He has been a dragon with a boy on his back. He has been a scholar, a warrior, a lover, and a thief. But "he" is in fact nothing more than a spark of idea, a character in the mind of Sylvia Harrison, 73, award-winning author. But Sylvia won't live forever. And he's trapped inside her head. When she dies, so will he. Now Sylvia is starting a new novel. Of course he's got a part in it. But he also has a notion. He thinks he knows how he and Sylvia can step off the wheel of mortality altogether. All he has to do is convince her.
