AN INTRIGUING DREAMWORLD WHERE HUMANITY’S FATE HANGS IN THE BALANCE.
Mandy Mirabelle is poised to inherit her family’s ancestral mental institution when a debilitating phobia of its eerie old wing puts her birthright at risk. Only her boyfriend Gordon knows what happened, but he’s a psychotic inpatient now and has completely lost his senses.
Committed to helping Mandy regain her inheritance, inventor Edward G. Perniferous uses an ingenious machine to transport himself into Gordon’s unconscious mind. There he encounters an epic dreamworld imbued with a magical history, and a crumbling island kingdom on the brink of a dragon attack. Gordon is the realm’s dispirited ruler, but he has little recollection of his past.
In the waking world, Mandy learns that her hospital patients are being used to test a military drug. Gordon is the primary test subject, and time is running out to save him. Something sinister is afoot. The drug is at the root of secret global agenda, and the only key to the planet’s salvation lies buried deep in Gordon’s mind.
Blending the genres of technothriller, epic fantasy, steampunk, geek culture and satire, Gilliam Ness has created a one-of-a-kind sci-fi series abounding with unforgettable characters, epic plots, and deep world-building. A magnificent adventure awaits.
