Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three friends set out in search of their identities — and a link to their past — in a provocative adventure that builds to a deeply satisfying ending.

Jacob awakens inexplicably in a gray, grim place called Locus, where people his age live in dormitories, wear identical gray uniforms, and eat spongy, tasteless food. Even worse than the dreary conditions is his realization that others have accepted this fate — something Jacob vows not to do. Setting out with two companions on a perilous journey, Jacob slowly unravels the horrifying truth about the people of Locus. As they journey through fear toward hope, they must choose between a past they cannot remember and a future they cannot predict.

Synopsis:

Three friends set out in search of their identities--and a link to their past--in a provocative adventure that builds to a deeply satisfying ending.

About the Author

Brian Keaney says, "I have always known there is a world that lies just beyond the borders of this one, and one day I woke up with the feeling that I wanted to explore that other place, to find the stories that are waiting in the darkness." He lives in London.
