Passages #5:
Draven's Defiance

Scott Graham tried his best to sound more confident than he felt. He was from Odyssey—despite the bewildering new surroundings he couldn't explain. But Draven the prophet has been expecting him: Scott has been sent from another world to Marus, to fulfill the purposes of the Unseen One. In this bizarre world, time has stopped. In fact, everything has stopped. People stay exactly the same. Nature stands still. The weather no longer changes. Crops don't grow; fruit doesn't ripen, so the food supply dwindles. Draven, surprisingly, has orchestrated the stoppage to prove the Unseen One is the true god. Now Marus' corrupt monarch and his idolatrous wife have challenged Draven to a showdown to restart time. If the evil queen has her way, both the prophet and Scott, his chosen successor, will be killed. Scott finds himself swept up into a dangerous destiny where nothing is certain—not even his survival. Can he walk away before it's too late—or is it too late already?
