His life is a bit of a mess, but that doesn't matter because after school he becomes the mighty Drift, a powerful warrior tasked with a quest to save the Warden Tree. In the darkness of his room, Jay skilfully moves Drift through the perilous land of Lyf, cutting through all the nightmare creatures that now haunt it. But what about the nightmares that lurk in the sleepy corners of his mind? Will he be able to defeat them?
