his father dies, he finds his way into a magical world that lies parallel to our own. He has much to learn about himself and his own abilities.

I didn't think anything would really match Harry Potter but this book could be a contender.

Orion's father dies unexpectedly under very strange circumstances. After Orion follows a boy he sees in the forest near his home, he finds himself sudde

A fantastic read. I couldn't put it down from start to finish. As big of a Harry Potter fan as i was, this to me was better. It filled in all the blanks J.K.R left out
