Alastair Ramsden was barely twelve years old when he witnessed the brutal death of his father. Growing up orphaned during the Scottish War of Independence, Alastair struggled to survive. The only place he knew to save him was an old oak tree in the middle of an upland field where he gained the ability to cross over into the 4th-dimensional elemental kingdom of Akasha. It was there he first connected with elementals of the sun, who helped him on his way to self-discovery. The Divine Queen Mother, great fire spirit of the earth ruled the elemental kingdom. When she came to Alastair’s aid by opening a portal into the grand oak tree leading him into Akasha, so he might escape a group of chasing English assailants, the journey begins as he must find the key to his escape and survival. His spiritual journey takes him through the woods, across Loch Lomond, and up into the highlands of Scotland in pursuit of a Ranger Elf who governs the appointed lands from the peak of the tallest mountain. Alastair and his gnome friend set out around the clock in a perilous quest, leading them to find that the night belongs to lunar fiends of the moon, who hunt those that walk by day beyond dusk. After being separated, it’s up to Alastair to last each night alone as he crosses paths with a cast of elemental creatures. In order to survive, Alastair must sacrifice everything to make it to the top of Ben Nevis in this multi-layered, Braveheart meets Phantastes inspired tale
