“Not all who wander are lost.”
One issue Hyam (the male protagonist) faces is that he doesn’t fit in. From the beginning – in the first few pages of the book – Hyam is forced to accept that that his father is not his father, his mother is not his mother and he’s not fully human.
He’s placed on a road that’s not of his choosing. A women who’s been the bane of his existence since he was a child tells him that war is coming, and that his personal feelings are not important.
Hyam has a choice to make: he can either dwell on the unfairness of life or he can use the amazing abilities he has and move beyond who he thinks he is and who society expects him to become. If he accepts this quest, he can never go home again.
