Jacob is the only one who can protect us all from a vengeful lunatic. But Jacob’s a tiny sixth grader who’s scared of his own shadow. And his only known talent is hiding. A misfit in his own home, a boy out of place in his own skin, Jacob has been hiding all his life—in his head, or behind his only friend. His kind of different just isn’t accepted. He thought hiding would keep him safe. But he was wrong. For Jacob’s hiding has buried more than one truth, more than one secret. Including a destiny and a duty that are his to fulfill. And a powerful talent. One that could doom his people. Or save them…if he can find the courage to stop hiding from the thing that terrifies him the most—the truth about who he is: A boy who likes boys. A boy with a destiny foretold in an ancient legend. A boy whose love could save us all.



   In Portalia’s garden, Earth’s children once played in harmony
   Never suspecting Portalia held the key to their ultimate destiny

   For in her garden Portalia holds many a secret door
   Through which life will one day spread its wings and soar

   Young humans, when they discovered these doors, were difficult to contain
   In their youthful eagerness, they inflicted much pain

   It was decided, humanity needed time to grow and mature
   So a period of seclusion, Portalians would need to endure

   After a time of darkness, and separation from her sister Earth
   A son of Portalia will return to the place of his father’s birth

   His soul will sing a song of harmony Portalia will hear
   Causing her portals to fling open, and new ones to appear

   His gates Portalia need not shut to protect against disaster
   For he is her guardian and protector, he is the portal master

   Like Portalia, he is humble, for power he does not seek
   He will stand in defense of all, be they mighty or meek

   His heart will be pure, full of love, with no malice, greed or hate
   His compassion will lift the burden of pain and sorrow’s heavy weight

   Once and forever, many worlds he will reunite
   So that all peoples may pursue their destinies, and to the stars take flight

   Upon his arrival, Portalia will rejoice and sing
   For he is her guardian, the portal master, and most of all, her people’s King
