dc.description.abstract World of Fire is a Young Adult novel that describes the adventures of two siblings who must journey into a parallel world where they find themselves enlisted to stop the tyranny of an Archmage. Viktor Tamriel always felt that there was more to life than doing carpentry work in a small town far removed from civilization. In search of adventure, he meets an alternate version of himself named Cosmo, who claims to be a Time Mage from a different world in another timeline. Soon Viktor and his sister Jessica are far away from home entangled in a conflict that could decide the fate of every world. Along the way, Viktor gains a new love for the simple life he left behind and beings to understand the importance of family, community, and the true meaning of home. Sense of self is a prominent theme throughout the novel, as Viktor’s experiences with his doppelganger cause both men to question what they have become and the circumstances that made them thus. The meaning of love and family is explored as Cosmo experiences through the Tamriel siblings a relationship that he may have had if his life had been different. Ultimately Viktor learns to appreciate the blessings he has and find meaning in the people and places he loves, and Cosmo learns that there is always a chance to have a fresh start. en_US
