Into a world of slumbering dust and anarchy, a young woman is thrown. How Janice came to this new city, and more importantly why, are mysteries. Someone or something has caused her to arrive; someone or something seems to be following her. The world she encounters is dark, and grey, and the people she meets there seem tired and battered down by the effort of living in their all-but-dead city. There are strange energies around, and one of the group, Darian, has been strangely affected by one of them. Still, they have hope, and they have what they think is a way out. Janice joins them on their journey, but she soon finds what looked like escape may in fact be something else altogether. The party's journey will not be easy, and things aren't helped by the Darian's increasingly erratic behaviour and the eerie visions he experiences. Janice tries to cope with the situation into which she's been thrust, and the small group try to hold themselves and each other together long enough to reach some sort of help or safe haven, but in a sense they are driving blind, and none of them know what might happen next. As energies converge and dangers increase, the people try to make sense of what is happening. Janice longs for home even as the others search for a new home, and things turn violent and desperate. The events that unfold seem both familiar and yet strange. Eventually, one truth is realised by them all: their lives and their beliefs will never be the same again.
