Chromaturgy is the ability to draft light from the visible spectrum into a material called luxin that can be shaped at the drafter's will. No one has a better grasp on the art of Chromaturgy than the Prism. And Gavin Guile is the Prism. The leader of the Chromeria, the most powerful man in the world, but he has a secret that threatens to destroy him and all he's worked for. He's running out of time. Almost two decades after the war with his twin brother that almost devastated the world, Gavin knows he only has a limited amount of time left in power. In that time, he must accomplish his goals in order to save himself and the ones he loves. Kip is a robust young boy who has never met his father, and his drug addict mother was never there for him. She manages to get herself killed by a rebelling Satrap who proclaims himself King. Her last act was the only thing she's ever done for her son, and it sets him on a path he never thought possible. A great coming of age fantasy full of political intrigue, excitement, and magic!
In a world where color is the basis of all magic, Kip has yet to realize his powers, but he soon begins to learn the truth behind the rift between his father--the current Prism--and uncle and discovers that time is running out for the world.
