This is an okay book. I’d probably like it better if I read all three books. The basic plot is a group of magic beings (for lack of a better word) who are reincarnated when their world needs them. This first book in the trilogy is just John Arrowsmith’s remembering his past lives. Throughout this story, John is compelled by some part of his psyche to go on trips. During his journey (journeys??), he meets the other members of his family. Through these trips, journeys, whatever, the world is built and we meet many different types of people and creatures. I like the baby dragonhawk, Chaos. That was a cute scene. The book ends with John Arrowsmith remembering and being arrested for declaring who he is.
