An imaginative tale of the last days (or are they?) of a mind seeking release from a world full of conflict by dreaming of lost heroes and heroines. The author paints a tempting Utopia which, although it might not really be all it seems, nevertheless leads the protagonist to choose between reality (or is it?) and a path from which there may be no return. A touching, mysterious and to me - but don't be put off by my interpretation - rather melancholy first novel.
