In 1880s Paris, a doctor encounters a statuette that can drive men mad, secret societies, and a bridge between worlds that threatens disastrous consequences. Throughout, he is assisted and opposed by historical figures such as Charley Dickens, the son living in his late father’s shadow; a young Sigmund Freud, and the ghost of the Marquis de Sade.
Heroic battles are not always won by the mighty. There are times when even the least likely among us play decisive roles. Less able physically than anyone he knows, but paranormally unique, Bardik is recruited by a pair of psychics in the hope that, by combining his talent with theirs, they can turn looming defeat into victory. In this, the concluding chapter to the Ydron Saga, a young man who has lost the use of his legs—someone whom earthly culture labels paraplegic—agrees to lend his telekinetic talents to the effort to bring down a tyrannical warlord.
Triad, the fourth volume of the Ydron Saga, is the third book of Awakening’s prequel trilogy.
