Aster Wood and the Lost Maps of Almara: Aster Wood, Book 1 Publisher's Summary

Experience the suspense and mystery of this top young adult series.
Broken. That's what the world is now. The Long Drought is over, but the rain that falls burns like acid on the flesh.
Young Aster Wood is weak compared to the other survivors who flock to the cities, the only places where a meal and fresh water can be had.
But when he finds a ragged piece of parchment in a hidden corner of his father's childhood home, he is pulled through the cosmos to a place no one on Earth knows exists.
Here, the grass grows green. The wolves glow like the full moon. The wizards play with ancient knowledge, delighted with simple spells that can bring dying plants back to life and make invisible that which they do not want seen.
And Aster is healthy again.
The heart condition that has plagued him since he was a toddler is suddenly absent, and Aster finds himself running - no, flying - across the countryside, as if he were born to do it.
Now, he must chase down the long-lost sorcerer, Almara, to discover the truth about his own family's past. And to learn what is yet to come for Earth.
