Notes from the author: “Without literature, art and music this world would be too melancholy to bare. In my own life, I need art to escape and to accurately display my thoughts. This is ultimately how I communicate. Every day is an opportunity to explore more of your mind. Go past the urges of self-destruction and adopt self admiration. To find salvation, one must create a sanctuary. I hope this book becomes a safe place for you just as much as it has become for me. Creating this world was a spiritual process, parts of my soul are embedded into the work. Enjoy.”
- Emerson Barrett
Embark upon the story of three brothers waking up along the shoreline of doom. Undergoing the process of rebuilding themselves from nothing. Only to realize their memories and sense of self has completely vanished. Where do the lost go when no one wants them? “I would truly be overjoyed if I could tell you that, after that day, things got better. But then I would be lying to you. And I won’t lie.
I am sorry, I won’t be sparing you my honesty. I won’t protect you with lies. At some point, you will cover your ears, close your eyes and wish I lied.”
How do you deal with losing your whole sense of self?
In the end of summer in 1875, three brothers begin to question the root of their own identity and where they came from. Seven years later in a mysterious town, the clues to their past start to unravel. And the past they have been searching for turns out it has been searching for them as well.
The world is a cruel master but it does not lie, and the truth will always in the end be revealed.
In this world you must rise from the ashes of your previous self and ultimately undergo a metamorphosis in the process.
