Tim Hunter Searches for the New Ruler of the Dreaming in Books of Magic #5

The Dreaming has a new ruler, and Tim Hunter is on a quest to meet with them, but first, he'll spend a little story time with Eve in the Dreaming's library. And, as we see in CBR's exclusive preview for Books of Magic #5, we'll all learn a little bit about several other residents of the Sandman's realm along the way.

With the Dreaming's long-standing librarian Lucien "indisposed," Eve greets Tim as he makes his way to the new Artificial Intelligence currently seated in the Sandman's throne (It happened earlier this month in The Dreaming #6). But before he's introduced to the new Lord of Dreams, Eve shares a story that redefines the story of two of the Dreaming's most famous residents, Cain and Abel.
