Everyone who touches you transforms you, if only a little. But if you enter their minds and think what they have thought, in effect do what they have done…how complete will that transformation be? If Peniff had been born an ordinary man, his family would be safe—safe as anyone can be in a land torn apart by war. It is his singular gift, however, that causes his wife and children to be imprisoned and held hostage and him to be used as a tool. Caught up in a struggle between opposing warlords and refusing to play the game, Peniff elects to take the moral high road. This is the story of a man, in all other ways ordinary, rising above his fears to do what he must. Can he free his family before his betrayal comes to light? Moreover, what will he become before his journey is over? Thought Gazer, the second volume of The Ydron Saga, the first book of the prequel trilogy to Awakening, can be read as a standalone.

For the record, this is not a “John Parker hates white people” book. Anybody who knows me at all knows that to be the farthest thing from the truth. This book is meant to spark (if you so desire) an open, honest and painfully true conversation about the most polarizing subject in American society; Race and Racism. My hope is that after reading it (both white people and black people alike) will seek to find common ground and understand that we do have two different cultures and that we can “disagree without being disagreeable.”
If we are to succeed as a country in the future, it is time that everybody “got comfortable being uncomfortable”
