In a time like the present, three young people dream of the fabulous ruins of a decaying city somewhere in the distant future called the Kalpa. The dreams of Ginny and Jack overtake them without warning into the minds of two inhabitants of the Kalpa—a would-be warrior, Jebrassy, and an inquisitive explorer, Tiadba. In turn, the dreams of Tiadba and Jebrassy carry them back, into the minds of Jack and Ginny. As for the dreams of Daniel, they are even stranger and more disquieting. Hunted by others with similar powers who seek the sum-runners on behalf of a fearsome godlike entity, Ginny, Jack, and Daniel are drawn despite themeselves into a mission to rescue the future of their dreams.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This complex, difficult, and beautifully written tale will appeal to sophisticated readers who prefer thorny conundrums to fast-paced action.” Publishers Weekly
“Charles Leggett’s narration flows with the action and maintains a steady pace through the long explicative passages. He is an apt guide through this dense and complex plot.” AudioFile
“Plunging readers into a visceral experience of cosmological theory and the big creation stories of mythology, this challenging and imaginative work will receive critical attention.” Library Journal
“In a post-human future, one city, guarded by reality generators and surrounded by the terrible maelstrom of Chaos, is the sole bastion of order…Fascinating.” Booklist
